    What to Expect
    Day 1: Hanoi – Halong Bay (L, D)

    Your air-conditioned shuttle bus will collect you from your Hanoi Old Quarter Hotel between 7:45 and 8:15am for the 3.5-hour journey to Tuan Chau pier, your jump-off point from Halong Bay. A tender boat will transfer you to the cruiser: enjoy a refreshing welcome drink and check into your cabin. Set sail at 1pm and enjoy a delicious fresh seafood lunch (vegetarian options available on request). You'll cruise past Dog Head and Swan Islands, the floating villages of Ba Hang, and Dinh Huong and Thumb Islands, before we set anchor at Luon Cave for an hour's sea-kayaking trip. Around 4pm, you'll cruise to Titop Island to swim, sunbathe, or catch panoramic views from the island's peak. As the sun sets over the bay, return to the boat to enjoy complimentary coffee, tea, and fruit, or purchase your favorite drink from the on-board bar. Enjoy a seafood dinner at 7pm, then enjoy drinks from the bar or try your hand at squid fishing before bed.

    Overnight onboard in Halong Bay

    Day 2: Halong Bay – Hanoi (B, L)

    Wake on-board ship to a dazzling view and enjoy an early breakfast between 7 and 7:45am, before exploring the dramatic Surprising Cave with your guide. At 10am, check out of your cabin as the boat begins cruising back to harbor, passing startling views such as Fighting Cocks Island and Incense Burner Islet. Learn how to make authentic Vietnamese spring rolls at the onboard cooking demonstration, before enjoying an early lunch at 10:45am. Your tender boat will collect you at 11:20am and transfer you to Tuan Chau pier, where you board the shuttle to return to Hanoi. You'll arrive at your hotel around 4pm.
