Hi Depend on cruise you book the the expected time to be in Hanoi is different If you book the Phoenix Cruise for example, the expected time to be in Hanoi is 20h00 If you book the Swan Cruise, the expected time to be in Hanoi is 19h00 So if you have the train to Lao Cai after Halong Tour, it is high recommend for you to book the high quality Cruise ( Swan, Jadesails,...) since the bus follow the highway, then to be in Hanoi sooner
