Hi, our family is looking for a 3 day 2 night around Halong Bay from December the 1st. We would need a cabin with 1 double bed and a single bed for our 4 year old son. We also have twin baby girls so we would need 1 cot (we’re travelling with one travel cot so we would need you to provide the other one), is this possible?


Hi Theodore, 

It is possible to add an extra bed and a baby cot for your kids. You can take a look at Mon Cheri, Peony, or Hermes Cruise.

I wanted to find out about the cruise with the double rooms. Can we get an extra bed for the kids? 6 and 10 years old.


We can put 1 extra bed in room, so the 6 year old one will share bed with parents.
