Great cruise ship. We booked a suite room with a private balcony, jacuzzi bathtub. The room and the public areas were clean, but somewhere in the Bay has a lot of plastic garbage. I hope it could be dealt with soon to protect this beautiful bay. There were more boats in the Bay than I thought, but it was still a truly amazing trip. Staff was helpful, our tour guide was great in explaining everything to us. We had 4 meals onboard, all were delicious and plentiful. The chef in the cookery class was so skillful, he taught us how to cook Vietnamese delicacy. Almost everything was included in the price except for drinks and spa services.
"Experience with Alisa Premier Cruise"
The cruise ship was nice and good quality. All the staff were kind and accommodating. Though we are all vegetarians, it didn’t put them in trouble. The staff noted carefully what we eat and don’t eat, they always tried to give us good food. We did this trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary, so the cruise prepared our room as the one we got at the wedding ceremony. The activities seemed a bit too much for us, so we skipped Tai Chi and cooking class to have more time for relaxing. We realized that we should have booked two night trip instead of 1 night only. Our guide was Thuy, she was a great guide for a memorable experience.
We had one of the greatest trips in Vietnam with Alisa Premier Cruise. Halong Bay is totally worth visiting, it has spectacular scenery, amazing caves, and islands. We were welcomed by the great staff on the cruise ship who always tried to make your stay memorable. Alisa Premier Cruise has deserved 5 stars of quality with a nice room, nice balcony, good facilities. We had Thuy as our guide. She was doing an excellent job by giving us plenty of information. The food served on the ship was yummy and tasty. One of the top choices for the Halong Bay trip. Highly recommended.
"Great tour and amazing boat!"
The boat journey was fantastic. Our host was Ms. Thuy who had a great sense of humor. She kept the whole trip entertained and educated. Her colleagues were excellent too, very accommodating. Halong Bay is definitely worth coming once in a lifetime. Highly recommended.
"Alisa was outstanding from start to finish"
We would absolutely recommend Alisa Premier Cruise for anyone wanting to visit Halong Bay on an overnight cruise ship. Halong Bay must be one of the most impressive bays in the world. The rock formations and islets were stunning. You must try cave visiting and reach the top mountain to see the amazing panorama of the Bay. We did have 3 days 2 nights cruise because we thought it wouldn’t be rushed. On day two, we took a day boat going further to explore the more hidden corners of the Bay, kayaking there was ideal. The room we had was fantastic. It was clean, spacious, and luxurious with a jacuzzi bathtub. Catering on board was perfect. We were served both Vietnamese food and Western food. Seafood was fresh and yummy too. All the staff was kind, well-trained, and they always tried to make our stay memorable.
We planned to book a day trip initially, however, we changed our mind to take 2 days a 1-night trip because a day trip wouldn’t sail you far enough to get out of the crowded area with hundreds of other boats. This was a brilliant choice. Alisa Premier Cruise was great in every way. I would come back.
"Must go Halong Bay Cruise"
We did a cruise on Alisa Premier Cruise for 1 night. The stay on board was excellent. Halong is charming no matter the weather is. The cruise ship was bigger than I thought. Our room was lovely with a private balcony, the amenities were luxurious. All the staff was heros, very friendly and polite. The activities were reasonable that we didn’t feel being rushed at all. We did kayaking, cave visiting, swimming, hiking, cooking, squid fishing, Tai Chi that were all interesting. We recommend Thuy, our great tour guide, had explained everything about the Bay for us.
"Recommended Halong Bay 2-day cruise"
We had Thuy as our tour guide. She is one of the best guides we’ve had in Vietnam. Very pleasant, knowledgeable about the site, especially about the Sung Sot Cave. The captain and his team were friendly and caring. The Alisa Premier cruise is well decorated with a spacious room. Everywhere on the cruise was clean. The food we had was exceptional, I like the cookery class so much. The whole trip was very interesting, and we were able to rest that we couldn’t do in the bustling city of Hanoi. We wish we could have stayed longer than one night.
"Best chance to relax"
My family really enjoyed the trip with Alisa Premier Cruise. It is worth spending money. We were lucky because the weather was so nice to make everything stunning. Staff on the cruise did good work, very accommodating. We love Halong Bay. I would come back.
Our trip lasted for 2 days 1 night on Alisa Premier Cruise. Halong Bay is truly amazing. I hope people wouldn’t spoil it by contaminating the water. Cruise is nice with friendly people. Highly recommend.
"Best trip ever"
We had a great trip for a lifetime with Alisa Premier. We were allowed to enjoy the stay, even more, when we were free upgraded to a room with a private balcony. Our room is brilliant and clean. Though both of us were over 70, we could try almost every activity provided which was well organized. We absolutely enjoyed the food. FOOD was INCREDIBLE. The cooking demonstration of making spring rolls was interesting too. The staff was all accommodating and couldn’t do enough for us and other guests. Our tour guide was an attractive lady who was knowledgeable. We highly recommend you should book 2 nights to stay on the cruise if you have adequate time. It was so bad because we didn’t choose to stay one more night. The city is a bit noisy for us. Thanks, Alisa Premier for making our trip special.
Halong Bay is a true masterpiece of Heaven. The Bay is dotted by thousands of limestone islands making the landscape so stunning. Forget all about warnings about crowds of ships, polluted water, the beauty we saw was overwhelming everything. We booked a one night trip with Anna Pham, she was very patient to deal with our requests promptly. Alisa Premier Cruise is one of the best compared to others in the Bay. Our room was even larger than my room at the hotel in Hanoi. It had a private balcony allowing us to have our own time. That’s a special plus point. We did hiking, cave sightseeing, swimming, kayaking that’s all entertaining. On-board activities like cooking class, Tai Chi in the morning were interesting but could be given a miss, you can spend time on the deck instead. The staff was good, excellent courses for meals. Great trip!
"Must-try Halong Bay Cruise"
We considered a lot among different cruises in Halong Bay. Finally, we booked a night stay with Alisa Premier Cruise. The booking was easy and simple. Nancy was very helpful in handling our booking. Alisa Premier cruise is bigger than other ships nearby, and it is so beautiful with large sun deck. Our captain James and his crews were so friendly and professional. I wonder how they can keep smiling all day! All staff at the restaurant were caring too. I must say I love them so much, and I wish I could remember all their names to mention here. Thanks, Alisa Premier Cruise for making our trip exceptional. I will recommend it to other clients.
"Great in every way"
We had an one night trip with Alisa Premier Cruise. Everything met our expectations. Thanks, Ms. Thuy for being a great guide. Nice staff, too. Recommended.
"Recommended for 2 days 1 night in Halong Bay"
We met a lot of people from different countries on the cruise. It was great to make new friends. The crew was so cool. The tour guide is funny and informative. We booked a small room at a reasonable price. It is surprisingly clean, still has a private balcony. The cruise isn’t noisy, so it is good for sleeping. Thanks.
"Perfection made by Alisa Premier Cruise"
This was the very first time I have been to Vietnam. Halong is really an ideal plan for your vacation. And thanks Alisa Premier Cruise team for making our trip very memorable. Special thanks to Nancy who helped us book this perfect tour. She is great in communication with customers, very accommodating. The trip was perfect from the beginning to the end. Nice people, beautiful room, comfortable stay, yummy food, funny activities. What an amazing trip to Halong Bay. Our tour guide is great too. She is a knowledgeable, the high command of English. We would definitely recommend Alisa!
"Comfortable and lovely experience with Alisa"
We got a one night trip to Halong Bay with Alisa Premier Cruise. The cruise is amazing with spectacular views from the room private balcony. What included in the price was clearly stated, we only had to pay for drinks and spa (optional). The cruise is new and modern. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. We booked a triple room for three persons, it was spacious and well-decorated. Because our room was close to the engines, so it was a little bit noisy when the cruise was sailing. However, it was not a big problem because we didn’t spend much time in the room during the day. In the evening, when the cruise stopped in the sleeping area, it was comfortable to relax. All the meals we had on board were exceptional. The buffet was served with various choices. I was late for breakfast but still, have enough food there. It was a lovely trip. I enjoyed relaxing on the deck while the cruise was sailing through the beautiful limestone islands. I will recommend this experience.
"Lovely cruise and Thuy was a great guide"
Great experience with Alisa Premier Cruise. The food was great. Requests on a special diet were recorded carefully. Our room on the cruise was immaculately clean and comfortable. Ms. Thuy, our tour guide, was accommodating and professional. She presented much useful information about Halong Bay, especially Sung Sot Cave. The first day on the cruise was nice with the chilly weather. Unfortunately, it rained the whole morning on the second day so we couldn’t do hiking and swimming activities on Titop Island. It is recommended for you to bring cash to pay the bill for add-ons services of massage and drinks. Thanks, Alisa Premier team for excellent hospitality.
"Excellent cruise for the family"
My family had a memorable time on the Alisa Premier Cruise. We all were picked up at our hotel in Hanoi. My kids love the luxury bus so much. The cruise is incredible. We booked a family room which is clean, large, and easy for us to take care of my kids. The balcony has a nice view, and it’s safe for kids. The food provided on board was super delicious. I realized that my kids love Vietnamese food so much. We were served with 5 courses for lunch and 6 courses for dinner. Our tour guide Thuy, was very patient and caring for my children. My family did enjoy the kayaking which is included in the price. it is definitely recommended!
"Must do once in Vietnam"
I went to Vietnam for my business trip, so I only had 2 days free to visit somewhere. I was recommended to take Halong Bay trip with Alisa Premier Cruise for one night to stay on board. This is exactly what I need to relax after the meetings. I booked the trip with Anna Pham. I love the way she worked on my booking, very careful, and professional. The Alisa Premier Cruise is so huge. Everything was so great. I wish I could have 3 days 2 nights trip to experience more, however, the one night trip was still wonderful for those who don’t have much time like me. The staff on the cruise was helpful and very polite. What a lovely cruise. I will definitely come back with my family on my next vacation.
"Everything went beyond our expectations"
Before I decided to book the one night trip with Alisa Premier Cruise, I did a lot of searches for information about other cruises in Halong Bay. My decision was right. The cruise was amazing. It even exceeded my expectations. Halong Bay probably deserves as the World Heritage for its wonderful landscape. Everything is shown in the advertisement, TV, and other media was true, and even much better. I was able to relax on the cruise that I couldn’t do on other tours which were a bit rush. All crew members were a credit to the cruise. They were enthusiastic, energetic, and friendly with their smiling faces, though they were threatened by the Coronavirus epidemic with low traffic of tourists. Ms. Thuy who was assigned to be our guide was knowledgeable. She was able to keep the trip funny and educational. The activities on the trip were fun, especially the night squid fishing. I was lucky to catch 2 baby squids. Thanks, Alisa Premier Cruise.
"Fantastic 5-star trip with Alisa Premier Cruise"
We booked directly on the website of the Alisa Premier Cruise. The lady Alice was very patient and accommodating with dealing with thousands of my queries, even my last-minute changes. Thanks, Alice. Overall, it was a great trip that definitely is worth your money. Transportation to Cruise was more than I expected, staff on the cruise were superb friendly. I love their smile so much. I was so excited about the view from my room with a private balcony overlooking Halong Bay. The amenities inside the cabin are nice. The bed is large, and I particularly love the jacuzzi bathtub. The food was fantastic. We had 4 meals onboard that were all great with various Vietnamese delicacies. Thanks, John for providing the best meals. The activities were appropriate for all ages. I love kayaking and hiking to the top of the mountain. Thanks, Ms. Thuy, a great tour guide, for her efforts. Highly recommended.
"Excellent stay, mouth-watering food, friendly and informative staff"
We just finished one night trip with Alisa Premier Cruise several hours ago. I miss everything we had during the cruise. It was a nice trip. While the cruise is rated 5 stars, all the staff on the cruise is worth 6 stars for their effort. We were picked up promptly at our hotel in Hanoi’s Old Quarter. The limousine car was perfect. The drive was safe. After reaching the dock, we waited for a while at the waiting lounge before the boarding time. We were welcomed warmly by the crew members and was invited a cup of watermelon juice for a welcome drink. After a short introduction, we were served with a delicious lunch with various Vietnamese food. Because my wife is a vegan, the chef was so careful and gave her a lot of choices for vegan food. The room we got was super nice, cozy, and clean with a private balcony. The bathroom was pretty good with a beautiful view. What we did on the first day were cave visiting and kayaking. The cave is named “Surprise Cave”, and it is really incredible. We had a lot of fun with kayaking too. I found that kayaking isn’t as difficult as I thought. We were glad to be guided by Ms. Thuy, a friendly and knowledgeable tour guide who gave us helpful information about Halong Bay. The sunset in Halong Bay is one of the best ones I have seen in my life. After enjoying the romantic sunset with a deck party and a cooking class, we had a special dinner on board. We had a wonderful evening with other guests who were friendly. On the next day, the morning got started by a Tai Chi Class on the deck, followed by a lovely breakfast. On this day, we did easy trekking on Titop Island. There was another choice of swimming, but we prefer hiking. It took about a half-hour to reach the top. We got a bit tired but the view from the top was definitely worth it. We got back to the cruise for a shower and enjoyed the last lunch on the cruise before heading back to the dock. I found that I am passionate about Vietnamese cuisine. Around 11.45 am, we disembarked the cruise to board the bus for a drive back to Hanoi. I would recommend the trip with Alisa Premier Cruise to anyone who would like to go to Halong Bay. This trip was the best experience of my 7-day trip to Vietnam. About the connectivity, I saw several wifi spots in the dining rooms, not everywhere. I got a sim card in Vietnam for a free 4G network, and it worked well almost everywhere, even inside the cave. Worth trying.
"Beautiful room, fantastic service, and lovely food!"
We booked the 3 days/ 2 nights trip to Halong Bay for our honeymoon with Alisa Premier Cruise. Everything was absolutely fantastic from the beginning to the end, even afterward. Nancy was definitely helpful in assisting us with the booking, then followed us throughout the trip to make sure that everything was going perfectly. We are also appreciated by the lovely wishes she did give to us. The transfer from our hotel in Hanoi was comfortable with the luxury car. Our driver was a superhero. All the staff on the cruise did great work, they were willing to do everything to make our experience special. I would highly recommend the 2-night trip with Alisa Premier Cruise because the second day was worth spending time. We had a great chance to explore some less crowded areas of Halong Bay in a smaller group that we really enjoyed. We were transferred to a day boat which was smaller, but still nice and very clean, so we couldn’t access our cabin until we came back in the afternoon. However, it didn’t matter because we didn’t really need it. This trip was so special for me when my birthday was taken place on the cruise. I was so surprised at the amazing fruit sculpture the chef gave me as a gift. What a memorable milestone birthday! Thank Alisa Premier Cruise again for a wonderful trip. I will definitely come back.
