Did a lot of research on the different cruise options in Halong Bay and finally chose Era Cruise - totally no regrets! 1. Fast response (even on weekends). Other cruise website had poor or templatised response. Era Cruise had a human touch to the experience. Quick engagement, good response time and very to the point. Other cruise ships have a lot to learn from them. 2. Had one of the newest cruise ships - launched in 2017 and it shows in the rooms. Cleanlines and bed comfort was top notch (could use better pillows though ... minor grouse) 3. Has one of the larger cruise ship rooms size - 500 sq feet (larger than hotel rooms on land). Some of the rooms had private balconies, you could walk in your birthday suite ... just beware of passing ships 4. Good safety + new equipment. Quite impressed with the safety guidelines and safety vest. Even when they dock for guest to swim in the sea, they always had crew monitoring the people in the water. 5. Day boat - thank goodness for air-conditioned areas in the day boat (we went during summer). Day boat facilities - restroom, seats - were very clean and comfortable. It was so clean we slept on the floor after a heavy lunch 6. Food was good (some dishes was pretty good - sweet sour clams, pork ribs, oysters) but can do with a bit more varieties in the meals 7. Crew was very accommodative and friendly. 8. Cinema room was a nice touch, could do with more varieties of movies.

Unlike most people we made our own way to the port from Hai Phong, of which cannot comment on the transport. You’re taken on a transport boat at first which is quite hot and cramped - probably not the best for small kids, however it’s worth the wait. Once you board the boat you are briefed by the Manager who in our case was called Thành and was extremely professional (remembering our names every time we spoke) as well as treated his staff very well which is always nice to see. Every other staff was extremely happy and helpful which added to our own experience. The room was amazing, we got upgraded to a King suite as it was a birthday celebration and there was one free. Hands down one of the best rooms we stayed in. Beautiful bathroom with a bath looking into the bay. We really enjoyed the itinerary but you’re also reminded you are under no pressure to follow it. The kayaking was amazing as well as the swimming into the bay - once again the staff treatment was amazing as they also enjoyed a swim as well as take photos of us while in the bay. There are also a few extras which is fun to take part in - making of our own spring rolls was a good laugh! Dinner and lunch are to a very high standard so expect to loosen to a few notches after you eat. We were also treated to a lovely cake due to the birthday celebration, another couple also during dinner as it was their honeymoon. The only negative to the whole experience is the fact that the water is not free onboard and expensive. While you’re given one small bottle while kayaking we found we went a bit thirsty on the trip. Remember to bring yourself a few big bottles ahead of time as they only supply small ones. Upon checking out once again Thành was a super hero and helped arrange onwards transport! Legend.
