Greeted by a group of enthusiastic Athena staff as we boarded the cruise. Their professionalism and polite attitude made my stay absolutely pleasant and enjoyable. The facilities and amenities stood out the most for me, especially the bathroom with a huge bathtub. The buffet in the restaurant was delicious with a huge variety. The setting of the restaurant was almost as if I was in a fine-dining restaurant. Special shout out to the cruise manager, Quang, for his enthusiasm and friendliness. He made the effort to mingle with everyone and asked for their feedback. It was my first time to Halong Bay and definitely not my last. Totally enjoyed every moment of the tour. Thank you!

Excellent cruise with nice food, facilities are good. For buffet lunch, those seafood salad/platter was no enough for all the guest in the cruise, the refill was less and every guest just grab and craving for that. For dinner, food serve per pax per portion, taste very good.

Very pleased we picked Athena Cruise for our Halong Bay experience. We used their Hanoi pickup service which was also well worth the money.
Excellent food and plenty of it, good service and very good cabins. Staff were amazing,
All activities are well organized and spaced apart for comfort.
Ours was a 1 night two day cruise and the second day I feel they head back to port too early. We ended up cruising around the port harbor for over an hour. Would have preferred to stay anchored in Halong Bay longer and enjoy the view there. But I did notice that all the cruise boats did the same.



Couple Traveller

Highly recommended! I was booking from Darian Culbert, all arrangements was perfects including the Tam Coc Tour, pick-up and drop off service. Athena Cruise was worth from what we paid. Food delicious, cabin crews are polite and professional especially the Cruise Manager. Bed very comfortable and room very clean. You will having a mind relax along the tour. A surprise souvenir from Chinh(Athena Cruise) were send to us. Thanks for your gift, Chinh. We love it so much!

When deciding on choices of cruises in Halong Bay, we tend to put too much emphasis on reviews of the amenities, decor and service level of the cruise ships but ignore the varying qualities of the shuttle transport provided.

Having browsed through the various options classified as luxury cruise, I reckon that there are very little differentiating them in terms of service and quality of cabins.

The reason I have decided on Athens cruise because it is class above the others in terms of the choice of return limousine coach from Hanoi. The 15 seats limousine coach is big and spacious with armrested leather seat, WiFi and 2x USB charging ports. The 7 hours return trip was an indulgence rather than an endurance.

The ship is new with tasteful art deco finishing.. Service is excellent especially with the cruise manager Mr Ha’s wicked sense of humour.. Real warm welcome instead of the usual plastic smile on plastic face.

It was definitely a trip to cherish .
