Steel type: Usually ships of 4 and 5 stars line often use steel shell design. This is to create modern, majestic, new looks. Cruises of this type are: Au Co; Star Light, Emotion; Emeraude...

All night cruises operating on Ha Long Bay must be equipped with life jackets in the cabin. If you do not find it, you should inform the ship manager immediately.

4: Select the schedule

Era Cruise - Lan Ha Bay

There are a variety of schedule for a cruise trip in Halong Bay to suit travelers’ expectation. The following are some of the itineraries for you to refer to:

  • Visiting Halong Bay only: Au Co; Star Light, Emotion, V'spirt; Oriental Sails; Huong Hai; Bai Tho; Golden Lotus Garden; Garden bay...
  • Visit Bai Tu Long Bay - Lan Ha Bay - Halong Bay: Like Era cruise, but to go all three places of the bay, you usually have to register under the program 03 days - 02 nights. Usually 3-day trip of any ship goes on this a journey.

5: Choosing a cabin when you attend Cruise

You can choose from a variety of cabinets. Whether with no window, cabin with sea view or suite with private balcony. Each cabin comes with different equipment and cost.

  • If you travel with children you should choose the ship or cabin without private balcony. This is to ensure safety, in addition should choose the cabin far from the engine room to avoid noise.
  • If you are a seasick you should choose cabin on the lower floor. Or cabin arranged in the middle of the ship to minimize vibration.
  • If going by couple you should choose rooms with private balcony to enjoy the romantic moment. You can enjoy watching the sunset and sunrise in a private space (Au Co, Victoria Star, Paradise).
