Had the most amazing time in this short but lovely cruise. We were transported from Old Hanoi City by a private and quite comfortable charter (also had wifi) to Ha Long Bay. Made an unexpected pit stop at a pearl factory which we appreciated mostly for stretching, bathroom and coffee break but you can peruse and buy merchandise as well. Taken to the Port where we were received by very welcoming staff and shortly boarded our vessel. As we were celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary we chose the luxury suite with spa bath and were by no means disappointed. Room was quite spacious for the size of the boat, incredibly comfortable and well-appointed. We were escorted upstairs for further instructions describing a comprehensive itinerary of activities on-board. The cruise itself is short but they have all activities down to clockwork. This makes it quite easy to enjoy all the sights at Ha Long (i.e caves, beaches, hiking, kayaking) for just the right amount of time. Food options were also plentiful and included Vietnamese favorites (can also enjoy a cooking demonstration as part of your itinerary). All in all, for the amount paid and time allotted for this cruise, we are exceptionally pleased with everything we got to experience and the amazing service from Syrena Cruises.

Syrena cruises was a pleasure to travel with in ha long bay. We did a 3 day 2 night cruise which was very relaxing and absolutely one of the most beautiful places ever. Oscar, the cruise manager was a pleasure to deal with, and provided customised services with a personal touch. Would throughly recommend him and his crew.
We've just got back from the 2 day Syrena 2 cruise and we loved every minute of it! A huge thanks go to ALL the staff who were very attentive and kind. The boat was clean and the rooms were very comfortable. The trips were breathtaking and worth the 'hike' to the top!!!! We thoroughly recommend this trip and would definitely go again. Thank you Syrena 2, you're a credit to your company. Room 209! Helen and Ian Xxxx
Syrena boats are well maintained, the cabins and toilets are small but clean and comfortable, the food is good with sufficient variety. the lounge and upper deck are great for larger groups and relaxing, the hotel pick ups are professionally managed, all in all a good Cruise Company. It is the whole two day - one night cruise that feels rushed. One is on the boat for only about 22 hours- for which one has to commute in a bus for a total of 7 hours, wait on the boat station for another 1 hour. And then all the activities one after another feel very rushed and barely gives time on the boat itself. The visit to Sung Sot cave was spectacular and a total must do, but the visit to Ti Top island is totally avoidable, by the time we came back it was near dark, would have been better to just relax on the boat, watch the sun set on the spectacular Halong bay. The morning boat and cave visit also felt like a repitition of Tam quoc visit, but most people enjoyed it.
We very much enjoyed our two day cruise with Syrena. Their van pick-up and ride was great, on-time and very good driving, well worth the cost. Our Cruise director, Alice, made the entire trip very special. She was always "two steps" ahead of everything and definitely knows her job and provides superb customer service. While the cabins are somewhat small, the bathroom and shower area was nice. We especially enjoyed spending time on the outside deck that is adjacent to the suite. To say the least, the food was VERY GOOD. Don't worry about them running out of the good stuff, they are very experienced and the refills just kept on coming! I found the upper deck to be very enjoyable. It's a great vantage point for photos and trust me, the scenery just keeps getting better around every island. We've already convinced 3 other couple to book with Syrena, for sure there will be more!
