Dear Nhi, Thank you for your email. Please note shuttle bus only picks up and drops off in the hotel within Hanoi old quarter and if you are staying in a hotel outside the old quarter, you need to take a taxi to our office at 72 Hang Trong to join the tour. And in case you are in Hai Phong, you need to arrange the transfer on your own to the cruise's port. Best regards, Cindy (Ms.)

Dear Mr. Darren, Thank you so much for your contacting us. Starlight cruise does not include Ti Top Island on their cruising route. If you wish to visit Titop please consider Glory or Pelican cruise. Best regards,

We had a wonderful time on Starlight. The view is marvelous and the staff made our trip the best. Everyone was friendly and always looked after us. A bunch of activities were included such as caving, kayaking, swimming, cooking class, morning taichi, etc. If we had the chance, we would book 2 nights to have more time to relax and enjoy the view.

We booked 1 night on Starlight Cruise. The ship was clean and the cabin was spacious. Food was average. The activities were abundant but a bit too many. The attractions were crowded because almost all cruises came at the same time. Anyway, the scenery was spectacular.

Tery did a very good job. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. The trip to the floating fishing village was interesting. We learned much about the local life of the people here. Definitely worth your money.

The trip was well planned. Kayaking was the best activity. Mr. Lang was excellent tour guide who was always friendly and took care of us so well. 

More time for kayaking would be perfect.
