We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise with Athena. The staff were amazing, the food outstanding and we were blown away with the day boat activity on the second day of our cruise. We chose to do 2 nights and 3 days and were the only ones on the boat to do this. We were transferred to a day boat while the other guests were taken back to shore and were lucky enough to have the boat and a guide to ourselves. Gin, our guide was such a great host. We were also treated to a special breakfast on the second day and a different dinner menu on the second night. The boat was very nice, maybe a little tired in places but we were happy and felt we got more than our value for money. The manager on our boat Tim was a brilliant host, you can clearly see he treats his staff with the upmost respect. Thank you Athena cruises for making Halong Bay the highlight of our Vietnam trip! Also a shout out to Get Your Guide for the great communication all along.

We are really disappointed with our experience on this 3-Day cruise. First point is the driver who picked up us the first day which was really dirty and full of rubbish inside the bus. Once we were on the boat, we rented two rooms (a triple and a double) and to our surprise is that the triple room had a same price per person compared to the double and the extra bed is a mattress placed on a divan (really uncomfortable and unsafe) and all the amenities only for two people (even though we asked the general manager to add an extra, they didn't provide nothing to us). The price was really expensive for what we got. Even the activities programmed were also fake: on the list it was included films in the evening but staff told us that the TV is broken among other thing. On top of that, the shower on our room smelled really bad (like of someone had pee there). The cruise manager didn't help us on anything and we found problems everywhere. I would never recommend this cruise to anyone.
