Departure End date :
 
Day1: Hanoi - Halong bay (L/D)

08.00 – 08.30:   You are collected from your hotel and begin the three hour drive through the lush scenery of the farmlands surrounding the Red River Delta
 
12.00 – 12.30:    Step onboard and following the cruise briefing your boat will embark on its journey into Halong bay
 
13.00 – 15.30:    Feast your eyes as well as your stomach at your first meal of the cruise. Keep an eye out for the passing Fighting Cock, Dog Rock and Incense Burner islets
 
15.30 – 17.30:   Visit Amazing Cave, and allow it to live up to its name
 
17.30 – 19.00:    Laze in our reclining deck chairs up on the sundeck, and catch the last rays of the day. Make sure to capture the stunning Halong bay sunset on camera, or experience it a little closer with a swim in the pristine seas. Pair a lesson in Vietnamese cooking with free wine at our onboard cooking demonstration. 
 
19.00:    A sumptuous dinner is served to the music of the waves and the singing of the stars. The boat anchors in a tranquil area and a range of evening activities are open to your preference; night squid fishing with the crew, karaoke, dancing or a spot of moonbathing as you appreciate the nightscape 
 
Day 2: Halong bay - Hanoi (B/L)

10.00 – 11.00: Begin the return to harbor, watch as the islets one by one slip back into the horizon. Disembark around 11h00 and take some time to stretch your legs on the mainland before your transfer will take you back to Hanoi
 
12.00 – 16.30: Drive back across the farmlands of the Red River Delta, and keep an eye out for some of the quirks of Vietnamese traffic. The trip concludes with drop off at your hotel, around 16:30

Calypso Cruiser - Oriental Sails - We could not have had a better experience!
Reviewed 25-07-2013 12:05:09
Was this review helpful?
Yes
I had emailed the folks at Oriental Sails directly based on a recommendation from an acquaintance. I explained that my wife and I were travelling for a year-long honeymoon, and we were lucky enough to have my parents with us in Vietnam for the month of Feb. We were looking for a boat which was fun, yet professional... karaoke until dawn and beer pong isn’t really our style. We wanted my folks feeling comfortable, and didn’t mind paying for it. Responses were always prompt and we were assured a great time for both us and our parents. The ride from Hanoi to Halong was easy, and we were transferred from the van to the boat taxi within 3 minutes of arriving. The boat taxi then took us to the Calypso Cruiser - our home for the next 2 nights, a beautiful boat with a max capacity of 24. Every meal was incredible. We all tried seafoods we never normally eat (mussels and squid) and felt very comfortable doing so. Food was delicious in taste and mind-blowing in presentation. The guides and staff were amazing. Anything we needed, no problem! On the second day we were transferred to a smaller boat and then taken out for as much kayaking as we wanted. I know some people complain that this boat isn’t as nice as the Calypso, and it isn’t....but if most of your day is spent kayaking or rock climbing (the other option) what does it matter? Again, it was still clean, and the staff and meals were fantastic! The kayaking was some of the best I have ever done - although I would have loved to go climbing too...maybe next time. During the second evening, the staff asked for every ones attention and then presented my wife and I with a cake and a small gift for our honeymoon. It was a very thoughtful and generous gesture... I would very highly recommend Calypso Cruiser if you are taking in Halong Bay. I would strongly advise you to book 3-day, 2-night. I cannot imagine how quick our trip would have been over if we had only booked 1-night. Just one heads up...do not bother bringing your own booze aboard...there is a pretty hefty service charge, and for that short of time it just isn’t worth it...beers are still only $2-$2.50...
