Amazing cruise! We loved our time on Doris Cruise! We spent two nights, three days on the boat and were very happy we did. The two night itinerary gives you an opportunity to bike in Cat Ba island which was a lot of fun! It wasn't warm enough in January to go swimming, but this would have been really fun if were able to. The food was food - very large spread with a mix of Vietnamese and western food. Only drawback with this is that I would have preferred more local food. However, it is a minor detail. My fiance has a nut allergy and they were amazing accommodating it. The staff was incredible! Manager Bruce went out of his way to make sure our stay was special, even giving us a special "congratulations" gift. The staff, specifically Hero, was amazing with helping us navigate our allergies and giving us tips for our stay in Vietnam. We also loved spending the day biking around Cat Ba island, drinking snake wine, and hearing stories from our amazing tour guide Tom (Tom Cruise haha). The time was filled with so many wonderful memories! Finally the facilities were wonderful. The rooms were big and the private balconies were a major highlight. Everything was brand new! I also really enjoyed the massage service. Overall, would recommend highly as a Halong Bay Cruise!!

Absolutely great 2 day 1 night cruise. What an amazing way to cruise Halong bay. Our junior suite was beautiful, lovely big comfortable bed, big bathtub with a window to see the bay. We done some kayaking which was great fun, and we really enjoyed the cooking class. The food onboard was delicious, and plenty of it! They really went out if their way to cater for my vegetarian wife. Would like to give our waiter Hiro (not sure how to spell it) a special mention as he was brilliant, his service was excellent and was really nice to chat to. Would definitely recommend.

This was a major highlight of our trip to Vietnam. The staff was excellent! The trip and view was amazing!! The food was surprisingly great as well! If your looking for a cruise that will not disappoint then Doris is who you should book with. The cruise manager Bruce and guide Ming were excellent and deserve a lot of credit for making the cruise the experience it was.

Fantastic Experience. We took a two day one night trip with Doris Cruise. The reception, briefing by Justin and the coordination by Bruce Panda of the complete visit was fantastic. Our room was excuisite, the view out of this world and the food selection delicious. The activities planned by the cruise were off the beaten track and enjoyable. I have no hesitation in recommending the cruise
