": Awesome service by the staff - friendly"
: Awesome service by the staff - friendly, speaks good english, helpful. Good food but wish there were more local Vietnamese dishes instead
Will be great if customers can pick their rooms. Waiting time for shuttle service was slightly long.

"Thank you"
This is not to say the activities weren't good - I think we would have preferred something less touristic. Apparently if you stay 2 days you can kayak around on your own. This is something we would have preferred rather than the fishing village and cave. Oh well! We enjoyed ourselves very much.

Thank you!

Everything was well organized with nice and friendly people around us all the time. We felt we had good value for the money spent. Will not hesitate to use BestPrice Vietnam next time.

Lovely boat with nice amenities, good itinerary including Bai Tu Long Bay, excellent food, friendly staff
only negative was an unpleasant odour coming from bathroom area in our room, perhaps due to location next to communal toilets

"Cruise was by far one of the best things we did whilst Vietnam"
Cruise was by far one of the best things we did whilst Vietnam!! Whilst Halong Bay is beautiful in its own right, Paloma really make it the ultimate experience. The cabin was second to none, food exquisite and the staff wonderful and amazing. They truly aim to please everyone! There was the perfect balance between activities and relaxation. Honestly, Paloma Cruise is the only cruise option to see the best of Halong Bay!!
