Itinerary details  

Day 1: Hanoi – Halong (L, D)

8:00: Optional Pick up at your hotel in Hanoi center, transfer to Halong Bay.

12:00: The boat sets sail to cruise into the Bay. Find yourself getting acquainted with the facilities onboard. A delectable buffet lunch with a feast of choices is served in the restaurant. Savour your first hours in Halong Bay on the sun deck by simply let your eyes wander around the scenery.

We arrive at the area of Cua Van floating fishing village. From here we start to explore a cave, named Tien Ong, and the floating fishing village. Tien Ong is the most recently explored cave. It shows evidences of human civilization dating back to 10,000 – 8,000 BC. The cave is just 5 meters above sea level, 50 meters deep and covers 1000 square meters. Our guide takes you on a loop though the cave and explains about the historical findings and the cave’s particularities.
The voyage continues to the fishing village. With a small bamboo boat rowed by the local people we move around in the calm sea of this secluded area and gain an insight into the village life.
After returning to the boat we sail to the overnight mooring area Luom Bo. During this time Halong Bay reveals its most magnificent beauty - we call it the “blue hour”. Rewind on the sun deck with a drink of your choice and let the moment sink in. During the sailing time our Chef demonstrates as well the preparation of particular Vietnamese dishes. Feel free to join and practice by yourself.
Dinner is served in the restaurant either à la carte or buffet style. Afterwards the night is yours to kick-back and abundantly enjoy these unique moment amidst a surreal landscape. A presentation in our dining area with more interesting facts and insights on Halong Bay is also offered after dinner. We wish you a good night in Halong Bay where once upon a time Dragons played with sparkling jewels.

Day 2: Halong – Hanoi (B)

For early risers (~6.30 o’clock) tea, coffee and pastries are available at the restaurant area. A Tai Chi class is offered on the sundeck again to ease mind and muscles.
The boat continues to sail to Titop Island. We set over by tender to this little landmass in the bay. Prepare yourself for a refreshing morning swim on a sandy beach beneath high rock formations. If you prefer to be more active climb up to the hill top of Titop Island from where you have stunning views over Halong Bay (it is 400 stone steps up which takes about 20 minutes to the top, minimal fitness and proper footwear is required). There is also a viewing platform about half-way up with great panoramic views.

Back on board (around 8:45 o’clock) you may like to shower and freshen up. Now it is time to enjoy the last sailing time back to the harbor. A full breakfast is served in the dining room. Relax on the sun deck or dine in the restaurant while savoring the last cruise moments of this iconic site before arriving back on shore at around 11:00am. The crew will bid you farewell and you disembark with our tender boat to Tuan Chau Marina.

15:30: Arrive Hanoi, end of services.

Customer reviews

from Australia on Aug 6, 2014
" the staff reall helpful."
Cabin and boat were fantastic and the staff reall helpful.

we had a massage and the ambience was not very good with no relaxing music. The walk to the top of the hill should have been mandatory to wear shoes as it was dangerous coming down in sandals.
from Australia on Jun 6, 2014
"thank you for very much!"
We had a great time so thank you for very much!

Weren't aware of toilet stop half way
from Singapore on May 28, 2014
" thank you."
It was very good cruise, thank you.

1. Cruise Quality: 8/10 (for the price)
2. Dining/ Food on the board: 9/10
3. Cabin Quality: 8/10 (large bathroom above expectation, little small bedroom was around expectation)
4. Staff on board: 9/10 (waiter/waitress they should teach how to put the plate in right direction, and the plate is too wide compared to table and the table mat setup to get better mark)
5. Activities: 8/10

We sometimes go budget, sometimes go luxury - this time, I expected the cruise accommodation as mid-luxury class for us from the price, and above marks are according to that.

"Friendly"
Friendly, cozy, balcony, spacious bath & toilet.
The cruise manager was great and really professional.

We were almost satisfied with Jasmine Cruise except for what descried below:

Boring short trip to the beach on the second day
Shortage of hot running water for shower
Same kind of food every meal
No tooth brush & paste
from Singapore on May 19, 2014
" beautifu"
Halong Bay was breathtakingly beautiful, and service onboard the cruise was impeccable. We were also lucky to have beautiful weather.

Problems with aircon in the driver's car; coupled with the hot weather, the car trip was not comfortable throughout the whole trip.

"Thank you "
Thank you for all your support for my wonderful trip at Halong bay!
Unfortunately in the morning it was heavy rain in Hanoi but we embarked the Jasmine, the weather was just cloudy and misty. It created the mystic atmosphere, just like a Chinese pictures.

Also thank you for your advice for swimming, it was a little bit cold but I could swim at the beach.
