I opted for 2 day 1 night to optimise the chance of having good visibility, as the bay has a reputation for being cloudy or misty, and we had fabulous weather for both days. The viewing from the boat is great, starting with a beautifully set dining table looking out over the bay. The staff were excellent, as was the... More

Staff are amazing, boat is fantastic, food is awesome, you are only on the boat for 23 hours. We opted for the balcony cabin, but you are only in the room to sleep, and you definitely aren't there to have a jacuzzi, save your money. This is definitely the best trip in the area and the staff are amazing and... More

We did an overnight cruise with Indochina Sails and had a great experience. The staff were fantastic, the rooms a good size with bathrooms a lot bigger than expected. Flip flops and robes were supplied along with all the various extras you'd expect in a hotel bathroom. Food was great, the drinks were pricey but our guide had warned us... More

Indochina Sails has a few different boats and we had the opportunity to cruise for 3 days and 2 nights with the biggest and newest of their fleet! It was indeed a very nice experience, comfortable and friendly. I highly recommend it. If you want a more quiet and exclusive cruise go for the Valentine options, which are their smaller... More

We have just done a one night cruise with Indochina Sails. The volume of mass tourism was off putting in Halong Bay but this is a world heritage sight and should not be missed. Service on the boat was excellent and staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating. We managed to do both the cave trip and swim... More

Booked as part of an Insider Journeys tour, our group of 12 had exclusive use of a boat that could have easily accommodated twice as many. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The accommodation puts many a cruise ship to shame while the food was reasonably good quality and plentiful. Drinks service was diligent, if at times a little... More

We chose Indochina Sails to take a look at Beautiful Halong Bay and didn't regret our choice. The smaller group size and excellent service were worth it.

We recently did the 2 day 1 night cruise with Indochina Sails in Ha Long Bay and I would definitely recommend it! The food was excellent and the staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating. It's obviously an incredibly beautiful natural setting and this was such a perfect way to relax and experience it. Definitely a bit pricey and a bit... More

I was a little skeptical at first but glad we went for the top level cruise. First the positives: staff were extremely friendly and eager to please. Service was a highlight. Cabin was nice a cruise ship. The bathroom fixtures were nice. I like that we were given bottles of water each time we did an excursion. That is a... More

Did the 2 day/1 night trip on Indochina Sails. From the moment we stepped on board the boat we had a sumptuous lunch whilst making our way out to Halong Bay which was roughly around 40 minutes from the mainland. Our cabins were beautiful and spacious with plenty of room to move, airconditioning, your own balcony and massive bathroom with... More
