Hello, I would like to book a 2 or 3-day cruise in Halong Bay for my family. We are 2 adults and 2 children (10 and 7 years old). Do we need to book 2 rooms, or are family rooms available?

Dear Ms. Amy, Thank you for contacting us with your question and it is our pleasure to assist you with your trip to Halong Bay. There are many cruises with family cabins available. For a recommendation for 2 day 1 night trip you can consider: Glory Cruise https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/glory-cruise/2-day-1-night.html - the cost is $590 for the family cabin including transfer round trip or Peony Cruise https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/peony-cruise.html - the cost is $770 for the family cabin including transfer round trip. These two cruises differ in itinerary: the former will take you to classic sights such as Surprise Cave, while the latter follow Lan Ha Bay route. For 3 day trip, you can consider Azalea Cruise: https://www.halongbaytours.com/cruise/azalea-cruise.html which is a very family oriented cruise with children play room. Its 3 day trip also does not require transfer of boat which is very unique for Halong Bay trip. If you need any further information please kindly let me know! Best regards, Hana (Ms.)

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.)

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!

Dear Ms. Sapna, Thank you for your inquiry!

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!
