FAQs

1. Should I book a cruise in advance or until I get to Vietnam for a better price?

To get a better price, you should book the cruise in advance because by doing this, you have more time to check the suitable cruise, get a promotion, or find online travel agencies that offer a good price.

2. Why are there huge differences between the price listed on cruise official websites and the price listed on booking agencies? Is this a scam?

The prices listed on cruise official websites are different from (often higher than) the ones on booking agencies because travelers usually book the cruise via travel agencies and booking websites so the cruises usually discount for these booking agencies to attract more customers.
