Overview

Huong Hai Sealife Cruise launched their Halong tours back in 2013 and have since earned themselves a name as one of the best cruises in the Halong cruise market. Displaying a style inspired by the ocean itself, the Huong Hai Sealife vessel boasts 26 guest cabins across 3 spacious decks.

The large panoramic windows that adorn virtually every bit of wall space inside the ship offer spectacular views of the passing scenery, and let’s without even mentioning the private jacuzzi in guests’ rooms- imagine taking in the surrounding view from your very own hot tub. There is also a fully-stocked wine cellar onboard offering an array of both high-end Vietnamese and international bottles.

Apart from the obvious luxury, Huong Hai Sealife are also highly commended on their adherence to international safety standards; they are, as of now, one of the only vessels in all of Halong that is double-shelled. Safety, luxury, and top-notch service make Huong Hai Sealife a safe bet for any who choose to cruise with them.

Coming back again next year!

We sailed with Halong Huong Hai Sealife cruise last spring and enjoyed it tremendously! We wanted a quiet, gentle cruise and the staff members make it all possible. The specialty restaurant was the greatest and the free style dining was what we really were looking for! We will always sail with Huong Hai sealife cruise halong which is a fine vessel! The packages available on the cruise helped us maintain our expenses! Everyone on board was helpful and interested in making our excursion enjoyable. Our cabin was nice with a private balcony! The view was fantastic! All the activities while we were in Halong bay were well-organised. Again, we will book the same stateroom for next year!

Excellent services!

Halong Huong Hai Sealife cruise knows how to do it right! The quality of service is amazing. I am not going in to a lot of details about my trip in Halong bay. I just want to point out that it is worth the extra money to be on this boat. The food was delicious and the restaurant service team is impeccable. When we were out and about we never had to wait in line for anything! Downside the Bay was a bit more crowded than we expected. The excursions were incredible and suitable for all ages. We loved so much relaxing under the sun. We had a chance to explore islands and caves. The guide did a good job on keeping us well informed and she knew the places very well. There was the Taichi lesson where everybody had a relaxing time on the sundeck. The mini spa service was excellent too, should give it a try when you are there.    Overall the cruise was fantastic!

Great Excursion!

I chose this cruise because its ads showed up on time when I wanted to visit Halong Bay. Embarkation went smoothly and we were on the ship in no time. We were able to get into our room as soon as we had lunch. Overall the whole ship is really attractive. I went to the spa and got this amazing hot stone massage. Such a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. The cooking course was interesting and now I know how to make delicious fresh spring rolls. . The service was good I couldn’t expect more. The highlight was the out-door activities such as: kayaking and discovering caves around Halong Bay, Tai chi class every morning on the sundeck where you can socialize and also the squid fishing at night was just thrilling.  Highly recommend Halong Huong Hai Sealife cruise!

Great Cruise on the Huong Hai Sealife, not so great weather!

Our Halong Huong Hai Sealife Cruise was wonderful. Halong Bay sights were pretty worth the trip. We visited the well-hidden Caves, Bai Tu Long Bay and fishing village etc We also had great dishes on board which my wife loved so much. Our room was beautiful with a private balcony that brought us amazing view. The guide was fantastic and we were all well-informed about where we were. We got out onto the clean water and did kayaking which was really cool activity in the Bay. We had this cool squid fishing activity at night and joined board game with other passengers. The only pity was the weather a bit bad that we couldn’t enjoy the best view of Halong Bay. Overall that was a great trip with Huong Hai Cruise Halong. I’d recommend this cruise!

What a great 3 days 2 nights excursion!

I was joining a group of friends for 3 days 2 nights cruise vacation. They chose Halong Huong Hai Sealife cruise because of the date and the price. The embarkation was very easy and quick. We were in our cabin within half an hour of arriving at the cruise terminal.   The ship was new and very clean. It didn’t require a lot of walking to get from the restaurants to the entertainment which is good for someone with motility problems like myself.   Our assigned cabin was wonderfully large and beautifully furnished.  We found the food to be good in dining area; the buffet was also fine as it was the traditional dining style.   The service was fine. Our cabin was kept clean.   We received excellent service all along our voyage. We really were interested in touring off the ship as the landscapes were beautiful and the activities were exotic. There were so many things to do and enjoy on board as well such as the Taichi class on the sundeck. I think that young families and group of friends would enjoy this ship. There seemed to be a lot of children on board and the staff seemed to keep them busy so that the parents could have some time of their own.

Trip of a lifetime!

This trip really exceeded my expectations. I’ve travelled quite a lot but this was one of the best natural cruises that I know. From the moment I embarked I was wrapped in the arms of the cruise staff, truly a memorable trip. The scenery, caring staff members, good food, intelligent and knowledgeable guide completed this wonderful holiday. Although it was the rainy season it only sprinkled once during the day. My room was a bit smaller than I thought but it was very comfortable and furnished. I love this trip so much and would remomend this Halong Huong Hai Sealife Cruise to everyone.
