Me and My family almost loved cruising in Halong Bay, the operator manager did his job well by organizing us an excellent trip for one night on boat. That was basically a normal itinerary but we had lots of funs, our cabin was family suite(1 doubel bed and 1 single bed), the cabin was big but not really large, the window was extend, so we could see lots of things, beautiful landscapes. They picked up at hotel and came back hotel again for the second day. That was lovely trip.

We used this company last week and they were very efficient and helpful. The boat was comfortable and the food was good and there was plenty of it. The boats look a little tatty on the outside - apparently the government made them paint them all white (!) and the paint is all peeling off now but inside they are a pleasant surprise.

They do keep you on a tight schedule so not much time for relaxing and just watching the beautiful scenery drift past!

We picked a boat that slept 20 maximum but there were only 12 of us on it which suited us as we did not want the "party" style karaoke type of boat. They seem to have plenty of capacity so as it is out of season right now i would advise watching the weather forecasts then picking your date - we were lucky and had dry and pleasant weather but the previous 2 days had ben cold and rainy so it would be a real shame to go on this trip and miss out on the scenery . Also if traveling to Hanoi specially make sure you spare a day or two to explore Hanoi as we didn have enough time there.

My son, his girlfriend and I experienced a wonderful 3 day/2 night cruise on the Galaxy just a week or so ago. It was one of the more moderately priced tours, but everything about it made it rank high in out esteem: the boat was impeccably clean and well-run, the staterooms small but elegant in their own way, the food abundant and tasty, and the staff helpful and friendly ( we felt truly lucky to hang out with our guide, Viet, who was kind, well-informed and genuinely enjoyed our enjoyment of his beautiful country. Our fellow boatmates, quite diverse in age and nationality were also a delight) The bay is beyond beautiful: our itinerary allowed for a quiet, chill day on the sea, in a cave, and on a beach following a more rushed but full first day. It was ideal for us. We highly recommend this company. Opt for 2 nights if you can.Everyone that did not in our group wished they had

Halong Bay is fabulously beautiful and the Galaxy Cruise is a great way to experience it. Included in the price is pick up at your hotel in Hanoi in a comfortable van, excellent meals on board, a very nice stateroom, a cave tour, kayaking, swimming, karaoke, and lots of photo ops. If you stay two nights, you get different excursions the second day. All-in-all, a great deal and probably one of the highlights of your Southeast Asian trip.
