We considered very carefully before making the final decision to Athena cruise and it did not let us down, the huge metal boat with big restaurant on the second floor the magic shows were very amazing the magician tries to invited me to taste his magical products but I dare not take it.

it would be a mistake, if not give a great compliment to the whole staff, who made a memorable trip for us.

Overall the Athena cruise very much met our expectations, considering it is in the higher price bracket. Transfers from our hotel in Hanoi were excellent with a luxury coach that provided one bottle of water, wifi and charging ports. It is quite a long journey though and were were glad we had chosen the two night cruise after all the effort involved in getting there. There was some waiting involved when we reached the port, but not unbearable and soon after we boarded the tender for the short trip to the cruise boat. Our accommodation was on the ground floor and this was more than adequate, we did not feel there was much to be gained from paying for the higher floor. The room itself was clean, modern, had lovely bathroom facilities and a small but adequate balcony. Meals were consistently of a high standard, exceeding expectations. The activities offered were a good variety and we felt they were a good mix to showcase the lovely Halong Bay region. All staff were excellent, friendly and willing to assist in any way. A special mention goes to Lisa our wonderful tour guide and Tony the waiter, tai chi instructor and resident magician. These two especially made our cruise one to remember. In fact we could only fault one thing, the lack of drinking water made freely available without having to purchase it. We struggled with the amount offered, especially when we were kayaking and swimming and only given one 350ml bottle each, then not even any provided at lunch. We understand that many cruise boats have this same policy regarding water, but for what we paid it is simply not good enough. Surely providing water dispensers that allow guests to refill their bottle would be much easier and eliminate the countless water bottles and plastic sealers that end up as waste. Water is a basic essential human need and needs to be offered without hesitation, and if Athena Cruises fixes this situation you will find them a perfect five stars. Nevertheless, we thoroughly recommend this cruise and it’s definitely worth your consideration.

We cannot fault any aspect of this two day, one night trip from pick up to drop off the next day. The boat is a nice size, not too large and every area was spotless. Our cabin was lovely with an excellent en-suite and small but adequate balcony. The meals were lovely and beautifully presented.
Everything ran like clockwork thanks to trip last leader Lisa and all of the staff. They were always cheery and attentive - nothing was a problem. We couldn't have asked for more.
