Dark wood and rich malbec hues give Mon Chéri an air of prestige, while still feeling warm and homely thanks to the plush upholstery and soft lighting. Large panoramic windows stretch across the walls of every room, meaning guests can enjoy the spectacular passing scenery from anywhere on the ship. Choose from a wide selection of spacious cabins, each complete with their own private balcony from which to enjoy your morning coffee, your evening glass of wine, and everything in between.

Mon Chérie Cruise takes guests on a unique tour route through Halong, and the quieter Lan Ha Bay area, where they will explore the emerald waters and karst islands, stopping to appreciate a special selection of caves, beaches, canals, and islets.

By Cruising with Mon Cheri Cruises, you will also be contributing to supporting children in crisis here in Vietnam. Mon Cheri Cruises is a Partner of Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation which has been working for the past 14 years to Rescue Street Kids and Children trapped in slavery and forced labor.

Excellent experience with Mon Cheri cruise

We took the Mon Cheri cruise through Lan Ha Bay and it was an amazing experience! The cabins were spacious with panoramic windows and great views, and we also had our own private balcony. As a couple, we felt like we had plenty of space and privacy.

Great!

Our family just returned from the Mon Cheri Cruise and it was absolutely amazing! We opted to make our own way to the harbor to check-in. But got the transfer back. Worth the extra money for the private transfer atleast we could have toilet breaks!

Perfect

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise on Lan Ha Bay. The jacuzzi was a great way to relax after a day of exploring the beautiful scenery. The mini golf course was also a fun diversion for the kids. While my husband loved the top deck bar and lounge. Especially, the cold Tiger beers after sunbathing and swimming all day!

Everything we expected and MORE!

The cruise is world class. The rooms are spacious and have enormous windows that gave almost panoramic views of the karst mountain formations in Halong Bay. The service is 5-star and all the activities were great. We particularly enjoyed canoeing and rappelling! The staff is very professional. The best part is that Mon Chieri upgraded our room for free! To top it all off, the company gave us a call after the cruise to say they will send a special gift to us at our hotel in Hanoi!”

We wish we could have stayed longer

It’s school break in the US so we decided to visit Halong Bay as a family. The cruise was actually recommended by a friend of my dad who had nothing but praises for Mon Chieri. It was a great bonding experience for everyone so we’re thankful we decided to go. The cruise was well organized - with very friendly staff, world-class facilities, and great food on board. Excellent choice of activities too. The only regret we had was we only booked the 2-day package. We felt like we missed some of the attractions and activities that Halong has to offer. Hopefully we can come back soon!”

For the price we paid, this cruise can’t be beat!

It was incredible, the amount of food served was exceptional and absolutely delicious. Top-notch facilities , the room we had was clean, comfortable and spacious. The top deck was perfect for relaxation with plenty of loungers. The cost for cruises in Halong bay are quite steep, but considering this is one of the most reasonable options, it was perfect for our family! The tour was breathtaking, seeing all the limestone islands and we get to kayak in such a tranquil area of Lan Ha Bay was simply amazing!”

Mon Cheri exceeded our expectations

The boat was exquisite. New, clean & finely decorated. Everything looks exactly as they were in the photos. The staff was very accommodating and the food was delightful to say the least. The activities were great: swimming, kayaking, squid fishing, cooking class, cave exploring etc. You can also arrange transfer to/from your hotel in Hanoi.”

Fun trip

We took part a two day - one night cruise in Lan Ha Bay with my girlfriend by Mon Chéri. The boat was very nice, the cabin was cosy and comfortable. Food was ok and the crew organized very exciting programs for us like kayaking on the Bay or short trekkings on some islands. Generally we were satisfied with it. We advice it for everyone.

Highly recommend!

As Halong Bay is UNESCO World Heritage New7Wonders of Nature in which I really would like to recommend you to choose Mon Cheri cruise. Mon Cheri cruise is the newest and fastest cruise ever.The bedroom is spacious and beautifully decorated. My single bed is super comfy with 2 pillows. The balcony has 2 chairs for enjoying scenery and fresh air. However, the bathroom curtain is not very thick so you can see everything inside out.After lunch, it is time for kayaking along Lan Ha Bay. The beach is clean because a cruise manager is very kind to always pick up the trashes at the beach to preserve the nature.Sunset party is great with snack, sangria and fruit juice. But we took advantage of happy hour for buy 2 get 1 free. After that, there was Vietnamese spring roll cooking class. The night ended with squid fishing. I started the second day with Taichi class in early morning, then having breakfast before going to take bamboo boat for relaxing for the up-close scenery of Cat Ba Island. Cruise manager took good care and well explained the history. For the way back, I got a limousine van with massage chair. It was too good to be true when I forgot my thing and they drop by the hotel to return it. All in all, I do recommend you to choose Mon Cheri. It’s really the impressive experience.

Great cruise!

The cruise was wonderful. We did the 2 night 3 day trip.... We all agreed the full day out on Lan Ha Bay was one of our favorite days in Vietnam. There was a great boat ride through part of the bay, kayaking, swimming, a fishing thing, tons of amazing views. On board the main boat, the crew was helpful and friendly! The food was delicious and ABUNDANT (sooo much food!). The room was nice and clean with a beautiful view.

Lovely Crew!

We booked the cruise at the last minute through our hotel and it was a great experience ever. We can't say enough good things about the crew on Mon Chéri. They were excellent, friendly and attentive, they took great care of us all the time. Our room was very comfortable and clean, with great view to outside. Kayaking and cave excursion were both interesting and fun. We loved our cruise and would certainly come back!
