Lovely Cruise in Halong Bay”

We did the 2 night Cruise on the Pelican - the staff were all lovely. The food was excellent, it was amazing the quality of the food they could produce on the boat. we paid extra and had one of the bigger rooms on the top deck which I think was worth the money - their was fruit and a complementary bottle of wine in our room. We were there is January so the weather wasn't great, we chose not to swim as it wasn't that warm, however we did go kayaking and stopped off at Ti Top island and walked the steps to the top to experience the view - which is really worth it by the way. They put both the one day guests and 2 day guests on the same boat - which is not explained at the start. on day 2 - the 2 day guests transfer to a smaller day boat and go out for the day on that - its more kayaking and a trip to a pearl farm and a trip round a fishing village. on day 2 you have lunch on board the day boat - to be honest this lunch was a bit disappointing after the lovely food on board the main boat - but it was ok. There is a gala dinner each night - it follows the same routine each night - however if you are a 2 night guest you are provided with a different meal - which is good. Its a big meal by the way!! You probably don't experience a lot more by staying for the extra night however if your trip isn't too tight for time, I would recommend it as it makes the whole experience more relaxing - the 4 hour mini bus trip is a LONG trip on a bumpy road with one 20min stop halfway. The roads are crazy and watching out the front window is not for the faint hearted, therefore I would recommend staying for the 2 nights to have a more relaxed trip. Halong bay was fantastic, it really is breathtaking and the junket trip is fun to experience. If you are going to Vietnam - make sure you squeeze in a trip to Halong Bay.

Great cruise, great crew, perfect getaway.”

I initially booked with Pelican and then they moved us to Azalea cruise which is also run by the same company. The experience with Azalea was just perfect, the crew are very nice to everyone and they look into all your needs. The manager Diago was just magnificent with the way he managed the crew and how well he treated the guests. He kept everyone upto date on the plans , what else we could do while on the cruise and some great infomration on Halong bay/Lan Ha bay and its history. I was so glad that he was our cruise manager since I don't think anyone else would have kept us so entertained and had such a unique way of telling us the details of every place we visited. Overally, defnitely worth booking with Azalea with Diago as your manager.

A lovely experience! ”

We loved our Halong Bay cruise with Pelican. The boat was lovely and filled with character, and we were so pleased that we spent a little more for a suite room with private balcony at the front of the boat. It was all very comfortable. The food was tasty without being spectacular, but that wasn’t an issue for us. The off boat activities were well organised and fun, even though you’re sharing them with lots of tourists from other boats! We’d happily do a Pelican cruise again.

It was very nice. I booked 1 Single Deluxe room good for one person for a 2 Days and 1 night cruise, we enjoyed a lot. The food was great, always buffet. We are always full. We request for a pick up service in the airport and it was really on time. The van is spacious, a ford van. Very very nice, the view going to Halong Bay is also very nice. Pelican is a SUPERB and affordable.

Halong Bay Cruise ”

Loved this cruise and loved this beautiful timber boat. This was by far the nicest boat that we saw on the Bay. The lovely timber features are amazing. Cabins are luxurious and comfortable, with individual doors to outside. We had a family connecting room, with two en-Suites. Love our time with Pelican Cruises. Would do it again. Staff are friendly, courteous and accommodating. Highly recommend. x

The boat and the room was simply Perfect”

Great food, friendly staff and really nice tour experience. The only problem is they accidentally provided all our food (Dinner) to the wrong table. We have requested for Halal (FIsh + Vegetarian food) food since the beginning. We even confirmed this when we checked in. But as there is no dinner table number/room number to track this. the Stuff accidently sent all our food the wrong table. We missed a few courses. Overall, if I ignore this, Pelican is the best option in Halong Bay.

The cruise was very comfortable and the food was nice. However, I noticed most of the cruise companies run similar itineraries. Hence, if money is a concern, a cheaper alternative can still cover the same items. However, the staff were really welcoming and the rooms were clean with beautiful views of Ha Long Bay during the cruise. One of the best ways to go around Ha Long Bay.

Highlight of my Vietnam trip!”

Was transferred to Azealea cruise instead due to water system issue during the dates I booked. However, we got a free upgrade and Azealea cruise is beautiful and clean with excellent service! The staff are very polite and helpful which value adds the stay! Even though the itinerary wasn't the one that we wanted to go for, the route we took on Azalea is less crowded and the water is more pristine. Love the scenery and had a relaxing trip ! Highly recommend to visit Halong Bay if you're visiting Vietnam!

Efficiently managed cruise tour, good quality services”

Overall a good experience on Pelican: it feels like a very professionally run operation, with a slightly old but very well maintained boat, friendly and helpful staff (despite some language barrier sometimes) who did their best to make the experience pleasant for everyone and plenty of food, fresh and of a higher quality than expected: it didn't feel like a "cheap buffet experience", though not Michelin food either of course. Overall you get what you pay for, no surprise and everything (bus pickup at hotel, boarding, meals, activities, etc.) comes on time just as planned: no surprise or stress from beginning to end, everything is executed very smoothly by professional and friendly staff. X) One thing to improve: the ground experience at the check-in booth in the harbor: once arrived from the minibus sent by the cruise company, we are handed a "welcome drink" and left sitting in a busy waiting lounge with no further explanations or spoken welcome and no idea when/how/where we'll be able to board. X) One thing to note: the cruise schedule is very busy: on the first day you barely have time to enjoy the cruise itself as activities are following each other in a very tightly orchestrated schedule. Of course there's always the option to pass on those and stay to relax on the main boat deck, though you feel like missing out.

Wonderful experience”

The cruise crew helped us celebrate our engagement. That was so amazing and meaningful. Our guide on the cruise Mr.Thanh was awesome, really helpful and friendly. Activities were pretty neat, especially visiting Ti Top Island and Surprise Cave. We were completely blown away by the beauty of nature there. The next morning we did Taichi on the sun deck, enjoyed watching the limestone labyrinths. Our room in reality was as beautiful as the pictures on Agoda. However, we hope that the Wifi will be continuously connected in the room. In addition, Maitai should have been filled with more liquor than foam. Besides this, we had a great time!

Pros of the cruise are very nice and comfortable boat, the food is really good. Cons are that pelican take you to all the spots that all the other cruise ship lines go to so that the activities are very over crowded. Wine is also very over priced on the boat.

Wonderful Cruise!”

The site is magnificent! Nice ship and room, excellent food. Ery friendly and kind staff. We took a 2 night 3 days package, 2nd day we transfer to a day boat then come back around 4 pm. We enjoyed a lot even if weather was a little cold and rainy. However the Halong Bay is a little overcrowded with so many ships. A 4 day cruise package with lots of free time would be a welcome addition as no one else offers it. It would need more on ship entertainment like karaoke or games. Overall very enjoyable! Thank you to all!

To die for literally The tour was not rushed and the guides were kind and courteous the.

Great crew! Beautiful boat”

My husband and I stayed one night on the Pelican cruise for our honeymoon and had a great time. The crew was so wonderful and helpful, the boat was very clean and the food was good.

great way to explore Halong Bay”

nice food, nice sun deck & comfort bed

it was a pleasant trip we spent our night at pelican cruise to enjoy the UNESCO heritage at Halong Bay, the cruise sails very smooth, you feel nothing like you stay at landed hotel. you can feel the morning breeze upon the sun deck greeting you with the spectacular view 360 degree around the cruise . smell the ocean mist and awaken yr soul with morning tai chi on the deck. what a great journey to enjoy :)

Beautiful Cruise”

The cruise was very pretty. We went for a 1 night, 2 day cruise. The itinerary was quite packed so there wasn't much downtime, which we appreciated since a 1 night cruise is quite short. If you had more time, I might recommend staying for 2 nights for a more relaxed visit. The dinner was fantastic. The rooms were pretty clean, but were quite small - I guess that comes with the fact that you are living on a ship. There was a mix up when coordinating our transportation from Hanoi. The manager called to offer to upgrade our room but they ended up not doing so which was a bummer. But overall the cruise was good.
