Super romantic getaway with super nice service
Atmosphere, staff service & the total experience
It is superb. They gave us a surprise knowing we are on 2nd honeymoon by putting roses on bed & champagne in our room. Very thoughtful and made our day!

This is a great cruise
Nice boat, good rooms and tasty food
We had an excellent time on Marguerite Garden Cruise. There are many boats out there and it took long to select this one, but I would recommend this one to others!

Good service. Clean room
Good English speaking tour guide. Crew are nice with good service. Room is comfortable and food is average.
Room is comfortable. We stayed in Ocean view room but found that it was lack of privacy as ourside the windows are the corridor of which other guest would walk around. Therefore we seldom open it and become no view. If we choose again, will pick the superior one at lower deck. Beverage is at reasonable price.

Nice boat with great staff
Friendly staff, clean rooms and boat, organized tours
Clean boat and rooms. Staff was friendly and organized the day tours. Food was okay. Breakfast was not good. Drinks are very expensive and wine by the glass was conveniently not available. Bottles of wine were $40-80 and drinks were $10 very expensive for what you get.

Great staff, food and views
Top deck, food, friendly service
This was definitely one of the nicer ships we saw in the bay. The kept us busy with activities and fed the entire time and we even enjoyed the onboard wine. The staff was knowledgable and knew how to keep a group organized. We would recommend this to our friends or family looking for a trip to halong bay
