"Incredible – Thanks Paradise!"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

Such a great time on the 2 day package with Paradise Cruise. We were treated to a welcome dance by the crew and then served perfectly by them for the rest of our time there. The vegetarian food available is an absolute feast, so don’t worry if you have any special diets – they have you covered! For me, they made vegetarian noodles and western food separate from what everyone else had. Beautiful cabins which were comfortale and had a very functional en suite. Expertly planned itinerary, with plenty of time for relaxing and activities – kayaking, caving, beaching etc. I couldn’t speak any higher of the Paradise Cruise and would encourage everyone to try them at least once in their lives!

"Wonderful Hospitality to be found at Paradise!"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

It’s my first time cruising on the Paradise but I don‘t think it will be the last! The manager, Chad, and his fabulous crew made us feel so welcome the whole time. They were a great family to join for two days and they were always welcoming and inclusive of everyone on the cruise. I celebrated my birthday on board and the crew brought me out a cake and sang happy birthday to me. Incredible customer service! Aside from the crew, the excursion out into the bay were amazing. We went kayaking and to the caves and had a generally great time overall. The ambience on the boat was perfect, not too many people and not too few. I would love to return for the 3 day itinerary next time.

"True Luxury on the Paradise Luxury"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

Incredible from start to finish with the Paradise Luxury Cruise. Very comfortable transport from Hanoi on a very clean and luxurious bus. You get a warm welcome from the cruise and the first look at your cabin when you check in. We had a buffet lunch which was perfect, lots of different styles of Vietnamese and Western cuisine. Dinner was very tasty and a la carte.Our cruise manager made us laugh a lot while she was showing us around the activities. In fact, we were impressed by all the staff, managed breilliantly by Mr. Jimmy, the manager with a very sweet smile and a willingness to help us at all times. Thanks guys!

"Cruising with Paradise"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

Thanks to Ryan from the start here. Such a comfortable passage through Halong Bay. The cabins were a great starting point to begin the adventures for the day – so beautiful and spacious. We had some good excursions off the boat and some good activities on it – we especially liked the kayaking and the cooking class (we’ll be preparing those spring rolls at home!)The food was outstanding and there was so much of it. This cruise has a big of a hefty price tag but I’d say it was 100% worth it – I didn’t even think about the cost once while I was there, I was too busy being pampered! Especially at the spa, which was a reasonably priced extra. A wonderful cruise in the end. Thanks to Ryan and everyone else on board!

"Fabulous Experience with Paradise in Halong Bay"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

Beautiful, gorgeous ship. It had everything inside. Great décor and great cabins with lovely balconies. Fantastic food served to us by the best staff! So nice and caring. They organised the excursions perfectly so that we were never bored. We were never bored or disappointed the whole time we were there. Go for the all-inclusive plan if you want to make the most use of the drinks and massage package that comes with it. Our butler was called Hayden and he was superb. He managed his commitments perfectly and was very kind, knowledgeable and professional with us. A great companion to have on the trip!Thanks Paradise for the wonderful time!

"The most perfect weekend on the Paradise Luxury!"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

Boarding was smooth and very welcoming. We were given the itinerary, which included kayaking, hiking, a visit to a cave etc. so we were never bored! Great view with the kind of landscape we have never seen before. The food and the wine were all fantastic and the crew who served it didn’t put a foot wrong the entire time we were aboard the cruise.The massage was very welcome after a stressful couple of days travelling. Halong Bay is the perfect remedy for something like this and we disembarked as new people!We did the 1 night cruise but I would recommend the 2 night one as it gives you the chance to get deeper into the bay.

"Paradise Luxury - the Highlight of the Holiday"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

Unforgettable time on the Paradise Luxury. We had a great sail through Halong Bay.Great food for vegetarians and the kind of service you’d expect of a 5* hotel.It’s a really full day on the day you arrive but we didn’t feel rushed at any point. We did kayaking and visited a cave. You can opt out of the activities at any point and have afternoon tea on the deck instead. Cooking class and dinner were also great – you can even dress up for dinner which is really cool! There’s a film after this and you can choose to do whatever you want.There’s a tai chi session and breakfast to start the day off right. We made sure to engage in all of the activities, even the really early ones.Lots of attention to detail paid by cruise manager Derick and his crew. They served us so well on our trip, including Rachel and Rebecca – two of the crew with outstanding service. Thank you girls!

"Fantastic in Every Way"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

All of the crew were fantastic with us and didn’t let us have anything other than 100% satisfaction the whole time we were on the cruise. We had two very cute and lovely waiters (sorry guys, I’ve forgotten your names!)Emily is a genuinely nice person. Even after being very kind throughout the cruise, she helped me contact my friends who were arriving to Halong, long after the cruise had already finished and she had no obligation to help me anymore, after finished this journey, she still accompanied us and helped us to contact my friends until they showed up. Our guide Stefanie was really great and had lots of information to tell us about the places that we were. She was exactly like our big sister while we were on the cruise. Thank you so much to everyone! It was a memorable trip because of you and your hard work!

"Paradise on the Paradise"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

Cruise manager Grace was a very relaxing presence on the Paradise Luxury Cruise. She was the perfect person to have running a ship and she really made it special for us. We did the one night trip and thought it was good for seeing the highlights of the bay. We had a private transfer from our hotel in Hanoi, which was very efficient. Then we enjoyed some kayaking that was very well planned. The food, staff, activities and the cruise overall is fantastic and you will be lucky if you have Grace running the ship.I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone.

"An Outstanding Trip with Paradise"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

It’s a little bit more expensive that what me and my friend usually pay for stuff, but after working hard, we decided to treat ourselves with the Paradise Luxury, and wow, were we treated!The cabin was incredible and had some awesome views of the bay. The en suite bathroom was very well equipped.The staff were always there for you when you needed them. Really amazing service and very well-organised itinerary.We were so surprised by the quality of the food, we weren’t expecting it to be that conclusive!Such a great time swimming, kayaking and going to the cave.Special thanks to Ms Mai, who looked after me when my stomach was in pain by giving me a traditional ginger tea, which seemed to do the trick! A memorable time and an experience that I would definitely recommend to you all.

"Charming Crew and Paradise Cruise!"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

Very very pleased with how this cruise went in the end! The absolute best part was staring at the beautiful views from the balcony or the sundeck, but that was just one piece. The ship that carried us through was complete luxury and had the best amenities. It was very tidy and had a very luxurious air about it. We were so impressed by the crew, especially Emily and Windy, both of whom were gentle, kind and caring but knew their boundaries and gave me and my husband time to enjoy the company of each other. We are both vegetarians but this was not a problem – we even had some great vegetarian dishes recommended by Windy. Beautiful experience all round thanks to everyone involved.

"A Great Time to be had with the Paradise Luxury Cruise!"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

Had a wonderful 3 day cruise with the Paradise Luxury! We had the perfect boat with perfect cabins. I don’t know about the others, but ours had a little balcony out the front where we could chill and watch the bay from up close. Great catering to individual diets at mealtimes – I’m a vegetarian and this wasn’t a problem at all. The food was all delicious and the staff that served it to us were simply lovely – very accommodating and helpful but not constantly pressing you into unwanted conversation. The excursions were so much fun – especially the swimming and the visit to the cave. I sincerely have nothing but positive words for the Paradise Luxury Cruise – it was everything I wanted and more. Kudos to the Ryan, the manager, for such an excellently run cruise. Big recommendations!

"The Paradise Cruise – The Absolute Best"

Paradise Luxury Cruise

Last year we went on the Paradise Cruise and have had no experience before or since that compares! I originally came from the USA to Vietnam to meet up with some friends. We deliberated for a while on which cruise to pick, but are very glad that we settled on the Paradise Luxury.I flew into Hanoi and got an immediate transfer from the airport to Halong Bay, about 3 hours away. I met my friends there and after checking in, we were shown onto the boat and that’s when it felt like our vacation was underway. Prepare to be utterly spoiled from this point onwards. They took all of our luggage for us and wouldn’t let us do anything remotely active if they could do it for us – amazing service! We opted for the 2 day tour because we thought that 3 days would be too much, as there’s not that much to do other that relaxing and watching the scenery. We realised after we boarded how full the itinerary really is – there’s kayaks, caves, islands, fishing – and we sort of regretted not booking the 3 day version after that. Incredible food – it’s basically unlimited and is so, so tasty as well. You can make some reasonable orders off-menu and if the chefs can make it with what they have, they will. Drinks aren’t included in the price but are not priced too high.I had a very nice suite for the cabin. It had a huge balcony was facing the front so I had some of the best views. The ensuite bathroom had a bathtub and a large window beside it, which just added to the luxury! As far as the staff go, Ronald and Jimmy were incredible managers – both so sweet and caring all the time. They were constantly checking if we were happy on board or if there was anything to do that could make them happier.I recommend this to everyone, I’m certainly coming back myself!
