"Very funny guy"

"Beautiful boat"
Beautiful boat, halong bay was lovely, kayaking was great, met some really nice people there. Staff were mostly friendly and shared lots of interesting facts. They made an effort to seat us with people who we would get on with so that we made friends with the cruise. They lete us try snake vodka for free which was cool. The bartender was great and we had good cocktails. The food was plentiful. Had a nice view from the deck and also in the dining room. We were also allowed to stay up and chat on the deck and order drinks until late which was nice.
Food was plentiful but not always delicious, my friend was vegetarian and whilst they did give her different options they were quite plain and not tasty. On one occasion they also gave her the chicken curry they had served us but just fished out the chicken. She noticed because she saw a remaining small piece of chicken in it and it smelt of chicken. She asked them about this and they took it away and gave her a bowl of peanuts instead! Very strange. They also made us do squid fishing for a while but it was clear we couldn't have caught any squid - one of the guides told us it wasn't the right time of year for it and there was also nowhere to put the fish which made it obvious we weren't going to catch them!

"Excellent value for money"
Excellent value for money. Delicious food. Good service.
The food was delicious, but we found it to be too much food. The itinerary was very busy, not much time for relaxing but good to be able to see/do so much in a short period.

"Clean and modern junk with great food."
Clean and modern junk with great food. It wasn't too crowded with gave us a more intimate experience, which we enjoyed! Going to Bai Tu Long Bay on the first day was also delightful because it was off the beaten path. We didn't seem to see other boats there, compared to the relatively congested Halong Bay.
The itinerary is too jam packed. Though they say everything is optional, with a smaller group there seems to be more pressure to partake in the activities. They could probably eliminate the cooking demonstration and such. More lounging time would be great!

"The trip to Halong Bay"
The trip to Halong Bay was excellent as were the cruise staff and our guide David.
I would rate all elements of the cruise as a 9 and my only comment on what could be improved would be making sure that the passenger's from the previous 3 day tour who spend the 2nd night with the new group should be included at the same dining area if at all possible so they can socialize with the other passengers.

I understand this might be difficult with larger numbers but there were only 14 passengers on the boat for our tour so thought they might have enjoyed joining the group together.

"This was an excellent trip for me and my parents"
This was an excellent trip for me and my parents, starting from the very moment we got on board. The staffs were excellent, the Halong Bay view was beautiful and the activities were fun
The only drawback was that we should have stay longer :)
