Dear He Yun Jui, Thank you for your email. The cruise organizer can arrange to arrange the bus for you one day earlier, however, please note that they will drop you off at the cruise pier and you will have to take a taxi to your hotel. You can book hotels in Tuan Chau Marina which is close to the waiting lounge, or a hotel in Bai Chay area, which is around 20-minute drive. As I have checked, the Junior Suite connecting rooms are still available and our offer is US$ 740 for 2 Junior Suite cabins with free shuttle service. Please consider and let me know soon if you want to book it. Best regards, Annie (Ms.)

Regarding your question about Ambassador Cruise, the Deluxe Triple cabin will have one extra bed for 3 persons. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries.

Hello, We are a family of 3 travelling on Aug 4-5. What room type/price are available? Does it include transfers from Hanoi? I heard that Ha Long Bay tourist attractions are pretty crowded. Does Hermes Cruise make a point to avoid the crowds (arriving before or after other cruises' tourists)? Thanks for your help.

Dear Sue, Thank you for your email. My name is Annie from Halong Bay Tours department and I am very glad to assist you with your trip. For your family of 3, you can consider Junior Suite Triple at US$ 555/cabin or Senior Suite Triple at US$ 600/cabin with free shuttle bus round trip. I am sorry that the cruises will have similar itinerary, like time for meals and time for activities thus I am afraid that they will have the same time for activities. If you want a less touristy route, maybe you can consider cruise to Lan Ha Bay. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Annie (Ms.)

A family-friendly cruise! We traveled with 2 little girls and every crew was super friendly and helpful. They took care of our meals and made sure we felt comfortable and enjoyed every activity. The set menu diner was 10 out of 10!

The boat is luxurious and nicely decorated. We booked 2 Junior Suites on the lower deck but the view was amazing. Food was abundant and all included. Drinks were charged. The excursions were great yet a bit rushed. Recommend everyone to book 2 nights.

What an experience!! Hermes Cruise provides a bunch of activities and good food. The staff provided great hospitality. We stayed for 2 nights and had a day boat trip to isolated areas which was amazing. Would suggest Hermes Cruise to my friends. Thank you!

Activities were varied and the view was amazing, although there were quite a lot of people during the excursions. The ship was well maintained. Food was average and needed more options for vegetarians. Wifi was weak.

The boat was nice and clean. Our room had a large window and a private balcony. Lam is a nice guy who provides timely support to us. Food was great yet drinking water should be provided throughout the meal.

Such an enjoyable holiday. We were a family with our 2yrs girl. The staff was very helpful and willing to help. Our cabin is comfortable and full of amenities needed. The excursions were crowded but definitely worth seeing. Halong Bay was incredible and everyone should visit once.
