Halong Bay Private Cruises Tips will start with common questions that AZlocaltrip has got many times


I am going round and round reading about ships for a 3d/2n Halong cruise. This is for my our traveling party ( 4 adults, 2 children) — all active and like to be off the beaten path (if that’s possible in this very popular destination).

Is it possible to hire a small boat to ourselves? If so, can someone give me the contact details for boats which may be suitable?

Any direction would be appreciated, and if possible who you booked with.

Thank you!

The same questions go for couple on honeymoon and group of friends from a company or classmates”

As a person who has got an answer the similar questions for hundred times, I would love to say that everything can be possible, but depending on much your budget and your type of travel and we all not want to spend our money for a not worthy thing

I. How many kinds of Halong Bay Cruise Private? When should I book a private cruise?

1 Private Cabin Cruise

For couples who want to have a romantic holiday sometimes, a honeymoon celebration would be organized on the cruise, 2 people in a private cruise to a private area to have a “Private experience” ever!

2 Private Cabins Cruise

This private cruise in Halong Bay can accommodate up to 4 adults and 2 children under 12 years old in total. Private Cruise two cabin is highly recommended for a chartered cruise for family or small groups of friends.

Again, this conversation would help?


After much research and deliberation, my wife and I have narrowed down our 2d1N cruise options to either

  • Mon Cheri cruise (Lan Ha Bay)

  • L’Amour junk w Indochina Junk (Bai Tu Long Bay, private junk).

We are a bit stuck on which to choose, as they are both very different options.”

The pros of the Mon Cheri cruise are that it’s a newer boat with more luxury features, etc. Also, it takes the Lan Ha Bay route, which I hear is less touristy and crowded.

The L’Amour junk is a bit pricier, and the boat is older and less luxurious, but it is a completely private junk for just the 2 of us, so we do like the idea of having that kind of personal attention and privacy. It follows Bai Tu Long Bay route, which is still decent, but maybe not quite as good as Lan Ha (at least per what we’ve read).


Mon Cheti Cruise provides a very personal space

Private Cruise 3 or 4 cabins

It is a perfect choice for

  • a family leisure holiday or

  • a group of friends

on a discovery tour of the mystical beauty of Halong Bay and neighboring areas.

This cruise only allow max 8 people!! This is one of the not good points if you have more than 8 people.

Note for big groups of people

Some big group of friends or company trips will take the cruise of more than 20 cabins, this will depend on what kinds of group!

Let have an example of Auco Private Charter Cruise

III. Some reviews on Tripadvisor for Halong Bay Private Cruise

There are many companies that offer private cruises in Halong at many different price levels. If you love the off the beaten track itinerary, you can look for Prince Junk. It’s small and authentic boat line of Indochina Junk. But the cost for a private cruise is a little bit higher, just deal with them for the better price.

Although it was a few years ago We did the private tour with Indochina and it was brilliant. I also had a private car to/from Hanoi. Staffs were so attentive, completely understanding of my seafood allergies, arranged celebration cake and gifts. I have since done a group tour and was so disappointed because my first trip was so good.

For a special occasion, I would recommend private 🙂
