When we first saw the ship we were happy but not overly hopeful of what to expect. We had upgraded to a room with a balcony and when we entered we were really pleased. The room was lovely and regardless of the fact that the air conditioning did not work for our entire trip which was quite unbearably hot, we still had a great time. The ship schedule is busy leading you to think that there's no time for relaxation but this is not the case at all. We chatted to everyone on the boat, made friends and enjoyed a bbq dinner on the sundeck in the evening followed by a night of drinking and laughs and a spot of what was meant to be squid finishing but we're sure was more likely just dangling a line on a stick in the water. Great fun though. Kayaking was brilliant and wonderfully surreal as our guide Binh sang as we floating gently on the bay making it an idyllic experience. We had a chance to swim following this before returning to the boat for a shower and happy hour cocktails. We stayed up quite late drinking and chatting and although this meant the staff also had to stay up they were nothing but pleasant and helpful. Others on the boat at the same time chose other activities which they too enjoyed and some stayed on the boat to relax so you were free to make choices that suit your preferences. The food provided was very tasty and our bar bill was much cheaper than expected. Many people have said the drink is very dear on-board but really a couple of quid for a beer is cheaper than you'd get anywhere back home and much more refreshing in the midday heat to enjoy. We would absolutely recommend Garden Bay 2 and will look to book again if we return to Halong Bay
The tour was good but what made the experience great was having an amazing tour guide join the tour. If you are on a Garden bay cruise of halong bay.. Kien is your go to guy! Exuberant personality with fantastic information to share about the culture, general vietnamese life and encouraged all members of the tour to get to know one another. Highly recommend this experience because of this man!
