Had a great overnight through halong bay. Captain and staff were marvellous. Quality of Food a massive surprise and bonus. Rooms were large, bathrooms huge for a boat (even own jacuzzi bath). Short excursion good also especially the caves. Halong bay is one of the natural wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon in the sea. Indochina is a great company to escort you there.
My husband and I did the 2 day/1 night excursion to Halong Bay and had a wonderful time! The crew was so helpful and accommodating, and the meals were delicious. We couldn't get over our stunning views throughout the cruise, whether in our bedroom, from the dining hall, or the deck. The bedroom was great and had a proper bathroom (shower and toilet). The only warning I would give is there is a bit of waiting time when you get to the harbor, both at drop off and pick up (about an hour or so). Otherwise, everything was seamless, and we highly recommend this tour! It is a very relaxing break from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi.
We did the one night two days cruise with Indochina Sails. The boat was very comfortable. The staff were outstanding. Friendly, professional and helpful. Thank you David, Ha and the crew, you have been really fantastic ! Halong Bay was beautiful and breathtaking. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Food was plentiful and of good quality. We were in the 24 room boat. I would highly recommend Indochina Sails Cruises. We will use them again when we return to Vietnam. Rohan
Sailed on Indochina Junk no. 4 from Halong Bay for a 1 night cruise. We were upgraded to the Pres Suite - an amazing room - huge, with a vast en-suite with Jacuzzi bath, shower cubicle etc. etc... Fab. The food was wonderful and like most visitors, they need to change the way round. Buffet for lunch - sit down main meal for the evening. The weather was glorious for beginning April and we visited the "Amazing Caves" and other islands to climb and swim. However, this is really a 24 hour cruise, as we boarded at 12.30pm Sat and disembarked 11.30am Sun morn - so a bit of a swizz here. Best to go for a 2 night cruise really.... But whatever - a must visit and Indochina were fantastic hosts....
Had the 2 days 1 night cruise. Nice boat with very nice rooms. The actual time on board is short, board at noon time and disboard at noon time the next day, so only 1 day on boat. Was a very pleasant cruise
From the moment myself and the better half boarded the ship we were totally looked after by Annie the ship director and Bella her wonderful tour guide.... They are Absolutely fantastic and had all the time in the world for any questions we had. The room on board was comfy and big enough for our trip around Halong bay. Top tip leave the aircon on as the room can get a bit warm and stuffy.... The food was excellent and there was a great choice... The lunch was a set menu which was very tasty, with the dinner being a hot buffet with a large choice of different food types. Kept me going up for more.....Yummy.... Also the overnight trip comes with a couple of tours that are brilliant and worth the effort (you will see what I mean when ya get there) Anyways travellers in a nut shell well worth the price and a fantastic way to see more of vietnam. Enjoy your travels.....
We spent one night in Halong Bay with Indochina Sails. Our host for the trip was Annie who was excellent! The food on board was very good and it was very relaxing to sit on the sun deck and watch the sun set. The scheduled stops were very busy places and this somewhat detracts from the magic of this amazing place. Do be warned that some rooms are very noisy at night as the boats generators run throughout the night. If travelling with large bags the rooms are very cramped (but what do you expect on a boat!).
