The hotel was nice. We arrived unexpectedly, and they did their best to accommodate our group. The food was OK, the view of the bay was pretty cool. Hats off to AmaWaterways for getting us set up on such short notice.

Simple enough, and we jigged for a while as we chatted about anything that came to mind. A few of the other guests trickled down to where we were and before long the lower deck seemed to be ...
... amusement being the good geographers we were. The weather was still cloudy so we seized the day with happy hour and had some cocktails on the deck as we cruised through the islands. The waiter even brought us our cocktails so we didn't even need to move, what a life! Did you know there around is 1969 islands in Halong Bay? We put the anchor down in a sheltered area and jumped overboard for a swim in the sea, it was surprisingly warm and refreshing! Lilly even came ...
