Serenity Cruises

Whilst some cruises appeal to a fun-loving crowd, Serenity Cruises draw a quieter, more style-conscious customer. They are cruises for discerning people who dream of floating on a calm, azure sea, among limestone peaks under boundless skies. Cruises designed for self-contemplation, to discover your inner resources and how strong your connection is with nature and local culture. Serenity Cruises is my way to bring “luxury” back to its root – not just about the modernity and high-end furniture but more importantly, the precious experience and feeling achieved from the wonder of nature and the professional services. I entered tourism industry 10 years ago and experienced enough to understand that our customers’ experience is fundamental for our stable development. There is only one boss – the customer.

We were very worried at the price of this tour initially but have got to say worth every dong from the moment picked up at hotel to drop off at hotel. All the cre won the boat are very attentive and very good at looking after you , Louis, Nok and Gin in particular Gin our tour guide was amazing throughout the tour with her humour and knowledge, we had a lovely kayak alongside gin and talked about all the marine life that may be in halong bay !! This lady works so hard and is so happy and smiley all the time. She’s a great employee for your company. If we could rate gin any higher we would :) The tour itself was very good and full of activities, although we were outsmarted by squid during the fishing :) Rob and Banana
