Have a cozy time on this cruise

Have a 2-day trip to Halong Bay with Garden Bay. The cruise is recently renovated so everything is new. The wooden decoration makes the room feel cozy. I have a very peaceful time on this tour. Really appreciate the help of the staff here.

Wonderful trip in Halong Bay

Everything was wonderful. Delicious food, and a lovely crew on board, but the cabin is quite small. But in return, the room has a window overlooking the bay, the view is great

Excellent - Ms. Camelia Jauray

I had 2D1N with premium deluxe on this cruise in Bai Tu Long Bay and everything was unforgettable. I was surprised by the stunning beauty of this land. The cabin was comfortable and all the meals were delicious. Will come back if having time!
