Our cruise couldn't be faulted! From the moment we arrived until we left we had fantastic service and quality! There is about 400 boats floating around and half are day boats! We found the professionalism of the Aphrodite crew outstanding and believe they were a big reason for our enjoyment! You must stay 2 nights to really enjoy it! Everyone who went 1 night wishes they stayed longer!

I booked the 2 day, one night cruise. I had a great time and met several lovely people, both crew and guests. I loved the beautiful wood in my room and was impressed that it had a real bathroom! The bed and linens were extremely comfortable, there was a good air conditioner, and I slept very well. The food was all good and nicely presented. I enjoyed the caves. I was happy that I opted for the kayak excursion and saw wild monkeys! I also did the early morning tai chi. My memories of the sunset from the top deck will remain forever. This was my one big splurge on my trip but I have no regrets.

The pros: Excellent meals during lunch and dinner (very basic breakfast). Nice variety of meat/seafood/vegetarian options. Friendly staff. Comfortable rooms with the basic amenities. Great showers! Dining space is cozy and inviting. Kayaking excursion is really fun and also relaxing. Cooking class is fun the first time around but not for those staying 2 nights. Staff is very punctual with all activities/meal times. The cons: Drinks not included (as in most cruises). Limited daytime activities leaves you fiddling your thumbs during the rest of the time. This is especially true during the winter when the only common area outside of your bedroom to enjoy views is the dining room. They offered us night fishing knowing full well that squid season was over. Should offer those staying 2 nights with different acuities so that the trip does not become too repetitive. Not the best in the winter as you are constrained to warm areas which means only dining room. Guides provide very limited. basic information on Halong Bay itself. Limited to no wifi connectivity.
