We were taken care of from hotel pick-up in hanoi to drop off, we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive and made sure our dietary requirements were met. Jessi the tour guide was great. Lots of activities. Kayaking, swimming, bike ride, tour of a local village, etc. We stayed two nights, and are glad we did as one night might not have been enough to soak it all in. Super relaxing getaway. Really nice room and great food.

We had a 2 night 3 day experience and loved every moment (husband and I travelling with another couple of good friends). The staff are so friendly and professional – nothing was too much trouble, the food was amazing (salivating just thinking about it!), the cabin large, clean and comfortable. Loved the gentle cruising around the bay and happy hour! The bay itself is spectacular, the little exploration stops for kayaking and swimming, Cat Ba Island etc. the only complaint – the cruise wasn’t long enough! 5 stars for a 5 star cruise, highly recommend Azalea Cruises.

It was luxury from the Hanoi hotel pickup in the limo seated van to our first look at the boat and in particular our 2nd deck cabin.
The food was beautiful and consisted of buffet breakfasts and lunch each day and in the evening were greeted to a 5 course set menu.
All tastes were well catered for.
The staff were fantastic and particularly helpful and attended to any request with a smile and a great attitude. They get to know your personal likes n dislikes.
I sweat lots with the humidity so I was greeted each night with a seat near the aircon and an ice cold face towel.
A couple of minor knocks would be the wifi is pretty much non existent and the minibars don’t get cold at all.

Enjoyed it !!!

Perfect organization, from the moment of pick-up at the hotel to our return the following day. Transfer to the harbor by comfortable minivan, and to the ship with tender. We never had to worry about our luggage, everything was handled in the best way. The cabin was spacious, the bathroom was well furnished with shower and bathtub. We loved the food on board. Absolutely recommended!

From being picked up at our hotel to arrival at the dock, everything went smoothly. The actual check-in took time, which would not normally matter apart from the fact that it was so hot. We were guided to the vessel that took us to the ship. We did not have to worry at all about our luggage as everything was taken care of. On arrival we went to our allocated cabin. This was spacious, well furnished, fabulous view, bathroom with shower and jacuzzi bath tub.
The food throughout the trip was very good… the first night Asian food and the second night more Western. (The lamb was exceptional)
The day trip to the village was well organised and really interesting to see life of the island people.
Throughout the trip the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and made the trip even more enjoyable.
If I had one criticism it would be that the instructions with regard to activities, departure, meal times were sometimes not clear, and different members of staff gave different instructions. This was not a major problem, but sometimes was frustrating
Overall summary is that it was an excellent 2 nights in a fabulous location. Thanks
