An experience of a lifetime

All staff treated us like VIPs. The rooms offered magnificent views of the bay. It was surreal and felt like Mother Nature was always just a stone’s throw away. The activities and excursions kept us busy throughout the day. I specially had a great time making spring rolls and squid fishing in the evening. Seriously it was a fantastic experience for our family.”

Book your cruise, you won’t regret it!

I was blown away by the upgrade that glory Legend treated us to. A truly wonderful experience – I can’t recommend them highly enough. My wife and I felt as if we stayed in a floating hotel. The service was exceptional and all the staff members were polite. The trips to the different attractions were very well organized with a funny but brilliant tour guide.”

A 5-star review is an understatement!

They gave us an amazing 2 day/1 night cruise in one of the world’s most beautiful locations. The top deck was perfect for relaxation while enjoying the sheer magnificence of Halong Bay. The cabins were clean and the food was fantastic throughout. The activities were also great and provided unique opportunities to explore Halong Bay. Lastly, the car service to and from Hanoi was comfortable and left right on schedule.”

The cruise was intimate in the sense that you build relationship with the other guests on board. The trips from our boat to the tourist spots were all very good, well organized and our guide was really knowledgeable about the sites that we visited.

Best tour guide ever

My girlfriend and I made the tour 3 days/2 nights in August and it was absolutely amazing. We had a fantastic tour guide, LING was the best ever. She has a great knowledge about Halong Bay. She was super helpful and gave us suggestions on what to do while in Vietnam. She also has a good sense of homour, we loved all her funny stories. Thank you LING and your team, you made our trip unforgettable!

Excellent

We went on a trip for one night, one of the best days I’ve had in Vietnam. When we arrived we felt immediately very welcome. The meals on the boat were excellent and there was always something you liked, for everyone. The trips (going to the caves, kayaking and more) we’re organized well and everyone (young and old) can join it. I want to say thanks to crew. They were very helpful and hard working bartender!!!

Halong Bay was beautiful. A visit to a floating village, sailing between the beautiful limestone formations, a visit to the caves, entertainment on board. All nice experiences that were framed with delicious meals. And then also spending two nights on board in a beautiful, spacious room!

Excellent

Accommodations are very good. Bed, bathroom, etc. On top of the boat you have chairs to lie and sit on from where you came across the exceptional scenery. There are several boat options on the site however I highly recommend this. The crew attendance is very good. The food also very nice.

Friendly tour

The staff were lovely and the boat was very clean. The traditional Vietnamese food was watered down for western palates. For me the food was ok but I would have loved more traditional Vietnamese food. The set menu was delicious..

We took a two-day and one-night trip on Garden Bay Cruise. It takes four hours to transfer from Hanoi Hotel to Halong Bay. There is a break in the middle. All the trips are scheduled according to a pre-programmed agenda. The activities were exciting and the dining quality was good. It is the perfect journey!

Wow Au Co Cruise is pretty special

This four story sailing boat is such a great place to stay. It’s like a floating hotel and better than any other boat I’ve ever been on. I thought there food was some of the best we had in Vietnam as well. Our room or cabin was pretty neat also the bathroom was very high class. We loved the kayaking, and the cave was so cool. This was a really good trip and I would do it again if we ever return. Bar prices were a bit steep but I suppose it’s like a top hotel. The wife was happy though, so I was happy. Sitting on the top deck with a cold beer watching the world go by was well cool.

A Fabulous Family Trip

Having just returned to England following an amazing holiday in Vietnam I thought I’d write a review about the best bit, Our Glory Legend Halong Bay Cruise. I’ve wanted to visit Vietnam ever since I saw a travel programme about it a few years ago. We were a little uncertain as we have two small children but it worked out perfectly. The cruise in this most picturesque bay proved to be the best family experience. The children found life on the ship really exciting and out family room was extremely luxurious. We had breakfast delivered to our room and sat on our own balcony enjoying great food as we sailed through some of the prettiest scenery I’ve ever seen. I just wished we’d booked for longer. A huge thank you to the staff on the ship who worked non stop to make sure we all enjoyed ourselves.

Nice ride from Hanoi to Halong

We opted for the 3 days and 2 nights on the Glory cruise. We were picked up at our hotel Hanoi and taken on a bus early. The ride took a few hours, but it was nice to be able to watch the countryside roll by. Beautiful area. We stopped at a few places along the route to buy some trinkets and grab some snacks.. The bus was full but comfortable for the entire journey to Halong bay. The tourist shops along the way were well liked by the children. It is a bit touristy but gives you a good idea of what is available in Vietnam to buy as gifts. The Halong Glory legend cruise was great. Best seafood I’ve ever eaten!

Lovely time with Glory Legend Cruise

Glory Legend Cruise and the crew were amazing! The cruise ship is gorgeous with beautiful appointments in both the bedroom and the public areas. The food was outstanding and the service was champion. Excursions were very informative and full of good sights, the bay provided lots of photo opportunities. The weather – perfect! Considering its rainy season, we only had a tiny bit of rain. Service: Staff were friendly and always looking to help. The entire experience was wonderfully luxurious. I give my highest recommendation to take Glory Legend Cruise.

Fabulous trip for a celebratory birthday

Hubby decided that he wanted to visit Vietnam for a milestone birthday. We were greeted by a number of employees who could not have treated us better. The two-day excursion was brilliant from start to finish with an exceptional space on the second floor, followed by excellent food and exceptional service by the entire team. If you want to visit Vietnam and visit Halong Bay, we would like to revive Indochina Sails for a luxurious stay with outstanding hospitality.

Thank you Glory Legend Cruise

We booked the Halong Glory Legend Cruise. The company’s bus collected us from our hotel in Hanoi and delivered us to the quayside for the start of our trip. The boat was surprisingly comfortable, with our room looking a bit like a normal hotel room. The bathroom was lovely. I liked the caves, which was so much bigger than I expected. The food was really good as well. The only down side was the amount of rubbish in the water, in places it really is bad. It needs cleaning up and people need to stop throwing it in the water. But apart from that it was a really good trip.

All aboard the good ship Glory Legend

I have enjoyed ocean cruises, a Nile cruise, a Mekong River cruise and now the best of the lot, a Halong Bay Cruise. Great scenery, great food, great accommodation and great people. Highlights for me were the cave and the floating village which was an amazing look into other people’s lives. I thought this company got the balance right between organized trips and relaxation. I also loved the sight of the lights from other boats at night when we moored up in a sheltered bay.

A superb 3 days

I have just returned home after an amazing holiday in Vietnam. The highlight of which was three days in Halong Bay, wining and dining on Halong Glory Legend cruise, a beautiful old style trading junk. The ship looked amazing and was even better when we got on it. The cabin was superb, everything was first rate. And what a bay! It is one of the most stunning places I have ever seen hands down. The younger people onboard went off in Kayaks, but we just stayed onboard, relaxing on the sundeck, enjoyed a couple of cocktails and thanked our lucky stars for being able to enjoy this wonderful country. The people were so kind to us. I hope we can afford to come back some time in the future.
