What our guests say:

We had a great time on our 2 nights, 3 day Ha Long Bay cruise on board Perla Dawn sails. We had a total of 16 people across 3 young families. The rooms were very comfy, the food was great and the staff including Harry and Kenny were very helpful. We especially enjoying our day trip where we sailed south leaving much of the busyness of Ha Long bay. Here we enjoyed bike riding, kayaking and swimming. We would highly recommend this cruise.

Ambrose G Wonderful experience 2 night cruise

We have just finished a 3 day/2 night trip with Perla Dawn Sails and highly recommend it. We travelled in a large group with 10 kids (from 13 down to 3) and we all loved it. Great rooms with balconies, good food and fantastic friendly helpful staff (the kids loved Harry!)....not to mention the incredible experience of Ha Long Bay itself. We nearly didn’t do it as at first it seems a big expense, but it was worth every penny! Thank you Perla Dawn Sails!
