Dear Sir/Maam, We are looking for a 2 nights cruise from 27th June to 29th June. However, on 29th June, our flight from Hanoi is at 1.40pm so we need to reach back to Hanoi on 29th June in the morning around 10am. Is there a cruise that caters to this timining?
Dear Mr. Ayush, Thank you for your email. My name is Amber from Halong Bay Tour and I'm glad to assist you with your trip. The earliest time the boat can disembark around 10:30am, if you take private to come back Hanoi, it's not enough time for you to check in the flight. Could you go for 2 day 1 night instead? If yes, please advise me how many adults/kids (with age) will join the trip and you prefer to take luxury, medium or budget cruise? I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any inquiries. Best regards, Amber
Dear Sir/Madam, We are looking for a cruise n Halong Bai next August 27 th. Our budget is middle one. There are three of us as our daughter is travelling with us , she is 16 years old. We are so confused about being 2days/1 night or 3 days/1 night on board /1 night on bungallow in Cat Ba Island. Choosing the longest option I would really like cruising more on Halong Bai , let's say Lan Ha Bai, but I may be wrong. What is the real difference between both options? I do not want to repeat the same itinerary . Would you mind suggestion one cruise accordingly? We do not ir arriving to Halong Bai from Ni Bihn or viceversa. Thanks a lot!
Dear EduLoliPau, 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 we do not have any cruise which offers one night stay in Cat Ba, you will spend the nights on the cruise only. If you go for 3 days 2 nights, the itinerary will not be repeating thus pleas no worries. To compare the two area, Halong Bay is more famous with many well-known destinations like Titop Island, Surprise Cave while Lan Ha Bay is the newer area thus it is less touristy. Also, if you visit Lan Ha Bay, you will be able to visit some spots which belong to Cat Ba Island. Can you please consider and let us know which area you prefer? I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Jolie (Ms.)

Based on your inquiry we would like to recommend Swan Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/swan-cruise.html which offers excellent on board services and plenty of activities such as swimming, kayaking, squid fishing, Tai Chi, cooking class. The trip is majorly in Bai Tu long Bay, a more secluded area. Pick up and drop off is included in cruise cost as well. If you have any questions please let us know!

Hi there. I'm looking for a overnight tour on a junk boat for 2 days 1 night. The dates being 12th to 13th April. A budget or a semi-budget one would do. What would you recommend?
Dear Ms. Sapna, Thank you for your inquiry! For budget and semi-budget I would like to recommend you to consider either Glory Legend Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/glory-cruise/2-day-1-night.html or Aclass Legend Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/aclass-cruise.html Both of these cruises share similar itineraries to visit Titov Beach, Surprise Cave, the most classic sights of Halong Bay. The quality is good value for the price paid too ($280/cabin for Glory Cruise and $266/cabin for Aclass Cruise) including pick up and drop off in Hanoi. If you have any questions please let me know!
Hi. My wife and I are planning on a 2 day, 1 night cruise to Halong Bay. We want to stay overnight on April 25. I’ve reviewed all the options on your website, but still have a few questions that I’d like your opinion about. The cruises that interest me the most are with: Orchid Cruise Peony President Stellar of the Seas Of these, which one has the most luxurious ship? Which has the best food? Which has the best itinerary (or do all the ships essentially go to all the same places?) Do any of the above include the cost of transportation to/from Hanoi or is that an extra charge? Do any of the above include kayaking in the price or is that extra? Lastly, if we book now, is there any kind of cancellation policy if we are unable to make the cruise? Thanks
Dear Mr. Michael, Thank you so much for contacting us with your question! The cruises that you have outlined below are definitely among the best among cruises in Halong Bay. I would like to answer your question below: - The most luxurious service will be with President cruise with outstanding feature such as Michelin start chef, piano bar, outdoor jacuzzi - The most luxurious amenities will be Stellar of the Seas and Orchid with more spacious room and open view bath - Peony on the other hand offer great value for the price paid and one of our best selling cruise - Itinerary-wise, I would like to recommend either President Cruise or Stellar of the Seas. If you prefer more relaxation than seeing things then Orchid and Peony are better. - Only President Cruise offers inclusive transfer. Others come with a surcharge. - All of the cruises above offer free kayaking. For cancellation: you can cancel for free until 25 March without penalty. After that a fee will apply (you can check the section cancellation and change in each cruise page). I hope this is helpful! If you have any other questions please let me know! Hana

Hello, For the cruises on this website, is it possible to show up to the dock at the time which a cruise departs from in the Ha Long area, rather than be picked up from Hanoi? Or is it required to be picked up and dropped off in Hanoi for the entire experience? If it is required to be picked up/dropped off from Hanoi, can you direct me to where I can find cruises that will allow me to get picked up/dropped off from somewhere more local like Ha Long, Hai Phong, etc.? Thanks!
Dear Mr. Wong, Thank you for contacting us with your question. You can surely travel to Halong by yourself and be present at the dock by 11:45am for check in. Each cruise has their own meeting point (they will be located on Tuan Chau Island, near Got Pier, or in Halong city). Once you have decided which cruise you travel with, we can let you know the exact address and also the contact number of the person in charge in case you need to call for anything as well. In general, you can find the address for our cruise on each cruise page (above the cruise photos). Have a nice day!

Hi, I am traveling with a group of 13 people (9 adults and 4 children). We would like to do a tour on a luxury boat. We only have 3 days and 2 nights in Ha Noi. We arrive from Nha Trang on August 1st, do a tour of the city, then do a cruise for one night and be back in Ha Noi for a return flight to Ho Chi Minh City on August 3rd. Is this doable, or is our timeline too tight? Our hope to see Sung Sot Cave.
Dear Ms. Diane, Thank you for contacting us with your request and we are happy to assist you with your trip. Can you please share with us your children's age so we can recommend you the best option? The itinerary that you have mentioned seems fine and totally doable. Please note to book the flight back to Ho Chi Minh City later in the afternoon or in evening time so you don't have to rush back after the Halong Cruise trip. For cruise tours that are luxury and include visit to Sung Sot Cave you can consider the following: 1. President Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/president-cruise.html The cost is US$ 2480 for 6 Ambassador Balcony + Free shuttle bus round trip. This is the newest cruise in Halong Bay with outstanding service as the cruise is operated by Paradise company. 2. Paradise Elegance Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/paradise-luxury-elegance.html The cost is US$ 2160 for 6 deluxe balcony cabins and free shuttle bus. Paradise Elegance has fewer cabins than President Cruise and the cabins are a bit smaller. However the quality is equally as good. I hope these two options are a good start. If you need further information please feel free to let us know!

Hello, I am looking to take a cruise in between Dec. 28 and the 31rst. I am fine with either luxury or moderate cruises from a budget perpsective, but as I am travelling alone, I'm hoping to find a cruise that won't be overflowing with couples. At age 41, I'm not looking for a massive teenager party boat, but I wouldn't mind a nice mix of party and relaxation. Any suggestions would be welcome. It looks like I land around 12 pm in Hanoi on the 28th.

Hi My friend’s flight lands at Hanoi Airport at 12:40 pm. Please, is it possible to join for 2D1 night tour of Halong Bay on the same day? Thanks Pankaj
Dear Mr. Pankaj, Thank you for your email and question! I am sorry that the flight arrival time at 12:40pm is too late to join the cruise on the same day as all cruise departs at noon and it takes at least 3 hours to get to the pier from Hanoi Airport.

I'm looking to take an overnight cruise tour for Halong bay and move to Cat ba island on the following day to stay one night there. Is it possible to get the drop off at Hanoi/airport service, which included in the cruise tour, on the date when I head back to Hanoi? I'll be traveling by myself, at late20s female. Can afford a midrange one.
Dear N.Y, Thank you for your email and question. Please be advised that our shuttle bus only picks up and drops off in Hanoi Old Quarter. If you want to stay in Cat Ba one more day, on the day back you need to come back our cruise's port at noon to get the bus (we can arrange the bus back for you one day after you finish the cruise). Please have a look on our website for some options of mid-range cruise via this link https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruises/deluxe-cruises.html I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Cindy (Ms.)
