    Best choice for HaLong Bay Cruise! Seriously Beautiful. Thanks Moon for arranging our trip. The whole family, including two teenage daughters, loved our experience on the boat. We did the 3D/2N cruise and we're glad we stayed for the extra night. The staff was truly amazing. Really well trained and super friendly. They made it a perfect experience. Special mention to Harry, Tracey, Windy, and Lily, thank you from us all. The food and the cabin were also above expectation. Sunrises and sunsets were spectacular.

    The only disappointment was how much garbage was floating in the water. The local authorities had better get their act together and clean up the water and limit the number of polluting diesel engines are allowed to pollute the waters before they lose their tourist market. Only a few years left to correct it, I'm guessing.

    I did a lot of research before selecting Stellar and I definitely made the right choice! The ship is simply amazing! It is by far the nicest ship you’ll see in Halong Bay. The food was fabulous!! I’m a picky eater and was a little worried when I saw the lunch menu, but it was superb! And the BBQ dinner was awesome! The staff was friendly and very helpful, I was particularly impressed that even though we only did the 2D1N tour several of the staff members knew my mom and I by name!

    It was a little more expensive than some other options, but it was well worth it.
