    My wife and I had the pleasure of cruising with Signature Cruise for three days and two nights and we had a great time. Vinh, whose job title escapes me, is a real hospitality professional in every sense of the word. His attention to detail and quest for excellence is a real joy for all the guests. The cruise itself was great. Ha Long Bay is breathtaking. Nothing I can say will do it justice. If you are planning to visit Ha Long Bay, you should book with Signature Cruises. The food was excellent, the level of cooking and presentation was unexpected and very appreciated. Our time on the boat was relaxing and well worth it. The staff was attentive and very professional. Sitting on the balcony off our room drinking coffee and watching the stunning landscape in the morning was just unreal. Our cruise on Ha Long was a highlight in a trip filled with highlights.

    I have had a great experience on the Signature Cruise together with my partner. We were greeted friendly by the crew on arrival. Then we could immediately sit down for an extensive lunch. Our guide Ving (a very funny and also nice guide) - together with his crew - made sure that we did not fall short. In addition to a nice experience on the boat, the team also provided a nice program. You're not bored so What I also find important is that the rooms are clean and tidy. This room was perfect. Highly recommended when you are in Halong Bay !!!

    Very friendly and professional staff start all the way from the booking experience, the transfer journey and the Cruise at very reasonable price. I have booked this trip for the celebration of anniversary and birthday of my wife. The staff helped to prepare a very nice birthday cake for us and also a bunch of roses for my wife. The staff also helped to arrange a surprise to present the birthday cake with fireworks candles to my wife during dinner and she is very happy with the arrangement! Initially I have booked with the Athena Cruise, but the staff have suggested us to switch to Signature Cruise (same group) due to some large tour group have booked the same cruise on the same day which my affect our celebration. We agreed to the arrangement and the staff is very nice to give us an complimentary upgrade to the largest elite family suite which features large private balcony all to us and with complimentary wine. The Cruise run exactly to the itinerary with nothing less then what they represent, everything was pleasant and on time. Food was fantastic, presentation was good and delicious. Bed is very comfortable and the bath room come with a very nice jacuzzi! The only thing I notice is that the some USB port in the Limousine is not really working, maybe the staff can do something about that to give more complete experience to the guest. Otherwise, well done for all Signature Athena Crew and special thanks to Ms. Harley for helping out on all the arrangement pre-cruise and fantastic customer service from the Cruise Manager Megan and her team! Also thanks one team member from the hanoi office who rush a the way to us this afternoon after our drop off at the hotel and give us a small Wooden Signature Cruise Ship Souvenir! Will definitely come back next time for the 3 days trip to enjoy more of the hospitality!
