If you are planning a trip to Halong Bay and you have time to spare, a 3 day 2 night cruise will be the best option. A 3-day cruise itinerary gives you a chance to explore the most secluded and faraway destinations, not only in Halong Bay, but also in Bai Tu Long Bay and Lan Ha Bay. Compared to 2 day trip, you will have more opportunities to kayak or swim, cycle or trek, and see more for less. Especially if you are traveling with children, a 3 day trip will be less hassled as you have more time to relax between the transfer back and forth from Hanoi.
