Perfect journey!

I made a great choice with the Signature Royal cruise. As it sailed into Bai Tu Long Bay, it was not as touristy as Halong Bay. The scenery is outstanding. Our cabin is spacious with a jacuzzi inside. Nice staff on board, too.
I think I'll book a 3-day tour next time as the 2-day trip was pretty short.

A journey of relaxation

This was a fun journey from start to finish. Our cabins were spectacular, each room had a jacuzzi with a bay-view window, which was amazing. The food was delicious, seafood was fresh and nicely cooked.
The manager Chien was great. He made us feel very special and welcome. Bai Tu Long Bay is peaceful… More

Peaceful trip in Bai Tu Long

We enjoyed a fantastic two-day trip aboard the Signature Royal. Our cabin was larger than most hotel rooms we stayed in on the mainland and was right at the front of the boat with a big balcony! We had some issues with the shower and got the staff to fix it. They were incredibly nice and helpful, especially… More

Nice time on board

Thanks to the staff who went above and beyond to help organize transfers for us. Stunning scenery with a great guide. On-board service and the quality of meals were excellent. The WiFi was slow, but it was not a big issue since I purchased a 4G sim card. I think the activities were a bit repetitive, but it did not bother me. Overall the trip is fantastic.

Excellent - Iris
Highly recommend

We had a trip on this cruise on July 2 & 3. The staff is very kind and helpful. The food was okay, we'd like to have a few more Vietnamese food. Interesting and well-planned schedule. Good value for money. I'll recommend this cruise for my friends.

Hi there, I would like to book a 3D2N cruise at Bai Tu Long. The Signature Royal, do you recommend it compared to the other cruises? There is a transfer from Hanoi but we are planning to come from Sa Pa. What time do we need to be at the port? There is only a transfer time on the website from Hanoi. Also if we don't use the transfer do we get any discount? Looking forward to your reply.


with 4 star cruise, you can have a look at Swan Cruise or Dragon Pearl Cruise is also go for Bai Tu Long Route. If you comeback from Sapa, you should stay one night at Hanoi because transfer from Sapa always go through Hanoi. And also bus transfer just pick up in Hanoi. If you don't use transfer is okay because on our website is already seperate price for transfer and cabin price

Is it possible for me to end the trip and travel to the airport at 16:30 for my flight at 18:00? I'm worried I may be late.

Yes you can, there will be two option for you to choose:

Option 1 : You take a bus transfer and the bus will drop you at the Mall on the way to the airport. From there you will take a taxi to the airport on your own

Option 2 : You will take a private transfer from Halong go straight to the airport
