Without a second thought I would do this cruise and boat trip again. The boat is stunning and the rooms are luxurious even though most of the time you are standing on the top deck admiring the gorgeous view whilst the most friendliest staff assist you in any way they can. The activities that are offered are amazing and the guides and staff make the trip's more exciting. The price for this experience is fantastic and well worth it. If anybody is thinking about seeing Halong Bay travel with this cruise company and YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!!!
