A lovely few Days

We have just returned from a three day long cruise in Halong Bay with Swan Cruise line. Everything lived up to expectations, they collected our group from our hotel in Hanoi and drove us to the quay. It’s a bit of a drag as the road is bad, but they appear to be working on improving that so hopefully it will make the journey easier. Once we arrived on the boat though it was all forgotten and we relaxed in the bar with a glass of wine. There is plenty to keep you occupied and enough time for just chilling out. The standards of accommodation, food and decor onboard are all extremely high. The crew deserve a special mention,lovely people, just as we found everywhere we went in Vietnam. One small criticism, the bar prices were quite high which when you have already paid for the cruise seems a bit mean. If you want a few drinks, I’d suggest putting a bottle in your case. But everything was really great and we all loved it.

We Loved Halong Bay

Together with my life long friend Sandra we booked on the Swan Cruise Boat to sail in Halong Bay in Vietnam. What a trip. We had two weeks travelling from South to North in Vietnam, calling in a various cities and resorts until we arrived in Hanoi. After one night in our hotel the staff from Swan collected us at out hotel. It is well organised, you can just take a small bag and leave your heady luggage in Hanoi. As we had three more days after the cruise this was ideal for us. The bus ride out to the bay took up the morning but we were soon excitedly boarding our fabulous cruise boat. It was really beautiful. Our room was amazing, in fact it was the best room we had on the whole trip. The food was also good. Staff on board are very friendly and helpful. It was over far too quickly and we were soon on our way back to Hanoi.

Very good food, friendly and helpful staff, nice ensuite room. The boat cruise in Bai Tu Long Bay area so it was not crowded and I can see beautiful limestone islets and amazing view of Ha Long. Thanks to Swan Cruises I had a very great time in Ha Long Bay. I also booked this cruise for many clients and they were all happy with the trip. I would recommend Swan Cruises to everyone!

Superb service

What was Impressed me the most by this company was human service. Firstly my best tour guide ever was Jenny, she was very nice, friendly, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and extremely attentive. She took us on kayaking to a natural beach, the scenery was unbelievable. I think Bai Tu Long bay was absolutely beautiful, and i didn’t see many other Cruises which was great. Secondly the Crew members were very pleasant and so helpful, they always be there to give me a hand. The Food was very delicious, fresh and plentiful. I definitely recommend Swan Cruises and Jenny. Great thanks to your team.

The cruise offered great views of Ha Long Bay, our tour guide Kien was very entertaining and provided us with an unforgettable experience through his stories and history lessons of Vietnam! The Tai Chi lesson guided by him was wonderful, and he constantly cared for us throughout the cruise. Would highly recommend this cruise to those who want to visit Ha Long Bay 🙂 Thank you Kien!

Excellent service and a comfortable cruise

We went on a 2D/1N tour to halong Bay. It was probably the best decision to go on this tour. Apart from the mesmerizing place that Halong is, the cruise was too good. My guide was so enthusiastic, she kept us busy all the time. The whole crew was very nice and involved us in all the activities. It’s a paradise for people who like sea food, too much variety and amazing preparations.

Great experience, awesome crew

Went on a cruise in Halong Bay with Swan Cruise as part of our organized tour of Vietnam. Great choice from the tour company, very nice room, large comfy bed, food was excellent. Actually they overfed us, as I am sure I gained a few pounds. Excellent drinks, and the selection of activities, such as kayak and cave tour was great, overall the schedule was filled with enough activities that you could still enjoy the boat and the view, which is what you go there for. The bus ride from Hanoi and back was good, only thing is am a big guy, so the little asian seats are a bit too narrow for me. 
Nam – our guide was excellent, very professional and good sense of humour. Highly recommended.

Wonderful trip. Far exceeded expectations.

From the moment our family (with 13 & 11yo kids) were picked up at our hotel in Hanoi until we were dropped off at the airport we were entertained, educated, pampered and above all fed. Our guide / host Mia was fantastic. Young, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and fun. The boat was great – traditional and very nice. . Beautiful clean en-suite cabins. Really nice. My daughter says ‘like a little hotel on water’. The food was great….and near endless. 6 dishes at lunch 10+ for dinner. The scenery, fantastic. We kayaked. We swam. This has been a great 36 hours. I believe there are 200 companies that run in total about 600 boats on Halong Bay. I’d be surprised if there is a better operator than Swan. Even better if your guide is Mia.

Must see yourself

Swan Cruises gave us a magnificent time – loved every minute and saw the limestone caves (spectacular)as well as swimming off the boat and kayaking. Fantastic tour guide in Tommy – outstanding in communication, his knowledge of the area and historical insights as well as his great sense of humour! He included everyone and made sure everyone was ok despite losing his voice in the later stages. How lucky are Swan Cruises to have such a wonderful young leader. It made the tour for all in our group.

Great cruise at Bai Tu Long Bay

This was a great trip! At arrival you immediately get a magnificient lunch and some time to recover from the bus drive to Halong city. The activities organised as part of the cruise are really great and well organised by a very capable crew. Our guide Tam was really friendly and preoccupied with everybody enjoying their stay.
The only downside is the fact we booked only one night, out of fear for seasickness. With hindsight we absolutely advice against this, the sleeping bay is very quiet and the ship is completely still during the night. The trip was so great we would have loved to stay one day more.

Great fun

I went to Vietnam with three mates, we got back a few weeks ago. It was a blast from start to finish. Saigon was great fun, Hoi An was a neat little place with good food but the best part was three days in Halong Bay. We booked with Swan Cruise Halong. The cabins were great, with large windows and our own balconies. It was a mixture of relaxing and doing activities. The kayaking was a great laugh. The scenery is amazing and the time flew by. In the evenings we just chilled up on deck playing cards and drinking. It was a great way to spend a few days.

Escape the full streets of Hanoi for a day. Linda fed us information on the four-hour journey and had a very good time all day long, whether as a photographer, cook or conversation partner. The food on the cruise was heavenly and even the sky showed its blue face and sunbeams that day. Off the beaten track we drove to the fishing village to glide through the village alone in bamboo boats. It was a dreamlike silence and I recommend everyone to enjoy it for a day.

So much of Natures Beauty on one trip

My wife and I are currently in Cambodia on the second leg of our three country holiday. We have just arrived here from Vietnam and the truly beautiful Halong Bay, courtesy of Swan Cruises Halong Bay. We couldn’t find fault with this amazing cruise ship. From the wonderful cabins and delicious food to the helpful staff and friendly tour guides. The Geography is a little confusing here, we went to Bai Tu Long Bay which is we were told part of the more famous Halong Bay. This part is quieter than the main bay and we enjoyed the peace and quiet. We have just had a quite stressful time in our lives and this was the perfect medicine. We sat in the early evening sipping cocktails,enjoying each others compeny and the serenity of the this most glorious part of the world. If you are thinking of travelling to Asia, check out Vietnam, but whatever you do don’t miss Halong Bay.

We walked for two days and one night. In my opinion is enough. The activities proposed were kayaking. Ah! Take the camera. I gave the mole of not taking and I regretted. Incredible scenery. The food is very filling and of great quality. The rooms are very neat, looks like hotel room. The other morning, the tour takes place in the cave and at noon returns to Hanoi.

Magnificent tours with sensational staff

The tour through Halong Bay is one of the must of world tourism. I recommend it for anyone who likes stunning places, quality local cuisine, good adventure with kayaking through Halong bay, and visits to the caves of the area. We did the 2 day trip and 1 night overnight in the boat. It is very good, but I would love to stay one more day in the area, which is simply stunning.Special attention to the staff at Swan Cruises: all excellent, caring, professional and helpful. 
Especially the guides Tam and Mee. Both were excellent, both in the care of the details, and with the joy, the spontaneity and the dedication so that we felt very at ease.
We chose Swan Cruises as it goes to less congested areas in the Halong area and the boat itself has fewer tourists. That is, it is a smaller group, which is better for the quality of service and more personalized, human service.

We chose this cruise based on some reviews and ratings from other travelers and the truth is we made the right decision. The cruise is very beautiful and it is worth even navigating between the entrails of the dragon. The guides and the onboard staff are helpfull and extremely friendly. A great detail and the fact that they are careful to offer bottles of water to the passengers. The rooms are comfortable, clean and very friendly. The various meals on board were all excellent.

We made a tour of 3 days and 2 nights. The experience was wonderful, spending three days on the boat allows you to delve further into the bay away from the movement of the other boats and kayaking practically alone and enjoying in silence the nature surrounded by large boulders and fishermen in the area. The staff is extremely friendly made us feel at home. The food on board is exquisite. The Tai Chi classes at dawn on deck is an unparalleled experience. We would certainly repeat it.

Pleasant cruise

We did a family cruise with one night. Everything is very well orchestrated. The proposed activities are interesting, the meals are good. The crew of the boat is adorable. Special mention to Jenny who is dynamic and in a good mood. She animates everything with professionalism. The only downside is that we found one of the rooms a little noisy (next to the kitchen and engine).

Best experience

Such a beautiful experience with friends. The food was amazing. The staff were nice and kind. The Cruise gave the total views of the beautiful Halong bay, putting natures finest on display! Best experience of mine!

Really Cool Ship

This was a very fun trip. The ship was really cool and the rooms small but really nice. The guides were nice people and very helpful. I enjoyed kayaking, first time for me. The scenery was amazing, Halong bay is such an unusual place. The kayaking was the best way to view it, we even went through a tunnel in one of the rocks to a hidden lagoon.There is loads to eat and it was all tasty. Time to leave Vietnam now but Iwill be back one day I hope.
