Can you pick me up from my hotel in Hanoi?

Yes, we can! We’re ready to pick you up from any hotel in or near Hanoi Old Quarter with our comfortable 9-seater limousine (Orchid Limousine DCar). The service is not included in your cabin price, so please get in touch with us to find out the current price for the transfer.

Is the trip between Hanoi and Halong Bay very long?

No, it isn’t. The entire trip takes around 2.5 hours, from the doorstep of your hotel in Hanoi to our waiting lounge in the port of Halong Bay. For your comfort, we also use the new expressway between Hanoi and Hai Phong for the majority of the transfer service.

Is Orchid Cruise suitable for couples and families?

By all means yes! It’s a perfect choice for a relaxing holiday if you’re planning to come here as a couple or family.

Which bays do I get to visit with Orchid Cruise?

We’re proud to be the first company to organize cruises through the 3 bays: Ha Long, Bai Tu Long and Lan Ha. We’ll show you everything there is to see but we’ll focus on the most pristine, untouched areas out there.

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

No, you don’t. All cave entrance fees are included in the cruise price, so you don’t need to remember to take your change when you join us for one of our off-board excursions.

What kind of food do you serve on the ship?

Our menu is a blend of international and Vietnamese cuisines, but don’t worry – it’s all delicious! We do our best to serve only highest-quality food on Orchid Cruise.

Do we have to pay for meals on Orchid Cruise?

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?

Yes, we do. We strive to satisfy all special dietary needs our guest might have – vegetarian and vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free, food allergies or religious restrictions. Just kindly let us know in advance what your requirements are.

Can I request a vegetarian meal on Orchid Cruise?

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

Are drinks included in the price?

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

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.

What should I bring with me on board?

Definitely start with your passport! Please also remember to bring some sunblock, sunglasses and a hat, a swimming suit and some insect repellent. If you’re travelling in winter, then don’t forget to pack some warm clothes (you’ll find them very useful when you join our Tai Chi class at sunrise).

How many nights should I spend in Ha Long? Should I visit the bay for 3 days or two?

Any amount of time in Halong Bay is great, but we can definitely recommend booking a 2-night cruise. Your trip will feel less rushed and you’ll have more time to explore some of the more remote areas of the three bays, so do try and visit Halong Bay for 3 days.

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