We were really impressed with those limestone karsts in the bay, they are absolutely wonderful! The crew were all splendid, they spoke English and were all extremely polite and well-behaved. It was a priviledge to spend some time on this ship!
I had a great time with my wife on Calypso Cruise and we can recoommend this ship to everyone! It is really professional and very high quality. They take care of every detail and also provide many exciting activities during your stay on board. We particularly enjoyed the cooking class (my wife Irina is a chef) and also the Tai Chi class early in the morning.
I had a good time in Lan Ha even though the weather was bad. The crew did everything in their powers to make my stay on the ship very comfortable. The ship is very well managed, it's very clean and the food in the restaurant is really tasty (although the dishes should be a little bigger in my opinion).
All our family loved this place very much, and the ship itself is a spectacular vessel. So well-crafted, with beautiful wooden carvings and attention paid to every detail. Our guide Sonny did a marvellous job - thanks for everything, we will never forget our stay in the bay!
Go ahead and treat yourself to this fabulous cruise, you won't regret it! These guys do a fantastic job at making you feel at home on the ship, from the very moment you step on board. And then there are loads of exciting activities to choose from! My personal favourite was probably swimming in the waters of that stunning pristine lagoon they took us to, but chances are you'll enjoy anything they have on offer. I loved it so much I've already promised myself to go back there one day!!!
Calypso Cruise is wonderful! Try it and you won't be disappointed. It's such an elegant ship and the service is excellent. As for the bay itself, it's beyond beautiful. Must-see!
We visited Lan Ha Bay during our trip around Asia and this was one of our favourite places! The rocky formations you can see there are unbelieveable. The ship was also very beautiful and all the staff were super polite and helpful.
