Charter Cruise

Cruise Information

The third kind of Halong Bay cruises are the chartered cruises. You can take either the Junk cruises or the Luxury cruises on chartered tours. You choose the ship and have some say about the itinerary.

Most of the chartered cruises are three or four day trips, mainly because the area the ships sail is not vast. Some of the cruises are only two day cruises. Sometimes people take small chartered junk boats out with as little as two people. This is a very intimate type of vacation.

Halong Bay cruises are available on a two main types of ships - the luxury ships and the junk boats. However, the varieties of sights you will see are endless. There are so many physical features of the Bay and nearby areas that you will probably never notice them all. That is why it is nice if you can take more than one cruise on Halong Bay.
