Amazing

When visit Vietnam, you should put Halong Bay Cruise tour as number one. 3 hours drive from Hanoi or 170km. Warm welcome at the port and go by small boats to the cruise. Started our itinerary with a marvellous lunch, followed by visiting a surprising cave and then Ti Top island with good time for swimming. Happy hour, cooking demonstration and then enjoy a nice dinner. Overnight in cruise and second morning started with Taichi lesson, light breakfast, visit floating village and back for a nice brunch. A 2 days 1 night full program with wonderful staff and captain. Enjoyed every single minute. The only problem is Wi-Fi is very very weak.

Best so far!

We have just finished a 3day/2night cruise with Syrena and it was unforgettable! 
If you are looking to cruise Halong Bay you must pick this cruise. 
Syrena has everything you want for your trip. It is organised, clean, has the perfect mix of activity and chill andthe staff are absolutely amazing-worth their weight in gold.
The boat is in very good condition, probably the nicest boat we saw on the whole trip. The cabins are better than some hotels we have stayed in. Worth to pay alittle extra for a balcony room. 
The activities range from caving, kayaking, swimming, bamboo boating, pearl farms oh and the infamous squid fishing (I don’t think anyone ever catches anything tho!). In the evening there is plenty on board to keep you entertained and the morning starts with thai chi! 
You will not go hungry whilst on board, plenty of faultless tasty food to keep you happy! The drinks are alittle pricey though.
Mr Big (cruise manager) and his team especially Miss Linh and Mini Minh are exceptional. They will go out of their way to ensure you have a great time even find the football results whilst in the middle of no where! 
I was sad to leave and would highly recommend to anyone. Enjoy!

Stunning scenery

Well worth the 3-4 hours drive from Hanoi to join the boat. Crew friendly & efficient & food plentiful. Cabin has all you need & is very clean with en-suite shower room. Deluxe cabins have small balcony with table & chairs. Top deck is a great place to relax & watch the world go by & has a 360degree view. Cooking demo before dinner is very informative & hilarious when you try it yourselves. Excursion to Surprising Cave & the beach for swimming are worth doing as is the visit to a floating island. Only 17cabins on board Syrena 2 which means it isn’t too crowded or noisy like some of the other many ships offering similar trips. Return transfer can be arranged with cruise & is well worth it. We had 2 different drivers & both were very nice , helpful & extremely competent at he drive.

Glad I went on this cruise.

Very friendly staff. Good spread for all meals. I love that they have a mix of western and local cuisines at breakfast and lunch. Dinner was a 13-course. The food was generally tasty. 
Program was nicely spread out – visit to the Surprising Cave, floating village, pearl farm, optional kayaking etc. And I had ample time to just hang out at the deck, with a book and a drink, which is priceless. Sunset was lovely and so glad I had the room with balcony. Room was clean, including the toilet

Everything was great

We booked two nights on this Halong bay tour boat. It was great. They picked us up at our hotel in old town, Hanoi and drove us to Halong Bay. We had an English speaking guide, he met us at the dock and he was very attentive and informative. We boarded the boat and were assigned our room, headed out into the bay, had a great buffet lunch on the way. The bay is spectacular, very beautiful. We anchored and spent the afternoon, being rowed around a fishing village, visiting an oyster farm, pearl farm, then to a beach, then back to the boat for happy hour and another wonderful meal. The rooms are very clean, fairly large for a boat, with nice ensuite full bathrooms. Beds are very comfortable, large windows too. The decks are well kept with lots of furniture. The staff was very helpful and friendly. On the second day we went to the Surprise caves, what an amazing place, easy to understand why unesco has named these one of the wonders of the world. 
The entire trip was well worth doing, we would highly recommend this company, they are also very attentive to safety, ensuring everyone wears life jackets when on the smaller boat and going over all the safety rules. Food was very good as well.

This cruise is a must do! I will come again for a longer cruise. The food is absolutely amazing, with different menus/buffets for every meal. The tours are interesting and the views are absolutely stunning. Mr big (Tien) makes this trip, his English is excellent with a great sense of humour and a seemingly endless supply of legends and information on all that you see.

Good experience on a beautiful location!

My two children (ages 8 and 9) and I took a couple of days out of our trip to Hanoi to do an overnight cruise on Halong Bay. It was one of the best experiences! The ship is beautiful – not too big so it feels very private but big enough to have the conveniences you need. Our room was beautiful and we were on the second floor so we had a nice balcony to sit on and enjoy views of the bay. The staff was very nice and accommodating, the food was excellent and we enjoyed the cooking demonstration one night where we got to learn how to make spring rolls. The little trips off of the boat were enjoyable too – we went through a cave, stopped on an island where the kids got to swim and play on the beach, rowed through a fishing village and stopped at a pearl farm. Overall I’d highly recommend this trip to anyone!

We took a night in the Syrena to view the halong bay. The ship is very convenient, not too big but it is still private, the room was beautiful with a lovely bathroom. Food serves was super delicious. Service was very pleasant and did its utmost, all they promised was delivered 100% and more. Highly recommended.

Enjoyable trip

My tour operator had booked me on the Syrena for a two-day one-night Halong Bay cruise. I thoroughly enjoyed being on the boat. With just twenty odd guests on board, it was not crowded at all, when I compared it to some of our neighbours in the bay. The pick up from my Hotel in Hanoi was dot on time, and it was a very comfortable three and half hours on the road. Once on board, the safety briefing was thorough, cabins were tidy, and lunch was great. Food was a high point of this cruise. Plus the staff were ever smiling, and ever helpful. 
Highly recommended !

Great service and accommodation.

The crew were very welcoming and accommodating; and the rooms were clean and comfortable. 
The crew – particularly the cruise manager, Ngan – went to great lengths to make sure all our needs were taken care off. The ambience was great, perfect for a couple looking for a romantic getaway. My only complaint is that the the food was not consistent. While the lunch and farewell lunch was great, dinner was average at best. 
Also, the ship could do with some touch up paint as parts of it showed signs of rust. Other than that, I could not have asked for a better experience.

Our cruise on Halong Bay was absolutely wonderful. Mr Big and his staff on board the Syrena Cruise were all so friendly and it was a fantastic two days. The meals were lovely and the rooms extremely comfortable. Happy hour and the cooking class on the top deck was very enjoyable. The visit to Surprise Cave and Titop Island was great. Just being in Halong Bay is an experience you will never forget.

You will not be disappointed when you book with Syrena.
We were picked up promptly from our hotel and took to the coach. The drive was quite long but there are stops and Halong bay is well worth it! Firstly the staff, were absolutely incredible! They were approachable, friendly and knowledgable and really engaged with the passengers. Mr. Big (Dai) the tour manager was magnificent ! The boat, we had the deluxe double with balcony. Room was clean and comfortable and the view was stunning! The first day was a little misty and foggy but still beautiful! Next, the food.. Wow ! We were fed like kings and queens! There was so much food! And not only was there large quantities but the quality was great!!! I only wish we stayed longer than 1night! Look no further!!!

Great experience with friendly and attentive staff

We had a great experience on the Syrena. The staff were fantastic with Linh being super supportive and always there for us. While giving Linh a special mention, all the staff were very friendly. 
The boat was very clean and you could see that staff worked hard to keep it that way. All activities were run on time as the staff kept to a tight schedule. 
The food was plentiful and ok and we could not complain considering having to prepare everything on the boat. 
We loved Halong Bay and we would recommend visiting it at least once in your life.

A wonderful cruise

Going to Vietnam and going to Halong Bay is unthinkable. I think one of the best moments of our vacation was the time we spent on the Syrena ship. The cabins are large as I expected. The beds were comfortable. The balcony was delightful. The shower section is also large for a ship’s cabin. The food was delicious. 2 days and 1 night we went on a cruise on our ship, we climbed mountains, fed monkeys, sunbathing on the beach and a hundred. We made Tai Chi on the deck in the morning. The scenery is awesome … fascinating. Syrena is a clean, fairly new, well-maintained ship. The staff are also helpful and friendly. I’d rather stay in Syrena for a few days. One night came to us not enough.

“A” mark

It was a small but pretty cruise in Halong Bay.
Truly fantastic and to remember for a lifetime. Very helpful staffs. Traditional buffet lunches and dinners. Excellent breakfasts.
Weak Wifi on board (although the on-board staff provided me with an access password that did not work everytime).
Excursions on well-organized itself, the only flaw is the strong smell of naphtha.

At the first glance the boat looked not very beautiful (wooden boat) then once aboard everything changed. Staff very kind, the cabin with balcony beautiful and well kept, very good food to start buffet prepared just started browsing. The tender service used for the various visits was perfect.

Small cruise, well-organized, not dispersive whereas about twenty guests on board. Good Vietnamese and international food, very abundant (we risk giving in to temptations). Vietnamese cooking class to learn how to make trendy Vietnamese spring rolls of the North.
Visit the cave was included in the tour. Wonderful phenomenon sight in this fascinating bay.

Highlight in Halong Bay

We decided to go with Syrena Cruises for 2 days and 1 night which goes to Bai Tu Long. We got picked up in time and reached to Halong bay after almost 4 hours bus, bottle of waters was supplied. The Syrena Cruises was fantastic, we has been welcomed and our cabin which located at upper floor with private balcony. Kayaking on the Bay was amazing us by the beauty of Nature. Food delicious, staff friendly. I definitely recommend Syrena cruises for everyone planning for Halong Bay.

Great tour on the sea

Were on a 2-day tour with overnight on the Syrena. Had a pick up at the hotel in Hanoi agreed which worked perfectly. At the pier we were greeted by sharing the crew with warm tea before it went on the ship. The rooms are very nice. Newly renovated with great bathroom. All cabins are exterior and with a small private balcony. You can lie comfortably in bed and let yourself drift through the rocks of Halong Bay. Only windows and doors were a bit leaky. What can be a bit uncomfortable in cold weather. But it is not a big problem. The restaurant offers a very nice atmosphere. Unfortunately we could not use the sundeck due to the weather. But looked very comfortable. Our tour guide Linh then explained the program for the day.
While the ship was driving through the bay we had our lunch in the restaurant. Delicious. Then we took a trip to a floating village, where the locals live on pearl farming among other things. Very interesting. After a short stay on the ship we went to Titop Island. A small island with a beautiful viewpoint. Back on board we learned how to make fresh spring rolls. In the evening we got a Mehrgängemenü which was excellent. The view from the cabin at night with the lights of the other ships is amazing. After breakfast the next morning we went to the Sung Sot cave. Very nice, but too artificial and many people. In fine weather, I would prefer the peace on the sundeck of the ship. Finally, we got a great lunch before we returned to Halong City. The return transport directly to the airport to Hanoi worked out great. All in all, I highly recommend the Syrena. In particular, the crew members are all very personable and helpful. Even before our trip inquiries were answered by mail quickly and competently. Would book the Syrena again.

The staff was friendly and open to all requests. The food was absolutely perfect as well as the excursions and the cabin.
It should be noted that from the second day only really nice, because all booked only the 1 day tour, we had the following trips privately for ourselves, such as kayaking, swimming, pearl farm and the floating village.

We stayed for one night on the Syrena (two-day tour). Everything worked out great, you are wonderfully taken care of by the crew. The food was delicious! Definitely choose a room with a balcony, then the cruise feels even better! Also the excursions, which one takes over with the Tender boat were beautiful. Not too short, but not too long, so you had enough time on the boat. Also in terms of security, we felt very well cared for. Only to be recommended!

We were warmly welcomed upon arrival at the habor. The crew took care of our (we were 4 plus 2 ladies from England) luggage carefully separated from a Asia group.
The cabins on the boat were a bit small for me, but nice with balcony 2 chairs and a table, a palm tree and a noteworthy luxurious bathroom!
The food was served as a buffet, was surprisingly good and authentic. The service friendly and good, but it took a long time to get new drinks.
On the other hand, I have to admit that all excursions to the islands and caves were perfectly organized. Our ship itself looked much nicer and was in better condition than boats from other companies. Surrounded by the breathtaking landmarks around us, this tour was definitely an absolute highlight and a must see! 2 days and one night on board was the perfect moment for this tour.

Exceptional place to travel!

The cruise was amazing. The cabins were generous for a ship. The courteous staffs made a lot of effort to the guests. Generous offer of drinks. The buffet also offered a selection for each guest.
I had a wonderful moment and willingly recommend to any one consider to be on board.

My perfect honeymoon

A 2 day/1 Night cruise along Halong bay was booked as part of our Honeymoon package and I have to say that our trip on Syrena was the highlight of the whole package.
The Staff was welcoming, helpful and always smiling and we were greeted with a special honeymoon treat. Food was great, and we enjoyed every moment of the cruise. The drinks were not expensive and there was even a happy hour 🙂
Special thanks to Mr. Dai our guide on board!

5 star experience

This cruise trip exceeded our expectations. The quality of the rooms, food, activities and the staff was first class. A 5 star experience. Personally, I would have liked to visit Halong Bay 30 years ago, when it was much quieter, but today it is still a fantastic experience. The cave system was a surprise to us – it’s huge. And the cave passage with the rowboat was so nice. Well done, Syrena Cruises and thank you for your excellent service.

Excellent trip & Sweet memories

The cruise was really nice and full of basic facilities. The lunch, dinner and breakfast was delicious. Moreover, all the staffs was very friendly and full of hospitality. Special thanks to Mr Big. 
The tours to Halong bay, Ti Top island and floating village was fabulous.
Overall, Syrena cruise should be experienced by everyone.

Highlight of our great trip to Vietnam

We enjoyed our cruise along Halong Bay aboard Syrene Cruises. The staff was great – nothing was a problem, the excursions on land were interesting, the rooms comfortable and clean and the food fantastic. Our only regret was that we did not book an extra night !! We also enjoyed meeting the other travelers and found some good friends. I would highly recommend this company.

Luxurious and very friendly crew

We stayed for one night and two days in Halong Bay. The bedroom is very luxurious, even better than some good hotel rooms. The boat manager Dai was a great guide and was able to give answers to all our questions. The food on the boat was delicious!

Delightful trip

We recently booked a one-night tour of Halong Bay with Syrena Cruises. It was delightful and well worth the pokey drive from and to Hanoi by luxury van. Our guide, Tuyen, was a brand-new father and in spite of his excitement about this great event in his life, he did his best to focus on us while leading a good and informative tour. He even led us through the spectacular Surprise Cave dressed in a suit. In addition to the stunning limestone cave we visited a leisure island where some climbed 435 steps for a stunning view of the bay, and the next morning we visited the floating village and a pearl farm. The scenery was spectacular. The junk we sailed on was clean and comfortable, the food was plenty and very well served. In the evening we saw a British comedic documentary about a motorcycle trip through Vietnam, and then jigged for squid off the back of the boat over a nightcap. The ship itself could use some attention (tattered flags, exterior woodwork needs repair) but nothing interfered with our enjoyment of this experience. Recommend at least one night in Halong Bay, the early morning views were magical.

Luxury cruise!

We took the 2D1N cruise through Ha Long Bay and had an excellent experience. The cruise was modern and the rooms were well equipped to an amazing standard – very comfy beds!! The staff were extremely warm and eager to please. The food was varied, plentiful and delicious.

Perfect

Halong was the place that we liked the most during our time in Vietnam. It is unique and well-earned the title of the natural wonders of the world: its beaches, its caves, the limestones & grottos……. And if you were on Syrena Cruises while enjoying the sight, it would be perfect.
Better being on the top floor that have a balcony with chairs (tiny but enough for a romantic and unforgettable night)
We did the cruise for 1 night and 2 days and perfect and 100% recommended !!!
By the way, when I was going in Honeymoon, they somehow managed to have petals and chocolates together a wedding bouquet with roses leaves, beautiful! I said everything unforgettable !!

Great experience!

The crew was courteous, helpful and friendly. The junk was clean and the food was good. The beds were comfortable and the shower water pressure was strong enough with hotel . The excursions well organized and fun. 
The view from the staterooms and the various decks and dining room were breathtaking, with a sweet little balcony and two chairs off of each room. Though, you don’t need to spend too much time there unless you like, as they keep you busy all day long with fun outings and onboard offerings.
However, I’m not certain if there is a more private way to see more of the bay for anything near this price. 
I recommend Syrena without hesitation.
