To find the biggest and safeest you can have look at Scarlet Pearl, Indochine Cruise... If you have more time you should do 2 nights program that provide you more activities and discover in deep to Halong. The main different between 1 night and 2 night is the activities on 2nd day. You can do more kayaking, swimming, biking...
