Ingeniously designed junk, Dragon Pearl 3, on 3 decks. Small but comfortable cabin. Exceptional food, also catered very well for the various likes/dislikes within our group. Really good wine menu! Spent the afternoon kayaking and cave exploring and the next morning visiting a floating village and pearl farm. Oh, and the scenery was pretty spectacular, too! Highly recommended.

Cruise was phenomenal, and worth every penny. The service crew was excellent and made sure that we were well taken care of and spoilt with such amazing food over our 3D2N cruise around Bai Tu Long bay. They especially went out of the way to make sure that the entire experience was comfortable, and brought us to many locations that seemed like a scene out of Jurassic park, with hardly any other boats around. It was an amazing experience and would highly recommend it. Would especially like to mention Tim, our tour guide, Cuong, our chef, and Bien, our bartender for giving us such a wonderful time!

3 day, 2 night Bai Tu Long Bay cruise - just excellent from start to finish. Highly professional (much better than our experience in the US with Norwegian and Carnival lines), small boat of only 20 passengers, fun activities, lovely cabin, and pretty good food. Our guide was knowledgable and accommodating, crew were all very kind and helpful. Highly recommended.

We had a fantastic experience during our 2 days 1 night tour in Halong Bay. We wanted to avoid the very touristic areas of Halong so we chose this junk that goes to Bai Tu Long Bay. The route was beautiful, the water was clean and the excursions (kayaking and visiting a fishing village were great. The boat is decorated with a lot of taste and is very cozy. The bedroom has lovely views and is again very cozy and has enough space. Our tour guide, Michael, was very attentive with the group, giving us excellent explanations at all times. The food was very good, thanks to the onboard chef Mr. Quiynh. A special mention to the food decoration and the chocolate cake he prepared for our wedding anniversary. Our waiter Mr. Henry was giving a quality service making sure we had anything we need. Really recommend Dragon Pearl Junk 3 to maximize your Halong visit.
