Editor Reviews

Pros

Rare specialized itineraries take you to untouched areas that other cruises fail to offer. The 3D2N trip sails to Cat Ba Island for the best cave visiting experience. In addition, staterooms are among the largest with large windows opening toward the sea.

Cons

The price excludes the transfer service from Hanoi to Dinh Vu Port. You need to pay a surcharge for New Year and Christmas.

Bottom Line

Azalea cruise has inherited and strived to perfect its cruise line as the leading line in 5-star cruises in Lan Ha Bay.
