Truly a wonderful experience! The staff on the ship was phenomenal and really took pride in taking care of the customers. They were very welcoming. The drinks were great. The food was plentiful. The room was clean. I had no complaints. The lady that made this cruise such a great experience was Hana. After booking she contacted me on WhatsApp and I was a little skeptical at first but I wouldn’t be writing this review if it wasn’t for her. She made sure everything ran smoothly from start to finish and any time I had a question or a concern she responded to me in under 2 minutes. Bottom line is if you get to work with Hana you are in good hands and don’t worry about anything. It was such a great experience I wish I would’ve stayed two nights instead of only one. I would highly recommend this cruise!

We loved our Cruise with Athena! We took the trip for our anniversary and the staff went above and beyond to make it so special and memorable. The cave activity was wonderful too and we went at the perfect time so it wasn’t too crowded. The rooms were stylish and comfortable with incredible views of Halong Bay. The food was also buffet which is my favourite way to eat! All we wish is that we could have done more nights on board! Thank you all, we won’t forget our time on Athena.

We really enjoyed our trip! The day before, we got a message asking if we would like an upgrade to Wonderbay. We said yes and glad we did. We meet great people and the activities we fun. Buffet lunch was good!

Beautiful nature, exciting activities (kayaking, cave visit), this is a much recommended trip. The lunch was delicious, the tour guide knowledgeable and friendly, we enjoyed this tour a lot!

Excellent tour well worth the trip. Really enjoyed every part of the day. Kayaking is a must, Amazing views all day.
