Grand Pioneers Cruise on Ha Long bay

(4.5)
“This is a very nice boat with modern design. Staff are always smiling and trying as hard as possible. Meals are good or excellent. Our room is just lovely. Could have been even better if there’s like fun entertainment and such. Feels rushed to do the 1 night which is about 22 hours onboard but get to visit two caves so kinda nice.”

“nothing bad to say. Brand new beautiful cruise, service, staff, food but our 2 nights 3 days in an Ocean suite were affected by some noise (they say is the refueling ship). my suggestion is to ask about the position of the cabin first if you are concerned about that.”
