Didn't provide us the correct room type

Posted Feb 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
I booked a triple room, but end up with a double room and a mattress on the floor!!! This really disappointed us, as one of us literally have to sleep on the floor. The service and food is not bad.

Very sweet crew

I enjoyed my experience. If you book directly with the company they will pick you up in Hanoi from your hotel for free. TRANSPORTATION IS NOT INCLUDED WHEN BOOKING ON HOTELS.COM. Otherwise, I very much enjoyed the cruise, and the crew was very nice!

The poorest cruise ever

Posted Jul 27, 2013 on Hotels.com
This was the absolute worst point of my holiday in Vietnam the cruise consisted of an hour sail out to Halong bay where we dropped anchor and stayed till the next day where we were of loaded to a small day boat, while the boat went back to pick up a new set of passengers. we joined the boat in the evening for dinner and bed then sailed back the next day.A complete waste of time and money.dont do it get the day cruise from halong bay and save yourself a fortune.

Good food

Posted Jun 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
Overall, given that it is a cruise, it was ok. Food was very good with 10 course meal with seafood and meat. Tour guide was extremely informative and attentive to us. The other staff were too enthusiastic,overwhelming and overly friendly that it was quite annoying. Bed was quite comfortable given that the place was very small. My friend and I had to rub shoulder with each other to pass through. Toilet was quite musky with a smell and the speed of the water was really small with a sour taste.

Grate place for halong bay

Posted May 12, 2013
Pros: Tour guide
Cons: A overprice beverage
Location: Must see place
It was a perfect time in Halong Bay. Service and room condition were amazing. Just seem to be over price on a beverage in the cruise. They won't provid any beverage during stay. Anyway, overall we had an amazing time with Them..

Galaxy Cruse - Superb

We had such an amazing time, they cater for all ages and are very children friendly. Halong Bay is so beautiful by itself and the Galaxy Crusie made the entire trip so relaxing, comfortable, the meal were good and my wife is a pure vegatarian and they catered well for her dietry requirements. Thanks Galaxy Cruises for such a wonderful and memorable trip.
