After looking some options for Halong Bay Cruises, we chose Scarlet Pearl Cruises and agreed that this was the cruise for our trip to Halong Bay. It was not disappointed, it was truly hassle- free experience. We were picked up by a professional driver at Hai Phong Airport and took the transfer to the international port where we were welcomed by the staff of Scarlet Pearl Cruise who handed us the itinerary of the cruise and water bottles. We took a transfer with a small boat to the main cruise – Scarlet Pearl Cruise. Our first impression were the rose petals when we board the cruise. We were guided to the dinning room where we have very delicious lunch with beautiful view of Halong Bay. Biking in Cat Ba Island to Viet Hai Village was interesting with scenic route. We met the local people and learn about their life there. We returned to the cruise and Chris show us how to make the traditional Vietnamese spring rolls. In the evening we had very nice dinner and had very interesting chatting with friends and enjoyed the squid fishing. The Tai Chi on boat was so amazing before the breakfast and we did the kayaking trip around the bay. There was option for the people did not want to do kayaking as they could do the sampan boat through the cave around Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay. We were lucky to see a family of Voots, an endanger species of the money family native to Halong Bay. We return to the port and took the transfer to the airport but the flight was delayed but the changed the transport schedule to make sure we had a good experience. Thank you so much Scarlet Pearl. WE couldn’t be any happier choosing you as our cruiseline.
The boat is very comfortable with large room. It is outstanding with 360 – degree sea view. Scarlet Pearl Cruise activities are fantastic. The lunch and dinner were so luxurious and tasty as we expected. We truly enjoy our vacation there by joining the kayaking and fishing. There were many services on board like gym, restuarants, etc. Sitting on boat and watching the stunning sunset in Halong Bay was so fantastic and I like that feeling. How beautiful it was and I recommend it to all of you and my friends. I hope to come back again and I will chose Scarlet Pearl again.
I have been traveling my whole life, at least once or twice per year. However, Scarlet Pearl Cruise this time is the best trip I have ever been. The cabin was super clean but the staff truly amazes me. They are skillful and helpful every time from check-in to the late check-out and they were trying the best to help us without asking it. I like the food and the drinks at the lounge. The Scarlet Pearl Cruise also has very airy terrace where I really enjoyed the clean and beautiful blue sky from the most beautiful place of Halong Bay. The moment I spent here were so worthy from the quality of the services to the kindness of staffs. It is not a cheap cruise but it is very good value for money. I really recommend that cruise for anyone.
We book this cruise through a hotel in Hanoi. It is a part of Hanoi stay and cruise package that was offer. We stay in La Siesta Hotel in Hanoi and Scarlet Pearl Cruise for 3 day 2 night. After this trip I recommend anyone visiting Halong Bay to stay for 3 days 2 night so you have more time for relaxing and you can enjoy Halong Bay scenery more. The drive from Hanoi to the pier is about 3 hour so it is better to do the trip longer. The boat is very new and the staffs are very friendly, the rooms are very modern and the beds are very clean. The only bad thing is the wifi is not so good so do not expect much for the wifi when you are on the cruise because the signal is not so good. The meals on Scarlet Pearl is very good for the price we paid. The only complaints is the weather is not so good in December because there is no sun and the temperature somewhat was down to 18C. I think it is better to visit Halong Bay in Oct/November when it is warmer. Thank you Scarlet Pearl for a great trip.
We had great time from the moments we got into the boat. Amazing hospitable welcome from the crews, especially Anna and Phillip. The cabin was spacious and nice with a private balcony. The food for lunch, dinner, breakfast and brunch on the next day all are excellent. Thank you for all. We will back soon.
This was my second time to visit Halong Bay. I had something new with Scarlet Pearl in a new area called Lan Ha Bay. I was contacting directly with Tho. He was very helpful and organized to contact with me by Whatsapp and Email to confirm. I joined 3 days 2 nights itinerary and Onyx Cabin. We had an extra outdoor space, very private and enjoyable. Being picked up by a comfortable car from Hanoi, then on route via speedboat to the large boat. We were all welcomed by the crews, followed by a delicious lunch. It was amazed that we had been upgraded to President Suite – everything was perfect! Thank you so much for Mr. Thor’s help! We also had an offer for massage services and cocktails, and special private dinner in the private deck. On the second day, we had been heading out to a private catamaran to visit further area, swim and kayak there. We had collected fresh pipis from the beach and the chief helped us to prepare delicious dishes. To sum up, the foods were in fine quality. New cruise and new facilities. The crews were friendly and helpful. Halong Bay is so beautiful and we had unforgettable memories there.
Everything here was perfect from beginning to end. All were more than our expectation once we had been recommended from our friends. Before joining Scarlet Pearl, I had thought that 3 days in Lan Ha Bay would be so boring. But no, it was amazing and unforgettable. On the 2nd day, the staff took us to a small boat – very nice and we had an opportunity to explore further parts of Lan Ha Bay. Lunch on the small boat was delicious. Facilities on the cruise were new and high-qualitied. The services were all taken care by the staff. One more highlight is that we can have chances to try different types of food including Vietnamese food and Western food. Thank you so much for Scarlet Pearl. I will come back, and hope to see you soon.
We had booked 3 days 2 nights with Scarlet Pearl. The boat was nice. Our room was Golden Pearl on the 2nd floor. It was spacious and very comfortable, also had a balcony. The thing I liked most was the staff. They are all helpful and kind. Anna and Phillip and all crews made our days fun and remarkable. One thing to know is that 3 days 2 nights is enough to enjoy everything in Lan Ha Bay, 1 night only is not enough T_T All activities – eating, cooking class, sightseeing outside of the boat, kayaking,… - made you busy. You might need some times to relax on the sundeck, Jacuzzi, and couple of hours for massage. All were great. Dinner was good. You can buy some beer or a bottle of wine then enjoy for the dinner time or your whole stay there. Not too expensive.
Wow! We had been on the best trip of my life, to Vietnam. So much thing to see and do there, and we had joined to cruise with Scarlet Pearl – really luxury cruise with my fiancée. Thank you to all crews who took care of everything on the cruise, especially Anna and Phillip, and someone helped us get amazing pictures of our proposal. I couldn’t thought of any better place to say “YES, I DO”. The views were amazing. The decoration arrangement were amazing, too. My fiancée and crews had arranged it so well. The pictures could not express how romantic and perfect it was on that day… All crews are the nicest people we met during the time we were in Vietnam. Anna and Phillip will take care you from Day 1 when you arrive, and surely till Day 2 or Day 3 when you return to the port. We had been enjoyable all activities during 3 days 2 nights here. Once again, we would like to wish the team of Scarlet Pearl Cruise all the best. We love all, and we will come back soon.
What a beautiful cruise! We really enjoyed our time with Scarlet Pearl Cruise. The crews were all professional and hospitable. The cabin was nice, large, and clean. We had a cabin decorated for couples. Much appreciated. The breakfast, lunch, dinner were delicious, but I wanted it to be more heat. We also loved all activities to do kayaking, swim and visit the local village. This is my first choice to cruise over Halong Bay. I will surely back to Vietnam some days.
