Characterful boat, excellent cabin with balcony and the food was first rate. The crew was attentive, cheerful and professional throughout. A memorable experience during our Vietnam holiday.
What a fantastic time we had. The best part of our trip to Vietnam. The junk is fabulous and the staff great. Would love to do it all again. Thank you !
The boat was really charming with a lovely period feel. Upper and lower decks outside gave a sense of space so you didn't feel you were on top of other guests. Food was excellent and again tables were well spaced out. The activities were well organised and the staff were friendly and efficient. Cabin had a good sized balcony and shower with hot water that didn't run out! We had booked a one night trip and the only regret was didn't do two.
We stayed on the boat for one night but wished we had stayed for the two nights ( there are two options available ). The cabin was very clean and we had a large double bed. The bathroom was big and very clean. The staff was amazing but the food average. There were extra activities during the trip. Don't miss the morning swim. The view of the bay just amazing , especially the sunset!
The boat is gorgeous, with very comfortable and relatively spacious rooms. the food fantastic, and the staff were incredibly attentive. There is clearly a lot of pride on this boat. There is a lot to do on the cruise as well, including sightseeing of a floating village, cave visit, and a nice dip in Halong Bay on a warm day. Definitely a highlight of our whole trip to Asia.
Peony Cruise was recommended and booked by Ha Long Hub, a good choice! We opted for a premium on the higher deck, definitely worth the additional cost. Crew very attentive and food better than expected.
Do an 2 nights trip if you can, for the night-time atmosphere when moored up and see dawn twice in Halong Bay, great stuff.
The boat was beautiful, our cabin spacious with a comfort bath and balcony. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food was varied and delicious.
We booked for two nights, three days and were glad to have the opportunity to travel deeper into the bay.
I had been warned about pollution but was pleasantly surprised to see the bay cleaner than most areas we visited. At the floating village I noticed that people would fish any rubbish from the water in order to keep the area clean.
Although the drive was long, it was great for us all to be out of the bustle and close confines of Hanoi for a couple of nights.
The overnight trip was exceptional. The bay was beautiful, we enjoyed seeing a sunset a cross the bay. Waking up to beautiful scenery and visiting a floating fishing village. The staff were some of the friendliest people we met, who were proud of their work and of the bay. The food was some of the nicest we have had on this trip.
