I spent 2days 1 night on this boat with a group of friends. We enjoyed every minute here with friendly people and super hospitality during the tine onboard. The food was awsome with fresh seafood. The shrimp burning by limestone in Halong Bay which was special seafood I like most. Highly recommended! Very reasonable price.

Group leader Duk worked very hard to keep all group passsengers safe during stormy weather, created options to meet a variety of traveller needs while relocating us off the boat into a hotel night stay, and back onto the boat to continue 2nd day of the trip. All done while translating to a second language, coordinating with company requirements to exceed guest expectations, all with courtesy, professionalism and a smile. Highly recommended!

“Amazing experience”

V Spirit cruise was fab- the food was amazing and so much of it. Included a good mix of things not just seafood. Vegetarians also well catered for.Also included was trip to the caves, the beach, kayaking and a cookery demo. Thoroughly enjoyed it and it was great value drinks were extra but they were reasonable prices. Our guide SuSu was brilliant and very funny. 4 hour bus journey to get there from Hanoi was long but ok too. Staff were all great and safety seemed good. Tips: you need to be reasonably fit to climb the steps to the caves. Take your own water or buy from the small boats which visit your bedroom porthole in the evening!

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The company I wanted to use for our tour of Ha Long Bay was completely booked for our dates (my fault for being a procrastinator) and they recommended V’Spirit. Overall, I was not that impressed. I see that the other reviewers here had a more positive experience, but i can only comment on what it was like for us.

The boat was much dingier than I expected. The outside was full of peeling paint, and the life vests we had to wear in the small “back and forth” boat were covered in mildew. And our bathroom didn’t feel completely clean – a state not helped by the fact that nothing every got dry in there, due to the fact that the shower was just a nozzle coming out of the wall and draining through the floor. (Yes, I’m aware this is the case in many bathrooms in developing countries – but I make a point of avoiding such bathrooms, so I was a little taken aback.)

The food on the boat was very mediocre, which was such a disappointment after being in Vietnam for a week and a half and having some really amazing food. Everything they served us was just bland. I realize they may do that on purpose for us tourists, but it was a real disappointment for us, since a huge part of the travel experience for us is about food. Additionally, they brought out these comically large platters (everything was served family style) and at every single meal more than half the food was left over. Such a waste.

Additionally, the itinerary felt very “canned.” Go here and kayak for one hour, then go there and tour a cave for one hour surrounded by other groups touring said cave… just not my kind of thing. But then again, I somewhat expected this, and I’m not sure how else they could do it, given how popular Ha Long Bay is. But I could certainly do without the stops on the way to and from the bay, at a warehouse/souvenir shop, where we waited for half an hour while the bus got washed and the driver took a break. It just felt very ”here, buy something since we’re forcing you to hang out here.”

On the plus side, the staff/crew on the boat were amazing. Just the nicest, most helpful people you could imagine. Always friendly, always concerned about how they could make things better for you. I wasn’t feeling well when we boarded and everyone was very concerned and tried to find ways to help me. We couldn’t have asked for better service.
