About Dragon Pearl Junks

Dragon Pearl Junk has stood on top recommendation list of Halong Bay Cruise ever since it started operation. Despite its modest design and standard amenities, it is the staff's attention to details and unique cruise program that have earned its reputation. Dragon Pearl crews always try to make you feel comfortable on board and ensure that you enjoy the trip to the fullest. As for the program, you will be cruising mainly in Bai Tu Long area, where you can see more of Halong and less of tourists.

There are a total of 3 vessels named Dragon Pearl Junk, each with 11 well appointed cabins, with fine woodwork cutting through the architecture and interior decoration. The common area can seat up to 36 and perfect for any cruiser looking forward to venturing out Halong Bay. The sundeck on top of the cruise is great for phototaking, sunset watching or simply resting.

Enjoy the colors and images of the Bay with Dragon Pearl and you will not be disappointed in the least.

Dear Julianne Sanson, Thank you so much for your booking with us! However, I am sorry that Dragon Pearl Junk is fully booked on your date already. May I suggest you Dragon Legend Cruise from the same company with Dragon Pearl Junk as an alternative? We would like to offer you the same cost as Dragon Pearl Junk thus the total cost for your booking is US$ 410/Deluxe cabin + US$ 20/person for shuttle bus one-way Halong - Hanoi. I hope my suggestion would work or if you have other option in mind, please feel free to let me know. Best regards, Jolie (Ms.)

Dear Johnson, Thank you for your question and Dragon Pearl and Indochina Sails are two separate cruise operators. Dragon Pearl Junk belongs to the Indochina Junk group and Indochina Sails operate vessel of the same name and Valentine Junk. It is hard to tell which one is better as each offers their unique program with unique features. You can contact us: info@halongbaytours.com should you need a more detailed comparison between the two to help you decide!

We spent 2 full nights at Bai Tu Long Bay. The whole trip was exhilarating, although there was a bit of worry about a narrow space as too many guests on board. The tour guide Coco who took great care of us. Bai Tu Long Bay is the right choice to explore. Visiting the cave by kayaking may seem challenging, but it is worth a try.

We were looking forward to staying overnight on the Dragon Pearl cruise ship. Everything was fine, if not disappointing. As follows: Lunch was not special like the menu said. Hot drinks were also not available. Too many fried foods on the menu. There weren't enough healthy options. Poor breakfast. We expect to have a Vietnamese menu instead of having too many Western dishes. Our cabin was quite comfortable. However, the shower is rusted. It can be seen that the facilities weren't well maintained. Too many guests traveled on the same day, so the staff still had time to pay more attention. The activities are superficial and have nothing to say about them. Consider before booking.

Dragon Pearl is a lovely ship where we stayed for 1 night. The cabins are fully equipped (including beds, necessary equipment, toiletries, and showers with hot water). The sundeck area is spacious. Fun activities. What made the trip special was the staff. They paid attention to us all the time. Ha Long Bay is more beautiful but more crowded. We recommend spending more time on Bai Tu Long.

We read the reviews carefully before deciding whether we would take the trip. Luckily, this ship is exactly as far as we know. It was a great trip with lots of help. Starting from booking via the website, contact via email, hotel pick up, and all necessary information. Every process went smoothly. Then comes the crew. All staff members are hard-working and friendly. All information about the activity is updated before we join in. The entire crew went out of their way to ensure we always felt relaxed. Breathtaking scenery. The trip to Bai Tu Long Bay was worth it. The room was spacious, the wooden floors were spotless. Dining room offers delicious food and breathtaking views. We will book it again.
One unfortunate thing is that there is a lot of trash in the bay.

The 3-day trip has a lot to talk about. Our tour guide, her colleagues, cruise manager, and receptionist, were wonderful. Nothing too serious. They had good control. Great sense of humor. The 3-day itinerary is recommended as there is a less busy schedule on day 2. The chef prepared the most delicious food. BBQ lunch on the beach was superb. Rcm this cruise.

Our whole group made the journey to Halong Bay on Dragon Pearl. The reason we chose Dragon Pearl is because it's a small boat with moderate capacity. The cabin is small but well-equipped. The entire space on the ship is made of wood and classic decoration. Bathroom is clean. The water system worked well. Staff is a special thing about the trip. The menu with meat and seafood that can be opted for if you are a vegetarian. Lots of dishes on your separate menu. Recommend you go at this time of year because the weather is pleasant.

We started the journey with 15 other passengers on board. It was an interesting experience we had in our life. The staff are very attentive and ready to accommodate all your requests. Dinner included both seafood and fresh meat dishes. We love kayaking.
The ship was old.

This journey was 100% amazing. I'm so glad I booked the 2-night trip. We spent all day on excursions and evenings relaxing on the ship. There was a lot to do for our group. Basic itinerary to all well-known places. Every passenger is taken great care of.

4 of us stayed for 1 night. The cabin was small but tidy and clean. The staff was kind and welcoming. The food was yummy. The view of the bay was impressive. The area was also quiet and less touristy. Highly recommended!
