Fantastic trip. Really enjoyable. Staff were welcoming, hospitable and friendly. The cooking lessons were good fun and the food was very tasty and served in just about the right portions. Our guide Harry was a very nice and friendly and it was easy to join in with fun things with him. He sang us some nice little songs about Vietnam and we collaborated on a duet of a Beatles song which we sang at every opportunity. A life long memory.

"Luxury cruise and good price"

Reviewed 2015-08-23

We chose this boat after getting the recommendation from Halong Bay Cruise and felt very satisfied to take their advice. From the moment we contacted them about airport transfers they were efficient, helpful and accommodating. Staff were friendly and helpful as my husband had a day of not being well. We booked package tour for 2 days and 1 night on this boat and it turned to be the highlight of total 6 days in Vietnam. Very nice and romantic boat. Too much food for choices went along with friendly and lovely servers. Cabin looks luxury like 5 star... good in all.

"Fantastic "

Reviewed 2015-03-02

Booked this boat via Halong Bay Cruise, an official company specializing for Halong Bay Cruise so they offered us very good price on this boat. The staff was fantastic, as was the food, and the room. We booked the family room with terrace at the front of the boat. It was really nice to have the views from the terrace because I was not able to do the tours with the kiddos. I can't wait to do it again. Thank you so much Kenny Lee and i will recommend your company to all my friends who intend to visit Halong Bay.

"Free pick-up if you book this boat via Halong Bay Cruises Company"

Reviewed 2015-03-02

We had a very nice stay at the Halong Paloma Cruise for 2 days 1 night. Everything on the cruise was as good as expected. We used the minibus shuttle from Hanoi to Halong Bay and back. I am aware that the traffic in general is crazy in Vietnam, but I still think that the driver should drive more responsible. We had many near death experiences on the drive. We would rather arrive 20 minutes later and have a comfortable drive. they give a good service and plenty of food; although they dont have cup and kettle in the room; but i can request and they make it for us what we need. Thank you so much Kenny for your kind offer the pick up from Hanoi to Halong Bay and bring us back as well.

"A must-do in Vietnam"

Reviewed 2014-06-16

We booked Paloma cruise for Halong trip and accidently booked for one person not two but they were brilliant to handle (of course had to pay for pax two) and the crew also helped us with the transfers which weren't in the original offer. Our guide was Star who was brilliant and gave us enough history info without going on for too long. We were far from packed out and in honesty didn't have the perfect floating party (we didn’t want families but there was only one) however, we had an absolute blast! The seafood was good, the boat itself was nice and the cabins were the best we experienced across our trip. We also were drinking quite a bit and unlike other reviews the prices were local charge not western as I had read on my search. I highly recommend Paloma to any couple looking for a woderful trip in Halong Bay

"Best price on great Halong Paloma Cruise"

Reviewed 2014-02-05

Very helpful staff, informative guide, clean amenities, nothing was too much trouble. However, it was great to have things to do like kayaking, exploring etc, it would have been nice to have the option to just remain on the boat and have some quiet time on the sun deck. Anyway we got good price via Halongbaycruises.org and would like to recommend this website for anyone who look for good price and great quality on cruising in Halong Bay, Vietnam.

Reviewed 2014-02-05

I and my partner stayed on the Halong Paloma Cruise for one night. Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very courteous and attentive. The breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets were delicious (especially the pho at breakfast and grilled seafood at dinner). We got to visit a cave and walk up Ti Top Island for a breathtaking view of Halong Bay on our first day. The next morning we woke up early for a rowboat ride to a lagoon. We had a wonderful experience and recommend booking them for your trip to this majestic Natural Wonder of the World.
