Hello. We are travelling on january 2024, we are a couple with our 20 year old daughter. We are looking for a luxury mid size 3 day/2 night cruise with room balcony and that include all activities and excursions. We also value a more secluded itinerary avoiding the masses. As we are with our daughter, we look for more adventurous activities. Which boat itineraries you recommend that may suit us best? Thanks!

@Marina, To be honest, all cruises in Halong Bay currently follow the same route and itinerary. The only distinguishing factors are the quality of service and the size of the vessel. If you prefer a more exclusive experience, the Orchid Premium is an excellent option as it only has 5 cabins.

@Heather Since you're staying at Vinpearl resort, you can easily arrange a day tour of Halong Bay through their travel desk located at the reception. There are many cruise options available for you to explore the breathtaking scenery of the bay.

Hallo, we are a group of 6 friends travelling to Halong bay for our first time. We are looking for a 2 days 1 night cruise that includes cycling to cat ba island and a visit to a floatting village. Is there any cruise that includes these activities??

@Maria Unfortunately, there are no 2-day-1-night cruise itineraries that include a side trip to Cat Ba island. However, you may want to consider booking a 3-day-2-night trip to experience these activities.

@Paulo C There are no cruises offering hiking as a separate activity, however, Ti Top Island is a great place for hiking to the top of it for a great view of Halong bay. Paradise Elegance Cruises, Ambassador Cruises are among those who offer itinerary to Titop Island.
