I have so much to say about this "Party Cruise" but i will spare you all the unnecessary information. Ha Long Bay is beautiful... if you want a "party cruise" go with castaway or something with a good reputation. If you want a basic cruise go with something more luxurious. We expected a decent party with nice relaxing in between. For the price we paid it was not worth it at all. We expected a few free drinks/ a good happy hour, and fun activities and were quite disappointing. "happy" hour was buy 2 get 1 free which is weak. The accommodations are basic at best and the food is mediocre. The "guide" was nice but was more of a flight attendant/ camp counselor and was slightly awkward. Yes we got to kayak but they wouldn't let us take our own and had to share. The best part was cliff jumping the second day and staying on "freedom" island. the island had a weak volleyball court and floating devices to use however most were broken. Again the food was very basic/ somewhat disappointing. Luckily the other guests on the cruise were great and we all got along making the cruise bearable, Otherwise it would have been quite disappointing. The night on freedom island was nice but it did not save the overall experience.

Very unimpressed first of all with Anna's travel in Hanoi for recommending this tour, than second of all telling us that it was a nice clean and newer boat which is specifically what we asked for.

Now we are around 30 so looking for something with younger people, but not wanting to cheap out. She gave us 2 options both coating around $120 (with a special discount of course).

We arrived in halong bay at noon and had to wait 1.5hrs for
Others to arrive before to boarding the boat. Than we had lunch and were given us our rooms.

Than we hung out not sure what to do for a while.

Next was kayaking... This was the highlight of the trip for sure, we spent around an hour touring around and going through a little cave.

Than we were brought back to the boat to hang out. At this point we were aloud go swimming in the brown polluted water if we desired, we opted no. Plus it was already sunset at this Point since we got a late start and it was cold and windy.

Drinks were extra and were 3 times the price of any we had seen since being in the nam.

Staff was nice, but had nothing at all planned. We had nothing to entertain us all night besides the pricey booze. We had to ask for music, and it even quit working half was through the night.

They could've at least had some fun games or activities planned. We were told there would be May activities to choose from.

The next morning we were forced to get us and check out of our rooms by 8am! And everyone was hung over with nowhere to relax.

We basically than sat around the next 4 hours board with nothing to do or see besides a 20 minute cooking demonstration.

We were very unhappy with this your. On top of it the boat didn't even have the cool sails you see on even picture online. In fact we didn't see any boats that did, besides some docked at the harbour.

So to sum it up we basically wasted our time on this cruse and would've paid twice as much for something better

Let me start off that this was an amazing experience. This cruise was perfect for young adults that wish to spend their trips with other young adults and no families. I was traveling through Asia alone and this was a great opportunity to meet other travelers. The kayak tour was basically all to ourselves and I did not spot another boat near our area. The staff and the crew were very nice and funny. I would recommend the trip to any young adult that wishes to have a good time in Halong Bay.

Since your visit in October 2015 our tour now boasts an impressive 2 hours of Kayaking. We value our guests feedback and are always trying to improve our tours. As the name of the tour suggests 'Halong Party Cruise' there is alcohol involved but unlike the 'booze cruises in Halong Bay we are now very much activity based. Thank you

I initially took the one night two day tour. Towards the end of the first day I was so thrilled I extended it to two nights and three days and I DONT REGRET it :)
Loved the tour guide who was soo nice and energetic whole through out. ! Freedom island was just amazing. It's an island with two beaches . we had a small crowd so it was just nice.
Overall I would recommend this trip if you want to drink and party while you enjoy environment :)
Breakfast need to be improved a bit. Guess I was lucky to meet this particular tour guide as well the crowd who was on board

Definitively recommend this company! The guys from the boat will receive you with their best energy! And try to stay one night in Freedom Island and see the flourescent plankton in the sea at night!

We did the three days and two nights trip. Trip leader, Snake, was really great and the food was good.
It wasn't much of a party though and I won't recommend it to anyone 25 and older. One of my friends also got a tanning bed to sleep on during our night on the boat. We asked for it to be removed and ended up sharing a bed.

At the end, the positives made up for the negatives, Halong Bay is beautiful. Unfortunately, after paying our trip in full, we were not picked up from our hostel to go to the airport, as promised. After almost missing our flight, numerous phone calls and a $35 taxi fare, I was really disappointed as there are many other cruises available in Halong bay.

I organised the trip and felt responsible for their mistake, which everyone had to split at the end. Eish Mr David.... Sneaky, sneaky

So to start off you read about a million brochures when deciding what cruise to take through Halong bay, as a group of all about 25 year olds we selected this one based on all the activities it includes via the website and brochure. The boat itself is a little outdated, but not bad by any means. The environment is fun, but all the activities it mentions are basically here say. The kayaks had holes in them, the rock climbing is only possible if your a professional boulderer, karaoke doesn't exist amongst other things. We met an incredible group of people on the boat which is what made the trip so much fun for us, otherwise we would've been rather disappointed. We did the 2 day trip and were told kayaking twice when in fact we did it only once for not even 30 minutes. The schedule is very strict and on an "okay we go now" basis. The second day of the trip you stay at "freedom island" in a dorm style bungalow, the owner of this property is EXTREMELY rude, it's actually surprising they still bring people to the property with him in charge. For a party cruise you are woken up at 7 am and basically told to move like ASAP to check out. All in all the only reason I would recommend this tour is because of the amazing people you meet, the tour company is definitely sub par. The other tours we looked at were geared toward older crowds, with activities like sunrise tai chi, so we are happy with the group we ended up with just felt let down with a lot of open ended promises. Although our tour guide was extremely nice and helpful, because he understood the disappointment amongst majority of the group.

I did the 2 day, 1 night Party cruise and found it to be a good value for your money. We lucked out and had great travellers in our group, many who we've remained friends with since the trip. Drinks on the boat were fairly priced and the organizers did a good job of creating a fun party atmosphere that didn't see to young. The average age seemed to be between 25-30. Highlights include: touring the caves and jumping off the boat. HaLong Bay is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and the Party Cruise was an awesome way to see it!

Halong Bay is worth visiting because it's spectacular. Unfortunately, the tourism of it does not match up. Most boats are old and basic - most are falling apart. The employees are so friendly and nice but sometimes lacking knowledge of the place. I would go no longer than 3 days - 2 nights with one night on the island and one night on the boat. It's not hugely cultured but geologically is amazing.
