What our guests say:

My brother and I did the 2 days, 1 night cruise with Perla Dawn Sails earlier this month and we had a splendid experience at the sea. We were picked up from our hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter in a luxurious limousine van and brought to Cat Hai Port where we boarded Perla Dawn Sails after a short briefing. We enjoyed the activities planned for us during the two days as well as the spread of meals served on board. In fact I'd like to mention that I have an allergy to squid and shell fish which I made the company aware of at the time of booking. The chef and the staff were well informed of my food restrictions and made sure relevant and delicious substitues were offered to me; it just goes to show how much they care for their guests and their well-being. Our cabin was clean and comfortable providing scenic views of the limestone formations from our private balcony.

My 2 days, 1 night cruise on Perla Dawn Sails is unforgetful and I'd strongly recommend booking your cruise on this 5-star luxury on your next visit.
