The guest reviews are submitted by our customers after their stay at Imperial Legend Cruise in Ha Long Bay - 3 Days on Boat
Good: "We went on the Luxury Imperial Cruise,for the 3 day 2 night cruise.The boat was very nice, the service was excellent. The food was very nice and activities were great to experience. The kayaking was fun, the Pearl Farm was interesting. Jumping off the boat and having a swim was a great way to break the ice with the group on board.
The room was comfortable and you can't beat waking up to sunrise out your cabin window."
Bad: " "
Good: "The staff was fantastic - everyone seemed to care a lot for the guests and their well being.
The food was awesome - huge portions and lots of things to choose from. But, make sure you tell them when making the reservation if you are vegetarian so that they may buy enough tofu.
The rooms were comfortable and AC was strong."
Bad: " The boat is anchored in the same spot on both nights, so you don't get to wake up to new scenery."
Good: "We went on the Imperial Junk boat not the Luxury Imperial. We did the 3D2N on the boat the whole time (No Cat Ba Island). My partner is a vegetarian and she was served alot of egg++. We found the drinks to be very expensive, make sure you take at least 4 large bottles of water on board with you. We also took wine on board which cost us $10USD corkage, which worked out cheaper than what you could buy a bottle on board the ship. In saying all this we enjoyed our tour on the boat, the staff were nice. I would definitely recommend at least 3 days as we had the whole 2nd day swimming and enjoying Halong Bay. Luxury is a nicer boat but they do the same tour, same food & same drinks make sure you negotiate with the price of the tour. The scenery in Halong bay is amazing! "
