Most Luxurious Halong Bay Cruise For Couples In 2024

You two emerge onto the deck of the cruise ship, where a romantic candle-lit dinner awaits you. Lush, rustic karst formations jut out of crystal blue waters surrounding the boat. Fishing villages built atop the Bay and entrances to massive caves in the rocks add to the elegant yet intrepid feel of the place. Welcome to your romantic luxury cruise on Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world’s most stunning aquatic wonderlands.

Why are Halong Bay Luxury Cruises such great couples activities?

Before discussing specific Halong Bay luxury cruise options, let’s look at why they’re arguably the best couples activities in Vietnam.

  • The meals are made for romance. We offer private dining options in the wine cellar, providing a romantic setting with low lighting and ambiance. Of course, you can also choose from a selection of fine wines. Top it off with a delicately cooked meal for two.
  • 24-hour room service. If a couple would rather eat together in the privacy of their room, we offer room service anytime, even in the middle of the night. This is rare for offshore accommodations, even luxury cruise ships.
  • Do everything together. Our tour’s excursions and aquatic activities can be tailored for two. If you go kayaking, we’ll get you a two-seater. If you’re going on a trek through the beautiful Surprise Cave, we’ll be sure to lead you two in a private group so you can share the experience.
  • Create memories, and leave with new skills. Onboard activities like Vietnamese cuisine cooking classes or handicrafts workshops will give you new skills to take back to your life together at home.
