"The cruise was splendid!"

Dining was rated 9 due to the brunch on the last day which seem to be rather normal in comparison to the lavish spread provided during breakfast, lunch and dinner.

"well organized"

The trip is well organized and activities are well planned to make a memorable trip. The staff are friendly and helpful.

The constant offer to order non-complimentary drink every meal made me a bit uncomfortable. Dining was a bit disappointing, I wish the cruise served more of Vietnam food than just fusion food with no nationality.

"Excellent"

The cruise was so great! Better than we could have hoped and the free food tour was a really great glimpse into Hanoian food culture.
The activities sometimes felt rushed and the Thai chi was cancelled the morning I wanted to do it.

"excellent cruise!"

The cruise was really excellent – our cabin was fantastic as we were upgraded to one of the suites on the boat. The rest of the cruise was also brilliant – the food was a very good indeed and the boat was newly fitted out to a high standard. The staff were also excellent and couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. The whole thing was really well organised

"Everything went smoothly"

We enjoyed our trip very much, we had an excellent room. I think we were upgraded? :) We wish we could have stayed longer. Overall, we liked it a lot, except for the last 2.5 hours from when we had to vacate the room and just stay at restaurant while the crew prepared the boat for the next passengers.… More

FAQs

Normally, the distance from Hanoi to Halong Bay is about 170 km. Shuttle Bus takes you around 3.5 hours, included haft-hour for break time from Hanoi to Halong Bay. If you go by private car, it takes around 3 hours.

On the other hand, there is another route which only takes you about 2.5 hours for travelling to Halong Bay. You can hire a car or buy a ticket of a VIP bus to travel from Hanoi city centre to Halong Bay through the new Hanoi - Hai Phong highway, which shortens the distance between Hanoi - Halong to about more than 150km.

However, there will be a fee for the new highway which is about 6.5 USD/turn/car and that is the reason why the price for transportation through this new route is a little bit higher than the old one.

Activities you can take part in during within a Cruise program is: Movie Night, Board Games, visiting Floating village, go fishing, cooking class, kayaking or swimming, biking, climbing… It depends on each cruise and the length of Cruise program as 02 days or 03 days. Please see more details in cruise itineraries.

Halong Bay is a very suitable place for honeymoon, wedding anniversary or birthday vacation. Depend on your budget, you can join a sharing cruise or take a private cruise.
