We stayed 2 days and 1 night on the Paloma and overall it was a memorable experience. The views of Ha Long Bay are spectacular. The vessel was clean and the guides and host, Hoang was very hospitable. The meals were pretty good. The first afternoon seemed to be crammed with activities from walking into a cave, kayaking and squid fishing. Some might prefer a more leisure and relaxed schedule, but everyone can chill after dinner. I would definitely recommend Paloma.
This cruise was far beyond my expectations. Quan, our guide was so nice and funny and gave us tips about the rest of Vietnam. Paloma really goes above and beyond to take you away from all the other boats. I was pleased with how few boats we saw during the cruise. The food was good and they far surpassed my expectation with providing me with substitutes because I don’t eat meat. The boat was very nice especially for the price. The activities were amazing. Kayaking, tai chi, spring roll making, fishing village visit, pearl farm visit. My favorite was a visit to the fishing village. Even though it was a little rainy and cloudy it was still so beautiful and we enjoyed it very much.
This trip was a really great experience. The staff was wonderful and takes very good care of you. The food and activities were great. The only downside (for me) was the schedule they had for us was very rigorous. It felt like every minute of our day was scheduled. Obviously you don't have to do every activity, but just some food for thought if you're looking for a more laid back experience. Overall, still very highly recommended, boat and staff we're great!
