Full description

Get picked up directly from your Hanoi hotel and head over to the harbor to board your cruise. Enjoy welcome drinks while listening to the safety briefing. Savor a delicious lunch and take in ocean views as the boat sets sail, passing Dog Island, Dinh Huong islet, and Kissing Rocks.

Stop to visit Luon Cave. Go kayaking at Luon Cave or take a bamboo boat to Luon Cave. Then, explore the popular Ti Top Island, where you can go swimming or hiking to the top for 360-degree views of the bay. Back on board, enjoy the sunset with a buy-2-get-1-free Happy Hour at the onboard bar.

Experience a traditional Vietnamese cooking class on the deck, then taste your delicious dinner. Unwind after a long day or try your hand at squid fishing if you're feeling adventurous.

On day two, warm up in the morning with a tai chi lesson as the sun rises. Enjoy a light breakfast before visiting the magnificent Sung Sot Cave, with beautiful stalactites and stalagmites. Participate in a farewell lunch before arriving at the harbor and being transferred back to Hanoi.

The trip was very well organised from the start (pick up at our hotel in Hanoi) to the end (flexibility on the drop off point much appreciated). The trip coordinator (very helpful and in touch at any time), our guide (with passion for his work and great personality), cruise crew, kitchen staff (and food), room service were all fantastic. The views on the Ha Long Bay are just amazing. We enjoyed all the activities (caves, kayaking, visiting Ti Top island etc.) and the memories will stay with us for a lifetime. Our cabin was also nice. Thank you!

A wonderful experience, the ship was great, food and drinks were delicious and the staff was super nice. We felt very comfortable and all activities were well organized. Both the tour to the cave with great background information and the visit to the beach (which could have been a bit longer) or the kayak tour were great. We can definitely recommend.

From the taxi driver to the ship crew, everyone was very, very, very friendly. The room on the ship was great, the food was great too, I'm super happy with everything.
