Good: " I spent 3 days 2 nights on Dragon Pearl 2, the room was good, air-conditioned, great bed, fully self contained with own bathroom, high 3 to 4 star standard. The food will blow you away, just the very very best and if you do the 3 day 2 night option you will have dinner in a cave, I bet you will betaking about that experience for the rest of your life, I know I will be!! The staff could not be better, Vietnam has the very best people in hospitality in the world and this cruise has the best of them, no more need be said The visit to the fishing village (do try the honey wine), the kayaking, the beach swimming all out of this world "

Good: "I booked 3days halong bay trip and stayed overnight on dragon pearl cruise to visit Bai tu long & Halong bay. All were perfect : The Dragon's Pearl cruise was an amazing and easily one of the best things we have done while in Vietnam. Above everything on the boat that was excellent that cruised the less populated Bai Tu Long Bay and i did kayaking and swam on nice beaches and off the boat and visited a fishing and had a delicious dinner. Even with all of the activities there was a good balance of relaxing on the sundeck taking in the beautiful views all around you. The staff was also very professional and helpful. The food was very good ,each meal was at least 5 courses and very well done. It must be Halong bay & dragon pearl cruise for Vietnam trip."

Good: "We booked into Dragon Pearl 1 for a 3d2n cruise. i naturally fell in love with the cruise itinerary as we just wanted something relaxing to get away from the bust and bustle of city life. The cruise indeed left a memorable experience for us, even till now as im writing this review, im impressed with the service provided on board and the relaxing. The guide spoke pretty good English which was far better than many vietnamese out there. The impressive thing was our group of 19 pax comprises various food preference- be it vegetarian, no seafood, no beef etc. The crew was able to remember every single passenger\'s food preference on board, and even when we were all jumbled up in our seatings. I also loved that the cruise was pretty private along the way where there were only a few junks and the private beach was exclusive for indochina junks only.
Overall, it was a fantastic trip. Enjoyed it alot and would recommend anyone who intend to visit halong bay to take up this junk.
