We were picked up from our Hanoi hotel by a large luxury mini van and taken to the Paradise hotel.
We were then taken to the Paradise Luxury boat. It’s a nice boat with charming fixtures. I appreciate we were only on 2 nights but with our two large suitcases there was very little space in the cabin. It was also very dark but you don’t spend a lot of time in there!
The restaurant and food was really nice and lots of choice, however just appreciate Vietnam time!!
You are taken to different parts of the bay by a smaller boat. Being on 2 nights gave us the chance to go further into the bay and see the floating village, which was fascinating.
My family and I cruised with Paradise Luxury 4. We are very happy with the service. All the staff are very friendly, Marinel gave an excellent service even if it’s her last day. We are goibg to tell our friends about this very nice experience. We will be back!
