Cruising with Indochina Sails- “Spoil yourself - you won't be disappointed”

We have just returned from a 2 night 3 day cruise on Indochina Sails 1.The boat had 24 cabins of which there were only 11 passengers on the 1st night. As soon as we were collected from the terminal the treatment began, smiles and assistance where needed. Once on board we were given our room & we were delighted with it. Huge bed, room of good size ensuite was also large with one of the biggest showers I have seen. Everything about the room we loved including the view from the large windows, although my wife wanted to have the A/C dropped lower but it wouldn't go below a pre set temp, which I found fine. Once we had checked into the rooms we were given lunch which consisted of 7 courses - Unreal! Prawns, calamari among the courses. The day then went to adventure with activities planned & enjoyed by all. Back on the boat its time to freshen up after which staffs replenish the room with clean towels etc. By dinner time the 11 of us decided it was time for all of us to get together so we arranged for the staff to combine the tables and as a result we had a fabulous night of fun especially during happy hours (9-11pm). The following day is spent on a day boat whilst those that only stayed for a night were eventually taken back to port & replaced with a much larger group. We spent the day enjoying other activities, all of which were great, and enjoyed another 7 course lunch. The entire trip was wonderful and I would recommend that if you have the time to do the 3 day 2 night cruise as it gives you time to really enjoy the facilities of the boat. All the staff on board were a delight & always made us feel welcome. They gave us plenty of information on the places visited & always had a cool drink on hand for the passengers. There was only one downfall with the trip, which is nothing to do with Indochina sails, & that is the distance from Hanoi about 4hrs by transport provided & that is another reason to do that extra night. The only cost on top of the original booking is for alcohol & soft drinks which are at a very reasonable cost.
