Terrific Luxury Cruise on Halong Bay

Awesome luxury cruise on Halong Bay. Everything was perfect. The Paloma Suite was definitely worth it, with the spacious balcony at the front of the boat. The food was good, itinerary was fun, crew was friendly. The WiFi was no bueno, so that was only downside if you need it. We stayed 1 night/2day, could easily have stayed an extra night for 2 total.

We had an incredible stay with Paloma. The on board manager and staff were lovely. We loved the activities. We’re not usually the cruisin’ type so this was the fanciest place we stayed overnight. I really could have gone for two days if I had the time and the money. My only gripe was that all the drinks were in American dollars so I had to do a mental conversion twice in my head before paying. Minor i suppose but the cruise is really geared towards American tourists. Halong Bay is a must see and Paloma really made it lovely cruising to the quieter areas. Thanks so much to all the crew!

    Highly recommend this cruise.

    We enjoyed our stay overnight in Paloma cruise. Our tour guide is very organised and responsible. All other staff in the cruise are very nice and friendly. The view of Halong Bay was so amazing, we really hope that we can stay one more night.
