The full package!”
I went on this trip with my brother to explore Ha Long Bay. We were picked up from our hotel in Hanoi by a mini bus filled with other fellow travellers. It took a little while for them to get us on board (felt like there was a lot of waiting around, especially after the ride from Hanoi). But when we finally did get on board it was a fantastic experience. The service was very good, they always kept us informed of the activities that were coming up and gave us the flexibility to decide which activity to follow/or not. The bed was comfortable and it was so nice to wake up to the view in the morning. So many photos taken during our stay on this cruise! We loved it and would recommend this to our friends and family.
Our 2-day / 1-night trip with Glory Legend was extremely enjoyable. As we travelled as a family, we had two adjourning rooms. While there was no balcony, all rooms have full height sliding windows which you can open to welcome the Halong Bay breeze. It was a treat just sitting by the windows! The crew on board was an enthusiastic and professional team, and the staff did a great job executing the programme and leading the island visits. The local Vietnamese and seafood meals prepared by the kitchen, helmed by a young lady chef, were delicious. A crew member (sorry didn't take note of the young man's name) also took the initiative to entertain our table by demonstrating the various napkin folding techniques after dinner. Itinerary worked for us as it was fairly well spaced and it didn't feel too rushed.
Excellent trip at Halong Bay!”
We had a great time in our trip to Halong Bay courtesy of Glory Legend Cruise. From the pick up to hotel, to the waiting area in the port, to the facilities of the cruise itself, to the food that they serve and the attractions/activities in halong bay. We had a great view and great time in our 2 days 1 night cruise! It must be noted that the water in Halong Bay is not clear, thus you cannot enjoy swimming unlike in Palawan, Philippines or other beaches. I was able to get information on the cruise from other booking sites. However, pricing wise, Agoda gave me a good pricing with 10% discount! Thus, were able to save as much as USD 25 per head. Also, unlike in other sites, Agoda provide free cancellation and no advance payment.
The boat was beautiful. We loved sitting on the top deck. The food was very good and there was always a lot of it so you didn't go hungry. The staff were very helpful and the whole tour was well-organised. The drink prices were a bit steep compared to elsewhere but it was good they offered happy hours! Would recommend for couples and groups.
Value for money, beautiful view, nice staffs, great food”
I and my my wife traveled on Feb 3-5, we enjoy very much with this selected cruise, nice staffs and really really great food, the drink may be too expensive which I recommend you to prepare your own drinking water if possible, in conclusion, worth your money and the right choice..
Staff are Amazing!”
We joined for NYE 2016/7. GREAT service from AMAZING staff. The location is SUPERB for dramatic scenery and the food was top notch. Bar is a bit pricey, but 2 happy hours each day helped. Would definitely recommend!
We had a wonderful stay with Glory Legend Cruise with good services from hotel staffs especially the cruise manager. However, we felt that it could have been better if there are more rest time interval in between program and activities. Overall, We recommend Glory Legend Cruise for halong bay trip
Free Upgrade to Pelican Cruise”
We initially booked for the Glory Premium Cruise but were upgraded for free to their sister company, the Pelican Cruise. No complaints there as Pelican is a 5 star cruise and is bigger than the Glory Cruise. Staff and service were great. Cruise itinerary were awesome too, though it would be better if they had more activities on board. Overall, it was a great vacation.
A must when in vietnam”
We had such a lovely 3 days on board the glory cruise. Amazing scenery we will never forget and the boat is very modern, clean and comfortable. We had a lovely host named 'happy', he spoke excellent english and went above and beyond to ensure all guests were happy. He was also full of lots of local knowledge, which was very helpful in places such as the caves. Food was brilliant on board, however you get farrrrr too much plus in our opinion too much seafood (and we love seafood!). So if your not so keen i suggest opting for the meat only option. If your in halong bay go with glory cruises.
Great communication with the company via email to organise taxi transfer. We travelled on a mini bus which was free. We were upgraded from the premium to the luxury boat - guessing this is due to numbers. Room was cosy and clean. Amazing views out of large windows. Complimentary fruit and water provided. Lots of hot water for shower. Our guide Kenny was brilliant though at times it was tricky to understand his English. The boat sticks to a tight itinerary so there isn't much time for relaxing on the boat. Dinner was mainly seafood and standard was good.
Repeat of program for 3D2N option”
Toilets did not look like the ones in the photo (no marbled walls). Cruise is very commercialized as there was little thought put into organizing activities for 3D2N group. If you decide to go for the 3D2N option, pls note that on the 2nd day, you will be transferred to a day cruise in the morning to explore the quieter parts of Halong Bay. Meanwhile, the cruise will drop-off the remaining 2D1N group and pick-up a new group of passengers. You will return to the cruise at about 3pm and the activity will then be the same as the first day. In this aspect, the cruise should really think about having a different program for people who paid for ab additional night. With that said, overall it was still a nice experience with good service from crew members
Great honeymoon location”
The overnight cruise was a fantastic experience, we were looked after by fantastic staff with delicious food and we were also fortunate enough to have rose petals on our bed. The activities on the boat were great fun, but they were a little rushed. It would be nice to spend a little more time on the islands we visited or where we went kayaking; 45mins turns it into a bit of a rush.
The staff were very friendly and informative. The room was clean and comfortable. The meals were gre”
The only negative I had about the tour was that I booked a family room for my family of 5 which slept 4. I expected to pay a surcharge for one more child but 3 days before the tour left I was notified by the cruise company I would have to pay 75% of the adult cost as a surcharge for 2 children, despite only needing one more bed. It would have been cheaper to book 2 separate rooms but by then was too late to change. Very disappointed with the Glory Legend's sales team. However, everything else was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed the cruise.
Requires maintenance ”
We were a group of 6 and had booked 3 rooms with twin beds. One bed in one of the rooms was found to be soaked in water that leaked from the floor above. Luckily the staff was responsive and switched a room immediately. Another room has a faulty bathroom door and can't be closed at all. In this room, we also noticed that the aircon was leaking. Overall, still a pleasant experience as the staff onboard are very kind and warm
Great crew, Good food, Great experience ”
Pick us up right from where we stayed at Hanoi. Driver was late about 20mins but I think it's normal because the old quarter streets could easily be congested. Overall bus transfer to Halong Bay is comfortable and clean limo bus with much leg room. Friendly staff guide us to cruise and warm welcome presentation from crew captain. We got on Pelican cruise instead of Glory legend. Pelican cruise is bigger in size compare to Glory. Rooms are not big but comfortable. Toilet is clean but you can see some hairs underneath the wooden tiles. Buffet lunch and 5 course dinner are good. Very friendly staff and takes good care of us. Overall, great experience cruising along Pelican cruise but the attractions and stops we went are so crowded and you can see many other company cruises alongside with you.
Survived the bus trip-phew!”
January 2017, family with kids (9&15). Not on a million dollar budget, this seemed the best option in our price range. After 3 weeks of travelling Vietnam, it was a destination we were looking forward to. The bus trip was long, uncomfortable and a bit nerve wracking. The number of times our driver slammed on the brakes was disconcerting but we eventually made it to our destination. The tourist trap marble monument refreshment stop was a welcomed toilet stop, but the disabled artist workshop was not a highlight. Items are very overpriced and with due respect to the artists (a bit tacky). You're best off stocking up on some snacks and drinks to take on the bus with you prior to leaving Hanoi. On the long trip up, we passed by some very interesting towns and villages, however, our guide was snoozing, so we didn't get any commentary and therefore have no idea what some of the stuff was we passed. Upon arrival in Ha Long Bay terminal area, it is obvious what a huge industry this cruise business is. It's misleading when you see photos of the beautiful Ha Long Bay and one cruise boat. Believe me, there's scores of them, and you won't feel like you're on your own, it's like being in a regatta. After a medium wait time while passports and other administrative stuff was done, the vessel was restocked and ready to board. I would not recommend this particular cruise for anyone who has any sort of mobility issues, possibly even just the use of a walking stick or slight unsteadiness on your feet, as the gangplank up to the bow is a little precarious, though the friendly staff assisted all on board. After a brief welcome and safety induction (yes there did seem to be enough life jackets for everyone!), we were allocated our cabins and left to explore. Note: there is no safety rail at the bow of the vessel, so those with small or curious kids may need to tie a rope on them. Upstairs was a nice little sundeck & bar area. Areas for improvement would be the addition of som
Staff made this trip 1000x better!”
I originally booked this trip with a friend, but we booked it separately and ended up on different boats. Everyone else on the boat was in a large group, leaving me as the only solo traveler. The staff saw this immediately and became my "friends" while doing everything they could to make me feel comfortable and make sure I was having a good time. They didn't just do this for me, but for everyone else on the boat as well. The excursions took us to beautiful viewpoints and were all included in the price of the cruise. There was way more food that I could eat but it tasted incredible. I would definitely recommend this company for a Halong Bay cruise!
Beautiful boat, great staff”
It was exactly how I imagined it, loved it. Since it is a popular destination, it's a little annoying how crazy it is, but they have it dialed in. I was a little concerned about the food situation, since I am the only one apparently that doesn't like seafood. They address those issues right away with asking people if they have any dietary restrictions etc. The one thing for me was I really just wanted to cruise around and relax but there was so much to do, I could have just stayed on the boat and not joined in. I felt rushed and not really relaxed. I knew that going in so it wasn't an issue. Loved it!
loved this trip! ”
We had a lovely time on this trip. The staff were lovely and the views stunning even in the slightly rainy weather. The rooms were clean and decently sized and the activities (except for the visit to the fishing village which was a bit meh) were great!
OMGSH BEST CRUISE EVER!!”
No exaggeration! This was 1 of the highlights of Vietnam 3days 2nights is the way to go for you to enjoy it and not be rushed. Everything about this cruise was exceptional! The boat, the balcony rooms hands down great! The itinerary I loved. EVERYTHING WAS GREAT!! the transport there with the guide. The cruise was amazing!
