Dear Lia, Please be advised that insurance for the cruises are bought by the cruise owner but not the insurance for guests. Thus if you are travelling, you can contact some insurance company to have your own insurance. Thank you very much! Best regards, Bonnie

Dear Fern, Thank you for your email! We are so happy to hear from you! Please be advised from Ninh Binh to Halong, you can choose two options below: - Private car: USD 95 for 2 persons - Shuttle bus: USD 25/person We can provide with both options but please understand if you choose the bus option, you might have to wait at the hotel lobby in a while (from 7.15 - 8.15am) as the distance between the hotels/homestay in Ninh Binh is quite far from each other as well as not too easy to get to each place. Best regards, Cindy

Hello, we are a family of 4, with 2 young adults. (Q1) We haven’t booked accommodation in Hanoi yet, (but we are there for a very short time and are looking at hotels closer to the airport because we then have to fly back home ). Do you pick up from any area in Hanoi? (Q2) My husband is tall, we are wondering what type of transportation (type of bus, and how comfortable is it) do you use travelling to Halong bay? Regards, Katrina Roman

Answered by Jolie 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Dear Katrina Roman, Thank you for your question. I am very glad to assist you with your trip. I would like to answer your question as follows: (1) The bus can only pick you up from the Hanoi Old Quarter area located in Hanoi center and is around 45-60 minutes driving from the airport. If you stay near the airport, you will need to take a taxi to the Hanoi Old quarter to get on the bus. (2) The cruise will use a normal minibus (29-seater car) for transfer. However, they also offer the Fuso 18-seat which is more comfortable, thus you can consider it. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Jolie (Ms.)

Dear Calypso, We would like to book a tour this summer (1 night in August). Our family has 3 persons (me, my husband and our daughter who is 12). We would like to share 1 cabin because our daughter does not want to sleep alone in a cabin. Can you tell us if that is possible? Looking forward hearing from you, Anneke

The vessel is nice and well equipped. The food was okay, more varied if possible. The ship docked far from the port so it took a long transfer by a tender boat to get onboard. The view was nice.

Me and my girlfriend had a 1-night trip with Calypso. The ship was well furnished and our room was comfortable. The jacuzzi pool on the deck was nice. The view was stunning and peaceful.

The overall experience in Calypso Cruise was nice. Beautiful setting, well-furnished amenities, friendly and attentive staff, average food.

The hard part was a four hour drive from Hanoi. It was long but unavoidable if you want to set foot in Halong. 

Food can be better.
