Is everything included in the quoted price for the 3 day 2 night Bai Tu Long cruise? I can guess that drinks and transfers are extra, but is everything else (food, activities, etc.) included? Also, is it possible to arrange for transport from our Hanoi hotel to the boat, and then to the airport after the cruise? Lastly, are the double beds the same as King Size beds or Queen Size beds?

Dear Russell, Thank you for your inquiry. I'm glad to assist you with your trip. The new expressway has been constructed now and some cruises change to go by this road already but please kindly note that Swan cruises still go the normal way, don't go on the highway. The bus will arrive at Bac Ninh crossroad around 3:30 pm (for 2 days or 3 days is the same). If you have the flight around 5:00 pm so you can stop here then take a taxi and go directly to the airport, otherwise you can come back to the old quarter and get a taxi later. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any inquiries. Best regards, Amber (Ms.)

Dear Ms. Pang Sia Lee, Thank you for your email and question. The shuttle bus will pick you up from your hotel around 7:45am and 8:15am - this applies for hotels in Hanoi Old Quarter only. If you stay outside of the Old Quarter you can take a taxi to our office at 72 Hang Trong for pick up. If you have any other questions please let me know!

Dear WJ, 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. I am sorry to inform you that Swan Cruise is fully booked on October 1 already. May I ask if you can change your trip to a day later, October 02? If yes, I can surely arrange the cruise for you. The cost is US$ 480/Deluxe cabin, 2 people + Free shuttle bus round trip. Or just in case you cannot change your travel date, I would like to suggest you our Carina Cruise for alternative: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/carina-cruise/3-days-2-nights.html The cost is the same: US$ 480/Deluxe cabin, 2 people + Free shuttle bus round trip. I hope my suggestion would work or if you have any other idea in mind, please feel free to let us know. Looking forward to hearing from you soon. Best regards, Jolie (Ms.)

Dear Mr. Jodie, 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. I am sorry that the shuttle bus cannot drop you off at the airport. May I ask if your flight is domestic or international? - If it is domestic, you can get dropped off at the Bac Ninh Crossroad and then take a taxi to the airport. Or we can arrange for you a private car a the cost of US$ 30 for 2 persons. You will reach the airport at around 4:30 - 5:00 PM. - If it is international, please kindly consider taking a private car from the pier straight to the airport. The cost is US$ 80 for 2 persons and you will reach the airport at around 3:30 - 4:00 PM. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries.

Dear Beverly Pascual, Thank you for your question and I am happy to help you answer it! Yes, from Hai Phong Airport, it takes around 2,5 hours to get to the pier and we can arrange you a private sedan car with the cost of US$ 60/car/way. However if you want to save cost please fly into Hanoi and take the free bus that departs from Hanoi Old Quarter area between 7:45am and 8:15am. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Jolie (Ms.)

Dear Ms. Rachelle, Thank you for your email. As far as I know you are a family of 5 thus you will need 1 double/twin + 1 triple cabin for your stay in Halong Bay. At the moment we are still available on 10th of July. Besides, our shuttle bus only do pick up and drop off clients within Hanoi Old Quarter area thus please kindly try to book your hotel within this area. If not, please take the taxi on your own from your hotel to our office at 72 HANG TRONG street to join the bus on your departure date. Thanks for your kind notice and understanding. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Sunny (Ms)

Dear Ms. Rhea, Thank you very much for your question and we are happy to assist you with your trip. Swan is a good cruise to travel with and you will be fine with the schedule. Most sleeper train (from Sapa?) arrive in Hanoi at 5:00am and the bus does not pick up until 8:00am so you have plenty of time in between. You will arrive the next day in Hanoi around 5:00pm. It's best to fly from Hanoi airport to Bangkok as there will be more flight options and shorter travel time as well. I hope this is useful for you! Best regards, Lisa (Ms.)

Hello, Two of us are looking in to booking your lovely cruise later this year. We would be coming from Hanoi so can take the shuttle from here, but we will then be travelling on to Ninh Binh after. Is it straightforward enough to get from where the tour ends at Halong to a train station for the journey to Ninh Binh? Thanks very much.

Dear Mr. Adam, Thank you very much for your question about Swan Cruise! It's easier if you join the bus back to Hanoi and then take a train or bus to Ninh Binh (2 hours away). Alternatively you can take a taxi from the cruise pier to the central bus station in Halong City and take a local bus to Ninh Binh. If you need further information please feel free to contact us anytime!

Asked by Manu 1 month, 1 week ago
Good afternoon, We would like to book a 2D1N cruise on 6 May, for 3 people (one couple and one dad). My dad would like to book the summer promotion deal, is this the standard deluxe room and does the promotion apply to one single person as well? Would he have to share his room with a stranger? My partner and I would like to stay in the Suite Cabin with balcony. Does the $125 dollar promotion apply to this room as well? Or do we pay the regular price? Is it possible to book all these different rooms in one booking, to make sure we all get aboard in te same boat? Last question :-), I am vegan, so I do not eat any animals or animal products like dairy or eggs or fish sauce. Can there be vegan options on board? Many thanks in advance for replying my questions!!

Dear Manu, Thank you for your question and I am glad to assist with your trip! Please be advised that our rate US$125 per person is for double/twin sharing and it is for deluxe room only. Thus if your dad takes his own room, our rate is US$190 and our rate for Suite room is US$320 for 2 persons thus total cost for you is US$510 for 1 Deluxe cabin + 1 Suite cabin including shuttle bus. It is not yet possible to book 2 types of room in the same booking on our website thus I would book manually for you. Yes, the boat has vegan options thus kindly no worries. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Cindy (Ms.)

Dear Milly Sin, Thank you for your inquiries and I am very glad to assist you with your trip. Please be advised that on the route Hanoi - Halong, the bus does not stop for lunch so you may miss the cruise if you want to have lunch in Hai Phong. Thus, I suggest your group should go directly to Halong, then 5 members will board the cruise and 2 other members can choose to stay in Vinpearl Halong Resort instead. Is that okay for you? I can help you to arrange Halong bay cruise thus please share with me more details about your inquiry for our further help. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Cindy (Ms.)

A memorable trip! The service was great. We were impressed by the team on Swan cruise. Everyone was friendly, polite and willing to help. Tom and Kent were the best ones. The ship itself and our cabin were downgraded a bit but it was not a big problem.

The 1-night was very short. The vessel just moved to the attractions and after that did not move so far. The checkout time was quite early at 9:30 while we just disembarked at 11am. Maybe 2-night is better.

My husband and I were glad to book this trip. The ship was not as big and new as many boats out there but we felt well taken care of by the staff. The space was cozy and the atmosphere was intimate. The staff was definitely a credit to the company. Food was the best I have tried in Vietnam. Would love to come back here! Thanks a lot!

2 night trips are highly recommended. My husband and I chose Swan due to the small size and an off-the-beaten-track route and it could not be a better choice. The program was well organized. We went kayaking on the first day, visited a fishing village and swam on the second day and discovered a pristine cave on the last one. Food was nice. Staff was super friendly and happy to show us more about the bay. It was an unforgettable experience!
