    I wouldn't call the boat we were on 4*,it had seen better days. We enjoyed the trip because of staff and other travellers made it fun.
    No swimming or cooking class offered. Our balcony was non existent
    Which was poor.Boat definitely not
    as advertised.

    Lucky was an amazing host for the entire journey from picking us up in Old Quarter Hanoi to dropping us off. The whole crew was so friendly and helpful the entire trip. We felt like we had the best boat in this section of Ha Long Bay. Wonderful middle and top decks for the whole group to hang out on. A very nice mix between traditional Vietnamese and western food. The tai chi on the deck was a nice way to start the day. The kayaking was beautiful - definitely don’t miss that experience! I want to go back for a two night stay!

    Enjoyable trip. The boat was very comfortable and clean. The food served was very nice - particularly the evening dinner. The kayaking and cave tours ere very good. The only slight disappointments were the squid fishing this was just a bamboo rod left at the boarding doorway and the Tai Chi class 15 mins with a guy in a white silk suit who never spoke one word to us - just put some oriental music on his phone and we guessed we should just follow him?? I wouldnt get up extra early to attend this class. A shame really as I was looking forward to this and other boats in the vicinity seemed to be getting a much longer,more informed session. Overall not too bad but make sure you shop around as booking through Viator seemed to be an expensive option!

    We had a wonderful time recently onboard a two day/one night cruise exploring Halong Bay. We had an amazing time and the scenery is certainly breathtaking. Food on board is really delicious and the staff are very attentive. Spring Roll cooking class was terrific. We would most certainly book this cruise again if in Hanoi, but would likely book an extra night or two to stretch it out and get to enjoy more time in this lovely region. The room with a sea view and ensuite was gorgeous and we loved waking up with an amazing view of Halong Bay. It really was a fabulous interlude in our travels in Asia. Even the 4 hour bus trip to/from Hanoi provided some lovely scenery and an interesting glimpse at areas outside of Hanoi. It was really nice meeting the other travellers onboard from all around the world, and we all had a great time with a lot of laughs. We absolutely loved it!!

    Amazing Luxury Cruise 4 in Ha long bay .I recently did the 2 day 1 night cruise on Viola and loved every minute. Ha Long Bay is stunning and a must-see in Vietnam. The Viola was definitely one of the prettiest cruisers on the bay and I'm sure we had the best staff ensuring everyone had a wonderful time. The food was fantastic, the sights were beautiful, the rooms were clean and very comfortable. The guides were all brilliant but the cheeriest, happiest 'lovely tour guide at this cruise ' is one in a million and I missed his lovely smiley face when we left! If he's your tour guide your time with Viola will be full of laughs and fun! Highly recommended Viola cruise!
