    What to Expect

    Day 1: Hanoi – Lan Ha Bay – Tra Bau – Overnight Area (L/D)

    Stop At: Lan Ha Bay, Cat Ba Vietnam
    Await the collection of the guide and driver in your hotel lobby. Once they have arrived, we will begin our transfer to Hai Phong city.
    Rest at the harbour as the V’Spirit Premier Cruise completes its final preparations. We can board shortly after this and enjoy our welcome drink.
    Sit down in the dining room for a delicious lunch and a scrolling view of the wonderfully unique limestone towers outside the windows.
    Our first stop of the tour will be to the Tra Bau area, where we can take our kayaks onto the water and enjoy a thoroughly peaceful experience. Swimming is also available here.
    17:00 We return to the V’Spirit Premier Cruise to catch the daily spectacle of a gorgeous sunset, as well as happy hour at the bar. Enjoy the cooking class put on by our talented chef as they give you an insight into Vietnamese cuisine.
    Along with a fantastic dinner, we have a very special performance of traditional Vietnamese music in the dining room or on the top deck. Before you retire to your cabin tonight, perhaps you would like to head to the bar, the spa or join the crew for some squid fishing.
    Duration: 12 hours

    Meals included:
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Overnight in a Deluxe Suite Balcony Cabin of V'Spirit Premier Cruise

    Day 2: Lan Ha Bay – Dark & Bright Caves – Hanoi (B/L)

    Stop At: Lan Ha Bay, Cat Ba Vietnam
    Don’t miss the tai chi session on the top deck, run by our onboard tai chi teacher as the sunrise greets us from behind the mountains.
    In the dining room after this, there will be a light breakfast lain out before we begin our final day in the bay.
    On sampan boats, some residents of the bay will show us their home by taking us to the Dark & Bright caves, two gorgeous caverns with a vast and enclosed lake on the other side.
    We return to the ship and sit down for our final meal, a lovely brunch buffet, on our approach to the harbour.
    Stepping off the V’Spirit Premier Cruise at the harbour, we board the bus and head back to Hanoi.
    Duration: 12 hours

    Hello! I’m not sure. I guess you could ask at the time of booking. I can’t remember if there is a “special request “ option at booking. It’s really a wonderful little cruise & beautiful!
