Cruise cancellation due to bad weather conditions

Cruising/sailing in Ha Long Bay is regulated by the Ha Long Bay Port Authority. Each morning, the Port Authority delivers a permit to each cruise company for sailing in Ha Long Bay. Both day cruises and overnight cruises are regulated this way. In case of bad weather conditions and risk of tropical storms, the Port Authority might limit the possibility of cruising and even decide to cancel all cruises. In such a case, final decision by the Port Authority is usually known only by 3:00 PM on the day of departure.

Just had the most amazing experience on the Hera cruise. From the moment we stepped into the terminal all the staff were of the highest level. The rooms were of the highest quality and so very clean and the Air Conditioning so cold which was so welcoming. Special mention to Kenny, Michael, Tom and Jolie and all the staff went above and beyond to make our stay the most special and amazing experience we hold have had. THe food and cocktails are next level so yummy!! All I can say is DO IT!!!! You will not regret booking a cruise on Hera

2 nights/3 Day cruise… we had the most perfect weather for our cruise! Halong Bay is breathtaking! The staff on board went above and beyond to make our stay spectacular! Kenny, Michael, Tom, Jolie & all the crew – thank you! Without you all it would not have been as amazing as it was! I will definitely be back to Hera Cruises again!

I went on a 2 night/3 day cruise and it was wonderful. The food was great, the service was amazing, and Kenny G was an excellent cruise director. The entire staff was accommodating and helpful at every meal and activity. I would definitely book another Hera Cruise.

An incredible trip and life experience from start to finish.

Our 3 day (2 night) cruise was actually cancelled due to a typhoon entering Halong Bay. However, Aphrodite/Hera’s customer service rep, Angela, was extremely helpful and accommodating to rebook the trip to suit our needs – which we had to change to 2 days (one night) due to the flights we had already booked. There was no question of retaining any of our money, which I know other cruises do. We could either have a full refund or re-book.

From the moment we stepped on board, we were awestruck at the beautiful craftsmanship all around the ship. The bar area and restaurant are stunning in every way and what a setting! The rooms are spacious and fantastically designed with traditional wooden methods.

As the ship set sail, we were treated to a delicious 5 course meal, cooked by a young, but very talented chef as the stunning islands passed us by. The food continued to surpass all expectations throughout the voyage.

‘Tom Cruise’, ’Kenny’ and ‘Lisa’ attended our every need and made the whole trip an unforgettable experience that we will remember forever. They served and assisted us with continued courtesy, showing great attention to detail. Kenny, the chief crew member, created some fabulous cocktails – his mango and passion fruit daiquiri is a triumph! ‘Tom Cruise’ was helpful throughout the cruise and provided technical support for WiFi and assisted us with great humour throughout.

As the ship passed around Halong Bay, more earth shattering beauty than you could imagine unfolds before your eyes at every turn. This really is one of the most beautiful places on Earth and it MUST be seen. Watching the sun set over the islands, whilst sipping delicious cocktails, was a truly magical experience.

The only criticism I can give about the trip is the charge for kayaking, which is 300k VND per person. As a 5 star Cruise, I would expect this to be included in the cost. However, I should point out we were made aware of the charge.

All in all, an incredible trip you shouldn’t miss. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hera Cruises and just wish the trip was longer. It’s been the highlight of our 3 weeks in Vietnam.
