With so many choices available, it is rather hard to answer which one is “The Best Cruise” of Halong Bay. But depending on what category of cruise you are looking for, Discover Halong can roughly vote out for these below cruise options.
Day Cruise: Emeraude Cruise is on top
Emeraude Cruise is the unique when it comes to day cruise. While most other cruise such as Image Day Cruise, Alova Day Cruise or Phoenix Day Cruise uses a different vessel (which is option smaller in scale and not as beautifully decorated), Emeraude uses the same vessel for both day cruise and overnight cruise. The food standard as well as the cruise program is the same, which makes Emeraude truly stand out from the rest. The only disadvantage is that you will need to take a private car since there is no shuttle bus service available for Emeraude day cruise, which may make the cruise trip a bit pricey.
Best Value Cruise: Glory Cruise is ideal option for budgeted travelers
At approximately $110 per person for 2 day 1 night trip with food and all activities included, Glory Cruise tops the list when it comes to value cruise. The amenities on board can match that of any other cruise in the deluxe range but the price is only a fraction. Glory Cruise offers both 2 day 1 night and 3 day 2 nigh trip and is planning to focus its operation to Bai Tu Long Bay – the less crowded part of Halong Bay area.
Best Luxury Cruise: Paradise Peak Cruise
If you are used to world class service and would expect the same service type in Halong Bay, then definitely go for the Peak. Paradise Cruises Company is a team of vessel with all 5 star quality, and among their cruises inclunding Paradise Explorer, Paradise Privelege, Paradise Luxury and Paradise Peak, the Peak definitely ranks on top of all others. The cruise is artistically designed with a cozy touch. With only 8 cabins on board, you are sure to be served to the fullest details. Each cabin or guest group will have a personal butler who will take care and help you with a perfect cruise trip.
Best 3 Days 2 Nights Cruise: The Au Co Cruise
Launched in 2012, The Au Co of Bhaya Cruises Company is the first steel boat in Halong Bay offering continuous three-day cruise in a single trip through the Gulf of Tonkin, covering all three bays including Halong Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay, Lan Ha Bay & Cat Ba Island. While other cruise operators use the same boats for 2 days 1 night trip, The Au Co Cruise’s vessels are dedicated solely for 3 days 2 nights trip so you can be assured of the professionalism in route designing and activities planning. In addition to bringing the guests to the most remote parts of the area to provide them with an exclusive itinerary, The Au Co features state of the art design in safety and luxury with private cabins each with fully equipped bathrooms and panoramic balconies.
Best Activities Cruise: Dragon Pearl has it all
It is no wonder Dragon Pearl often ranks so high on Trip Advisor and frequently recommended by world travelers. The cruise surpasses all others in terms of activities it offers despite maintaining a similar price level. Not only does the cruise operate exclusively in the more pristine part of Halong Bay – Bai Tu Long Bay, but it also organizes it program in an unique way. For example, dinner can be enjoyed in a cave in the second night of a 3 days 2 nights trip and also, tourists can enjoy a water puppet performance on the way back from Halong Bay to Hanoi.
