Beautiful location but disappointed”
The place; Ha Long is beautiful. Food was good. Company was nice.
We went through APT Travel and didn't think much of them! Very good on email but it went downhill from there! We got the bus from Hanoi, and went to their offices to get it. But the bus was packed with no thought and only some seat belts. Bossed about quite a lot and very much "must stick to plan" so rushed around by your guide. AC on boat was turned on at 7pm and off again at 7am, with no good reason really. (Except to get people up for breakfast!) The units seemed to be freezing or inadequate so lots if grumbles in the morning. We were told breakfast at 7am and then lunch at 10.30am! Also there is no provision for drinks at meals unless you buy it - there was no water provided. It was boiling in the morning, but because they had turned off the AC and lights to the cabins, they turned into sweat boxes, and made packing away unbearable. When we asked for them to be turned on, we got "it wasn't possible due to boat moving, electric drain, battery use, blah blah blah" but when we got more insistent, and pointed out the crew were managing to watch TV, they put them on. After lunch on the boat in port, we were hurried off, to then sit and wait in a outdoor restaurant for 45min for the bus to arrive (everything at your own expense!) It was still very hot! When the bus came it was all rush again, and we seem to have gained people! There was huge chaos about who goes where and the bus was simply not big enough for the number of people AND their bags! I am not sure about any levels of HSE in Vietnam, but this was definitely an overcrowded bus! There was also a real anomaly with the different itineraries that were floating around - not sure how one boat would manage to deliver all the different promises! Ha Long Bay is amazing but I felt sad at how desperately over visited it was - all glory was gone and, honestly, you would better going to another area; the rights parts of Thailand are just as beautiful but with no-one else around.

Extensive and comprehensive itineraries”
The iconic and beautiful features and parts of the Halong Bay are well covered by their tours.
The Halong Bay is breath-taking. Awesome hills and landscape befitting those of fairyland. The set-back we have is the cruise-boat we were on. The window panes were rusty and dusty and the worn-out exterior didn't help either. The wooden decor, though not much of a decor, made the cabins look tired, dark and heavy. A sense of dismal hanged in the air. The foot-massage we had was nothing more than someone stroking your feet. It was a waste of time. I suppose when a free massage is thrown into the cruise fare, you can't complain much.

An experience not to be missed!”
Gorgeous views
i was happy with the halong dragon deluxe cruise we booked and the price we got with agoda. it was less than at a sapa travel agency, even with a discount, so great value! we had an amazing view from our room! food was only okay. staff was friendly although we were a bit rushed along the way. all the boats out there are pretty much painted white. no exotic brown wooden junks like in the pictures. all the boats are quite worn looking overall, but looked about the same class although there were a few standouts. all in all, you probably get what you pay for in each category.

Good cruise with nice staff”
Nice staff, top deck
We enjoyed a nice time on this boat. At arrival we were given refreshing towels and a cool drink. The room was not very spacious and it was pretty humid. Aircon worked well and the shower was good. Food was delicious, but the breakfast should be improved (lack of choice). In general we enjoyed the trip, but for more than 1 night, we would choose a better option.

Clean boat Dragon Deluxe”
Ample food and deck space
It is after all a boat, so expect cabin electricity to be available when at moorings and same with hot water pressure,it is there for the morning shower but not in the evening- but scolding hot from the individual bathroom heaters. The aircon/heater is a bit of a puzzle as the control is not in English, mine cycled all night inthe heat setting.

Not too many travellers on the boat
trip to halong bay is a must in vietnam. i made a last minute decision to book with halong dragon cruise - deluxe, which ended up being more 'standard' than 'deluxe' and this might be always the case for the solo traveler. the actual tours are 'standard' for majority of operators. we experience two tour guides, where the first one, who stayed on the boat overnight, was a really friendly young guy, who made us all feel welcome. the second tour guide, who traveled with us back to hanoi was rather rude. the main let down were the meals - not much flavor. i also felt that the sheets in the cabin could have been cleaner.

Boot ok, Essen schlecht, Service noch schlechter”
nicht empfehlenswert!
Aufgrund einer Vereinbarung wurden wir nicht in der Altstadt abgeholt, sondern mit dem ausdrücklichem Hinweis bitte pünktlich zu sein, an einem anderen Ort. Hier warteten wir ohne eine Information zu bekommen dann 35 Minuten auf den Bus. Gleiches wiederholte sich auf der Rücktour allerdings mit 40 Minuten Verspätung. Diesmal wollte der nur vietnamesisch sprechenden Fahrer und irgendwo in Hanoi rauslassen, damit wir dann mit Taxi fahren sollten. Nach meinem Protest lieferte er uns bei dem Office von APT-Travel (Firma merken und meiden!) ab, wo sich herausstellte, dass er die Strasse nicht kannte. In der Halong-Bucht auf dem Boot angekommen erwartete uns ein ziemlich scheußliches Mittag, was keinem der 22 Gäste richtig gefiel. Das Abendessen hingegen war gemessen am Mittag ein Genuss, gemessen an unseren Erwartungen und an der vietnamesischen Küche ein Drama. Das Mittag am nächsten Tag wurde in einem Restaurant eingenommen, in welches wir ohne weiteres auch selbst gegangen wäre, allerdings bekamen wir dort nicht die Köstlichkeiten der Speisekarte, sondern billiges Touri-Essen, mit tiefgefrorenen Frühlingsrollen. Die Zimmer auf dem Boot waren sauber, wie auch die Toiletten. Die Matratzen steinhart. Klimaanlage wurde erst nach dem Abendessen angemacht, so dass man nach dem Duschen gleich wieder ins Schwitzen kam und fluchtartig das Zimmer verlassen musste. Die Preise für eine Flasche Wein lagen bei 18 $, was 600% über den normalen Preis liegt. Sofern man den ganzen Touri-Nepp, wie Kayak fahren, Baden an einem überfülltem künstlichen Strand und Besuch einer Perlenzucht nicht mitmachen möchte, kann man an Deck die Schünheit der Halonbucht genießen. Die wirklich sehenswerte Halongbucht sollte man tatsächlich mit den Großen der Branche unternehmen. Diese Firma am Besten meiden!!

Schönes Schiff und sehr nette Crew”
gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältns
Die Zimmer sind gepflegt und sauber. Man fühlt sich gut aufgehoben bei der Crew, die immer sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend ist. Einziger Nachteil: die Matratzen. Mann könnte ebenso auf dem Boden schlafen: steinhart
