What a fantastic cruise & great experience

We just returned from our cruise and it was amazing! We were able to see Halong bay and some other bays it was so beautiful. The balcony was a great addition and we loved spending time out there. It was actually bigger than we expected.

Excellent experience with Stellar of The Seas

I'm a huge fan of cruises and was excited to try out Stellar of the Seas for their Lan Ha Bay route. It didn't disappoint! The route seemed quieter than in Halong and there are so many opportunities for fun offboard activities like kayaking and snorkeling. Our cabin was comfortable and the staff were amazing. I even learned some Vietnamese while learning to cook traditional food. I would highly recommend this cruise.

The Stellar cruise was an amazing experience! The caves were so fun to explore. We also loved fishing off the boat at night. The kids were well looked after by the staff while we enjoyed the wine list. Overall, it was a fantastic trip.

Families should try this!

We had an incredible time on our cruise! Lan Ha Bay was breathtaking and the pool on the top deck was really nice and fresh with the sea breeze and sunny weather. The water in the bay was really clean and the staff gave me a life jacket so I could swim with the rest of my family. Thanks to Sam and the other staff for looking after us and the kids!

Amazing experience

I highly recommend the Stellar of the Seas cruise. It was an easy transfer from Hanoi and checking in was quick and easy needed that with a family of 4. The cruise itself was really clean. I think the chefs knew what they were doing too. My sons were a little less picky and even tried the squid we caught!

good trip

My first time in Vietnam. Got off the plane in Hanoi and took the transfer service. Checkin was easy. On the boat, the rooms were pretty good. I was expecting something smaller for a boat! The lounge bar was a great place to relax and have a drink after a long day of sightseeing.

Great cruise and great staff

I took the Stellar of the seas cruise and it was an amazing experience! The spa was really great and I had a full oil massage with my daughter. We were a big group and the staff handled our requests very well. Thanks to Ruby and Minh for helping my family have the best time! Ruby, I swear I'll beat you at cards next time!

Ultra friendly with good attention to customers! Had a good time meeting some of our guides and it was nice to hear a lot of history about the place. The front deck was designed well for a relaxing evening.

AMAZING

What an experience. We stayed on the boat for one night but wished we had stayed for the two nights. The whole experience from start to finish was superb. The cabins were a very good standard and a good size more than we expected with nice balcony.The food and the staff were of high quality. In the evening, we were enjoying BBQ by the pool with relaxation. We were very sorry to leave the cruise.

Worth every dollar!

Comforts of a top hotel on water. Highlight was the amazing fresh tasty food and views. Service outstanding and you felt safe as you noticed there was safety equipment everywhere, which not sure if smaller cheaper operators have that. Furthermore, you will be thrilled out to see on board the mini golf courses, beautiful swimming pool and luxury bar... Extremely nice and convenient.

Beautiful and well organized

Two-day-one-night cruise on Ha Long bay. Busy, but not stressful schedule. Cabins are fine (AC, minibar, safe) and own balcony's great. Staff is attentive and very nice and the food's amazing. Recommended.

Great way to relax

Although there are many boats in the bay, we didn't feel at all crowded and, in fact, it was lovely at night to see the twinkling of the other boats moored up. We did all the usual excursions, including the visit to the tunnel where we were rowed round by a local lady. We found this fascinating and were full of questions to ask about the way of life of these people during the information session on the boat in the evening. We had booked a Junior Suite Cabin with a balcony. we enjoyed sitting on the balcony but found the room a bit shabby with a torn curtain. The food was OK and a bit of a problem for me as I don't like sea food. However, they very kindly brought me alternative dishes at all the meals. All in all all, despite the cloudy weather, it was a very relaxing experience which we wouldn't have missed.

Lovely way to experience Halong Bay

We did the 1 night cruise which we felt was just right. The cruise is lovely. The crew were attentive and the food was of a good standard. We found the cabin more comfortable to sit in than sleep in, and from there and the public areas we had great views of Halong Bay. Kayaking through a cave was also a great experience. After the chaos of Hanoi, it was a lovely way to chill-out.

Really good time on board

The boat trip was excellent. The staff could not do enough for us and we felt right at home. The rooms were lovely, and we had our own little balcony, which was very nice. The food was good, the setting was amazing but the trips were a little disappointing. No their fault, just with more tourists, the effects are seen. However still had an amazing time and will never forget it.

Had a great time, definitely recommend 2 nights!

We enjoyed our 2 nights cruise on the Stellar of the Seas boat. It was clean, the room with private balcony was great. The bathroom and shower were very impressive! We could not fault the food, the staff were lovely & the day trips were well organized & a lot of fun. Everyone on our boat had a wonderful time & of course, Halong Bay itself is stunning! Very relaxing couple of nights on the boat. We recommend the 2 nights cruise. With the expressway, It's a 2 hour drive from Hanoi to Halong city where you board the boat, so staying 2 nights makes it more worthwhile.
