I would like to inquire about the cost of a 2-day trip to Bai Tu Long for a group friends of five, specifically looking for a 3-star cruise. We are considering starting the trip on Dec 15th. Can you please provide information regarding the pricing for such a package?

@Melody Gen:

You can consider option with Garden Bay Legend and Swan Cruise that is available on your date.

While exploring various cruise websites, I noticed that they offer transfers from Hanoi to Halong Bay. However, upon reviewing your pricing policies, I observed that transportation costs are listed under the Price Excludes section. I would like to inquire if you provide transfer services to Halong Bay and if so, what would be the associated cost? Additionally, I would appreciate your suggestions regarding the most budget-friendly options available.


Most our cruise havent included transfer from Hanoi and you can add it on the booking process. The budget friendly you can do Phoenix, Glory Legend Cruise.

I am looking for a 2-day 1-night cruise on 1-2 Dec 2023. We are 4 persons, need 2 rooms with balcony on a budget, also we are from Hanoi. Can you give me 2-3 options for the Halong route? Which route is the most popular in Halong? Can you recommend which cruise should we take?


The budget option mostly dont have Balcony, if you really want the balcony lets have look at Sena, La Casta, Rosy that can match your interested.
