Dear Ms. Jennie, Thank you for your question. I am sorry that the bus can only drop off in Hanoi Old Quarter. From there you can take a shuttle to Ninh Binh. Normally if you travel from Halong to Ninh Binh you will make stop in or near Hanoi anyway so I suggest you to take the free bus back to Hanoi first. Best regards, Lisa (Ms.)

Asked by Thuy Muhl 3 months, 3 weeks ago
How many cabins are on the ship? I see that I can choice 5 cabins but the description stated 4 cabins. I would like to book the cruise for 7 people for October 11. Is it possible for us to arrange for transfer to Hai Phong airport after the visit at Dong Trieu Village because we have to catch our flight at 8 pm at Hai Phong Airport on Oct 12. Thanks!

Answered by Cindy 3 months, 3 weeks ago
Dear Thuy Muhl, Thank for contacting us! Please note Petit White Dolphin cruise has total 4 cabins. As I have checked, this cruise has only 3 cabins available on Oct 11 as 1 cabin has been booked thus could you consider to share the boat and take 3 cabins? In means there is one cabin would accommodate 3 persons. The boat can put an extra mattress in this room for the third persons. For the transfer, if you want to go to the airport, you would need a private car bring you all to there as the shuttle bus only picks up and drops in Hanoi. And if you take private car, it is not possible to visit Dong Trieu Ceramic village because the way to Hai Phong is on another route. I hope my info would be helpful and kindly share with me your advice for our better assist. Best regards, Cindy (Ms.)
