We organised the transfer through the company, the minibus picked us up on time from the old quarter and we arrived at the port within 2 hours.

There was a bit of a wait to get onto the cruise as there was a lot of traffic however we were on the bay by 12pm.
Once on the boat we were welcomed by all the staff, checked into our rooms then we had lunch.
Staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the catered to your food requirements.
The food was excellent, you defiantly won’t leave feeling hungry.
After lunch we had a bit of free time before having the choice to go off to some caves on bamboo boats. We then headed back to the boat for Happy hour drinks and a cooking demonstration.
Dinner was excellent and we had amazing service from Tony, Tim and Sunny 🙂

On the 2nd day we went kayaking in the morning I would definitely recommend doing this activity. It was my birthday on the 2nd day and when having brunch the staff brought out a birthday cake for me, this was a lovely little touch.

I would recommend this cruise to everyone, we had a great time and I would definitely return 🙂

This cruise was the highlight of our trip. The staff onboard is so kind and attentive and the excursions (kayaking, swimming, and a boat through a tunnel in Halong Bay) were exceptional. The room was BEAUTIFUL and the entire ship was well-maintained and clean. The transportation service was exceptional as well, large comfortable shuttle vans with AC and Wifi. Happy Hour included a cooking demonstration and 2-for-1 drinks (the cocktails themselves were about $5 USD each, so not expensive regardless).

We did the 2 day 1 night trip but wish we had stayed for 2 nights had our travel plans allowed. Would definitely recommend this trip, it is no doubt one of the best cruise services in Halong Bay.

I will say that the cruise we took was mostly couples (age range 20s-50s) with no children or young single people, but that could have been just our cruise itself and all the activities would be child-friendly.

Our hotel Hanoi La Selva arranged this overnight cruise for us on Orchid Cruises @ Lanha Bay. We were treated to absolute luxury and great service!

From the point we were welcomed on board Mr Thomas’s “house”, to the point where Mr Thomas personally escorted us to our van which would take us back to Hanoi – service was first class!

Our rooms were spacious and had a balcony. They were on the lower deck. Air conditioned, King sized beds, rain shower, slipper tub, complementary fruit, tea coffee and water. The only thing missing I would say was bath bombs or bath salts. Bring your own salts if you plan to use the tub :).

Food was fantastic! Dinner is a sit down type set menu – but breakfast and lunch more buffet style. Kudos to the chef for providing us with variety. We had one person in our group who didn’t eat meat and they catered special vege options only for her! Thank you!

Lanha Bay is definitely worth the visit. Sea green warm water and stunning scenery. Less crowded than Halong Bay. We were treated to kayaking and swimming which we enjoyed. And stargazing on top deck at night is a definite treat if you want an unobstructed view of the heavens. We also loved the sunrise although we had to be up at 5am to catch it. The early morning light over the Karsts is stunning.

We were not too impressed with the cocktails but juice options and coffee were very good.

Overall we’d definitely do this again! A big shout out to Mr Thomas, Mr Tee and the entire team on Orchid Cruises to Lanha Bay for a fabulous time.

Did a Hai Long Day Cruise with Orchid Cruises and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were confused by the many tour options and operators available but decided on Orchid Cruises eventually as it was highly recommended by our hotel. What a wonderful decision that turned out to be.
The transport provided by them was very comfortable and as they take a different route via the new expressway to the pier, our ride was only 2 hrs instead of the usual 3 to 4 hrs. Our guide Mr Le Bac was very humorous and passionate about what he does and fed us constantly with information about the history and facts of the various sites we passed through or visited. He was very particular about safety and ensured that all safety procedures were adhered to. The boat itself was impressive. New, comfortable and well kept. Food was plentiful and delicious.
Halong Bay is truly beautiful and should not be missed.
All in all a wonderful experience which everyone should not miss.

Great food, great staff, amazing trips
We absolutely loved our time on Orchid Cruise Boat 3. Miss Lara was our host and Andy was our waiter, Fi took us on tours and their customer service was spectacular. My favourite part of the trip was cycling around Cat Ba Island national park visiting the village and kayaking to the little beaches. I really can’t fault the tour… if anything there was probably too much food, but it was all delicious. Thanks for making us feel so welcome, we were so sad to leave.
