Maya Cruises in Hanoi, Vietnam
Your travel-induced blogger turns to thoughts of comfort traveling. After several strenuous quantity trips, I have started to ponder the art of western style of traveling, a.k.a. arrive, divide, and conquer! This style of travel actually is more of taking time to do a REALLY leisurely pace of soaking in an experience. I found out from some of my European friends that they prefer traveling a minimum of two weeks to a month to explore a place! I admit that this is sort of a taboo for typical Asian travelers (i.e. me), because being culturally born and bred to be fast walkers, fast eaters, and fast talkers, we also tend to lean towards the idea of being fast explorers. 

Massive thanks to the Maya Cruise Team for inviting me to collaborate with them on this truly invigorating and progressive travel project, I’ve had the chance to explore Hanoi at a slow snail’s pace. I have never experienced this kind of travel, so much to my surprise, this first-time experience was an absolutely amazing eye-opening exposure! My whole face was aquiver with eagerness as soon as the private luxury van of Maya Cruises parked in front of our quaint hotel. I was already thinking to myself, “what and how does it feel like to travel with less haste and more indulgence?” Maya Cruises, a Halong Luxury Cruise Trip is, without doubt, the answer to indulgence.

Though still young and promising, if you have the chance to hop aboard the Maya Cruise, you’ll be happy to discover that this Vietnamese cruise ship is beyond brilliant. Never have I ever encountered such hospitality, respect, and total customer service in Vietnam. I always say to my friends that in Asia, the most respectful and polite people you’ll ever meet are the Japanese and Nepali, but then again, so are the folks from this cruise ship! They are an absolute class act when it comes to being so earnest, sociable, accommodating, and courteous. This quality alone sets them apart and can easily stand on its own as one of the best qualities of the Maya Cruise. 100....199% Customer Service Guaranteed. 

I am spilling the beans on the blow by blow account on what happens on a 2 day 1-night cruise, care of the Maya Cruise team. But before I go there, I’d like to share with you some whys and wherefores for choosing Maya Cruise. There are many reasons, but these are my favorites.

1st World Quality of Service for an Affordable Price
It’s true. From the pick-up van, the cabins, suite, food fares, and activities, you can really differentiate Maya Cruises compared to the others in Vietnam. Everything has been well thought of up to the smallest of details, and you can feel the passion spent building each piece of the puzzle. I am equally surprised to know for the price being paid, the excellence is more than that. The quality of service shared to the folks-turned-friends and families in the cruise ship gives everyone a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Hanoi. So dear friends, don’t forget to provide generous tips as well, okay? :-)

Culturally Enriching Itineraries
Unlike some of the inter-country, or colossal size cruise ships in Asia, some of them already being considered as the best cruise line in Asia, Maya Cruise is still far from that. Nevertheless, they compensate that by providing a wealth of diversions for every mood. It’s actually a place that combines the western style of traveling and Asian way of doing things. Imagine, 3D/2N or 2D/1N of “western style” of snail’s pace? It’s possible if it’s a culturally enriching itinerary such as the one here in Maya Cruise. Be it Cat Ba Island, Lan Ha Bay, and Halong Bay, you might be interested to try out some cycling around a traditional Viet Hai village; or a cooking class for a traditional Vietnamese dish; or maybe even some Tai Chi during dawn, seeing the beautiful Halong Bay while you meditate; and perhaps even do some squid fishing at night (my personal favorite!). The activities are small and special, which makes everything more meaningful and comforting.

Feast-like Food Fares
I gained several pounds of fat (and hopefully muscle!) after my overnight cruise with Maya. Hahaha! From welcome drinks every time you get back to the ship, to fancy five-course dinner, to a breakfast buffet, heavy lunch meals, and happy hour choices, the food is fit for a king! Simple yet decorative plating. While you cruise around the iconic Halong Bay, you get to enjoy deliciously surreal food fares and outstanding customer service. The waiters are very attentive, ready to attend to your every need. And did I mention, they offer 24/7 happy hour? Oh yes, no need to say more, right?

Overall, I am sure that if Christopher Columbus was in Vietnam at this point in time, he will join me in enjoying this cruise trip with Maya Cruises. Lol. But, it's better to buy this kind of experience than to splurge on expensive things. This style of travel is something that is not only unique, novel, and luxurious, it’s something that even fast explorers can truly enjoy. Amidst the emerald waters and the towering limestone islands of Hanoi, it’s time to experience finding yourself through comfort traveling. This designated World Heritage Site is an ethereal beauty best discovered through the intimate revelation via the Maya Cruise. Thank you, Maya Cruises!
