Ultimate guide to Ha Long Bay: hotels, tours and cruises

For many travelers, the only part of Halong they see if the bay itself and it’s a fantastic way to explore the region. Most luxury cruises offer 1 or 2 night cruises and some companies are even offering 3 and 4 night cruises. If you are coming to Halong bay just to experience the boat and what it’s like to be amongst the stunning karst formations, a one-night cruise is definitely sufficient. If you are planning to take advantage of the tours onboard, then I would personally recommend two nights.

Here are some of our favorite cruises:

What’s important to keep in mind when it comes to the cruises is all of the above cruises have the same exact itinerary, down to the tai chi classes, tea ceremonies and excursions. We recommend picking your cruise based on the room type you want to book as well as the design and spaces available on board because the ship itself is really the only difference. Planning to swim in the bay? Capella is the only overnight ship with a water slide. Want the modern yacht experience? Check out Elite of the Seas or Stellar.
