A Secret to Tell: Bhaya Cruise On-Board Meals

The reason why we chose Bhaya among the numerous companies offering cruises along Halong Bay is because of the good reviews of the food that they serve, next to affordability of course. Lunch, breakfast and brunch the following day were all buffet while dinner was a five-course set menu.

Upon arrival, we were ushered to the dining area for the briefing and buffet lunch. The buffet spread was superb as the seafood were fresh and delicious.

Drinks were not included in the buffet but it wasn't exaggeratedly expensive as the common misconception in cruise ships.

For the set dinner menu, guests were given two choices for the main course -- Pan Fried Beef with Black Pepper Sauce or Pan Fried Fish with White Wine Passion Sauce. To be able to try both, DB decided to go for the fish while I had the beef meal.

Cream Pumpkin Soup

Steamed Prawns and White Mussels


Green Mango Salad with Shrimp

Pan Fried Beef with Black Pepper Sauce

Pan Fried Fish with White Wine Passion Sauce

Cream Mango Mousse

We arrived early for breakfast the next day so we had the whole dining area for ourselves for a while. While the other guests were still asleep, we were already stuffing ourselves with freshly-baked breads and fruits to prepare us for the activities for the day.

Exploring the Sung Sot Cave for three hours burned all the calories from the buffet breakfast and left us hungry as a bear. Good thing the staff prepared a sumptuous brunch before sailing back to Tuan Chau Marina where our service is waiting to transport us back to the city.

Service was outstanding (language barrier was still a challenge though especially when the manager was not around), accommodation was very comfortable and the great variety of food were enough reason to choose Bhaya Cruises. And this is one secret I'd gladly share with everyone!
