Owner description: A unique cruise to explore Halong's gorgeous sites and local life. The TREASURE, our traditional junk with modern facilities offers an overnight cruise with comfortable accommodation and professional service. Among the most popular features of this tour you’ll like a boat route which takes you away from mass tourist sites, a spacious sundeck and some complimentary kayaking to the remotest parts of the bay. Allow yourself a time of serenity and relaxation far from everything.

We searched extensively about the differences in the various cruises. While I still don’t know the differences in the different operators, I can say that our young adult children, husband and I had a lovely 24 hours. One of the outstanding aspects of this cruise was the knowledgeable and organized staff. They all seemed sincerely interested in seeing that we had a lovely time. We participated in the afternoon kayak experience. No trash was seen at the kayak time but during the morning excursion to the fishing village it was sad to see floating trash. There were less thank 30 guests on the boat and there is plenty of space to spread out. The rooms were adequate and bathroom newly remodeled. Water was free and available (I recall seeing some reviews complaining about needing to purchase water on the Halong bay cruises). Loved the peaceful experience.

On our trip to the Halong Bay we could experience the magic atmosphere of a (rare, as they told us) misty bay. It really added a special perspective to our wonderful trip. And with our guide Phu we felt absolutely safe not getting lost kayaking in the mist.

The staff of the boat did everything to make our stay comfortable. The room was nice and clean and the trips to the cave, the fisher village and to less busy parts of the bay have been very exciting.

One note: We had our room close to the bow of the ship and could hear it very well when we went to anchor. But we didn't mind at all - it happened only a few times of the day and well, after all we were on a ship. And also on one with a beautiful deck where we could relax and enjoy a cocktail - what else could you want? :-)

My husband and I have just returned from the 2 day 1 night cruise on the treasure junk. We stayed in a suite and could not of asked for more, room was lovely, food fantastic and staff were really friendly. Idyllic, calm and peaceful experience, perfect way to visit Halong Bay.

We had such a wonderful time on this cruise. Our main guide for the whole thing was Duc, and I think he's the best guide we've ever had. Friendly, knowledgeable, and incredibly genuine. We booked the smaller of the room options and thought it was great. Some people in TripAdvisor complained about the size of the smaller rooms, so I was a bit worried, but we found them to be a perfect size. Cozy, charming, and it's so cool how you are right on the water, and you can look out the window and see these giant stone islands pretty much right in front of you.

We went back and forth in deciding between the 1-night and 2-night option. We chose 2-night and think we chose correctly, but 1-night would also be a fine option. You definitely get the gist of it in 1 night, but if you are the type of person that likes to linger a bit and take your time in places, I think the 2-night option is better. Don't worry if you find yourself getting confused by the itinerary and which boat you are on etc--they'll always tell you what you need to do. It's actually pretty impressive how they manage the schedule with a combination of 1-night and 2-night groups. The thing I was maybe most confused about when doing my research was the boat change. Here's the deal tho: you keep your same cabin the whole time even though (at least on the 2-night option) you spend part of one day on another cruise boat. (I believe they do this so the main boat can do a drop off of the 1-nighters, and pick up the next set of guests, without interrupting your vacation.)

Another nice perk of the trip: you'll probably be friends with a bunch of the other guests by the end of the cruise! It's a lot of fun.
