Cruise boat: excellent quality, great views from the top deck, with plenty of good spaces to hangout Staff service: excellent, English was good, staff were friendly and funny. Good karaoke singers too Activities: Surprising Cave was enormous (which was good because it could fit the hordes of tourists). Other activities were a little rushed: only got 40 mins of kayaking around a small enclosed area, 30 mins to quickly ascent and descend Ti Top Island and 30 mins for a quick dip in the water. Poor weather meant we ended up catching a 4 hour bus (instead of a ferry) to Cat Ba Island and we arrived at dark, giving us little time and light to do anything meaningful, other than hire some bikes (cheap prices though) to cycle around the small town at dark. Didn't really get to enjoy the beaches or a cycle to the nearby village before it was time to go. The hotel at Cat Ba Island was nothing special, didn't have a view The 2 hour ferry out from Cat Ba Island the next morning was stunning though... Food: PLENTIFUL. Tasted good and was more than enough Overall: Time on the cruise ship going through Ha Long Bay was great thanks to the ship, the crew and the views. But activities themselves were a bit rushed, and lacking in quantity. 4/5 stars

The schedule for activities and transport on the Apricot Cruise were extremely well organised so that there was minimal time waiting around or being wasted. The cabins could have been cleaner but they were appropriate for the affordable cost. The meals were arranged so that there was a plate of rice and plates of dishes to be shared between a table of six. There was a range of foods and fruits that we could try for the first time. The main highlight of the cruise was our guide, Eric, who was extremely friendly and clearly had lots of knowledge about Ha Long Bay and its history. It was good to listen to a local who knew what he was talking about. He also kindly offered to take pictures for my group whilst doing the different activities (exploring caves, walking to Titop Island, kayaking) which was an added bonus. He would constantly make sure that everyone in our tour group was having an enjoyable time. I would definitely recommend this tour to people back home who plan to visit Vietnam and wish Eric be commended for his hard work.

We travelled with a family of 8 pax (with elderly and young child) onboard. It was a pleasure to be onboard. Our English speaking guide Bingo was friendly and funny. He took good care of us. The crew also took note of our special diet requirements (vegan meal with no onion, garlic, and no pork). The iternary planned was enjoyable for my family members too.
