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$, but of course looking for a good value deal, so less would not hurt. Kind regards Julie
Dear Ms. Julie, Thank you for your question. As per your sharing, I would like to suggest you some options as below: 1. Stellar Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/stellar-cruise/3-days-2-nights.html The cost: US$ 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. The two cruises share the same itinerary, I did attach it to the email sent to you, please help me check it or you can go to the direct webpage above for most up to date information. 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.)

Hi, my husband and i will be going on 18th Oct 2018. We haven’t decide how many night to spend on cruise yet. We wish to have great food and activities on cruise. Preferably to go to BaiTuLong bay as i heard is less crowded. Our budget is mid-luxurious range. Please kindly assist us. Thank you.
Dear Lisar, Thank you for your email. My name is Cindy from Halong Bay Tours department and I am very glad to assist you with your trip. If you have time, a 3-day tour would be great. As the travel time from Hanoi to Halong and back is quite long (nearly 4 hours/way), the 3-day tour would bring you more time for activities and relax. Regarding your preference for cruising to Bai Tu Long Bay (as beautiful as Halong Bay but much less crowded), I would like to suggest you some of our good options below: - Signature cruise https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/signature-cruise.html: US$560/Junior Suite cabin for 2 persons and US$30/person for shuttle bus round trip - Paloma cruise https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/paloma-cruise.html: US$545/Deluxe cabin for 2 persons and US$15/person for shuttle bus round trip - Dragon Pearl cruise https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/dragon-pearl-junks.html: US$580/Deluxe cabin for 2 persons and US$35/person for shuttle bus round trip I hope my suggestion would work thus kindly share with me your idea for me to better assist. Please let me know should you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Cindy (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. I would like to recommend you to consider Swan Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/swan-cruise.html which is very reasonably priced and take you to visit Bai Tu Long Bay, a lesser visited place. 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.)

Dear Ms. Leah, Thank you very much for your question and I am glad to assist your family with the trip in June. We have many options for both hotel in Hanoi and cruise in Halong Bay to accommodate 3 persons in 1 cabin/room. For hotel, you can pick a family room for more comfort. For Halong Bay, many cruises offer to have an extra bed in the cabin so you can save cost (such as Paloma Cruise, Signature Cruise, Orchid Cruise). The details have been forwarded to your email and please let me know if you have any other questions! Best regards,
Hello, My husband and I will be traveling to Halong Bay in Dec. 2018. We would like a cruise that is luxurious, 2 day/1 night, great food, activities. I would also like to know the different options to get from Hanoi to the cruise. Budget $200 per person or slightly more for the right option. Thank you!
Dear Ms. Amanda, Thank you for contacting us with your question and it's our pleasure to assist you! May I know approximately when in December you will travel? Please note that the period from December 20th onward will be a busy time in Halong Bay, if you plan to travel during this time it is best to book in advance. On the contrary, the period from 1-20 December will have a lot more discount program. For your budget you can consider: - Paradise Luxury Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/paradise-cruise.html - the cost is $390 for a deluxe balcony cabin including transfer round trip from Hanoi. This is the most luxury cruise line in Halong Bay. - Alternatively if you prefer to pick a cruise closer to Hanoi with shorter transfer time you can consider Azalea Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/azalea-cruise.html which costs $442 for 2 persons including transfer. Please take the time to review these options and let me know if you have any questions. Best regards, Lisa (Ms.)
Hello, I currently live in Hanoi and my dad is visiting, so I would love to go a 1 night 2 day Halong Bay cruise with him. We would like a nice comfortable cruise with good food and hopefully some activities like kayaking. A twin bedroom would be great. Our budget is around $150 per person, but flexible for the right cruise. Which cruise would you suggest?
Dear Mr. Danielle, Thank you for contacting us and we are happy to assist you in anyway. I am not sure when your dad is visiting exactly - however if it is between May and September there will be a lot of summer deals for luxury cruise - some will see up to 40% discount. For your budget, I recommend you to consider Paloma Cruise if you want to visit less touristic Bai Tu Long Bay. If you prefer a classic route that covers the essential highlights of Halong Bay, you can choose either Stellar Cruise or Paradise Luxury Cruise. I hope that is helpful! Best regards,

Dear Lynette, Thank you for your question! My name is Cindy from Halong Bay Tours department and I am very glad to assist you with your trip. Regarding your preference for a 3 day tour in mid-range, I would like to suggest you two options below: - Stellar cruise https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/stellar-cruise.html: US$505/Deluxe cabin for 2 persons including shuttle bus round trip. This cruise follows classic route of Titov Island - Surprise Cave. - Paloma cruise https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/paloma-cruise.html: US$495/Deluxe cabin for 2 persons and US$15/person for shuttle bus round trip. This cruise follows alternative route on Bai Tu Long Bay with fewer tourists of Thien Canh Son Cave, Vung Vieng fishing village. I hope this information is helpful and please let me know if you have any other questions! Best regards, Cindy (Ms.)
Good day I have a family of four adults arriving on 11th Apr, planning to take a 2D1N Halong cruise. Is there a family room for 4 adults? Can you provide me a few recommended cruise and price? Thks
Dear Ms. Lynda, Thank you for your email. My name is Jolie from Halong Bay Tours department and I am happy to provide further information on your trip to Halong Bay. May I know if you have a fixed budget? For example if you consider a budget around $550 or less for the family you can consider the family cabin on Glory Legend Cruise (https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/glory-cruise/2-day-1-night.html). For budget from $550 up to $900 we have connecting cabin on Gray Line Cruise (https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/grayline-cruise.html) or for more luxury choices please consider family cabin on Azalea Cruise (https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/azalea-cruise.html) or Mon Cheri Cruise (https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/mon-cheri-cruise.html). I hope to hear from you soon if you have any specific question and please let me know if you have any other inquiries. Best regards, Jolie (Ms.)
We are planning a cruise for 4 adults (2 rooms) in July, we will be flying from KL could you please advise which is the best airport to fly into and how the transport works and do you do airport pick ups.
Dear Mr. Martin Kennelly, Thank you for your question and it's my pleasure to help you arrange your trip to Halong Bay. From Kuala Lumpur it's best to fly to Hanoi and from Hanoi airport, it's about 2-4 hour car ride to the cruise pier (travel times depend on whether you pick the cruise that departs from Hai Phong area or Tuan Chau area). We offer airport pick up for sure. However please kindly note that if your flight arrives later than 9:00am, you will not make it for the same day cruise. In such case I suggest you go to Hanoi for the day and take the cruise the next day. If you have any other questions please let me know! Best regards, Lisa (Ms.)
Please advise if May is a good month to go, especially for activities like swimming and kayaking? We plan to arrive Hanoi in late May and want to book a 2d1n Halong bay cruise for our family, can you recommend a cruise with free kayaking and transfer. Thank you
Dear Ms. Hanna, Thank you for your question! May is definitely a great time to visit Halong Bay with plenty of sun and lower price for almost all cruises in Halong Bay. The weather is perfect for kayaking and swimming. As many of our cruises offer complimentary kayaking and transfer, we have emailed you several choices to consider such as Stellar Cruise, Athena Cruise, Glory Legend Cruise. If you need any further information please let me know!

Dear Ms. Alvita Chen, Thank you for your email inquiry. My name is Lisa and I am very happy to assist you with your coming trip. May I know if you have a fixed budget? Actually in February we are having a very good price for luxury cruise so the price is very close to mid-range if you are interested. For example, a family cabin on Aphrodite Cruise (https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/aphrodite-cruise.html) cost $620 including bus round trip by luxury limousine D-Car for 2 day 1 night trip. Alternatively you can consider Gray Line Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/grayline-cruise.html - we offer $450/deluxe triple cabin including bus round trip. Both of these are very good choices. I hope to hear from you soon and please let me know if you have any other inquiries.
Me and my wife are planning to visit Ha-long bay during the Chinese new year season in Feb this year. Ha r a few questions. 1. Is 2 days/1 night sufficient in Having bay if we just need to experience the cruise? 2. On the last day, could we squeeze in Hanoi sightseeing and then take flight back to singapore. 3. Also, am on a infian passport staying and working in singapore. Would I need a visa? What would be the cost for: 1. 2D/1N on cruise with a good view 2. What would you charge for airport transfers to port and back again to Hanoi on last day. Waiting to hear back Regards Santosh
Dear Mr. Santosh, Thank you for contacting us with your travel request. As we have a wide range of cruises, - 1 night and 2 night - 3, 4 and 5 star. Can you please let us know some of your criteria so we can offer you the best match to your expectation? If you just need some basic exploration then a 2 day 1 night cruise is ideal. The cruise bus returns you to Hanoi around 5:00pm so we think there is not enough time for sightseeing and then flight back to Singapore. Indian nationals need a visa letter for sure. For a start we recommend you to consider Paradise Luxury Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/paradise-cruise.html - we offer special deal $360 for deluxe cabin including bus round trip. Thank you
