We will be on a celebrity cruise in Jan. We have booked a Halong bay overnight cruise leaving from there. We will get a taxi from the port when we get off the Celebrity ship. Is it easy to get a taxi back to the Celebrity ship after we get off? Are there lots of available taxis? Do we need to book in advance?

@Christine Lloyd:

Hi! If it's not the public holiday, the taxi is always available at the port. You should ask the cruise receptionist to help you get a taxi so you can avoid unexpected scam for taxi fee.
