FAQs

Are drinks included in the price?

No. Drinks, tips and other personal expenses are not included in our Halong Bay cruise price, so you’ll need to cover these costs separately.

Can I request a vegetarian meal on the cruise?

Of course, provided we have the ingredients you require. Let us know in advance and we will do our best.

Can we check in onto the cruise after 1 p.m.?

Our check-in time is at 11.30 a.m. We can arrange an extra boat to transfer you to the cruise if you are late, but you will need to cover the extra cost for the private transfer.

Can we request to have meals at the sundeck instead of at the restaurant?

Sure, just let us know in advance as space for meals at the sundeck is limited.

Do I need to pay any extra fees when I visit caves with you?

The meals, except drinks, are included in the price. You only need to pay for the drinks or any extra food you may want to order.

Do you cater for special dietary requirements?

Does the staff speak English or should I learn Vietnamese?

All our staff members speak English, so you’ll have no problem communicating with us during your time on board our cruise. However, we will appreciate any Vietnamese that you can use in conversations with us!

Is there a life jacket on the boat?

Yes, we have life jackets for all guests on board and our staff is trained in emergency procedures.

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!”

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.

Wonderful Trip

We went on Mon Chéri as apart of our honeymoon. The service was amazing and food outstanding. Our bartenders catered to our every need. We were even spoiled with a honeymoon cake and gift! Thanks Mon Chéri for a great trip to an amazing place.

Great Experience!

We booked a 2 day, 1 night cruise in Halong Bay with Mon Chéri boat and it was one of the best decisions we have made. It took us only 2 hours drive to Lan Ha Bay including a short break at the crafts center for toilet and shopping. The boat was at the perfect size. The cabin was lovely and spacious for a cruise with well-equipped bathroom. The staffs were super friendly and attentive, they made everything become easy. We really enjoyed all the activities (swimming and kayaking in Three Peach beach area, boat rowing to Dark and Bright cave, …). We will definitely come back and do this again.

Amazing Halong cruise!

Thanks to Mon Chéri cruise and your team. We had a great and memorable time in Lan Ha Bay forever. It was a regret that I could book 3 day 2 night cruise instead of 2 day 1 night. The boat was very charming with just around 20 guests on boat. The itineraries were really well organized so we were not rush to join. Our cabin was lovely with jacuzzi, bath tub and private balcony. The staff was always hard-working, funny and kind. The most activity I like on this cruise was the best dinner with Vietnamese tradition music play. I would definitely choose Mon Chéri if I come back!

Highly recommened

From the moment we got on the ship to the moment we got off the staff couldnt do enough! The food was amazing and the staff prior asked for any special needs as they cater for all. The kayaking around Halong bay, beach, and going in the caves is not to be missed!! The entertainment throughout dinner set a perfect evening with the staffs watching the sunset on the bay. They went out after work and spent time teaching us how to squid fish, teach us some vietnamese and in turn learn some english. 
The rooms were very spacious and clean with a spectacular view. A great experience all around.

A great time in Halong Bay

We took a two day tour with Mon Cheri and it was a lovely and great experience. The boat is really good, cabins are comfortable and the crew is friendly and helpful. Special thank to our guide, a great person and with a lot of passion for what she does. We recommend this company and Halong Bay

Amazing stay

We get picked up on the mini bus, given refreshments and head down to the bay. The staff were so polite and helpful making things really enjoyable. The food was at great quality for the whole trip! Our room was spotless, bathroom was massive and immaculate.
The activists you can take part in are well thought of and exciting!! Especially the cooking class we had great fun.
I would highly recommend this cruise as everything was perfect!

Good job, Mon Cheri!

We booked a 2 days, 1 night tour on the cruise and everything was arranged to perfection. The cabins were huge, spotless clean and comfortable. The food was very good and carefully prepared. There were also a list of activities to take part in (visiting caves, kayaking, happy hour at sunset, cooking lessons, thai chi at dawn, visits to war-time refuges in Cat Ba, spa treatments…) so we never got bored! Most of all though, we have appreciated the attentiveness of the Mon Cheri Cruises staff, who has been great in providing excellent customer service. Well done!

Cruise with smiles!

It’s my very first time on a luxury cruise overnight on ocean, and i can’t say enough about their great service and warmest welcome. Room is big with wide view and useful balcony. Huge bathroom and very comfortable. The food was good and the itinerary was smart. Highly recommend to everyone looking for Halong Bay visit.

Lovely cruise with excellent team

The ship looked new with excellent facilities and the staff is very passionate and helpful. There were a plenty of activities (kayaking, cooking, fishing, Cat Ba Island visit). We highly recommend MonChéri cruise for their top-notch service, smiles and kindness! We wished we had an extra night onboard as we loved it! Cheers to Hoang, our day trip organizer.

Wish we had booked longer!

If you’re looking for a Ha Long Bay overnight cruise, this is the one!
We booked a two day cruise. Meals were good. Not very authentic Vietnamese, but accommodating to people of all flavors. Dont be afraid to ask for more. They are more than happy to oblige. 
Great for small intimate groups. 
The rooms were clean and comfy. The only complaint was it took quite long to get them cool, and they hardly got cool enough. 
There was a cooking class also. The music band played during dinner. We really wish we had done the 3 day cruise.

A beautiful boat and staffs with heart!

We took a 2night/3day trip. The cruise was immaculate and beautifully arranged. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The food was fantastic.The weather cooperated! But the best thing was the staffs, I think. They were so friendly, so hard working and so genuinely dedicated to doing a good job. This is a luxury cruise experience and it is affordable. If you have the chance, try it!

Beautiful views, modern facilities & superb service

We booked a two day cruise and would highly recommend it. The service on the cruise was fantastic. Our room was modern and spacious, with a balcony which was a great spot to sit down and admire the view. Meals were tasty & very generous (5 courses!). We really enjoyed the tours (kayaking, and to the Hospital Cave on Cat Ba) with a knowledgeable guide. There are also a range of activities to take part in on the ship, and we’d recommend taking part in as many as you can as they were all fun (in particular, squid fishing on the first evening was great). The whole staff team were consummately professionals.

Thanks for a great trip

We stayed for 3 days – 2 nights on the Mon Chéri cruise. The third day is a must!!! We went deeper in the bay on the day boat, biked on Cat Ba island to reach the small village Viet Hai. Because we were only two for the middle day, we hiked on the mountain with our amazing guide Binh to get the best view on the bay! The lunch on the boat was delicious and authentic (seafood, barbecue, soup, vegetables and fruits). The crew (all from Cat Ba) was very welcoming and warming. A big thank to Cuong, Lich, Hoa and also the chef, Luyen, for the delicious food on the day boat!!

Premium experience

We arrived at the boat to be greeted by the crew waving to us and their hospitality never ended until we got back in our car to return to Hanoi. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The meals were perfect and the activities were well organised. A very enjoyable couple of days (we did the 2 night cruise) and would recommend it to anyone half interested in seeing this beautiful Halong Bay. Mon Cheri is definitely 5 star.

The 5 Star trip

My just-married wife and I decided to take in a 2 night/3 day Halong Bay Cruise whilst visiting Vietnam on our honeymoon, and everything about the Mon Cheri Cruise was absolutely 5 star.
The staff were very friendly and attentive to all our needs and desires. 
Lovely surprises were in store for us, as the staff had decorated our room to mark our occasion, and also surprised us by dimming the lights at dinner on our first evening, and presented us with a celebratory wedding cake. Brilliant touches Mon Cheri !!!
The itinerary was also excellent. Plenty to do, and loaded with variation.
Would definitely recommend this boat to my friend if they are considering a cruise in Halong Bay.

A hidden gem

I was impressed about Halong bay with Mon Chéri cruise. From timely pick-up to drop-off by a Limousine, everything was smooth and very well organized. The rooms are spacious, luxurious and comfortable. The crew was super friendly and helpful, especially a waiter who name Bon was doing great. Highly recommend!

It was just perfect ! Although we are vegan, but once giving them the notice, everyday we had special meals that were just AWESOME in Vietnamese style… That was soooo good. Everybody was very helpful, kind, and friendly! They did everything to make us happy. The boat is new, very beautiful. The activities were great. We highly recommend that cruise !!

Beautiful

The cruise was beautiful. Our room was special with a private balcony where we can enjoy the perfect sunsets (and sunrise). The food was incredible and the activities lots of fun. We did 2night/3day and I wish it was longer. I had a full body massage with hot stones and after that I felt so good. I loved it!
I will suggest to add more interactions with locals at Cat Ba island, to know more about their lives and make this trip more cultural and interesting.

5 stars, the perfect choice

We have a 2-day cruise with Mon Cheri. The service, as so often in Vietnam, is just incredibly good. We were picked up with a luxury bus (on time) and could enjoy the ride in leather seats and free Wi-Fi. Already on arrival, the employees waved to us and at lunch time we knew what a great choice we met. For lunch there was already a 6 course menu; from shrimp to spring rolls to chicken everything was there. What I remembered most positively was the fact that it was still loose in terms of dress code (wearing shorts at dinner). The ship itself was still very new and to the complete satisfaction. From the upper deck you had a beautiful view of Halong Bay. The cabin was a dream. With only 1 night you did not know what to do first. There was also a cooking class, night fishing, kayaking and a cave tour.
As a farewell there was even a cashmere scarf. As a result, there can be only 5 stars here!

A luxury cruise

We did the one-night cruising and it was simply wonderful. From the beginning to the end. The spectacular treatment, the delicious and elegant food, the fantastic excursions … everything.
We had a problem with our room and it was not working well the air conditioning … we have complained and although they fixed, in the end they changed our room and we got the 303 …. wonderful, huge, with jacuzzi and sofa Massages … spectacular.
Thanks to Mr. Huong for making the cruise so perfect for everyone, you are amazing!
