BestPrice Travel's review



  • Brand new cruise offers the most modern facilities, integrated all 5-star service massage & sauna, mini golf course, wines & cigars cellar that bring high-class experience to customers.
  • The cruise's infinity outdoor pool is larger than most others on the same route in Lan Ha Bay 
  • The room provides private balconies and a terrace equipped with tea set tables and a wide-range scenery view.


  • The pool temperature is around 28 degrees that in the winter is a bit cold for some people and children 




  • Overall, the itinerary is the same as almost other cruises to discover Lan Ha Bay natural destinations, however, the cruise offers auxiliary entertainment services which make the trip not boring like fitness, joining in the golf course, soaking in the Celestial Pool area, and exciting night activities as showing night movies. 


  • The one-night itinerary is a bit short. Would recommend two nights instead to fully admire all the further spots in Lan Ha Bay 


Foods & beverages


  • Food is one of the factors that make up this 5-star cruise class. They blend the Western food culture and the seafood flavors of Halong Bay in all meals. You will enjoy a 7-course Italian set menu for lunch and an 8-course dinner combining Asian and European flavors.

Truly Elite!

Elite of the Seas Cruise 2 day was an exceptional voyage. The luxurious amenities, spacious cabins, and gourmet dining made us feel like VIPs. The attentive staff ensured every need was met. The excursion options were diverse, and the views of Halong Bay were breathtaking. This cruise defines elegance and indulgence, and we couldn't have asked for a more elite experience.

The cruise is great so far. Thank you for checking and for your recommendation! We got lucky to see the sunset even if it was cloudy in the afternoon.

Elite of the Seas in my eyes

It is one of the newest ferries in Halong Bay, with modern facilities and a wide variety of meals. Every staff member is friendly and attentive, creating an unprecedented experience of honor and luxury when combined with the incredible beauty of Halong Bay. The journey began with a hotel pickup in Hanoi,… More

The most excellent cruise experience one can have in Ha Long Bay

We embarked on a 3-day and 2-night voyage with Elite of the Sea, and it was, without a doubt, the most outstanding cruise in Ha Long Bay. Although the sight of the limestone structures was awe-inspiring, what distinguished this cruise from others was the exceptional level of service and quality of cuisine… More

Hello! I'm looking to book a cruise on Elite of the Seas in December and just wondering whether I can add the transfer package later on if I don't know yet whether we will be in Ninh Binh or Hanoi the day before the cruise? Thank you!


Yes you can inform to our travel consultant if you want to add the transfer or not if you have specific detail. But you have to inform at least 3 days to make sure the transfer is available because on December is peak season

I wanted to fly into hanoi the morning of the 29th august at 7:30am and get private transfer to ha long bay terminal? I think its 3 hrs app so arrive 11:30am Is this possible to still get on board the cruise. I wanted to do the elite of the seas 3 days /2 nights? Please advise what is the latest the cruise leaves.


If you arrive with domestic flight, i think you can still have change to get to the cruise to check in in time. The check in time normal from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm so if you can get out of the airport around 8:30 am without any delay from the flight , you can go to Halong to check in at around 11:30 am

1. Can I add an extra bed to accommodate three people in one room? 2. If Possible, what is the single person surcharge? Do I need to pay on-site? 3. I heard that elites can get connecting rooms, should I fill out the request form if I want a connecting room?


1. Yes you can add

2. It's depend on type of the cabin you will book. All the payment have to be complete before you get on cruise

3. Yes you can, you just make a request and the room is belong to you
