The boat obtains a classic but gorgeous appearance. It’s fully painted in white with the highlight of three masts. Calypso looks energetic as the three masts stay proudly while the boat moves straightforwardly on the jade water.

BestPrice's Review 



  • Calypso sails to visit two caves Trung Trang on Cat Ba Island and Dark and Bright Cave, which is different from what other cruises in Lan Ha Bay line offer. Thus, clients can avoid crowds on their excursions.



  • The cruise is not too big and clean, equipment and necessary facilities for a trip.


  • The design and location of the bathroom are uncomfortable for clients

Foods & Beverages 


  • All meals served on Calypso cruise are fully, guarantee bring the best energy for guest to join in the discovery.


  • The taste of lunch and dinner needs to be improved as 4-star quality.


Meet your shuttle bus at 9.00-9.30 and arrive in Hanoi at 15:00. Hanoi Old Quarter is the pickup/drop-off place.

A lot of impressive activities for your experience such as doing Tai-chi sessions, visiting caves and fishing villages, joining cooking demonstrations, trying squid fishing, swimming ...

If you want to enjoy your trip with your family, we recommend these 2 types of the cabin for you. The first one is Deluxe Cabin which has 2 beds for 3 max guests. The other is Family Deluxe Cabin which has two separate rooms connected with a door like a two-room house. It can contain a maximum of 4 people.

Extra beds and single supplements are dependent on the room you choose. Please check the individual room capacity for more details.

Calypso provides you with a lunch or dinner buffet, and the cruise bar featuring rum punch, wine, and beer for extra order.

Wonderful crew, lovely boat, well-planned tour

The highlight of the cruise was undoubtedly the visit to Amazing Cave.
The food was not particularly good, but there was a good amount.

Fantastic and absolute must do

I have no complaints about Mia Nguyen from Best Travel, who planned our trip. Always prompt with responses, straightforward, and a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her to anyone.
We went for a one-night trip. We took a wonderful cruise that was named the Calypso Cruise. Excellent food, bed, and service.

Halong Bay Cruise

We enjoyed a three-day, two-night trip to Halong Bay with Calypso Cruises. Janet from BestPriceTravel organised everything and swiftly answered our queries. We truly loved our trip; the personnel looked after us well, we enjoyed the excursions, and the cuisine was excellent.

My partner and I enjoyed a two-night trip with Calypso. The ship was nicely decorated, and our room was comfy. The jacuzzi pool on the terrace was lovely. Love the breathtaking view from the sundeck. Just a minus that the quantity and quality of food should be improved.

I am considering a Calypso cruise 2 days 1 night for 2 pax on March 29th 2023. Pick up from Haiphong 29th March and drop off Hanoi 30th March. How much will it cost and can I pay at your Ho Chih Minh office on 26th or 27th March? Can I pay in Dong or must it be in US$? Thank you

@Tan Beng Teong:

You can pay in cash at our office in Saigon but should deposit first to avoid sold out all cabin. We will count by bank exchange rate at the payment time.
