About Nostalgia Cruise

Set sail in early February 2023, Nostalgia promises a deluxe cruising experience with top-notch service. With only 10 cabins, the cruise pays much attention to details not only of the interior and exterior but also of the service quality.

There are 4 room categories spreading out on 2 decks. All are well-equipped with an air-conditioned, mini bar, ocean-view bathtub and amenities, and a balcony with a table and chair. What could be better than taking a favorite cocktail or glass of wine and enjoying the spectacular view with your loved one from your private balcony?

The ship includes a spacious restaurant where you can savor a bunch of featured dishes coming from Vietnam or Western nations. On the same deck, you are invited to dip into the cool water of the swimming pool and feast your eyes with second-to-none scenery.

Sundeck is the best place to kick back and watch the dawn and dusk while the ship cruises through thousands of limestone karst. That is not to mention the serene atmosphere at night and in the early morning with the soothing Taichi session.

Nostalgia Cruise brings you from Halong bay to Lan Ha Bay - from the renowned heritage site to the "forgotten heaven" with magnificent mountains. With 2 days 1 night and 3 days 2 nights itinerary, visitors are ensured to visit the most highlighted spots of the bay and participate in no shortage of leisure and recreation activities.

Dear Winnie, Thank you for your email! We are so happy to hear from you! As there is no glass door or shower curtain in the Nostalgia cruise's bathroom, you can only use a tower to clean the floor if it's wet. Or please consider another cruise that has a separate bathtub and rain shower. For example you can consider Doris Cruise (https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/doris-cruise.html) as an alternative. Should you have other questions, please let me know. Best regards, Cindy

Dear Brian, Thank you for your question! I would like to inform you that due to the Government policies, all of the cruises will be far from the pier. Due to that condition, you will need to take a tender to the boat instead. These tenders are included, and no extra charge required. Should you need any further assistance with your booking, please do not hesitate to contact me. Best regards, Quan

Hi! We have a flight departing from Hanoi at 5:40pm. If I book the 2D/1N cruise for a family of 7, will we be back in time to catch our flight? Thank you in advance.

Dear Christina, Thank you for your questions and we are so happy to hear from you! After the cruise, you will arrive in the Hanoi Old Quarter at around 2:30 - 3:00 PM. And it takes 45-60 minutes to get from the Hanoi Old Quarter to the Noi Bai Airport. So there will still be enough time to catch your flight, please no worries. Or you can also fly from Cat Bi Airport which is closer to Halong Bay. If you prefer a direct transfer Halong - Noi Bai Airport/ Cat Bi Airport, please let me know! Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us! Best regards, Lily

If you intend to explore Lan Ha Bay, don't hesitate to book a cruise with Nostalgia. The boat is very pretty with a special luxurious design. There are not too many passengers on each departure so you will enjoy the trip in your own way. David took care of us all the time.

All we expected, Nostalgia fulfilled. Facilities are first class. Great crew and we couldn't have asked for better service from them. Be greeted at the port with a cold towel and welcome drink. The scenery of Halong Bay urged us to board the ship to experience the wonder immediately. Luxurious design, spacious cabin. Transparent glass doors allow us to enjoy the view of the bay from the bed. There's plenty to do on the itinerary, both relaxing and exploring. The staff provided good service. Hardy is one of the managers and he treated us like friends. His humor created a friendly atmosphere for all passengers. Our guide in the cooking and tai chi class (I can't remember his name) was amazing - one of the memorable experiences of our trip. Can't recommend this cruise enough.

We were treated like valued guests. Good food and plenty of choices for vegetarians and non-vegetarians. Creative drinks but need to pay. Excursion was well arranged, a bit rushed but to ensure we didn't get bored or have nothing to do. We thank Jimmy for taking us to visit Cat Ba island. He speaks English fluently and is knowledgeable. All staff are excellent. If you need help, just tell them, they are ready to help you. I really appreciate their kindness in helping me arrange a secret proposal in my room. It was a wonderful experience for my couple on the Nostalgia boat. We can't ask for more. Thank you Nostalgia ship and staff.

We booked the Queen Suite room. As soon as we entered the room, we were impressed by its size. All interiors are luxurious with large beds, bathtubs, tables and chairs, and balconies overlooking the bay. We were served delicious meals throughout the trip. We especially like Hue dishes. Spring rolls in the cooking class were also really delicious. Seafood dishes are also very special. Vietnamese food has exceeded my expectations. The staff did their jobs well. During the excursions, the tour guide answered all our questions. During meals, the staff in the F&B department took great care of us. The Tai Chi lesson was also very fun early in the morning. We especially thank Kent for helping us a lot. We had a 2-night itinerary, quite cramped and rushed, but luckily, we were able to see all the beautiful scenery around Lan Ha Bay. We were looking forward to kayaking and it didn't disappoint us. If you don't want to paddle, bamboo boats are your alternative. The sparkling scene at night...and the boat anchored at the sleeping spot. Overall there was nothing to regret booking this boat.
