The bay had so much to look after, and savour the ambience that I felt had it not been for the guide provided by Brilliant Halong Cruises, my trip would have been half as exciting. It was simply incredible to visit the islands along the bay. Again, the company also takes great pleasure in providing consultancy services. They helped me to choose the most affordable and convenient cruise option depending upon my availability, which I definitely admire. The rooms were made to exude convenience and comfort. The foods were exemplary. I should give a vote of thanks to the officials who heeded my request to offer me a particular course of menu. If someone has decided to make a trip to Halong

I highly recommend an overnight in Halong, 2 nights if you have the time. It takes 3.5 hours from Hanoi to Halong, so on a day tour, you actually spend more time traveling to and from, rather than at Halong Bay itself. We enjoyed our activities with Opera Cruise: visiting a big, awesome cave; swimming; kayaking; and just hanging out at the roof deck. They also had a demo on how to make spring rolls. The next morning, we woke up early to take a basic tai-chi class.

I was a bit aprehensive to book a class opera cruise due to some of the negative reviews, especially around the food (Im a foodie). First of all, the great thing was that the cruise was full of young people (25-35) and considering we were going to spend two days together, that was a plus. The rooms were clean and the food was great (Ive never seen so much quantity!). Really nice vietnamese food. The activities were fun - floating village, kayaking, islands, caves...and the staff were really helpful - especially our guide - Ton - who was also a very fun character! So all in all very recommended. We booked through Brilliant Cruises.com and they were excellent. We did it all via their live chat. Grwat service.

Reserved our trip by Brilliant Halong Cruises and spent almost three days in Halong Bay & Bai Tu Long Bay was unforgettable. We stayed at A Class Oprera Cruise, Suite cabin owned a great balcony and deck ,panoramic window,too. They offered champagnes, fresh fruits daily in our room. All meals included in rate with fantastic seafood and Vietnamese Cuisine.We had great chance to learn how to cook Vietnamese cuisine by cooking demonstration on boat. The full day kayak opt on second day brought us great experience to discover the Bay, floating village. Great and would definitely recommend!

I booked a trip three day two night with my wife on Aclass Opera Cruise that we booked by Brilliant Halong Cruises It was really nice trip. After enjoying a good lunch, We have a great time to visit floading village. It was lucky for us to "see and make friend" with the Sun. It was a sunny day. I really enjoy Kayaking time with my wife. We love Vietnam food on this boat so we eat alot. Well, We can open a retaurant with N-E-M ( spring rolls) what we learn from the chef of the cruise. The crews were very friendly. Nice guide is Kenny. He helped me alot when we did kayak in night- cave and day - cave. May be We will be back Ha Long bay next time on 15 th year of wedding ceremony ^-^

That was so a beautiful trip in the early of November. Just wanna bring her some surprise and i made it successfully. The cruise team was excellent, our cabin owned an private balcony, they offered some champagne, red wine, candles for complimentary that made me and my girlfriend more amazing. A wine party on Sundeck of Cruise was open at late afternoon was a highlight where people could see the romantic sunset together while they were drinking and talking. The most amazing thing we liked here is cooking class by chef of the next day in the morning, we loved the Bun Cha and Spring roll, that was a excellent trip in Halong Bay by aclass Opera cruise. we would like to recommend it!!!

We booked for trips 2 days in Halong bay but at that night we came back hotel quite late, as the result get up late for the next day of cruise but the guide and manager helped us very much by waiting for us, and we finally got on the bus around 9am, it was quite late but everybody on the bus were not confused.The boat trip was not bad and it even would be better by our expectation, the cabin with good facilities, cabin with window for reaching out the ocean outside. Immaculate landscapes in Halong Bay, could not how to express the beautiful of the Bay. The boat trip on sunny day was much better than storms coming as we had seen it before on the internet.Other people got louder and louder in swimming and kayaking, but the trip was quite amazing for us and Halong Bay is must see place.

Halong bay is amazing, really deserves and worth a visit! The group I met there was super cool and we had a lot of fun together! Visiting the cave was awesome! I was very surprise and how beautiful it is! The food is good and the rooms as well... and the staff was unbelievably helpful, because I lost my passport some where, or in the bus or in the restaurant in the middle of the way, realized when I got back at my Hotel, so called them, they CAME to my hotel just to talk in person without me asking, just came by surprise, just to tell me everything they would do next day to try to find it... next day morning they were here 10am with my passport in hands!! That was SOOO nice of them to be amazingly helpful with me.

That was an amazing trip on A class Cruise,After making our booking via Briliant Halong Bay, when i emailed them asking for which is A Class Cruise or A class Opera Cruise, the manager did not hesitated to email us to clarify each name of these both cruise.He told us both A Class Cruise and A Class Opera Cruise are the same owner but both of them are already in use for top services. We enjoyed Halong A Class Cruise. They hotpick us up at hotel approximately 8am for Halong Bay, many fantastic activities organized by cruise team. Cruise A Class sailed many place in Halong Bay, so we get lots of things to do, totally that was nice trip
