"I went on the Emperor Cruise and stayed in the Hue room. It was by far the most luxurious boat in the bay. The staff treated me like royalty and the interior design of the boat is very authentic and fit for an emperor. I especially liked the old working gramophone in one of the rooms. I was served with dishes that the emperor used to eat and the art work in the boat is really something spectacular! They have a spa and a fitness room on-board and we did Tai Chi early morning too. Apart from the lovely boat and staff service, Ha Long Bay itself was far more mesmerizing than the pictures I had seen before I went."
"We booked the Emperor cruises from our friends recommendation and enjoyed it so far. This cruise was perfect, both relaxing and at the same tine exploring the area. The boat was nice and clean, very good food, kind and helpful staff, great activities. We really liked especially the kayaking at the first day. Our tour guide was super nice and outstanding with great vibes and energy, very good English so we learnt a lot from the trip. Highly recommended!!!"
"We did 2 days 1 nights on Emperor Cruises Ha Long in mid of May 2017 and we 99,99% satisfied with our trip. The pick up was good, with limousine car and experienced driver. The 3.5hr trip from Hanoi is long, but nice classical music and new magazines on the car make you relaxing. The boat is a masterpiece in deed with spacious and cozy suite cabin- 43 m2 with full facilities like a 5 star hotel on the Bay. My room have full ocean view, private balcony and bathtub. And its perfect when we enjoyed our a la carte dinner on the balcony, completely private, excellent food, great house wine and attentive butler. The itinerary are well arranged enough for us to enjoy kayaking, caving, bamboo boating and messaging on boat. We really love the art tour on board with many beautiful paintings of a Vietnamese artist. Just a pity -0,001% that the time of 2d1n is too short to discover more about Ha Long and the Emperor Cruises itself. Will recommend my friends about this cruises."
“My wife and I found Emperor cruise by chance when looking for a destination for our honeymoon. We were a little bit disappointed when we saw the boat from the outside because we were expecting something a little more traditional. However, when we went inside the boat... wow, we knew we made the right choice. Especially when we were upgraded to the best room in the cabin named: The king cabin, the staff told us it was a gift for our honeymoon. The decoration inside the cabin was spectacular, roses, swans made from towels and complementary wine. We were a little overwhelmed at that moment. The whole trip we felt like the staff were our personal helpers. We had a great time relaxing on a bamboo boat that took us to a fishing village and explored some caves in the bay with a really great english speaking tour guide. The food was a mixture of Asian and western and we had the choice of an a la carte menu or a buffet. The main problem we had was the the King cabin was so great we didn't want too leave. However, we are glad we did because we had such a great time. We hope to return again soon and take the speed boat trip as we didn't have enough time to do it all.”
“We have justed experienced 01 night on Emperor Cruises Ha Long. The service is excellent, especially Thomas and Chuong who are professional but warm &friendly. They are our butler who introduce us our rooms and leaded us to the cave, did the kayak and visited fishing villages. My room is Nha Trang suite, 43 m2 with beautiful ocean view and large private balcony on the upper deck. It is professionally set up with welome complimentary sparkling wine and seasonal fruits. But I love the bathroom the most as I could relax on the bathtub with jacuzzy, sipping some wine and view the bay. The set lunch on the sundeck and the a la carte dinner were all high lights as it was so fantastic. We did enjoy every moment with Emperor Cruises.”
“Right from our first communication with Kevin, first via email and then when he kindly came to our Hanoi hotel to give us our itinerary and answer any questions we might have, we knew this would be a special trip. We were picked up in a luxury van, cold water, scented towels were provided. A lovely drive, albeit a little long, to Halong Bay, with a timely bathroom stop along the way. We arrived at the pier and were immediately warmly greeted by Tommy and Truong, they escorted us to the boat and took care of our luggage. Our King and Queen suites were fabulous. We enjoyed the first of many incredible meals, we were treated to lovely massages, lots of sightseeing tours, excellent drinks, lovely food and we were incredibly well cared for by the staff. Our special thanks to Truong, who we adored. The lovely young girls who served us and accompanied us on our day trips, especially our lovely trainee who spoke to our son and daughter in law in flawless Chinese. On one of our side trips, an American little boy, not with our group, fell and cut his leg. Truong and Lan, with no hesitation, administered first aid to the little fellow, admirably and with little fanfare. All in all, a marvellous holiday! A second special thank you to Kevin, who suggested we do a Vespa tour of Hanoi, we did and it was the most fun thing to do, lovely young men, a great lunch and lovely views of Hanoi."
