Great Personalize service. Thumbs up!

We did the 2D1N junk cruise with Alova Gold from 11th to 12th April 2012 recently. Overall, we were rather satisfied with the cruise, guide, meals, activities… The minibus transfer from Hanoi (and bk) was included free (which is nice)… no problem with the bus at all… Our guide, Nghe (aka Peter) followed us right from hotel picked up, ship boarding and during the cruise. So overall, they provided us wth great personalize service. He even remembered that we requested a quiet room and arranged it for us a room away from ship motor room. Food-wise, not bad at all, all have more than enough to go around… (but some of the caucasion tour-mates should hv requested western meals as they seems didn’t like the vietnamese crusine so much)… However, only tea/coffee at breakfast meal is free… the cruise charges almost US$2 for a hot Vietnamese green-tea (from tea bag) during lunch/dinner (which is very steep)… It would be really nice if they could provide us plain water during meal… which they didn’t… only a small bottle (really small) bottle was provided in the room… Day one – TiTop Island/ Kayaking Day two – Surprise cave Both days activities was nice… Some of the people whom we met on the cruise were doing 3D2N (their 3rd is our 2rd)… on our second day, they basically stay on the ship doing nothing (Free and easy)…

-Bring your own mineral water. -Dont order beverage during meal (except bf) -Request fr quiet room (Room 8 is just beside ship motor)… We got room 1 which is furthest away. – For caucasian, try request western meal – Try leave your baggage in your hotel, rather then bring onto cruise (minibus, cruise etc will be really packed) – Only order cocktail during one-for-one happy-hour promotion
