Full description

This dreamy cruise will leave you with lifelong memories. You will be picked up from your hotel in the Old Quarter of Hanoi and head to Halong Bay. On arrival you will enjoy a welcome drink on board and a delicious lunch.

Cruise past hundreds of fascinating limestone pinnacles towering from the water. It is then time for some kayaking fun, exploring the beauty of nature in the hidden lagoon as you paddle through caves, gazing up at stalactites.

There is a stop for you to go swimming in the emerald waters. Back aboard, it’s time to relax with the Happy Hour deals, where you can join in a traditional cooking class. Once anchored for your tranquil overnight stay, the evening begins with the fantastic flavors of the deluxe dinner set menu. The next morning, you can start the day with a tai chi lesson on the sundeck, followed by a light breakfast. Board the day boat to visit Viet Hai fishing village where you can enjoy cycling along the village (Optional electric car service is available.)

Take in the stunning landscape of Cat Ba rain forest and dark tunnels, witness the scenery of rice fields, visit the ancient house, and get closer to local life. Over lunch, you are free to discover the local life and food of Cat Ba township.

Visit Bao Trai Dao (Three peach Islets), a peaceful body of water that makes it the perfect place for scenic kayaking or relaxing on a sandy beach. Get back onboard the cruise and have some Tapas prepared by the chef.

Next, it's time to contemplate the magnificent sunset over the Gulf of Tonkin while having a few drinks during Happy Hour at the bar on the top deck. The Deluxe Dinner is served, and you experience a delightful meal in an intimate romantic setting.

Take the time to enjoy delicious local food prepared and served to you by lovely caterers. It's time to admire the beauty of the night on the bay, sit at the bar on the sundeck, or in the restaurant to welcome you.

Try your luck with squid fishing, watch a movie in the restaurant, or play some cards or chess before settling in for the night. On the final morning, it is a perfect time to refresh and indulge yourself in the peaceful beauty of the bay with a tai chi session on the sundeck. If you want to hunt for dawn, get up from 5:30 to 6:00 depending on the season.

The cruise is ok. They changed the itinerary from the one we booked. There was also confusion about the free shuttle bus - we ended up having to pay for our transfer
