Being two backpackers on a budget this was a massive treat. We wanted to really remember halong bay as we knew it was going to be a trip to remember. After lots of research and hearing bad rumours about other cruise ships we decided to pay for luxury. And luxury was exactly what we got. Fab and friendly service, really nice tour guide who made an effort to get to know everyone, and had good knowledge on halong bay. Lovely traditional clean rooms. fantastic food, and lots of it. Lovely kayaking trip. The cave trip was little frustrating as you were experiencing the cave with about 2-3000 other people. Waking up to the views of halong bay was worth every penny. The only thing we found a little dis heartening was the fact we set off on the first day quite late but it didn't change the fact that the trip was amazing.
The wonderful trip with Royal Palace Cruise.
We, Khoa, Huong, Linh have been far more than lucky when being placed on Royal Palace Cruise for Halong One night tour. The first sight of Royal Palace boat is further than we expected, authentic and charm. Entered the ship, it was absolutely clean, shiny and elegant. The spectacular view from our bed room looking out to Halong bay had stunted us completely, million dollar view for the humble price that we paid. Believe it or not, bath room also has ocean view. We also enjoyed beautiful food being served by professional, friendly staff with smiles; We were totally happy from the beginning of the trip to the end of the trip. The welcoming speech of charming manager ALEX with fluently English had made us feel warm from the start. He has been so helpful with great senses of humor. He served us professionally and always made us feel safe and homely.To us he is the one with the mark of A+++ whom we have ever met.
Alex, you are the best manager and tour guide, after the cruise we recommended you and the Royal Palace Cruise. Many friends of ours in VN and also in Australia had taken you name and Royal Palace Cruise as best resource. We are sure you will greet a lot of guests by your professional services. We enjoyed all the activities you set for the cruise. We missed our fun Kayaking; the warm karaoke and squid fishing on board. Your cruise is highly recommended.
