Mon Chéri Cruise

Thuc Nguyen is the owner of Mon Chéri Cruises. As he grew up in the countryside of Quang Ninh province, he had a dream that one day he would be able to help the underprivileged villagers by providing them with jobs. This dream came true. After having worked in tourism for almost 18 years, the magnificence of Halong Bay had inspired him to start up a cruise company named Paloma Cruise. Soon after, he built a sister cruise - Mon Chéri Cruise. The cruise was launched in early 2018 and it aims to provide high-end service and remarkable holiday experience for travellers. Guests are guaranteed a remarkable experience; exploring the hidden charms of the bay, taking in the stunning scenery from the comfort of the ship, and visiting pristine beaches that you can find nowhere else.

I've actually personally never stayed overnight on a boat before or been on any sort of cruise so was a bit anxious about what exactly to expect. What I didn't expect was quite the high standards of the Mon Cheri cruise boat. It really was lovely for a fairly small cruise boat. The rooms are clean, crisp and tastefully simple. We had a room on a lower deck and were concerned about our view, I actually think this was much better than being on the upper deck even! There is also a bar which serves very tasty cocktails, often on fairly good deals so if you do decide you want a change of scenery, that's an option. The drinks are expensive by Vietnam standards - extremely so in fact however, they are on par with London sort of costs and with most of it imported, this can only really be expected. The customer service from everyone both on board and away from the boat was really great. The balance in general between activities and time to relax was perfect too and the scenery of course, breathtaking! The food was also stand out amazing from the buffets available at breakfast and lunch times to the cooked set menu. This was one of our highlights of the trip. I'd certainly say however, as sad as we were to leave that 2 days and 1 night was the perfect time.

Highly recommend this cruise. Beautiful scenery, very nice cabin, great staff, food, but one night would be enough.

I am half Vietnamese and it is my first time back to Vietnam since leaving the country at age 6, in 1973. Our 2 night cruise with Mon Cherie was filled with beauty, culture, excitement and a 5 Star experience. Mr. Lam, Jenny and the staff treated us like family. Mr. Lam and his team are exceptional in hospitality service. The rooms are elegant, spacious and holds a beautiful view. The food was delicious and plentiful. The off boat excursions were fun and informative on cultural life and history. I look forward to returning to Mon Cheri Cruise on my next visit. Thank you Mr. Lam, Jenny and staff for such wonderful memories!

This was one of the highlights in our trip in Vietnam. Sailing Halong Bay on an amazing sea view cabin is definitely an experience that we recommend. Mr Lam (Customer Service) was very kind and the rest of the staff was very helpful and friendly too.
