I went on Era Cruise for a Halong Bay tour last week for my birthday. It was truly an unforgettable sight and it has left me greatly missing Vietnam. I had the fortune to see a small chunk of the country, and Halong Bay was by far my favourite sight. What made the experience even better were the lovely crew on deck. Not only are they welcoming and so friendly to each visitor, their attention to your needs amazed me. My mom dropped her chopstick only to have another replaced for her within literal seconds. They definitely do not neglect any passengers.

One very notable crew member was Jenny. She was so professional, welcoming, and friendly to both my mom and I. She was a delight to have on the ship and a new friend for my mom. Thank you Jenny, we miss you!

We spent 3 days 2 nights on this lovely cruise! We were traveling with our 23 year old daughter and each had a large balcony suite with amazing views. The food was delicious and the staff and chef was very accommodating to our needs! Specially Jenny the cruise director, she always found time to personally make sure we were happy and enjoying every detail! All the employees were extremely polite and attentive! Definitely this cruise was the highlight of our 2 week visit to both Vietnam and Thailand!

I took the two night/three day Halong Bay cruise in April 2018 and was really pleasantly surprised. I am not much for package tours but this was really a first class, pleasant way to cruise the bay. We looked around at the other options and decided to splurge on the high end options. It was a good choice! The stateroom was beautiful, large and comfy…quite new and the service was outstanding. Miss Jenny the manager made sure that everything was perfect for us. All the staff was lovely, polite, accommodating and always smiling! Kudos to Era on their professionalism. I have been doing cooking classes all over Vietnam on this trip and the Era cruise class was the second best of the five I’ve taken. Also, the excrursions from the cruise were pretty fun. Finally..the food and drink was decadent. Lots of delicious options. We figured that Halong Bay was a one in a lifetime experience and we are glad we did it with the Era crew. Highly recommended.

I booked this tour directly through Judy, I did the two night three day cruise and I must say there are no regrets. Her customer service is impeccable. She went over and beyond her duty, even after the cruise was paid for.
The cruise ship is a little expensive compared to some of the others, however the boat is luxury, the activities were great and the food was fantastic. Staff were friendly and very helpful.
This cruise was definitely a highlight of my stay in Vietnam.
To Judy what can I say, thank you so much for going over and beyond your duties to make me feel welcome and comfortable both on your cruise and in Vietnam. Your hospitality and assistance started before I left Australia and continued right through.
