They include pick up from your hotel.we stayed at old quarter hanoi. It took about 3 hours to reach Halong Bay, around noon time we board on the cruise. Very clean and a nice cruise. Not too small not too big either. We were served lunch and in the evening, we went to the caves. Night time, dinner were served . fresh seafood and large portion. We didnt finish all. In the morning, we went for kayaking. I really enjoyed that so much. My mom and I didnt have experience kayaking and we were paddling to no where and our guide came and assist us. What a funny experience. Really fun. And we went to see the monkeys , feeding them with banana.Overall a very unforgettable and awesome experience.

The travel agent where we normally book our tickets, arranged this cruise trip as per our request that safety is priority & others like nice/high end cruise ship, English speaking staff & acceptable food. We live in Ho Chi Minh City & as final destination is Ha Long Bay, we preferred to fly to Haiphong instead of Hanoi. Its 1-1/2 hour driving from Haiphong to Ha Long instead of 4 hour from Hanoi to Ha Long. Cruise ship departed on time around noon, as soon as we boarded there was a brief safety instruction done by the expatriate Manager & lunch was served. Expat Operation Manager runs this Cruise. Other staff speaks English well. All price is all in the package (excluding drinks of course). However when we go out for tour, mineral water & cold towel were provided. In overall, we were happy with the food (mix International & modern Vietnamese food), clean room, good staff, tour visiting the cave, national park, etc is well organized, good condition of the Cruise Ship. In conclusion; Ha Long Bay is indeed romantic.

 It was a great choice - with the natural beauty of Halong Bay, a diverse group of fascinating passengers, lovely boat, and an exceptional crew. the food was nice - with party games and karaoke causing much hilarity. The side trips to the amazing caves and floating villages were fascinating and kayaking was a very peaceful way to explore the bay. A printed daily activity list would assist in communicating with passengers about the activities - what to wear and take etc. This is a lovely authentic boat in a traditional style and offers a very genuine and personal experience. Special thanks to our amazing tour guide . Highly recommended.
