    Beautiful!”

    Great 2 day, 1 night trip. Tour guides Jenny and David were funny and had excellent English. David even provided entertainment in the form of puzzles and games for those who wanted. The boat was great - huge comfy bed in my cabin and bigger than expected bathroom. Tasty food (my only complaint would be too much food!) and catered well to vegetarian (and other) diets. We went kayaking and swam on a small beach, which was fun. Also visited a cave and had a spring roll cooking demonstration. There was a fully stocked bar for refreshments. My trip included transfers to and from Hanoi. As a solo traveller, I was pleased everyone was friendly and some wanted to socialise - as well as there being several families with young children. Overall, great trip, beautiful location, hassle free.

    Wonderful boat trip”

    We enjoyed a wonderful boat trip in Halong Bay with Golden Star Cruise! The staff cooked us many excellent meals and the friendly manager took us climbing and visiting a amazing cave! We stayed overnight in a very clean room and participated in a TaiChi class early in the morning. In advance we were afraid that the bay would be very crowdy as we say all the boats leaving but they spread to many different bays. The most pleasant fact about Golden Star cruise that they only accept maximum 12-18 people.

    Great two night cruise with super friendly crew”

    We really enjoy our time on the boat. The crew was super polite and friendly and guides were very informative. Food was amazing and different every time. The room was just fine for two days with AC and hot shower. Program is more or less same on all the cruise but we catch everything by the itinerary and we saw and did a lot. Everything was just nice :)

    Best tour ever!”

    I have no words to describe this tour. I read so many things about halong bay and I wasn't sure if I should stay a night on boat or just go for the day. I am happy I picked the boat overnight stay with Halong Golden Star cruise. This exceeded my expectations. Great food, drinks, great accommodation and most importantly the staff was amazing. Arrow was our guide. He is awesome! he is very well informed, very nice and always willing to help you with all you need. He kept our group very well entertained..You can pick this company with your eyes closed, and if you can pick your guide, ask for Arrow.

    Wonderful Cruise with amazing staff”

    Golden Star Cruise is a wonderful boat, not too large so that they can take personal care...the staff is wonderful and the activities nicely paced and well conducted. The food is excellent and our tour guide Binh was full of energy, and spoke good English. Swimming and Kayaking in the bay was a lifetime experience and the visit to the Surprise Cave amazing. A must do tour.

    Rooms, especially, beds are way too small. Food just acceptable. Friendly crew. The ship is old but all ships there are old. A very responsible and chatty tour guide we've got.

    The best thing was the night on the boat. So quiet. The food was not delicious, but normal cheap food. More Vietnamese style food would be great. Nothing special.

    Old boat but great staff”

    I was travellig solo and joined papaya cruise for 2D 1N. Tour guide was very friendly and had a lot of knowledge. The boat itself was very old, and if someone's taking a shower in another room you have to wait as there is no water coming out. No hot water at all from the tab or the shower - make sure you don't join the cruise on a cold day.. However, had a nice sun deck upstairs, and the staff was nice. Food was very nice, and we had a cool bunch of people on the boat which was a lot of fun.

    Great Experience of Overnight Cruise”

    Wonderful Experience, Splendid Views & Good Food

    I was recommended by a friend and after reading all the reviews, I decided give a try. No regret of booking an overnight cruise with Papaya Cruise - the tour guide is so friendly and helpful. My friends and I enjoyed the seafood lunch and dinner dishes but we wish they could provide more meals for breakfast which only comprise bread, jam, butter, fried eggs and dragon fruits. Wish to have more like ham, bacon and etc. We booked two deluxe twin rooms but we were given one deluxe triple room which is really huge and big. Love the room but I wish they could fix the room number 4 toilet door cause it can't be locked. Overall, we really enjoy the whole cruise. Thumb up to the No 1 (that's what our tour guide described himself) and the crews.

    Cheap and affordable cruise in Halong Bay”

    Cheap, friendly staffs,

    We had a good time with Papaya Cruise. The staffs are friendly especially the tour guide, Mr. Ton. The food is generally passable with good portion. The room is relatively comfortable and spacious what with it being a medium sized boat. The rooms are air-conditioned but only after 7 pm. Overall, an affordable experience of staying overnight on a cruise in Halong Bay.
