Asked by Abu 2 months, 3 weeks ago
Does the 4-hour journey from Hanoi to Halong and back have toilet stops? My wife has a condition that requires her to go every two hours. Secondly, is the surprising cave tiresome for the legs? My wife cannot walk or climb stairs too long. We prefer more swimming in the sea than hiking, cycling or kayaking. Thanks!

Dear Mr. Abu, Thank you for your inquiry and we are so happy to hear of your trip plan to Halong Bay. Please note that: - We now use expressway so it takes over 2.5 hours to get from Hanoi to Halong Bay. You can request for toilet stop which is in the middle of the way - The Surprise cave can be a bit of a challenge if your wife cannot climb - As Carina Cruise does not yet operate, can you consider other options please? I look forward to hearing from you! Melissa (Ms.)

Timely pick up from the hotel at Hanoi. Good bus (with wifi).

The cruise itself is just superb. Those mystical islands gliding past you in a timeless pace

Great room. Stayed on the top deck rooms with small balconies

Food:  Amazing. Should be the best food we ever had. You will be stuffed.

Crew: They would do anything to take care of us.

The day boat was large and clean. The safety standards were not compromised even once. Even if we took the small boat for 5 minutes, everyone had to wear the life jacket. They even had life jackets for the young one.

Drinks were a bit costly as expected. Water, tea, coffee should be included.

We really enjoyed this cruise. It was one of our highlights of Vietnam. There are plenty of options for cruising in Halong Bay but after seeing some of the other boats we were pleased with our choice.The cruise itself was superb including safety aspects. The 24 hour experience was well structured and organised. However, drinks on ship are too expensive. Anyway, I would definitely recommend you guy for the Halong Bay tour! Cheers.

We were lucky to take the cruise on a nice weather. Everything was excellent. The trip was really well-organized. The cabins were delightful, spic and span clean with en suite facillities.The catering service was beyond expectation, and service by all the staff was excellent.

More entertainment in the TV would be helpful

Our tour guide was really helpful, always took care of us. The meals, the cabin... were all great. However, you should be more flexible in pickup. Spend 1 additional hour due to other pickups. Overall a FANTASTIC MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE.

I am surprised at how good the guide's English is. Like a native!

The shuttle bus is quite uncomfortable, but more due to road conditions than driver's skill.

Peter Pan - the guide is very nice. We are glad we take the second floor room as it has much better view. Overall the trip is great and there is little to improve.
