Hi, We are looking for 1N2D cruise in Halong Bay. # Pax (2 Adults & Kid of 11 yrs). Kindly share the available options along with pricing. Also, we are pure vegetarian and wish to know if any veg options/meals available on the cruise (No Egg too & no preparation in Fish oil)
Dear Prateek, Thank you for your inquiry. I am happy to assist you with cruise selection. Our cruises are numerous ranging from budget to luxurious ones. May I know which class you are looking for to better assist you? Vegetarian dishes are available upon request. Looking forward to hearing from you. Best regards, Quan.
Hi, we are 6 adults and 2 children. We need these rooms: 1 x single room for one adult; 1 x room for two adults/1 child (13 years); 1 x room for one adult/1 child (15 years) - this could be just a double bed fine. We want to explore the less touristy areas of Halong Bay on a 3 day/2 night cruise (so we like the idea of going to Bai Tu Long Bay) and we want balcony rooms if possible, please and a swimming pool for kids. Travelling 2nd July 2023. What can you recommend please?
Dear Lucy, Thank you for your inquiry. We are so happy to hear from you! Please be advised that Bai Tu Long Bay does not have any cruise with swimming pools. So can you consider taking a cruise in Lan Ha Bay instead? This area is also less touristy than Halong Bay. As your group has children I think Capella Cruise may match your needs. This new luxury cruise has a swimming pool, water slide, mini golf course... And all cabins with private balconies and an ocean-view bathtub. If you are okay with this, please let me know your 2 children's ages too. Please note children from 12 years old are considered as adults. I am looking forward to hearing from you soon. Best regards, Helen
Hi, I am travelling with my parents and would like to opt for a one night luxury cruise. I wanted to know if you have connecting rooms/a suite. If so what would be the cost for one of those? If not, what would be the cost for 2 separate rooms? Also, do you get to get off the cruise and visit any of the beaches nearby? What are the activities included in the overnight cruise (1 night)? (kayaking, caves, swimming, beaches?)
Dear Rhea, Thank you for your questions! According to your request, please see some recommendations for a 2 days and 1 night trip as below: (1) Nostalgia Cruise - Princess Suite costs USD 710/ for 2 connecting cabins (US$35/person/ bus round trip); (2) Heritage Cruise Binh Chuan - Ocean Suite costs USD 840/ for 2 connecting cabins (US$35/person/ shuttle bus round trip); (3) Capella Cruise - Oasis Suite costs US$ 750 for 2 connecting cabins (US$ 35/ person/ bus round trip). All the cruises I mentioned above include kayaking, cave visiting and swimming activities in the itinerary. I hope this gives you some options to consider. If you have any questions, please let us know. Best regards, Jennie

Hello, I am a solo traveller, I will be in Vietnam next month. I'm looking for a 2 days/ 1 night cruise with some activities included, I am on a short budget so not a luxury one. I would like to have a tour of the bay, as well as a visit of the fishers' villages and i ould be great if it could include a stop at Cat Ba as well. Thanks a lot for the help !
Dear Martina, Thank you for sending us your inquiry. Please be advised that for 2 days/1 night cruise, I am sorry that there is no option to Cat Ba island. If you want to see the fishing village, you can go to Bai Tu Long Bay and kayak around Vung Vieng floating village but please understand it is for sightseeing purposes only as there is no resident there anymore. For that, you can consider Renea Cruise (https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/renea-cruise.html). The cost is USD 170 for a single cabin including bus round trip. I hope my recommendation would work and should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Best regards, Cindy

Hi - can you please recommend a small boat cruise for 2 adults and 2 teenagers with lots of activities- snorkel, kayak, bike riding - for January 2024 in a quieter area of Halong Bay - for either 1 or 2 nights - thank you

However, recently snorkeling is not available on every cruise and biking is a part of a 3D2N itinerary on cruises that sails Lan Ha Bay. Would you like to extend the trip to 3D2N to include kayaking and biking in your trip? Should you need further assistance, please feel free to contact us. Best regards, Nelly (Ms.)
