"Paradise on Halong Bay!"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

We have 3 days on Paradise Elegance Cruise and all worth it. All the time was accurate as mentioned. The crew made my trip enjoyable and memorialized with their friendliness and helps. We also love the facilities in our cabin and all the meals included. Highly recommend the spa, so relaxing. Thank you also, Adrian, for making our trip memorable.

"Amazing Cruise and Amazing experience!"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

First time go to one of 7 Wonders of the world, I choose Paradise Elegance and I thought it will be nothing different from others.. since I actually proceed that. The scenery, especially the sunset, was breathtaking, and it’s matched with a 5-star cruise!! Everything was deserved what I paid, services, staff, food and all the activities (especially kayaking, must try). Now I can say that it’s the highlight of my Vietnam tour. Like its name, Elegance!

"Amazing Cruise and Amazing experience!"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

2 days onboard with Paradise Elegance Cruise was appreciated. Everything was exceptional! From the lovely staff, awesome dinner to farewell services. Our room was very clean and comfortable, I love most the balcony, and it’s large and private so I can enjoy the outstanding sights of Halong Bay. Thanks to Rachel, the cruise manager for her help. She spoke english very smooth and the staff very sweet, they always there when I need. I wish the cruise will always be good and better. Thank you Paradise Elegance Cruise!

"5 Stars in Paradise Elegance Cruise"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

I have nothing but good words to say about the Paradise cruise. From the very first second on the boat, we were looked after and pampered until we got off it the next day. Cruise manager Ronald and his staff did a really excellent job at making is feel at home, and we were very impressed with the lengths to which they’d go to help their passengers. The boat is a very nice and modern vessel with great cabins and a beautiful area on top with an open sky. The dining room was gorgeously decorated and was the place where we ate 5 star cuisine for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. The excursions were really great and gave us a chance to see more of the bay by kayaking and walking through a cave etc. Pick up and drop off were almost exactly when they said they would be, which is remarkable in a place with such unpredictable traffic as Vietnam! Very professional overall, and a company I would personally recommend.

"Paradise in Paradise"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

We have fairly expensive tastes when we travel and I have to say that they were met perfectly by the Paradise Elegance. We did the two night itinerary and woke up to two gorgeous sunsets rising behind the mountains – I’ll never forget those moments.The cabins on the boat were very special. They were spacious and had many decadent amenities like robes and slippers, with some high quality bedding as well! We made a lot of use of the balcony here. We were seriously impressed by the food, which was delicious and numerous by small cruise standards. The French press coffee was really nice!Some small improvements I think Paradise could make – the service was a little slow and I would have preferred some kind of maid service while we were out on excursions.Ronald, however, made up for that. He was an exceptional cruise manager and looked after us very well. The crew in general were superb, other than being a little slow at meal times as previously mentioned.I know this sounds like I’m being paid to write this, but I honestly do think this is a really magical cruise. Everything amazing and we couldn’t have asked for much more. Good work Paradise!

"Paradise - Excellent Stuff!"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

What a wonderful honeymoon it was for us aboard the Paradise Elegant Cruise. We had Emily as our cruise manager and she was constantly making us smile for the rest of the cruise. Inside was a masterclass of design. Everything just worked perfectly together, especially in our cabin. They made our honeymoon so special by leaving roses on the bed in the shape of a heart and then providing us with a beautiful cake as well. So nice! The next day, we had a romantic dinner with wine and flowers on the top deck in just each other’s company . Big thank you for the staff for all of their efforts and hard work, it’s very much appreciated!

"Really Beautiful! Paradise Cruise and Boat"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

Fantastic experience for our group of four to be on the Paradise Elegance for 3 days and 2 nights. Cabins had powerful air con as well as a balcony and some comfortable bedding. We had a 5-course lunch when we arrived, which we weren’t expecting. It was a fantastic indicator of things to come as it was the same kind of quality that we would expect from a 5 star restaurant. If this couldn’t get better, it was served to us by the most delightful staff, who always made us smile throughout the 3 days.Great experience with the kayaking, caves, islands, fishing villages etc. Lots of time for relaxing as well both on and off the boat. The only thing we were slightly puzzled about was the stop to the pearl farm, which is clearly just a ploy to get us to buy a $35,000 necklace. I have no idea about the sort of people who carry that kind of money to Halong Bay, and the kind of people willing to spend that much, but I’m sure that when they finally make that sale, the pearl farmers can retire happily – gotta keep trying!A really special cruise overall. Just about 20 people on the boat which made it feel more social. Sunset on the decks over the two nights were just magical. What an experience.

"More than we Usually Pay but Worth it for the Paradise Elegance!"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

I met a couple on my travels who suggested Halong Bay, so I started looking at companies to go with. The hotel suggested the Paradise Elegance and I didn’t regret the decision!I was told to be in the lobby for pick-up at 7.30am – the driver turned up at 7.28am and we were off. The van is very comfortable and had wifi and air conditioning.I bought the golden package at lunch which gives you a better list of alcohol and coffee as well as a massage. The food was brilliant.We did a couple of excursions on that day – kayaking and caving – all of which were lots of fun. We had a cooking class at sunset and the next day we went onto the island for a hike to the top.The staff were really great with me and always made the effort to come and talk to me. Grace and Mai were especially lovely.Wonderful experience overall. You should definitely try it out!

"What a Honeymoon – Wow!"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

We chose the Paradise Elegance for our Honeymoon and couldn’t have had it any better!*Location:We got the bus from our hotel in Hanoi to Tuan Chau Harbour, about 3.5 hours away. The ride was very comfortable and the check in procedure when we got to the lounge was smooth. * FacilitiesVery nice cruise with lots of different rooms and beautiful cabins.* StaffPerfect English spoken by the staff, who are all very nice and professional. Lily was particularly lovely and we had some nice chats over the course of the cruise. *FoodThe quality of the food is very good and presented in a very professional way*ActivitiesI can’t talk enough about the beautiful scenery – just amazing. And the kayaking that we did around it was so much fun. On board they do squid fishing and a cooking class, which are both great. Live music accompanies dinner.So the whole package overall. I’m very VERY glad we had our honeymoon on the Paradise and would recommend it to everyone who wants to go to Halong Bay.

"Insane Luxury – Thanks Mr Ronald and the Paradise Cruise!"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

We chose the Paradise after a bit of deliberating, but we very happy with what we ended up with! The boat was beautiful and the cabins were so spacious. We spent a lot of time on the sundeck so we didn’t really have a lot of time to spend in the cabin with its balcony, but it was nice to know they were they in case we decided to use them! The meals were really fantastic and the crew were a delight to hang out with. We ended up chatting a lot over the course of our cruise and were amazed by how friendly and funny they were. We had three activities – one was kayaking or taking a boat ride through a cave, one was hiking to the top of the island or chilling on the beach, and the final one was a visit to a cave. I have high recommendations for this tour based on the great itinerary, delicious food, wonderful cabins and friendly, attentive staff. The cruise manager Mr Ronald has done amazing things here, you should go and check it out for yourself! Do note that teenagers may sulk at the lack of reliable wifi, but we just encouraged them to get out and enjoy the bay, so they forgot about their phones pretty soon!

"The most Wonderful Accommodation in Paradise!"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

Our family of four went through Vietnam for two weeks, but the highlight of our trip was the Paradise Elegance. We booked for one night – I experience horrible motion sickness and thought the 2 night would be too much, but the ship was so steady that I easily could have stayed for longer. We had a little rain on the drive over, which was perfect as it cooled the weather down (we went in July). Every response I got via email was within 24 hours and they were always friendly and did their utmost to answer any queries I had.Pros: Fantastic boat in excellent condition – very clean and new. Excellent cabins - we paid a bit more for the decent balconies and they were well worth the price. Top quality service from a great crew of staff! The excursions were nice – especially the kayaking, which I would highly recommend. The spa room offered massages that were really nice,Con: Not really any cons. Drinks weren’t included in the price even though we knew that beforehand. The coffee was Western style instead of Vietnamese coffee, but that’s seriously all I can think of. What an amazing cruise!

"Great Family Trip on the Paradise Elegance"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

Me and my family of 2 adults and 2 teens went to Halong Bay for one night and absolutely loved the whole thing. It was just delightful from start to finish in the comfortable minivan that took is there and brought us back to our hotel in Hanoi. On board, the staff were incredibly well-mannered and professional in what they did. They brought us the most delicious food that even my teenaged boys enjoyed (almost as miraculous as Halong Bay). We had a great time doing the activities and especially loved the hike to the top of the hill, where you can see Halong Bay stretching for miles. Jimmy, the cruise manager, introduced us to Vietnamese rice wine after dinner and stayed up to chat with people even though he had a very early start the next day. I would definitely recommend the Paradise Elegance and I hope to be back myself some day soon.

"Big Thanks to Ronald on the Paradise Elegance!"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

We just came back from the overnight tour with the Paradise Elegance and I don’t think it could have gone any more perfectly. The boat was very beautiful both inside and out, and it looked even more magnificent against the backdrop of the mountains. We had some really tasty meals in the dining room and bought many reasonably-priced drinks at the bar. Our executive balcony cabin was just gorgeous, with comfortable bedding and a glorious balcony outside. The trips outside were really nice, especially the kayaking, and we came back to glorious food and entertainment in the piano bar – it felt like true luxury! The staff far exceeded our expectations – they were so fantastic and we’d like to give a special thanks to Ronald, the manager, for his excellent organisation with the itinerary and the team. Keep up the good work guys, you make trips like these so special for people!

"Beautiful Trip with Paradise Elegance!"

Paradise Elegance Cruise

Halong Bay should be an absolute definite when visiting Vietnam, and Paradise are really the cruise to go for in my experience. The Paradise Elegance II was not even operational for 1 year before we got on, so it was very new. We decided to pay a little extra and book a really nice cabin, so we went with the Captain’s View Terrace, which was absolutely sublime. We had an incredibly comfortable sail through the bay thanks to the crew, who really seemed to relish in the pride felt when helping others. It was the little touches that made the difference – the cold towel when arriving back on the boat from an excursion, the beaming smile you get every time you walk past a member of staff, the manager (Mr. Bean) remembering everyone’s name from the moment we checked in and delivering a brilliant, personable service. The food was also absolutely outstanding, as were many other aspects about this ship – but I implore you to discover those for yourself! I will never forget my time here, it was simply magical.
