@Robin, Most shuttle buses to Halong Bay depart at 9:00 AM, so it may be difficult to make it in time for the 10:00 AM departure. However, if you can arrange a private transfer to the port before 12:00 PM, it may be possible. For cruise recomendation, Capella Cruise is a great option with a good itinerary and many activities, and they serve delicious food too.

Their modern boat and exceptional service make them one of the top choices for cruising in Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay.

@Charles For your honeymoon in Vietnam, I would recommend considering La Siesta Cruise, the newest and largest cruise line in 2023, for a luxurious experience. The cruise offers a range of options through Halong Bay, including 1-night, 2-night, and 3-night cruises with spacious cabins that have private balconies, a spa, a restaurant, and a bar.

Hello I am looking for a 3 day 2 night leaving from Hanoi cruise. I would like to travel to Cat ba Island as part of the tour if possible but not mandatory. The biggest issue is I am traveling with my 14 year old teenage daughter, so we do not want an older crowd or couples. We want something with music, alot activities, pescatarian options but something that isn't so massive but is not old as well. I was looking is Oasis Party but she maybe too young

@Qiane We highly recommend considering the V'Spirit Premier Cruise for your trip. Their 3-day, 2-night itinerary includes a visit to Cat Ba Island (Viet Hai Vilage) and offers a variety of activities, including Tai Chi, cycling, kayaking, and cooking classes. The cruise has a maximum of 30 passengers, with 14 cabins, ensuring that it is not too large. V'Spirit also caters vegetarian and pescatarian options for meals. In contrast, while the Oasis Party cruise offers music and activities, it tends to attract a younger party crowd and may not be the best choice for a 14-year-old girl.

Hi. We are looking for a 2 days 1 night cruise for 6 adults. We are looking for a cruise that would take us to Sung Sot Cave and Ti Top island and rooms with outside balcony as well as bathtub in the room. What cruise would you suggest. Budget would be about $200 per person.

@Tolan Le For your cruise requirements, we recommend you to go with either Ambassador or Paradise Elegance Cruise. They have large cabins with balcony, visiting both Sung Sot Cave and Ti Top Island, the price range is within your budget too. We just emailed you with more cruise information and itinerary! Thank you

I would like a spacious room with floor to ceiling glass windows, balcony a plus. Non buffet style dining and excellent Asian (preferably) food is very important. I also require a newer boat with clean facilities. Which cruise line would you recommend? Thank you in advance.

@Cathy Most cruises will offer buffet for lunch and set menu for dinner. If you prefer cruises with great food, we recommend Ambassador cruise for Halong bay (launched 2018) and Heritage Cruise Binh Chuan for Lan Ha Bay (launched 2019), they serve great FINE dining dishes for dinner! If you are not travelling until mid-2023, then La Siesta would be the first 6-star cruise in Halong bay with modern facilities and great proven service (they operate the well-known hotel chain in Vietnam).

@leora There are some luxurious cruises which are most popular but each cruise has different quality, foods and infrastructures (room types and area). I have sent you an email with a few suggestions with cruise facilities, services and itineraries.

Hello, I am looking to book a Ha Long Bay cruise from 20-December to 21-December for 3 people (2 adults and 1 child). The child is 4-years old and does not need a separate bed.  We would like an ultra-luxury boat that does not have a lot of cabins. We prefer a smaller book with few cabins / less people.  We would like excellent food (no buffets) and excellent service.  We would like a very large suite or 2 adjoining rooms.  We will need to travel from Hanoi and are then flying to Hoi An after we disembark. We will need transfers from our hotel in Hanoi to the boat on 20-December and a transfer from the boat to whichever airport is closest in 21-December.  I am a vegetarian so it is important that the chef can make options for me.  Also, December 20 is my birthday so we want this to be very special.  If there is a boat that has a babysitting service (so my husband and I can eat dinner and enjoy the evening), that would be great.  Thank you!!!

@Mrs Toby Baer For luxury cruises with less cabins, we would recommend you to go with Orchid Premium (05 cabins) or the newly launched Nostalgia Cruise (10 cabins). We just emailed you with detailed cruise information and itinerary to consider!
