  1. Robert S

    From the time we left our hotel in Hanoi until the time we got back, everything with Sena was top-notch.  The people on board are amazing. They pay attention to your every need and are very flexible. We would tell anyone who wants a first-class experience to go on this trip. Sarah (Hang) was so great, and her service and kindness made us very happy. We’d love to come back again soon! Love everything!

  2. Louis K

  5. Saul J

    Sena Cruise was fantastic. Both the food and the activities were nicely thought out. We had fantastic tour guides, Kent and Man, on both days of our 2-night trip. They were simply amazing. On our second day, we boarded a day boat, which was a lot of fun. Food was also excellent. We’d absolutely recommend Sean Cruise for future visit.
