Awesome cruise!

Just a short note to say that this is a really good cruise, really well-organized – and I’d been on quite a few before in my life. Everything you could ask for in a cruise like that and more – the food, the service, you name it! Good job, Indochine!

Spectacular scenery and delightful cruise

We both enjoyed the cruise a lot, thank you very much! It felt like we were cruising through some Lord of the Rings landscape, with all those limestone towers around us. My husband is a photographer and he couldn’t be any happier as he took some fantastic shots of the sunset as well as the sunrise. The cruise ship itself is up to standard as well, the crew spoke good English and were very helpful all the time. Good job everyone!

A classy hen party

We went on this cruise as a group of girls as one of us was getting married shortly thereafter. I can’t speak for Cassie but I think this must have been one of the best cruises of her life, and it was definitely the classiest hen party you could think of! Three splendid days of sunbathing, stunning views and just having a whale of a time together. If you’re looking for a good cruise in Lan Ha, this one is a no-brainer!

Pleasant and hassle-free

It was the perfect trip we were hoping for, so smooth, hassle-free and relaxing. They pick you up from the hotel, take you straight to the ship and welcome you with smiles as well as a drink! Everything is organized perfectly, all the meals and all the attractions. Definitely worth your time and your money, I’ll do my best to go on another cruise with them one day! Grazie mille!

Excellent

We spent blissful three days & two nights on board of Indochine and we couldn’t be any happier with it. It was just what the doctor had ordered – nothing but fun and relaxation throughout! We thought the food served on board was quite wonderful, as was the setting where it was served (you’ll need to see that restaurant for yourself to fully grasp what I mean here). Anyway, don’t miss out on this one – it’s the one cruise you’ve been looking for!

A good way to see the area

I’m not a huge fan of cruises myself but still found this one to be pleasant and thoroughly relaxing. It was nice to see the bay in such as leisurely way, from the deck of a grand ship like that. Come to think of it, I actually spent most of my time on board of Indochine in my room – on my room’s private balcony, to be exact, with a book in my hand. Served the purpose of visiting the bay perfectly, so it’s a definite YES from me.
