Good: "Had a wonderful time. This is the only vessel to see the bay. Food was just outstanding, better than any food eaten on land in Vietnam Views a little of a let down due to early fog but got better as the day went on accommodation remarkable considering size of vessel. The 2 day was not enough, sad to leave. Highlight was the small village but you can just see how it is evolving into a tourist site but it\'s a price we have to pay I guess. Go now as I can see it changing. One point to note is that the tourist board wants to make it mandatory to paint these charming vesels white. Just absurd. In summary an experience not to be missed and now crossed off my live list "

Good: "We did The Red Dragon 2 day/1 night cruise along Bai Tu Long Bay within the UNESCO Ha Long Bay site.

Our time on the Red Dragon (27metres long, with 5 cabins, and 3 levels of awesomeness) was splendid. Although some of the services weren\'t of a \'luxury\' standard, i.e. having to wait in a run-down building owned by the company whilst we waited for the ship to be prepared, it was still very satisfactory (we were sheltered, our bags taken care of, there were fans, seats, and a clean toilet for use).
The cruise itself was the real highlight, and being an overnight cruise aboard a traditional-style junk, so it should be! Going to Bai Tu Long Bay instead of Ha Long Bay I think was the right decision for us, and going on the Red Dragon was even better, because it meant that we often found ourselves feeling almost alone on a boat that had 7 other guests, and a few cruel of something like 7 or 8 people.
The sleeping quarters were clean, well decorated, with a locking door, and private bathroom, and huge windows that looked out to the bay (with curtains for privacy).
The bathroom was more than adequate, and although we had minor issues - we couldn\'t get hot water to work to it\'s full extent, and had to flush at least 2 times to get the toilet to flush, it was clean, private, and modern.
We were provided with rubber flip-flops, and room slippers - the rubber flip-flops were great for use around the boat, and during activities, however the room slippers were worn and this appeared unhygienic.
As part of the cruise, there were several activities organised, and although there was a level of inflexibility, it was good that we weren\'t left wondering what we would do next, but hey, they can\'t please everyone now can they?
Well worth the money spent for all the moments of privacy, seclusion, and luxury that you have along the way.

Good: "We did the 2day/1night cruise in june on Red Dragon 2 and had a great time. One of the best things is they don\'t go to the same place as every other man and his junk. We only saw 1 or 2 boats the whole time which made it feel like you had the whole place to yourself. The food is amazing, with dinner being about 8 courses including whole steamed crab, sea bass, prawns etc. Drinks are pretty reasonable and service was great. Included Kayaking which a lot of the other boats don\'t.
Overall we loved it, and would highly recommend.
