Departure End date :
 
Day 1: Ha Long bay
 
After collection from your hotel in the Old Quarter, experience the drive to Ha Long city through the small country towns and lush farmlands of the Red River Delta. Spend some time at the City Harbor Café upon arrival before checking into your Caravella cruise around 13h00. Following the cruise briefing is a lunch of the finest seafood of the area, freshly prepared and served by your cruise chef. Meanwhile the ship begins its journey into the mythical landscape of Halong bay, believed by the Vietnamese to have been shaped as an ancient dragon made its descent into the sea. You will pass Oan Lagoon, Mat Quy (Monster) and Am Tich (Teapot) islets before visiting the mysterious and beautiful Me Cung grotto. At 16h30 visit Ti Top island, where you have the option of ascending the 427 stairs to an unparalleled view of Halong bay and one of the best photo opportunities of your cruise, or enjoying a leisurely swim in the serene waters of Ti Top beach. At 17h00 the cruise continues to the overnight anchorage area while you have the option of learning more about the wonders of Vietnamese cooking at the onboard cooking demonstration. Cooking never fails to work up an appetite, so at 19h00 a dinner to delight the senses is served in the dining area. Following dinner you have the option of trying your hand at squid fishing or making the most of happy hour at the bar. 
 
Day 2: Halong bay 
 
Rise bright and early at 6h30 to watch as the limestone karsts are painted all the colors of a Vietnamese sunrise. Refresh yourself with a morning dip in the silken green waters before a light breakfast of pastries, fresh breads and your choice of tea or coffee at the dining room. On its way to Luon cave the cruise will pass by the distinctive 'Man's Head' and 'Tortoise' islets. At Luon cave embark upon a traditional bamboo boat rowed by one of the locals, and watch with wide eyes as the beauty of the hidden lagoon is revealed. Return to the cruise around 9h00 to enjoy a last hot shower before checking out of your cabin and settling any outstanding bills. A hearty brunch is served in the dining room as the cruise begins its return to the mainland. Disembark the cruise and await your return transfer at the Harbor Cafe.

We had a great time. We had opted for a room with a balcony and it was very nice. The food was simple yet exquisite. The people were warm, caring and thoughtful! Go for this Cruise and you will not regret it.
