1 night in Halong Bay on Violet Cruise was incredible. Vinny was the best host and we were so lucky to be taken care of by the team. Everyone was welcoming and accommodating. The cabin was spacious, luxurious and cozy. Food was fantastic with plenty of it. The trips to the cave, the island, and the floating village were all interesting and we learned much about the bay thanks to the knowledgeable guide. Can't recommend this cruise enough.

We spent 2 nights and were satisfied with the trip. The staff was polite and professional. The cruise manager went above and beyond and the whole team was super helpful and friendly. The food was plentiful. Local seafood dishes were the best. The trip to the village was tranquil and interesting. The caves were beautiful and the island was excellent with the top view. Highly recommend everyone to book 2 nights.

The ship itself was old but thoughtfully appointed. Halong Bay was breathtaking. Our cabin has a balcony and a clean bathroom. Things went smoothly. Violet is a good choice for more privacy.

It was cloudy on our trip but the scenery was still gorgeous. Violet Cruise was well furnished and we had a comfortable cabin with balcony. The food was 10 out of 10. The service was personalized since there were only 12 guests onboard. It was best for socializing and enjoying privacy with your loved one. Highly recommended!

Heritage Line Violet Cruise was a must in Halong Bay. The ship was super clean and well equipped. We were on the ship with 5 other couples and they were all nice. The staff could not do better. Food was fresh and had an amazing taste. Overall a memorable experience.

The trip on Violet Cruise was amazing. The team offered a great service. There are only 6 rooms that are perfect for private time and space. The ship has been operating for years so the interior was a bit downgraded. However, it was clean and convenient. The cabin has everything we expected. Recommended!
