Many guests were extremely joyful on the way to Halong Bay and instantly got shock after seeing their cabins. Indeed, you cannot be at ease sleeping within a 5m2 space for several days, luggage included. Usually, average budget boats are built on the limited space format with singular cabins or only one double cabin resided next to the engine room, kitchen and pantry. Besides the lack of privacy, your nose will be challenged by different odd scents of food, oil and washing powder all day long.
5. UNSTABLE SAFETY HANDLING
Normally, sun deck is the underline possession of every cruise. We bet that you may not want to cramp yourself on a jammed sundeck without relaxing chairs or at least some personal space to relax and unwind.
Safety is more or less a challenging matter to most tour operators in the Bay. In practice, both average budget and high-end cruise companies have been striking their best to ensure safety on board. However, larger vessels are still under better standard for operation with higher maintenance expense and more comprehensive technical team.
For your own safety and comfort, please consider cruise options carefully and raise your voice at any time regarding the standard matters before making any decisions.
SENS ASIA’ S TRAVEL ADVICES
Instead of half-day, full-day or regular packages, let’s further personal touch on the unusual 2-day-1-night route or the tangible 3-day-2-night journey upon most stunning remote areas of Halong Bay. If you choose the 3-day-2-night cruises (which you definitely should), please note that one of your days is spent on a day boat which is simply a smaller version of your main boat. You return to the main boat by early afternoon after you spend some time kayaking, swimming and exploring bays further out of the way.
