    More About Family Cruises

    Halong Bay is one of the favorite destinations for family adventures. Although cruises specialized for only families are unavailable, there are so many family-friendly options that you can choose when traveling with your children.

    There are day cruises and overnight cruises for family travelers. However, overnight cruises are always better thanks to a more laid back itinerary and varied program.

    Halong Bay family cruises feature different styles, itineraries, facilities, and price ranges. You can choose a ship cruising to Halong Bay, Lan Ha Bay, or Bai Tu Long Bay. You can join a modern boat with a full range of services or a wooden junk with traditional values, a luxury boat or an economical one depending on your budget.

    Facilities & services on Halong Bay Family Cruises

    Here are facilities & services you can find on our recommend cruise for families 

    Swimming pool

    Not only children but also all parents will surely enjoy relaxing moments in the swimming pool while watching the magnificent landscape of Halong Bay. Many ships are equipped with a jacuzzi pool such as Orchid Class, Heritage Binh Chuan, Paradise Elegance, Ambassador, etc. You can even have a chance to try a floating ocean pool on Capella Cruise.

    Mini golf course

    Experience a new sport while joining a Halong cruise, why not? Some luxury cruises include a mini golf course and you can give it a try after the afternoon excursion such as Stellar of the Seas, Mon Cheri, or Capella cruise.

    Pool bar

    What could be better than sipping some wine or cocktail while dipping in the pool and watching the bay view? You can try different kinds of drinks on board such as beer, juice, cocktails, mocktails, wine, etc.

    Waterslide

    Not many cruises have a water slide on board. However, if you have an interest in it, Capella overnight cruise or Catamaran day cruise could be an option.

    What experiences do Halong Bay Family Cruises offer?

    Like any other cruise, Halong Bay family cruises offer a bunch of activities, making sure parents and children enjoy the trip from start to finish.

    Visit a cave

    With the unique formation of thousands of limestone islands and islets, your Halong Bay trip could not be perfect without a trip to a cave. Some of the outstanding caves that a family cruise will include in the itinerary are Sung Sot (Surprising), Me Cung (Maze), Thien Cung (Heaven Palace), Sang-Toi (Dark-Bright) Cave, etc.

    Swim at a local beach

    Halong Bay is very calm and the water is emerald. It is perfect for swimming or jumping off the boat in a quiet area and enjoying the peace of Halong Bay.

    Kayak through caves or around rocky mountains

    All family cruises include kayaking activities. Going through caves and reaching a tranquil lagoon or taking a closer look at rocky mountains by kayak would be the highlight of your Halong Bay trip with families.

    Take a sampan boat

    Those who do not want to kayak can choose a sampan boat trip. Instead of paddling by yourself, you just need to leisurely sit on a sampan boat rowed by a local and enjoy the serenity of the bay.

    Cycle around a local village on Cat Ba Island

    If you want a different experience, family cruises visiting Lan Ha Bay will give you a chance to cycle around rustic paths around a local village on Cat Ba Island. This activity is usually added to the 3 day 2 night trips on Lan Ha Bay cruises such as Orchid Classic, Indochine, Scarlet Pearl, Peony, etc.

    Join a cooking class

    A cooking class gives you a chance not only to learn about Vietnamese cuisine and tradition but also to try to make some on your own. It is among the fun activities not to be missed for children on a Halong Bay family cruise.

    Try morning Taichi on top deck

    Gentle movements in Taichi session help you to gain full energy for the whole day. It is also an ideal time for early risers to breathe fresh air and witness the quiet view of Halong bay.

    Squid fishing

    Catching squid like a local is a noteworthy onboard experience for both adults and kids. With provided fishing rods and bait, you can attract squid with a light and try to catch some squids for the night snack. Grabbing some beer and socializing with other guests during fishing time would be so much fun.
