Despite not the perfect weather we enjoyed our Halong Bay trip, Glory Legend is one of the upscale cruises (there is also luxury), the ship was in a good condition, nice clean cabins, great and plenty of food. Very nice staff, they really look after you, some entertainment with the spring roll cooking class, visit to the fishing and the cave.
Halong Bay is of course touristy, plenty of boats out there, but still very worth a visit, it is a beautiful spot. Just the drive to Halong bay was an experience we saw many of the postcard motives, a water-buffalo, ducks, chicken on the back of the motorbike.
