Dear Mr. Gerry Baker, Thank you very much for your questions, please find answers as followed: 1/ The double bed in Signature Suite Cabin is more than 220cm long thus it definitely fits you. 2/ Emperor Cruise does not offer free pick-up and drop-off in Hanoi. The rate for shuttle bus round trip Hanoi - Halong - Hanoi is $40/ person and it will pick you up and drop you off at hotels or addresses in Hanoi Old Quarter. 3/ The number of guests depends on each travel date and the maximum capacity is 20 adults for 10 cabins.

Dear Mr. John, Thank you for your email and in this case, you will need one way private car from Hanoi airport to Halong and the return trip, you could join our shuttle bus transfer. As the transfer time from Hanoi airport to Halong is around 4 hour per one way transfer thus you may need to book your flight as earliest as possible as if you are late, the cruise can not wait for you. All cruises of us will need to leave the pier at around 12.00 - 12.30PM as latest. Thanks and best regards, Sunny (Ms)

Dear Ms. Sha, Thank you so much for your contacting us. Please notice that our shuttle cost only includes the way from the cruise to Hanoi center which is around 30km far from Hanoi airport. Thus, you will need a taxi or private car transfer if you want to go directly from the pier to there. Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to ask. Best regards, Sunny

Dear Ms. Ayumi Mugitani, Thank you so much for your contacting us and I am so sorry as our shuttle bus can not drop you off at Haiphong airport thus you may need a private transfer instead. It is around more than 1-hour transfer from Halong to Haiphong airport and the cost is US$ 60 per way by private 4 seat car. By the way, we travel by normal road not express road. Thanks for your kind notice and understanding! May I know when would you like to travel thus I could check availability and return to you with more details. Thank you! Kind regards, Sunny (Ms)

I have been to Halong Bay 3 times, and every time surprised me. Compared to the last trip, many new cruises were launched. I chose Emperor Cruise for my latest trip due to fewer cabins. I was looked after thoroughly by the cruise staff. Enjoyed my private space during the trip. The food was fantastic and the schedule had a nice balance between physical activities and relaxing time. Highly recommended!

Beautiful boat. The State suite has an excellent view. 10 rooms were perfect, not too crowded. The itinerary was enjoyable with a variety of activities such as hiking to the cave, kayaking, and taking a rowing boat. Vovinam and cooking class were interesting.

Crowded attractions.

The cruise theme was so cozy and traditional, I loved it so much!

The onboard activities for exercise (gym) and relaxation (reading, exhibition) were great. So I suggest more activities for entertainment like movies, more games for entertainment please.

We really enjoyed our 3D2N stay on Emperor cruise, the service was outstanding and food was good – generous servings and activities were so varied and well organized. I found the balance between relaxing and playing! Suggestion you can consider: more Board games / ping pong... games on board for evening time!
