There are other options for cheaper cruceros, like the option of a day in Halong Bay from Hanoibut I don’t recommend it to you for anything because a day seems to me too little time for you to enjoy it completely. For us, the best thing was to live the experience of sleeping on the boat in the middle of the bay.

There is also the option to make a 3-day cruise to Halong Bay/2 nights. This is a very good option. Of course, many people insisted on us through social networks to choose this one to reach the island of Cat Ba. But at the end, as well as included in our itinerary through Vietnam Ninh Binhconsidered as the terrestrial Halong Bay, we decided to do the 2-day cruise through Halong Bay/una night.

We liked it a lot and enjoyed it a lot. So don’t worry because two days/one night is a perfect option you are going to abandon the boat with a very good taste in your mouth. Even if you can allow me more days you can, much better.

We stayed until late at night and it was amazing. Besides, we got something that I thought it would be impossible on Halong Bay: we were just up there!

Once a boat ride and before dinner, at 6:30 pm it starts vietnamese cooking course. It’s not just that we are experts in cooking, not much less. More good we give penita between fires, but the boat gives the option of having a mini express cooking course to learn how to make the typical Vietnamese rollitos and no us lo íbamos to lose ¿no?

from march to may they commented on us that after cenar there is an option to fish squid directly from the boat. As we studied in September, we didn’t see a calamar, but I’ll let you know so that you can find it for yourself at another time of the year.

How about the food on board?

One of the things that most worried us about the crucero and that marks the difference between cruceros and others is food. In our case al escoger el crucero de lujo we ate phenomenal.
