Outstanding Signature

My husband and I stayed at Signature Royal on our honeymoon. Everything was wonderful, and the personnel was really kind. two thumbs up

Excellent - Christine Lane
Amazing cruise in Halong Bay

The boat has a stunning style that resembles a regal retreat. This is the ideal way to round off our vacation to Vietnam. Excellent service and a very pleasant schedule. I'll bring my folks here the next time.

Excellent - Alisa Preets
value for the money

value for the money We chose to go a little above budget to reserve Signature Royal, and we were not let down. The cruise is well-maintained, clean, and completely furnished while not being brand-new.

Excellent - Mr.Brett Bouwer
Smooth program

The program ran smoothly. When I took a culinary lesson like that in the past, the instructors made it really enjoyable and engaging. The food was good.

Excellent - Mattliu
2 day schedule Signature

We had a great time throughout our two days at Signature. Since the ship is not as large as the surroundings, we may enjoy our solitude. The accommodations were excellent and cozy. It was simply too much food. Thank you very much for your wonderful welcome, team. shall return!

Hi, I am interested in the Halong Bay Signature Cruise 2 Days / 1 Night cruise, are you able to provide more information about this cruise? Thank you!

1. What is the 2 Days 1 Night itinerary for this cruise?  1. The itinerary on the website indicates this cruise goes to Bai Tu Long bay, Vung Vieng fishing village, and Thien Canh Son cave. However, some other operators indicated that the cruise will go to Surprising Cave, Titov Island, and Luon Cave. Which itinerary is correct / updated?

2. Is there any kayaking activity for this cruise, for example kayaking to Vung Vieng village? Are the fees for kayaking included?

3. If a 2 way transfer from Da Nang is included 1. Can the pick up location be at Da Nang Grand Tourane Hotel (252 Vo Nguyen Giap, Son Tra, Danang, Viet Nam) 2. What time must we be ready for the bus? 3. What time will we reach back? 3. Food on cruise 1. Does this cruise provide vegetarian food? 2. For non-vegetarian food, is there an option for no beef? 3. Are the vegetarian and non-vegetarian food on the cruise served in buffet style? 4. How much is the drinks package? Can we just have non-alcoholic drinks?


Hello Mark,

From 1 Nov Signature fix the program to Bai Tu Long bay (so before 1 Nov it still run for Halong bay classic so you can see some different information.

The shuttle bus of cruise only pick up & drop off at hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter (can not pick up from Da Nang). You should flight to Hanoi 1 day earlier or take earliest flight to Hanoi that arrive before 8:00 AM.

Kayaking is already included, you dont need to pay extra.

Boat can provide special food as you mention. 

For drink please take order on boat, the dont have any pre-order package.

Hello, I am visiting Halong Bay. I would like to know if Signature Cruise - Bai Tu Long Bay 2D1N (Junior Suite - twin) is available on 03 Sept 2022 for booking.

@Leow Lea:

Yes we still have cabin available on 3 Sep 2023 but in summer between May - Sep they do not operate Bai Tu Long Bay. Instead they visit main Halong Bay (Sung Sot & Titop)
