We booked the family room on 27Nov-28Nov for 2 day 1 night trip, the view was AWESOME, we had a private balcony! From enquiry to taking the cruise everything was a wonderful experience. My Quay attended to all my enquiries very promptly n provided me to all my questions very promptly . I m so impressed with the service of Paloma cruise. Our tour guide was Morning, he is so nice , speak good English and takes care of boy and my elderly mom.. very attentive and thoughtful. He is also very humorous and try to make us feel relax. Paloma also go the extra mile to arrange our special diet, and we are really grateful . High recommended.. will come back .. already missed Paloma so much, wished we had taken a 3 day 2 nights! Thank u, Paloma Cruise !!

Absolutely fantastic cruise. Can not recommend this highly enough! It was the highlight of our trip. The staff were wonderful, so friendly, welcoming, and always had our safety and comfort as a priority. Morning and Flower (our two guides) went out of their way to arrange anything we needed. The food on board was brilliant. The trips throughout were great too, we enjoyed kayaking and a cave visit and a fishing village trip. Really worth it! Great value. Thank you :)!!

What an amazing experience we had with Paloma Cruises. There staff were amazing, especially 'Morning'. He was the most hospitable, generous and attentive staff member on the cruise. The food was incredible and plentiful. The cocktails were delicious. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and restful. The activities were tons of fun and the sightseeing was mind-blowing! Two nights on board are a definite must. We were treated like royalty and would definitely recommend this cruise company to everyone.

Had an excellent 2-day cruise with Paloma Cruise. The staff were absolutely brilliant and absolutely made the cruise. Linh the bartender was brilliant and very funny, along with the rest of the staff, the were polite, courteous and very friendly. The activities were great, kayaking, visiting the cave and best of all the fishing village which was a brilliant experience. The cabins were perfect and clean. I would thoroughly recommend this trip and the company to anyone.

A very nice cruise with wonderful staff! We recommend to stay for 2 nights to get the full experience and to be able to swim in the beautiful bays! The rooms are very clean and spacious. The food is as well excellent, my mother and I didn’t eat meat and they catered perfectly to our wishes. We actually had the best food here from whole vietnam. The staff is also very kind, we especially enjoyed the happy hour with the bartender Mr Linh and our tourguide Mr (Mor)Ning!
