Garden Bay Legend Cruise

Formerly Ginger Cruise, it now becomes one cruise member in Tonkin Cruises group from January 2017. Garden Bay Legend cruise has just reopened back from August 2017 after a long hard renovation. Built to resemble a traditional wooden junk, the Garden Bay Legend cruise features wood-paneled lounges, shimmering silks, and Indochine-style furnishings. Simple yet elegant, the cabins feature large windows – perfect for viewing the Bay’s ever-changing scenery. With just ten cabins, the Garden Bay Legend offers an intimate means of exploring Halong Bay. Guests can rise before dawn and take a Tai Chi class on the Sundeck; join the friendly kitchen staff in a Vietnamese cooking class, and swap stories on plush sofas in the boat’s cozy bar. Surrounded by the legendary islands of Bai Tu Long bay in Halong, you will feel relaxed, recharged and inspired by a magical journey.

We booked the 2 nights 3 days option on Marguerite Junk. They picked us up from our hotel in Hanoi (Old Quarter) on time (they even called the reception the day before to reconfirm our pick up time) and we got on a comfortable minibus. The driver was very careful and we felt safe the entire journey. The guide Tien was very informative. On the cruiser the room was great, very clean, not too small and they even prepared flowers and rose petals on the bed for our special occasion (honeymoon). We recommend you pay a bit more for a room on the upper deck as we did, as fellow travellers booked on the lower deck told us there was a really bad sewage smell in the mornings. The food on board was exceptional, very varied, large quantities and simply delicious. My husband does not eat fish nor seafood so they prepared separate food for him. However, I must say the drinks on board are really overpriced! No wonder people buy drinks from the small boats, it’s less than half price. We really recommend the 2 nights 3 days option as on the second day you really get to experience more of Ha Long, go kayaking in the beautiful area of the Caves of Light and Darkness and visit the Pearl Farm. The guide we had for this day however (I can’t remember his name unfortunately, but it is a local guide, not from the cruise) was quite terrible. He spoke very bad English, we struggled to understand him and tried all the time to talk us out of doing the activities we were supposed to do… For example he tried to convince us not to kayak because of the cold weather and pay extra for going on a rowing boat. Fortunately we insisted on kayaking and it was definitely worth it (with the rowing boat you don’t get to see the smaller caves). Also, while we were on the kayak the guide was always way ahead and not concerned at all about the rest of the people, we felt totally unsupervised and it was our first kayak experience… Then he said we could not go to a beach further South because of the wind… we still don’t know if it was true or he made it up. Anyway, the kayaking was great and it is worth the extra day in Ha Long. On the last day you do a bit more kayaking around the floating village and they teach you how to make the delicious spring rolls which is good fun and you get the recipe, too. After that you get to see fruit and vegetable carving, which I first thought was just something they do to fill in the spare time, but I must say it was very interesting. It is amazing what that chef can do with a tomato or a carrot…

I'd recommend Marguerite with no doubt, if you aren't looking for a very luxury and expensive trip, but a good middle class 3-star room, good food, very nice guide Qui, nice tourists (of course, that can't be guaranteed at all - but it was) to have good time together. Well organized. If you want to save money - order the package at their website - and you will get a good hotel stay and airport transfer for a very reasonable price. City trip with the guide will be just a gift - I compared the prices...

We booked a two day one night trip on the Marguerite and had a fabulous time. The boat is in great condition with lovely cabins with doors which open straight onto the deck and large windows. There is a great lounging and viewing area on the top deck where tai chi is taught at sunrise, great way to start the day. The staff were really friendly and helpful, food was delicious and plentiful, and I even received a cake with fireworks and a lovely bunch of flowers on my birthday. I would definitely recommend the Marguerite to anyone considering a trip to Halong Bay.

My husband and I spent 2 days and 1 night on the Marguerite Junk. We had a great time,exploring the caves, going to the beach,rowing,squid fishing,Tai Chi,star gazing and watching the beautiful scenery. Our guide Rocky was with us from leaving Hanoi until our return back. This was very informative, as well as learning he has a fantastic imagination when it comes to rock formation. The junk and staff were 5 star all the way. The rooms were clean, excellent staff and fantastic food. Would highly recommend Marguerite Junk.
