Staff were kind and eager to please. However, our Tour Director was difficult to understand with his English pronunciation. The ship itself was beautiful, full of mahogany and marble, and our cabin had a small balcony to view the beautiful karst islands of Lan Ha bay. Excursions were limited to kayaking once a day And a bicycle tour to a remote village if one stayed two nights. Food, though plentiful was unremarkable & Western-style choices were less available. Our only true complaints were that we had drain fly infestation in our bathroom sink, and a musty smell in our cabin, likely from mold or mildew; when I brought these concerns up to the cruise company, they comped us a free private transfer to the airport the next day, so all in all an excellent experience.

We went on a 3 day 2 night cruise to lang ha bay, it was purely delightful. We were treated to a cooking demonstration, tai chi lessons everyday, kayaking and a bike ride to a local village. It was an amazing trip and I would recommend this to anyone who would like to see the wonderful sights.

It was a great pleasure to cruise along Ha Long and Lan Ha Bay with Le Theatre Cruises. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one. The cabin was very comfortable and there were plenty of activities available to keep you busy. I would like to say a special thanks to our host Peter, our butler Anna, our bar tender/DJ Blue, tour director Tom and countless others who are an asset to the company.
