Hi, Can you get these cruises from phu quoc please?
Dear Ms. Sarah Parish, Thank you for your inquiry. All of the cruises on our website are in Halong Bay and you cannot sail from Phu Quoc. The best way is to take a flight from Phu Quoc to Hanoi (2 hours) and travel to Halong Bay (2-4 hours) to join one of these trips. Best regards,
I have been reading that kayaking has been banned on Halong Bay. Is this correct or will all boat companies still offer kayaking if we do a 2 day /1 night cruise? My boyfriend and I are looking to book something for mid July, either deluxe boat or luxury? What would you recommend? I would definitely want our cruise to include the less touristy area of Bai tu long. Please advise. Thanks very much
Dear Ms. Regina, Thank you very much for your question. I am happy to provide you with some information below: - Kayaking was banned but it has been allowed again since mid-2017. You can still kayak - most boats offer this activity free of charge for summer time between May and September. - As you prefer to cruise in Bai Tu Long Bay, you can consider Paloma Cruise - https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/paloma-cruise.html (deluxe type) or Signature Cruise - https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/signature-cruise.html/ Athena Cruise - https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/athena-cruise.html (luxury type).

Hello We are a young couple planning to do a trip in the beginning of July. We are not sure about whether the 2D1N or 3D2N is best, but we are currently leaning towards the 3D2N to experience more. We would like safe and quality boat with many activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, trekking and so on. Tai Chi, food classes and the like is not important. And not a party boat either! If the food is great and there are some romantic possibilities, it would be huge plus. Our budget is around 4-500$, but of course looking for a good value deal, so less would not hurt. Kind regards Julie

Stellar Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/stellar-cruise/3-days-2-nights.html The cost: US$ 505/cabin + Free kayaking + Free shuttle bus round trip. 2. Carina Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/carina-cruise/3-days-2-nights.html The cost: US$ 460/cabin + Free kayaking + Free shuttle bus round trip.

Please note that snorkeling is not available now on any cruise due to safety reasons, I hope it is not a big matter with you. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Jolie (Ms.)

Good morning, I would like your advice on the best cruise option for 2 adults and 2 kids (8 & 6) for travel on 3rd & 4th of July 2018 (2d 1n). We would like a medium-luxury cruise, with plenty of activities like swimming and kayaking. Many thanks Graham
Dear Mr. Graham Bridle, Thank you very much for your question and it is my pleasure to assist you with your trip planning! As we have quite a lot of cruises for the medium-luxury range, may I recommend you some family-friendly options below to consider: (1) Paloma Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/paloma-cruise.html - we can arrange 1 family cabin for your trip and the cost is $620 including shuttle bus round trip. This cruise tours mainly in Bai Tu Long Bay so there will be fewer tourists along the way. (2) Aphrodite Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/aphrodite-cruise.html - we can arrange 1 family suite and the cost is $650 including shuttle bus round trip by VIP limousine. The transfer is very comfortable for family with children on the VIP limousine, and Aphrodite cruise tours around the classic route so you will be kayaking or swimming around Titop Island area (more tourists). I hope these two are a good start for you to consider. Please take the time to review them and let me know if you need further options or suggestions! Best regards, Lisa (Ms.)
Hi, I am looking to do either a 1 or 2 night cruise. Solo traveller in late 20’s. Looking for a cruise which has a social aspect but not a crazy party cruise. Budget to mid range. Can you please advise? Many thanks
Dear Ms. Sarah, 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.

The cost for 2 day trip is $160 and 3 day trip is $350, including transfer, all meals on board, entrance fee and activities. This is a value choice often with younger group of travelers (but not a party one for sure) so you can consider it for a start. If you need further option or advice please let me know! Best regards, Jolie (Ms.)
