Heritage Binh Chuan TripAdvisor Review

Heritage Binh Chuan TripAdvisor Review

In contrast, there are still some complaints about the cruise, mainly about the poor soundproofing of the rooms, poor Wi-Fi, and repetitive activities.

However, Heritage Binh Chuan also received two bad reviews in January 2023. But 1 out of 2 bad reviews is because the weather primarily affects the customer experience. So far, this luxury overnight cruise still receives excellent reviews from most customers on TripAdvisor.


Normally, the shuttle bus will pick you up between 9:00 - 9:30 and drops you off between 14:30 - 15:00 at your hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter.

Most activities/ excursions as stated in the itinerary are included in the cruise price, such as kayaking, visiting the cave, exploring the floating village, cooking class, morning vivonam...

Yes, all types of rooms have private balconies and bathtubs.

Yes, it is free.

No, it is not. You can order a drink at the bar or restaurant or take it in the mini-bar (with referring price table in the room).

Have a good time in Halong Bay

I’m very satisfied with the service on board. The staff knew that was my birthday and brought me flowers and cake for dinner. I was very surprised and happy, too. The staff was very polite and friendly. The manager Tom was very enthusiastic about making the trip pleasant for the guests. Thanks and we will recommend it to our friends.

Excellent - Lim G
A memorable journey

I went on a 2 days trip on Heritage Cruises. It was fabulous and worth the time and money I spent. The service, meals, and cabin were all good.
The aircon and facilities in the waiting areas could be improved. Waiting for others to join the shuttle bus waste so much time, it’s understandable but it still annoys me.

Can the cruise arrange a transfer for me to Cat Ba Island on the last day before the trip ends? If it's possible, how much is it?


Yes the cruise can arrange for you but with extra fee so please consider

Hi. Is it possible to take a 3 day/2 night cruise but stay on Cat Ba island on day 2 (for 2 or 3 days on Cat Ba), and then do day 3 with you to be dropped off in Tuan Chau? Or do you know of some company offer that? Thanks, Greg


The cruise is design for guest to sleep onboard so if you want to sleep on island, you should take tram or ferry to the island before take cruise will be better

I am interested in this cruise for our trip to Halong Bay on Oct 25. We want to book the Ocean Suite for 2 people. We need to be at the airport for a flight to Da Nang on Oct 27 at 16:00. Is this possible?

@Samuel M:

Yes you can, if you go from Catbi Airport, it just take 1 hour driving from Halong Bay. If you go from Noi Bai Airport, there will be 2.5 hour driving from Halong - Hanoi, but you have to take private transfer from Halong - Hanoi
