Itinerary & activities

An off-the-beaten-track itinerary makes Signature Royal Cruise a favorite. It cruises to the most pristine parts where guests see not so many boats and are totally immersed in nature. You will see the magical formation of stalactites and stalagmites of Thien Canh Son Cave, local floating houses at Vung Vieng Fishing Village, and join kayaking or a bamboo boat rowed by a local. Besides, swimming in the crystal clear water and sunbathing on the beach, or kayaking at Cong Dam Area is the best part of a 2-night program you may not want to miss.

Cruise quality

The wooden-hull cruise has a steel core and updated equipment accommodating the safety standard of the local authority. Besides well-equipped accommodations, the cruise includes luxurious facilities to provide guests with an enjoyable stay.

Cabin quality

16 deluxe cabins are categorized into 5 types: Junior, Senior, Exclusive Family, Elite Family, and Royal Suite. Junior Suites boast an ocean view window while the others have a private balcony. All cabins are gracefully designed with elegant colors and hand-crafted wooden furniture. Jacuzzi bathtub and soft mattresses are provided in all rooms for extra comfort and relaxation.

Service & facilities

The cruise offers a variety of services and facilities. Guests not only enjoy sumptuous meals at a lavish restaurant, and sip high-quality wine and other drinks from the bar but also have a rejuvenating time at the spa onboard. A sundeck with lots of sunshine, sea breeze, and a breathtaking view of Bai Tu Long Bay is perfect for sightseeing, socializing, cooking class, Happy Hour, etc. The cruise offers shuttle service and event arrangements for birthdays, anniversaries, and more.

Food & Drink

Local seafood accounts for a large portion of every meal on Signature Royal Cruise. However, guests still can request non-seafood or vegetarian options if needed. The stylish restaurant also serves other Western-style dishes and children’s menus. There is also a diversity of beverages from the bar.

I traveled alone on Signature Royal for 1 night. The staff was very friendly and went above and beyond to make me enjoy the trip. I never felt bored during the trip. My cabin was spacious and the bed was comfortable. I love kayaking very much and wish I could spend more time on the bay. Thank you for a great trip!

The cruise does not have a chic look as many new modern cruises yet its traditional style and royal vibe were unique. The cabin was large and clean yet the shower needs to be upgraded. The food was varied and of good quality. The staff was nice.

If you prefer an off-the-beaten-track itinerary on Halong Bay, this cruise could not be more suitable. The ship was a bit run down yet all of our needs were well fulfilled. We had a Junior Suite on the main deck with windows. The room is in good size and well equipped. Food was average yet pretty varied. The trip to the cave and the floating village were very nice and relaxing, not too crowded and very tranquil. Everyone should try!

The schedule went smoothly and was well organized. We went kayaking to a fishing village on the first day and explored a cave on the second day. While on board, you can watch the bay on the top deck, join a cooking lesson, try squid fishing (which was a bit boring and difficult), and do Taichi in the morning. The staff was friendly. Food was okay, not really excellent.

We chose this cruise for its unique route to Bai Tu Long Bay and the trip was more than expectations. The scenery was spectacular and there were not many other boats like the area we started from. We visited a fishing village on a kayak and it was very peaceful and nice. The boat was clean and well-maintained although it has been operating for years. Staff cannot do better. We were supported at any time we needed and the staff made sure we enjoyed everything from food, cabin, activity, and excursions. This was definitely the best choice for a natural getaway!

The trip was far above my expectations. The ship was beautifully decorated. Our room was spacious and elegantly designed. We stayed in the Senior Suite which had a private balcony. Food was great. The best part must be the dedicated service from the staff. A special thanks to the cruise manager for his attention to detail and timely support! Would recommend the cruise to everyone.

@elin, March and November are two of the best months to visit Bai Tu Long. March is the Spring with average temperatures ranging from 18 to 24°C while November is Fall with temperatures from 23-27°C. Both months have low rainfall and are suitable for outdoor activities such as hiking, visiting a cave, kayaking, etc. So you can consider the one that suits your schedule the most. Regards,

@elin, The shuttle bus is not included in the tour. The round-trip bus from Hanoi Old Quarter costs US$30/person. However, kayaking, taichi, cooking class, and squid fishing are included in the tour. Regards,
