All in all it was a great boat tour. The food was excellent. The crew on board was super friendly and helpful. Our tour guide "Mi" was super friendly, shared a lot of knowledge with us and repeated things if necessary. She was contactable at any time. The program was a standard tourist program. Mass processing as with all other boats. The program of the tour reads more than it actually is. For example, the "cooking class" means that everyone rolls 2 spring rolls and explains what's inside. It was all over in 10-15 minutes. I would have liked more special offers on the ship. Nothing happened after dinner. The room cabins were larger than expected. But the beds were very hard and there was a lack of storage space because there was virtually no piece of furniture in it. We only got the information that plastic bottles are not allowed to be taken on the ship for environmental reasons on the bus, when everything was already bought.

Our guide, Jackey from Pheonix Tour, helped our family to get used to the cruise. He was humorous and so friendly that our family laughed a lot during the whole trip. The food was nice, and the program is also great. If my friend wants to do the cruise tour, I'll recommend this.

Tinh, our guide, was great. Full of energy and very amusing. He was good at keeping things to schedule which was important as there were lots of activities. The boat was nice, although the beds were very hard so we were glad we only did the 1 night option. Lots and lots of seafood which was a nice bonus.
