Orchid cruises are just great!
2016-11-16

Orchid cruises are the best way to visit Ha Long Bay for two days! We booked with this tour operator and we couldn't be any happier.

Really enjoyed the class of Vietnamese cuisine, our tour guide Johnny was very helpful and we had a good time kayaking & visiting the floating village. We can recommend Orchid Cruises to everyone! Lots of love guys.


Thank you Orchid Cruises!
2016-11-09

We booked an Orchid Cruise for 2 days in Ha Long Bay. The boat is brand new and the food is delicious! Lovely BBQ and a happy sunset party. The cruise is a great option if you travel as 2 adults, with your wife or girlfriend. Thanks a lot again!


Beyond satisfied!
2016-11-10

Thank you for the best arrangement of my trip to Ha Long Bay on Orchid cruise. It matched our pricepoint and it honestly was our favourite part of visiting Southeast Asia. 

We were happy with all service on the ship. Especially the food and crew service. Also impressed with the activities, the local people were spectacular. Our kids, 8 and 10 years old respectively, both loved it too! Highly recommend this tour operator.


Orchid Cruises Are Just Perfect
2017-09-25

My wife and I have recently enjoyed a wonderful adventure on board an awesome cruise boat in Vietnam. The place we went is called Lan Ha Bay and I had never heard of it. I don’t know why this bay isn’t world famous, it’s certainly world class. Bai Tu Long Bay was quite wonderful as well! The boat was exceptional. There are only about 20 cabins on board and they are roomy with large windows opening onto private balconies. We booked the cheapest option and it was fantastic. We could only guess what the Orchid exclusive suite must be like. The company collected us at our hotel in Hanoi and took us straight to the quayside. We visited an island called Cat Ba which was really great, stayed two nights and my wife even had a top rate spa treatment on the boat. I stayed in the bar and hit the cocktails! What a trip.


Not a bad prize
2017-08-22

I live in Ho Chi Minh City and won the cruise in a prize draw at a big charity event. It was really good. Our flights to Hanoi and two nights in a hotel there were included so it was quite a good prize. I had a few days coming up that I could take off and so went for it. I spend quite a bit of time in Hanoi on business so I just stayed close to the hotel and relaxed. The cruise people picked me up early in the money and transferred me to the Orchid cruise boat, which was fine. Despite living in Vietnam for 3 years this was my first visit to Ha Long Bay and I didn't know what to expect. I had read a lot of negative stuff about pollution and litter and was a bit apprehensive, but it was not as bad as I expected, though it does need sorting out. It was a good three days though and great to get out of the smog and into some clean air and nice scenery.


The best cruise line in all of Halong
2016-11-06

Halong Orchid cruise is simply the best. Thank you so much for the amazing service! They drove us straight from Hai Phong to the cruise ship and were very helpful. Recommended!


Pleasantly surprised. Would recommend Orchid cruise!
2016-11-04

Halong Orchid Cruise and their staff helped us design our best cruise ever. It was our highlight in Vietnam. We booked this trip well ahead of departure, saved us money and time, and we just got taken care of the entire trip.

We were happy with all service with this cruise service, and the food service was great. Also impressed with visiting the floating houses, the local people very lovely too. I can highly recommend this company!


Beauty all around, laughter in the bay.....
2016-11-07

Thank you very much guys! We booked a single night for Ha Long Bay on the Orchid Cruise ship and we were overwhelmed even with the short amount of time we had how great it all was. The staff leader made us laugh out loud plenty of times, and people were generally just very friendly. Our tour guide mr Khanh made us feel like local people.


Go with Orchid Cruise!
2016-11-07

We went with Orchid Cruise and we definitely feel we made the right decision. Our guide introduced us to the best prices compared to many other luxury cruise lines and it was a no-brainer. The itinerary is unique and different to other trips that don't visit Lan Ha Bay and its wonderful, isolated beaches. We visited both Ha Long Bay and Lan Ha Bay on this trip, but also another beauty out there, Bai Tu Long Bay! Visited astonishing caves, did kayaking. I would do it all over again!


Keep it up, always smile!
2016-11-08

I just returned from three days on a Halong Bay cruise on Orchid line. The customer service was good and the staff were very enthusiastic and helpful during the entire trip. They manage to make every guest feel personally welcome. Thanks to all of you, keep up the great job!
