Halong bay day cruise

We are on a large cruise ship (Millenium, Celebrity Cruises) in March 2013. We want to do a luxury junk cruise but only for one full day and not overnight. The reason for this is that the ship sails the next day at 1pm so we need to be back on board by 1200 lunchtime at the very latest and the overnight junk cruises make me a bit nervous of not getting back in time.

The trip the ship is offering is only 3:45 hrs and is expensive for what it is.

Can anyone suggest a good company who do full day cruises? I have looked for ages and can only find overnighters.

Try contacting a tour agent in Hanoi. We used Handspan on Ma May street. They may be able to advise, most tour operators do day trips from Hanoi but I don't recall the names of other operators.

most of cruises have full day trip, for day trip I think you don't need to spend so much money on luxury cruise. I think you just take group tour with some cruises as: Alova, Golden lotus about 35-40$/pax (depends on kayaking)

Depends I suppose on where your cruiseship is berthed and how far that is from Ha Long Bay. Normal day tours are organised as Jo says from Hanoi but that is a 4 hour coach ride each way to Ha Long Bay. Suggest you quiz your cruiseboat about actual time you will get on the bay itself.

Cheap day tours of Ha Long are just not worth the trouble, so I suggest yo pay at least $50 to be safe and unherded.

We are cruising on the Millenium to the same destination in February. Have a look at this blog ... …malaysia-asia.my/2011/04/bai-chay-tourist-w… ... Chartering your own junk looks like an inexpensive option.
