Wonderful cruise trip
After researching on the internet, we chose Paloma and it was truly an amazing experience. our guide on board take really good care and gave a good time to our 6-year-old daughter was happy at all times. He and his team provided a memorable experience and deserve a raise. Our family suite room appeared to be the best suite as the balcony was a great place to relax with wonderful views. The food was some of the best we had on our entire trip and the activities were great for the whole family. This cruise is definitely recommended for Halong holiday
We have a really good deal with last minute booking at the hotel, we love this cruise so much. The food was delicious and plentiful - breakfast had an excellent choice and was a buffet. They were also good at catering for dietary requirements. They provided bottled water for every excursion, so we needn’t have brought any with us.
More than happy
We had a beautiful time on Paloma cruise. The reason we love this one is, it\'s cruising to a more quiet part of Halong Bay, it is Bai Tu Long and we were not disappointed.The kayaking was included and it was an out of this world experience.It was a bit misty but the staff made sure that we had a wonderful tour and felt very safe.
More than happy
