    Modern cruise with luxury designs, wide spaces and balconies will bring you a comfortable and relaxing stay. 

    The next criteria you should consider is the size of the cruise in Halong Bay. The large boats with more than 10 cabins and lots of tourists will match with young travelers and group tourists. Additionally, these boats’ overnight tours often organize crowd activities such as parties, live music, etc.

    Conversely, you want to have a peaceful experience and enjoy Halong Bay at night, please book a smaller boat for you and your beloved one.
