On our HaLong Bay page, you'll see links to a number of threads discussing different tour providers -- from memory Tropical Sails gets a few mentions.

It is well known for quality cruises using boats with about 15 cabins, female staff and purpose designed with some of the most current safety equipment.

If you want a larger boat, 50 cabins, look to the Emeraude.

Cheap boat cruises cut corners - deck hands doing the cooking; you sleep on unknown hotels on Cat Ba island; etc.

What you pay is directly proportional to the cruise quality.
