Itinerary

Hanoi - Halong Bay

Hanoi - Halong Bay

  • 09h00: You will be collected from Hanoi’s Old Quarter to take the highway to Dinh Vu Port, Haiphong where we arrive at around 11h30. Enjoy a special tea at Hera Cruise’s lounge when you arrive.
  • 12h00: Once aboard the Hera Cruise ship enjoy a Welcome Drink, receive a cruise briefing and safety instructions while we anchor in the south of Ha Long Bay, one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature’.

We have lunch before continuing our journey via the islets of Con Vit and Gia Luan. These amazing limestone karst formations rise out of the sea in an impressive manner. This area is untouched, as not many cruise ships use this route.

  • In the winter months (December to March) you may visit Viet Hai village with a guide. You will take a bicycle trip along the village path and go through rain forests and dark tunnels. Enjoy stunning scenery of rice fields on the way. Stop at the village to relax.

This cruise was the highlight of our whole trip. We were welcomed aboard by such a professional, friendly crew - but watch out, they have a dry sense of humour! The boat itself is incredibly well appointed, the ‘sun’ room we stayed in was larger and more luxurious than any of the ‘land based’ hotels we stayed in during our whole trip! The set up on board is exceptional and exactly as it looks on the website, but I think, for us, it was the crew who made the trip so memorable. They couldn’t do enough for us, but were also a huge amount of fun and we felt over the three days we built up a very quick rapport with them. Food, drink and excursions were all great and despite the huge volume of other cruise boats on Halong Bay, when on board this boat, you still feel like you have the place you yourself! Thanks team, especially Kevin, Cindy and James.

The staff was amazing, helpful and friendly, always ready to provide what you need. We enjoyed a lot. The food was great and despite the boat could be improved regarding some external aspect, the room was clean, beautiful, just what is needed to fully enjoy the beauty of Halong bay. Thanks for the experience!
