"Amazing Experience on the Huong Hai Sealife Cruise!"

Huong Hai Sealife Cruise

Just came back from a fantastic trip in Halong Bay for 3 days and 2 nights! We felt like this was a great amount of time to be there as it gives you plenty of time to take in the scenery without feeling too rushed. We had a great professional managing our cruise in Jackie! He was the perfect manager – smart, friendly, welcoming, funny and very organised and hard working. More mentions for the other staff, who were also terrific. We had a very nice little cabin with bathroom and balcony. Super comfy bed with some very nice air conditioning. I have no regrets for getting up early on both days to do the tai chi, which was very fun and did actually make me feel a lot more energetic for the day ahead!Incredible food. Great variety and quantity and really great taste as well. We made use of Happy Hour on both days and took our drinks to the sundeck to socialise with other passengers.I’ve got lots of nice words to say about the Huong Hai Sealife! It was a highly professional service from start to finish, but with the additions of some very friendly staff along the way. Big thank you to Sunny, Jackie and the team! It was the best thing we did in Vietnam and you should be very proud of the effort that you put in to make a great cruise!




"Great Value for Money"

Huong Hai Sealife Cruise

It would be best to stay for 2 nights in Halong Bay. We did the 1 night cruise and wish we stayed for another. We were treated to a nighttime lightning storm which was incredible.The Huong Hai Sealife was the perfect size for us. It was small and intimate but not so small as to feel cramped. We had lots of space to roam and the cabins, bathroom and all other rooms were to a very high standard. The rooms especially are like anything you would find on land if looking for a 4-star hotel.Very nice crew but big language barriers with most of them. They were friendly and smiley but sometimes struggled to understand our requests. Sunny and Jackie have excellent English and are really amazing – very friendly and enthusiastic people and you can’t help but just feel better in their presence!You get about 24 hours in the bay overall but at no point are you allowed to swim, which is annoying as they don’t tell you this beforehand. This would be a good selling point for the 2 night trip, which does let you swim when it goes to some more secluded spots in the bay.Still, an excellent time overall and one I will be recommending to my friends and family back home.


Huong Hai staff are the best staff!

"Huong Hai staff are the best staff!"

Huong Hai Sealife Cruise

We went for the full 3-day itinerary and had an amazing time. As you may be able to tell from the title of the review – this one was all about the staff. We had the best time chatting with them and learning about Vietnam and their lives in particular. Special mentions for Jackie, Michael, Nina, Lee and Sunny, but big love to the rest of you for making this trip extra special!The food was consistently great and obviously I can’t say a bad word about the scenery – incredible. We really enjoyed all of the activities that got us out into the boat – the swimming, beach visit, fishing village cave visit and kayaking. The day boat on the second day was particularly fun and gave us a great chance to get us away from the other boats.My only gripe is the same one that many others have about Halong Bay – the amount of rubbish in the water. The beach was quite heavily burdened with rubbish and I really think the government needs to look at this before it gets worse and stops would-be passengers from visiting.Other than that, no problems and a wonderful time had by all. Thanks Huong Hai, definitely earned a recommendation off us!

"Like a Hotel on the Water – Huong Hai Sealife"

Huong Hai Sealife Cruise

It is so worthwhile going to Halong Bay when in Vietnam and we didn’t want to miss it. Going with the Huong Hai Sealife was a wonderful experience and we consider ourselves lucky for ending up on a ship with such amazing accommodations, staff, amenities and food. We had a comfortable and cosy transfer to the bay in a minivan, as well as a stop halfway to stretch the old pegs. We met the cruise and team managers Jacky Pham and Mr. Viet, who introduced the rest of the crew to us. There was some great kayaking and swimming to be done, but we skipped the on board activities in favour of relaxing in our Captain View cabin.The weather was fantastic and we spent a lot of time lying on the bed watching the view through the window in the cabin. We had numerous great meals, including a crazy 9-course set lunch on day 2. The staff were very impressive during the meal times, as this is really when they had to put a shift in to make sure everything went smoothly – which it always did. Very impressive performances by the staff who played in the after dinner concert – including Ms. Huyen (Sunny), who has a real set of lungs on her!We all agreed that the Huong Hai Sealife cruise was the best-looking ship in the bay. We had a great time overall and I feel a lot more positive about cruises than I did before we left!


Just Lovely – Thanks Huong Hai Sealife!


"Just Lovely – Thanks Huong Hai Sealife!"

Huong Hai Sealife Cruise

We jumped on the Huong Hai Sealife boat for 2 days and had a really great time. Our bathroom came with a jacuzzi bathroom, which added to the feeling of luxury quite a lot. The rest of the room was also very nice.Clean and comfortable accommodation all throughout the ship, and a wonderful team of staff who run it with energy and vigour. Special mentions for Sunny, Jackie and Viet who were especially brilliant, but I really loved all of the crew who dealt with us!I was a little worried about my vegetarianism getting in the way of a tasty meal, but they had made me some separate food especially, which was lovely! I’m not much of a fan of fully-planned group itineraries but there’s no other way to see Halong Bay, so I relented in the end, and I’m so glad I did! The activities are a lot of fun, especially the kayaking in the peaceful bay. Amazing.We’d never heard of Huong Hai Sealife before booking but are very happy with the decision we made! This is the only cruise company you need to visit Halong Bay.
