"Nice Cruise"

Very nice, clean, and newer ship. Staff is extremely helpful and cheerful. The first night, we were placed at the rear cabins of the bottom level which was very noisy at night time when we tried to sleep (due to generator being in the back of the ship). Jacky the cruise manager was so nice to have relocate… More

The room was amazing and comfortable with a beautiful private balcony area. The view from the room was excellent. The staff were also excellent, especially Jackie, Queyen and the kind man who went out of his way to help me book a hotel for our return. He let me use his personal Internet and his personal… More

I don't really have anything negative to say. I did think the food would be more buffet style but it was nice to try new things so a set menu wasn't a bad thing.

Cruise as to cut short due to typhoon. Food quantity was not enough for us but we raised the concerns at dinner and was quickly addressed.

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.
