    FAQs

    Are 2 days 1 night enough for Halong Bay cruises?

    If you have more time and a loose budget, it is recommended to book 2 nights. However, 1 night is worth your visit as it includes all onboard activities available in an overnight cruise and covers the most outstanding attractions.

    How much is 2 days/1 night trip?

    Depending on the cruise type, a 2 days/1 night trip costs you from US$100 to $400 per person. The rate includes 1-night accommodation, all meals onboard, all sightseeing fees, tour guide but not transportation. The round-trip shuttle from Hanoi to the cruise port ranges from US$20 to $40 per person.

    Do 2 days/1 night itineraries include a fishing village?

    Travelers can visit a fishing village on 2 days/1 night itineraries in Bai Tu Long Bay (Vung Vieng Fishing Village). In Halong Bay, a fishing village is normally included in a 2-night itinerary and travelers will get there by a small day boat on the second day. In Lan Ha Bay, you will visit a local village on Cat Ba Island instead of a floating fishing village and it is also added to 2-night itineraries.

    How many attractions does a 2 days/1 night itinerary cover?

    Each cruise has its own itinerary and it covers 2 or 3 attractions in 2 days and 1 night.

    Is there a beach trip in a 1-night itinerary to Lan Ha Bay?

    Yes. La Casta Cruises include a beach trip in 1-night itinerary. However, since all beaches in Lan Ha Bay are natural and easily affected by weather and sea levels, the beach trip may be altered by another. However, you still have swimming activities in the crystal water of Lan Ha Bay.  

    Is there kayaking in 2 days/1 night itineraries?

    Yes. All 2 days/1 night itineraries provide kayaking activities.

    Do all Halong Bay Cruises provide cooking demonstrations and Taichi classes in 1-night itineraries?

    It depends on the programs of each cruise but most cruises do. You can refer to Stellar of the Seas, Orchid Classic, Heritage, Genesis, Capella, Sena, Indochine cruise, etc.

    Which cruises visit Cat Ba Island in 2 days/1 night itineraries?

    Some cruises visiting Cat Ba Island in 2 days/1 night itineraries are Indochine, Mon Cheri, Orchid Classic, Orchid Trendy, and Orchid Premium Cruise.

    2 Day 1 Night Itinerary

    1 night cruise is the most popular cruise choice when visiting Halong Bay. In reality, all cruises depart at around 12:00 pm and comes back to the pier at 11:00 - 11:30 am the next day to drop off passengers and welcome new ones. This makes the total time onboard nearly 24 hours.

    Despite the short duration, what travelers get out of the experience waking up with the beautiful nature in front is unparalled. Besides these cruise trips offer many activities such as visiting caves, kayaking, squid fishing that promise you a trip to remember. 

    Why is 2 days/1 night chosen by most visitors?

    • Affordable price

    Although a 2 days/1 night trip can cost you up to US$400 per person, travelers still can join an overnight cruise for only from US$100 per person thanks to different cruise levels and the wide price range of Halong bay cruises. 1-night is a safe choice for all visitors as you may be afraid that 1 day is too quick and wonder if a 2-night itinerary is really worth it.

    • Reasonable duration

    Those who want to discover as many destinations as possible will find 1-night itineraries suitable for them. While 1 day could be rushed and 2 nights could be too much, 1 night is a good choice to get a glimpse of the natural wonder.

    • Adequate experience

    If day cruises bring you back to the harbor in the late afternoon and 2-night cruises offer repeated onboard activities, visitors have a chance to view Halong bay from early morning to late night and join all available activities on 2 days/1 night cruises such as cooking class, sunset party, squid fishing, Taichi, massage, etc.

    What activities are included in 2 days 1 night?

    • Day 1

    There are different routes to Halong, Lan Ha Bay, and Bai Tu Long Bay. A cruise may visit one or another attraction on the first or second day depending on their own schedule. However, the activities are similar among cruises.

    After arriving at the cruise pier, visitors are welcomed by staff and escorted to the cruise. You will check in your cabin before savoring a hearty lunch in the dining area. The cruise crosses thousands of limestone islands and islets and stops at the first attraction. It could be a cave such as Sung Sot cave, Dark-Bright Cave, Thien Canh Son Cave. It could be an area for swimming and kayaking such as Tra Bau, Ao Ech, Luon Cave, Titop Island, etc.

    After the first excursion, you will be back on the ship and join a bunch of onboard activities such as watching the sunset from the top deck, ordering drinks in Happy Hours, watching cooking demonstrations, dipping in the swimming pool, or booking a massage.

    In the evening, dinner will be served at around 7:00-7:30 pm. Then you will continue to enjoy the view of Halong bay at night, try squid fishing, play board games, socialize, or rest in your private cabin.

    • Day 2

    Day 2 normally starts with the Taichi session on the top deck. Early risers may like to hunt the best photo of dawn and try Taichi to refresh body and mind. While having a light breakfast, the ship proceeds to the second attraction. Travelers have around 1 hour for this excursion and back to relax and pack luggage for checkout. A full breakfast or early lunch will be ready in the dining area while the ship cruises back to the harbor. Disembark time is around 11:00 - 12:00.
