"We had a wonderful time in Halong Bay"
We had a wonderful time in Halong Bay. Paloma cruise was amazing. The boat, the rooms and the service was great.
As we are vegetarians, the cook made us vegetarian food. It was the best food we had on our hole stay in Vietnam.
We have, and we will recommend both Best price Vietnam, and Paloma cruise to our friends.

"Activities were well-planned"
ctivities were well-planned and there was adequate leisure time, kayaking at Halong bay was a great experience.
Food portion was inadequate.

"We enjoyed the trip very much. "
We enjoyed the trip very much. Paloma Cruise was perfect for our family of 11, there are sufficient activities to keep us entertained throughout the 2 days. I personally skipped a few activities like Tai Chi (6am!) and Squid Fishing at night to catch some quiet time in the beauitful boat. Halong Bay is beautiful and a definite highlight of our Hanoi trip.
The sunset party was a good time to relax after an afternoon of kayaking. Sangria with glorious view of the sunset!
The meals are well-prepared and plentiful onboard Paloma. There are of course hits and misses but the wide options are sure to keep fussy eaters well fed. The cave we visited on day 2 is beautiful and the steps provided a good workout! All in all, I'll recommend Paloma to any friends looking to visit Halong Bay.
I think there are fruits and juice for those who prefer non-alcoholic beverages.

"Nice boat.nice staff especial "David""
Nice boat.nice staff especial "David".Good service
Got a bad stomach on board of the food/drinks. Maybe the program had too many activities, not much alone time
from Sweden on Sep 3, 2014
"Thank you"
Thank you for organising our trip which we really enjoyed. A really great trip that surpassed my expectations. My memory of doing tai-chi on deck in the early morning with the view over Halong Bay will stay with me forever
from Adelaide, Australia on Aug 22, 2014
"Beautiful junk"
Beautiful junk, well catered and friendly staff …………………………….
Expected to spend the major portion of our time on the advertised Paloma cruise boat, which we paid for but instead we were transferred to another smaller basic boat for the main part of our tour. We were disappointed that this meant we did not have access to our cabin, balcony and privacy.…………………………
from Nuenen, Netherlands on Jul 24, 2014
"very satisfactory"
very satisfactory, We were very happy with the service you and the rest of the bestprice team provided,
the only small negative comment I can make would be on behalf of my girlfriend regarding the food. As she is Vietnamese the menu was not quite to her taste but for the rest everything was fine.
