3 day 2 night luxury cruise

The journey from Hanoi to Halong Bay is long (nearly 4 hours) however they provided a luxury minibus to make the trip. A stop halfway at the anticipated tourist goods hyper-market made a welcome stop. Actually the goods on show were extensive and good quality although available cheaper in Hanoi. The cruise boat has 34 cabins which are quite well appointed. One item lacking was a kettle to make drinks. You share the cruise with (in our case) mostly 2 day trippers and everyone does the same on Day 1. The kayaking was quite hard work but the sights worth the effort. If you are not up to the kayaking you can laze on a sampan and let a lady do the work for you! The meals on the boat were excellent Vietnamese fine dining, presented very well by the chef and the staff were very attentive, pleasant and efficient. Day 2 for us was the best part. From our cruise we were the only ones joining up with 4 from a sister company we transferred to a smaller day cruise boat and travelled to a much more remote, quiet and beautiful part fo Halong Bay. Another kayak session to a beach and then more to a beach where we could swim. The water was bracing but great nonetheless. Back to the day boat for another excellent multi-course lunch then back to the cruise ship for a restful afternoon and another excellent dinner. Day 3 was a morning trip to a beach and a cave then lunch and back to the cruise for lunch and then return to Hanoi. Down sides - the drinks were a bit on the pricy side but not extortionate. We went in mid-season and it was very busy on day 1 and day 3. There is a procession of about 30 cruise ships all with the same itinerary so everywhere is rather crowded. We were glad of day 2 as we saw some beautiful bays without boats everywhere. Yes I would recommend it but don't expect the isolation that maybe some tour operators what you to believe - that boat has already sailed.

3 day 2 night

Tracy - Who helped us to book a 3 day, 2 night cruise for us on this ship. We were lucky enough to get one of the rooms with a private balcony, which really enhanced the experience. To sit on any of the decks while moving through the limestone rock formations of Halong Bay was truly divine. Our best, least touristy activities took place on the full second day; otherwise, on the partial first and third days, we were jammed into the standard itineraries arranged for many, many other visitors. My advice would be to ask questions about the tour’s itinerary to ensure you’re getting the experience you want. Booking a 3 day tour will help.

"A remarkable experience"

We had one of our best trips here. We stayed for 3 days and 2 nights and had a wonderful time! We went kayaking and swimming twice enjoyed the views and ate some delicious food. The person who really made our stay unforgettable was Hotel Manager Mr Stanley. His service is a five star experience. From early morning until late night he makes sure that everything runs smoothly at the cruise and in the restaurant, and is attentive to every detail of the customer. He is a true gentleman and will answer any question and attend to your every need. All the other staff were also extremely polite and helpful

Heaven on Earth

Absolutely fabulous place. This is literally heaven on Earth. It's scenic , picturesque, serene and out of the world. Cruise service is also excellent . We are vegetarians but the friendly Cruise crew serves decent veg dinner and lunch. The tour guide Jackie / Tugen was friendly and helpful. Fishing village or cave trip were interesting. Worth coming back again.
