Dear Paula, Thank you for contacting us! As you might not know, at the moment, there are no cruises sailing for 3 days 2 nights and staying one night on Cat Ba island. There are only cruises that stay 2 nights on the cruise and visit Lan Ha Bay, Viet Hai Village on Cat Ba Island. Thus may I know if that itinerary suits you?
