My husband and I want to book a 3 day Bai Tu Long Bay cruise for December 14th. We are looking at either Signature or Renea. Is there a difference between the two? We also need transportation from the Hilton Garden Inn in the old quarter to the pier and return to the Sheraton in the Tay Ho district. Can you arrange the transportation and what is the cost?

Signature & Renea mainy differents about the services standard, cabin qualities. While Signature is offer more luxurious services, Renea just offer the standard one. You can book the transfer and it will pick you at Hilton Garden Inn but will not drop you at Sheraton because it is not located in Hanoi Old Quarter.
