Best honeymoon vacation to Halong Bay

We had an amazing honeymoon with the Paloma cruise. The crew arranged a pretty cake for us. You must visit Halong for the best nature.

Excellent - Ms. Angela Leigh
Decent food. Amazing cruise.

Paloma cruise was a lot of fun and the staff were all very friendly and professional. I loved the spectacular views of Halong Bay. You would absolutely love the local cuisine and meals onboard. That's amazing!

Excellent - Mr. Ted
Best for weekend getaway

I took an overnight Halong cruise last week and was really impressed by the scenery. The first time I saw this wonderful bay, I admired it. The cruise staff and services were both great. Thank for BestPrice's suggestion!

Best choice to stay overnight in Halong

I spent last weekend on a 2-day cruise with Paloma. It was a lovely junk boat and the crews were pleasant. I loved the activities on and off-board in Bai Tu Long Bay. The weather in April was sunny and still cool. Highly recommend!

We are planning a Paloma Cruise from Hanoi on Dec 1/22 but we need to know an approximate time that we will be vack in Hanoi as we are planning to fly to Da Nang on the 2nd (or 3rd) depending on our return time.


You can back to Hanoi Airport about 15:30 PM so lets book flight later than 17:30.
