    FAQs

    Do I have to pay anything other than the tour cost?

    Tour cost only includes accommodation, meals, entrance & sightseeing fee, onboard tour guide, and activities included in the program. Other expenses such as transportation, hotel, airfare, beverages, massages,... are not included.

    For transportation, you will pay in advance while for other personal expenses such as spa or beverages incurred during the cruise trip, you can pay on board.

    How can I book a luxury cruise at a promotional price?

    You can choose one of these ways to get a good deal for a Halong luxury cruise:

    • Book cruises in the low season from May to September.
    • Book early-bird and last-minute deals.
    • If you travel with children or in group of 6 adults or more, contact us for best discounts

    Can I book a luxury cruise on arrival?

    The most reputable luxury cruises are always a hot sell and often fully booked weeks, even months in advance. It is always best to reserve your trip at least 2-3 months in advance of your trip date. 

    What are the best luxury cruises in Halong Bay?

    What's best really depends on each traveler’s personal taste. However, you can refer to some of our best selling cruises below:

    • Best luxury cruises for families: Stellar of the Seas, Capella, Essence Grand
    • Best luxury cruises for couples: Elite of the Seas, Scarlet Pearl, Heritage, Genesis Luxury Regal, Indochine
    • Value for money: Orchid Classic, Mon Cheri, Peony.
    • Best itineraries: Ambassador, Paradise Elegance.

    Should I book 1-night or 2-night cruise?

    We recommend 2 night trip as you get to experience the best of Halong Bay/ Lan Ha Bay. One night trip are often found too short since you spend close to 24 hours on board only, and sometimes the list of activities may make you feel a bit rush.

    What makes luxury cruises different from others?

    There are many cruises offering overnight trip in Halong Bay. Luxury cruises will be the one with best amenities, best food and best standard of service. Although the level of luxury differs even among cruises in this same category, in general you will enjoy the trip much better than in a lower price category.

    Facilities & services

    Luxury cruises offer a wide range of services and facilities. Let us list some of the most outstanding features for our best selling luxury cruises such as:

    Orchid Premium cruise: the only luxury cruise with 5 cabins on board, each cabin with minimum size of 45sqm

    On top of that, luxury cruises offer high-quality customer service. All crew members are well-selected and trained to ensure a professional but caring service. You will be assisted from start to finish, welcomed at the port, escorted on every excursion, and taken care of meals and any single inquiry during your stay.

    Itineraries & programs

    All cruises in Halong Bay/ Lan Ha Bay/ Bai Tu Long Bay must follow one of the 5 sightseeing routes set out by Halong management board. Cruises in the luxury range will by and large follow this rule although Essence Grand cruise is working on an exclusive route in summer 2024 that goes beyond the traditional itinerary.

    Usually, each cruise will include 2-3 different excursions such as visiting caves, kayaking, or swimming. 

    What makes luxury cruise a difference is mainly the activities on board: A sunset party with canapes, a unique cooking demonstration, a cocktail presentation in a romantic sunset backdrop, poker club, spa services, to name a few.

    Price range

    Expect to pay from 190$++ per person for a 5 star one night trip to Halong Bay.  However, a few ultra-luxury options can cost you up to US$400-600 per person such as Orchid Premium cruise, Emperor, Heritage Line Ginger, Heritage Line Ylang Cruise, etc.

    You can still find yourself an amazing bargain if you book last minute or early bird and save as much as 40% of the trip cost.

    How to choose the best luxury cruise?

    Here are 3 main criteria you can take into account to decide which luxury cruise is the best for you!

    Your Budget

    As mentioned above, the price range of luxury cruises is a bit wide. Sort by price to find the proper cruise or you can refer to some smaller ranges for luxury cruises as followed:

    • Above $400: Heritage Line Ylang, Heritage Line Ginger

    Your Group Dynamics

    If you are traveling with kids, some cruises with many fun activities such as kayaking, waterslides, sup, swimming pool,...would be ideal. If you want to socialize in a vibrant atmosphere, cruises with 15 - 30 cabins are better than the 5-10 cabin cruises. Or, if you are planning for your honeymoon, proposal, or wedding anniversary, modern cruises with beautiful cabins and romantic dining settings could help.
