Dear Anita Nici, Thank you for your question. If you prefer the less touristy area and a modern style cruise, I would suggest you cruises to Lan Ha Bay such as Capella, Scarlet Pearl, Ambassador Signature, Stellar of the Seas, Genesis Luxury Regal, etc. In fact, there are lots of cruises at different price ranges, so it would be better if you share more details about your request. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Annie (Ms.)

Thus, from Haiphong - Halong, we can pick you up from Haiphong Airport at an extra cost. To meet the cruise schedule, please make sure to be at the Haiphong Airport at around 10:30 AM for the pick-up as the travel time is normally 45-60 minutes. May I also know your specific trip dates so we can check availability for you? Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us! Best regards, Lily

Hi , is it ok if we arrive in Ha Long by ourselves (we are a group of 5 , we would like to use our own taxi who will pick us up from our Intercontinental West Lake hotel at 9am and we will arrrive in Ha Long at 12pm before the check in time at 12.54pm) instead of using your services. We notice that you only pick up at Old Quarters but we would like to stay in 5 star hotels away from the Old quarters. Thank you.

Hi! I would like to book a trip for 4 adults (2 rooms), departing on 29th Dec 2022. We prefer a 3d2n trip. Will Elite of the Seas provide such a trip on that date? Or will there be any other luxury cruises providing 3d2n trip on the same date?

Asked by kim yoon hwan 3 months, 3 weeks ago
Dear, Is it possible for four people with infants? The date of birth is as follows. One was born in March 2017, and the other was born in April 2019. The maximum number of people in the reservation system is 2 adults and 1 child, but it seems that you can make a reservation for 4 people, so I'm asking because I'm confused. In other words, should I understand that 1 child is forc and the rest pays an additional 50%?

Hi there, I'm interested in booking Elite of the Seas 3D/2N cruise for 30th Nov - 2 Dec. As such, I just had a few questions: 1) Has the Elite of the Seas cruise started sailing yet? If not, when will it start? 2) Are there currently any other bookings for this dates? Just want to confirm that the cruise will sail on these dates. 3) The day 2 itinerary mentions "Early Evening Back to the Stellar of the seas cruises for sleeping area" - is this a mistake? Does it mean Elite of the Seas cruise instead since it is the one I'm booking?

Dear Ms. Sandra, Thank you for your email. My name is Jolie from Halong Bay Tours department and I am very glad to assist you with your trip. We understand your concerns, however, this is the low season in Halong bay but almost of the cruises still operate everyday. December is the high season and especially, Elite of the Seas is a very hot cruise so I believe it is impossible that they cannot run because of lack of bookings. You do not need to worry about it. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Jolie (Ms.)

The warm welcome from the staff put me at ease immediately. They spent most of their time looking after us. Make sure you don't miss anything during your trip. Recommend staying 2 nights to fully enjoy Halong Bay.
The attractions were like a tourist trap where you have to buy something. Kayaking was not proper at 7:30 when all passengers were sleepy. The tight schedule forced some of our guests to skip it. The Wifi connection was bad but understandable.

A wonderful trip that we will never forget. All called Elite of the Seas… The crew managed the job very well. All of us tourists are divided into groups, each group will have its own butler. Our butler is Antony, a kind and experienced person we met. He cared about us throughout the trip. Even made sure we had good health for the tours by preparing sandwiches for us. The manager named Rechal did a great job from the time we checked in until the afternoon we returned to Hanoi. Everything was under his control. During the tour, we explored caves, boated, squid fishing, swam, enjoyed meals, and played live piano. I'm happy to know that everything was included, so you didn't have to pay anything extra. Except for the drinks, but not worth the bother. In terms of price, Elite's rooms are more expensive than other cruise lines, but if we could stay in a more spacious and luxurious room, we would have nothing to complain about.
The weather was a bit rainy, which meant our outdoor activities were limited. It was beyond the crew's control anyway. Not a big deal. I can also enjoy the ship as an alternative option.

All the crew were great. The cruise manager led activities very well ensuring they took place on time. They all worked very well and hard. I think most of the cost we paid was for the service, but it was really worth it. The ship was also amazing. The restaurant provided a diverse menu and delicious dishes. Really recommend this ship!
