@Utpal, There are plenty of cruise options for 2D1N with 250 USD budget range and La Casta Regal Cruise is one of them. We have emailed you with cruise itinerary information. The cruise tour will end around 12:00, so you have time to return to Hanoi before 3:00 and it takes only 1 hour to get to the airport from city center.
