Wonderful bay & wonderful cruise!
June 15, 2020

Everything about Peony Cruise is excellent! The service and the smiling staff, the delicious food they serve, the rooms - oh, and there's also that bay you can see when you look out of the your (panoramic) window! I wouldn't trade this experience for anything else. If you haven't been to Ha Long yet, then Peony is the way to do it!


A great, great trip!
February 29, 2020

Peony Cruise is the best! It wasn't my first time in Halong Bay, so I could clearly see what a fantastic job they do on this ship. You really feel welcome with them, from the very moment you arrive. I had a great time participating in all the on-board activities - I found myself to be a decent cook and to my great surprise, not so bad at Tai Chi at all!

Definitely worth your time and money, by all means book with them!


3 days and 2 nights in heaven!
February 15, 2020

We went to Halong Bay with Peony Cruise and we couldn't be happier about it! The bay is really worth all the hype, even though it does get a little crowded. Still, it's one of those places you have to see in your life, no doubt about it.

As for the ship, Peony is just wonderful! It looks really luxurious, the food is amazing and the staff treat you with a lot of kindness. Great experience for everyone!


Just wonderful!
February 04, 2020

If you're looking for a professional cruising company, these guys certainly deliver! Everything they do during your stay with them is carefully arranged so that you can have a wonderful time (we really appreciated this after so many poor-quality experiences when travelling around Asia). Peony Cruise is just awesome, we all had a great, great time with them. Oh, and don't miss out on all the off-board activities with them, they were very good too!


A fantastic way to see THE BAY
January 31, 2020

Hey Peony Cruise, thanks so much for one of the highlights of our Vietnam trip! We will certainly always remember this as a truly wonderful cruise. We tried all the activities available for us, both on-board and off-board, and they were all great and professionally organized. Thanks for everything and a big recommendation from a crazy traveller couple from Poland!


A blissful cruise in Ha Long
January 24, 2020

Just a few words to say that my cruise with Peony exceeded my expectations - by some distance! I found the whole experience thoroughly relaxing and can recommend it to anyone.

My only regret is that I hadn't booked the 3-day option. Will have to go back one day, I guess!


Spectacular
January 18, 2020

A well-organized cruising experience, with all the boxes ticked to the perfection. We were really pleased how everything about Peony Cruise is so hassle-free and enjoyable, so your role out there is basically just to sip that drink and watch that amazing sunset, from your own balcony of course. Would go with the same company if I could go there again.


Perfect bonding trip for our family
December 21, 2019

“The cruise was amazing, excellent accommodation and gorgeous surroundings. The staff was very helpful and the food was a treat in itself! Our family had a wonderful time thanks to the well thought out itinerary. Will highly recommend Peony Cruise. We just wished we had spent two nights instead of just one.”


Well worth our hard-earned money
December 01, 2019

“Everything was amazing. Our guides spoke fluent English and had a good sense of humor. The rest of the staff were very accommodating and arranged everything we need without any issue. It was very reassuring because they always had smiles on their faces. We did lots of activities, we had delicious food, and we had great time exchanging pleasantries with the other guests. The boat was incredibly clean and the views from our massive windows were jaw-dropping!”


Hope to be back soon!
December 01, 2019

“Kudos to the staff for always making sure all our needs were attended to. They were very friendly and spoke good English. The entire ship, from the bow to the stern, was very clean. The food was really good, especially the Vietnamese dishes. And of course, the cabin was awesome, gave us the best views of Halong Bay, even while taking a bath!"
