My friends and I took the Scarlet Pearl cruises to celebrate our friendship. Firstly I was impressed by the professional of the service of this cruise. I have experienced golden room, what I can say is perfect the room is very clean with breath-taking view of Lan Ha Bay. I think when you should try golden room or Scarlet Pearl room. The most important things that I like most is FRIENDLY cruise. all staff was attentive and helpful especially the general manager. we have unforgettable time at Scarlet Pearl cruise. highly recommend this cruise for all.

I can’t say enough great things about our 3 day, 2 night stay on the Scarlet Pearl. The cruise transport picked us up on time at our hotel in Hanoi in a very comfortable mini bus with arm chair type seats and a professional driver. We were met at the port building by Scarlet Pearl representatives and taken to our transfer boat. All guests were greeted on board by the crew and a delicious multi-course lunch. After lunch, there were options to transfer to visit a local school, kayak or swim from the ship, or simply remain on board to use the facilities. There was a happy hour from 5:30pm to 7:00pm, with cookery demonstration as an option. This was followed by a delicious a la carte dinner. After breakfast on the second day, we were taken on a small catamaran for a 6 hour trip. The trip involved beautiful scenic cruising, with some stops for kayaking and swimming. The chef came along and prepared a fantastic cooked lunch for everyone on the trip. After returning to the ship, there was time to relax before happy hour and another a la carte dinner. After breakfast on the third day, we were taken to a local boat where a guide rowed us through a cave to a hidden lagoon where the view was breathtaking. Our local guide spotted a Cat Ba Langur monkey on the cliffs and gave everyone a chance to take photos. There are less than 70 of these creatures alive. After we returned to the ship, we were served a brunch before being ferried back to the port. Again we were met by the driver and transported back to our hotel in Hanoi by luxury mini bus. We took a Gold class cabin, which was amazing. The room facilities, incredible panoramic wall to wall and floor to ceiling view and attention to detail was phenomenal. All of the staff on board were wonderful and strived to enhance your stay. The chef went to extraordinary lengths to suit my food allergies. The assistant cruise director Anna was an absolute gem and worked tirelessly with a beaming smile to coordinate every guest’s schedule. She is the pearl within The Scarlet Pearl. Our trip on the Scarlet Pearl was the highlight of our 2 week Asian holiday.

A very modern cruise in Halong Bay than stood up among all other cruises in Halong bay ! We stay on the cruise for a 3D2N , the food is wonderful as they are serve in ala-carte menu, you can order more if you can eat all. Both the reception Chris and Anna were friendly and speak good English ! On the second day, we board onto the catamaran to continue explore the quite area in Lan Ha Bay, lunch was serve on the catamaran. The room is modern and it is clean, house keeping twice a day on our room. Strongly recommend for tourist visiting Halong Bay. The cruise only had 26 rooms, do book early to avoid disappointment.
