Phenomenal service from pick up in Hanoi to being dropped off after the cruise. Staff were incredible, the itinerary was well thought out and put together and the food was out of this world. A truly memorable experience filled with lots of interesting information about the local environment and history. The community projects involving the company are great and it is great to see they are doing their bit to contribute to the local community. My partner and I don’t have a bad word to say about this trip. The staff went above and beyond to make it a great part of our travels in Vietnam.

Amazing! Wonderful Trip

When describing my experience on the cruise, the word I would use is Amazing! Boat was beautiful, staff were friendly, welcoming and couldn’t do enough to make us feel at home. The cabins are plush, clean and comfy & definitely worthy of 5 stars! I have high expectations & they were exceeded! The excursions from the boat are well organised and everything is catered for, the staff even bring along water to keep everyone hydrated. Definitely worth booking & well worth the money!!

Fantastic Luxury Cruise

We booked the three day cruise months ago after reading the reviews on the internet, and just finished the trip. The cruise was fantastic. We were on the Au Co 2 , and judging by the other boats we were one of the largest on the bay. We had an executive suite on the second deck, with a private balcony , near the bow, so away from the generators. We booked limousine transport from Hanoi through the company as well. No disappointments for us after our experience! We were picked up from our hotel on time, delivered to Bhaya's cruise terminal, greeted by Jay, assistant cruise director, and onto the ship. Everything was well done, from the fragrance in the room to the squid fishing! The staff were exceptional, all smiling, pleasant, and at the ready for any need. We enjoyed all the activities and the food was delicious and plentiful. The chef was a master at carving fruit. The boat was very safe with attention to detail, even when navigating the sometimes busy waters. We only had 22 guests, and 47 staff! We highly recommend this company - it's worth the money and you will be pampered the entire voyage. The bay is spectacular of course, but Au Co was exceptional. Special thanks to Jay, ATM, Lee, and Lincoln!!

Fabulous

We did the 2 night cruise of Halong Bay and enjoyed every minute. We didn't get the best weather but it didn't make a difference to us. We hardly noticed the rain because the crew carried on as if it wasn't raining and there was plenty to keep us occupied. Even the scenery was spectacular in the rain too. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The cabin was lovely and much larger than I had expected too. Many thanks to cruise director Joy and her helper Jay. It was a great trip.

Another world experience

Tried our first cruise around Halong Bay for 2 nights. Au Co cruises are top end of the market but you get first class treatment from hotel pick up to drop off The boat is big holds 96 but there was c30 on our cruise so lots of room. We had poor weather ie cloudy and drizzle rain for the whole time but did not detract from the experience. Very good activities visiting village on island and floating village. Also kayaking, squid disgusting and various others to keep you entertained. Crew and staff could not have been more helpful and cabin was big enough for 2 nights Food was plentiful and high quality. Scenery is surreal it was a shame we didn’t get some sun to bring out the colours more but you can’t book the weather! Well worthwhile experience

Best experience in Vietnam

This cruise was fantastic from the staff to the food to the rooms. Everyone went above and beyond to make our experience the best. We enjoyed visiting the fishing village by kayak, the cave tour and biking around Cat Ba Island and learning more about all these areas by the staff members who shared their knowledge. The meals were all delicious and there was always plenty to eat. Jay was especially helpful and friendly and always around to make sure we enjoyed every part of our stay. ATM was also very friendly and we enjoyed her tours and her tai chi class. Thank you to all the staff for making our trip unforgettable. Would definitely recommend this cruise.

Sensational 2 night cruise.

Wow this cruise was truly amazing and the quality of the cruise and boat itself was absolutely 5 star. From the welcome on board, the room, the views, the sensational staff to the amazing food this cruise was amazing. Cruise manager Kevin and his wonderful staff made this a once in a lifetime cruise to remember. Every meal was 5 courses of fabulous dining and ended with the on deck bbq meal, amazing. The entertainment on board was great and the staff were just so so helpful all the time. I can’t praise this cruise enough. Just do it you won’t regret a thing.
