Day 1: Hanoi - Hai Phong - Lan Ha bay

9h00 Optional bus will pick you up from hotel in Hanoi Old Quarter to take the highway to Got Port, Haiphong where we arrive at around 11h30
12h00 Transfer by tender to the MAYA CRUISE. On the way to the main boat, you will have a chance to see Cai Trap canal.
12h15 We welcome our guests onboard the MAYA CRUISE and then check in, enjoy Welcome Drink, receive cruise briefing, safety instructions and check in. Start cruising and explore Lan Ha Bay.
12h40 MAYA CRUISE proceeds to Da Chong islet, where you can see a lighthouse built by the French over 100 years ago. Have lunch while passing via the islets of Con Vit. These amazing limestone karst formations rise up out of the sea in an impressive manner. This area is untouched, as not many cruise ships use the route via the Cat Ba Island - Thoi Quyt area - Coc Ngoi islet - through Cua Van to Ba Trai Dao area
15h00 We progress to Ba Trai Dao beach area of Lan Ha Bay- a separate part of Halong Bay. This is a quiet tourist paradise in Vietnam. The region is known for its pristine beaches and spectacular beauty, having about 400 fascinating islands. Unlike the main, Halong Bay, the islands of Lan Ha Bay are forested, and most are small in stature.
You can try at kayaking or simply just enjoy a swim. This is a great experience, immersed in the crystal clear waters of the bay, in the Ba Trai Dao area.
17h30 Returning MAYA CRUISE, you can watch the magnificent sunset over the Gulf of Tonkin.
Onboard you may join a traditional cooking class. Our chef will instruct you in the making of some Vietnam dishes. In the early evening the boat has its Happy Hour deal
19h30 Dinner is served. Enjoy delicious local food prepared and served for you by our wonderful onboard catering staff. This is a delightful meal in an intimate romantic setting
21h30 Enjoy the landscape of the bay at night up on the top deck. Relax whilst enjoying drinks from the bar. Try your hand at night squid fishing, watching a movie in the restaurant.
Overnight on board.

Relaxing boat ride

Had Tommy guide us. He’s hilarious and we wanted more of his jokes. The cruise was great, very photogenic. The cruise had great food and great entertainment. The swim was great as was the rowing under the limestone rocks. Maya doesn’t go directly into halong bay as it’s too touristy but goes near it. I’d definitely recommend Maya cruise to anyone wanting to experience this natural featur

Absolutely perfect 2 day and 1 night cruise. Lots of benefits of going to Lan Ha- shorter transfer and much quieter. David our guide was excellent-lots of information and chat. Really nice man who we enjoyed talking to and learning with. Transfer is very comfortable luxurious bus with WiFi and huge chairs. Comfort stop about half way to boat. You sail to Lan Ha bay which is much quieter than Ha Long and also the bus transfer is much shorter. Small boat takes you on a very quick transfer to the main boat. Greeted with a lovely welcome and a small welcome drink. Check in to room and served a 5 course lunch! The food was immense! We had a great room with a small balcony and very comfortable bed and great windows at the back of the boat. We then went kayaking and swimming. Scenery beautiful. Happy Hour on boat offers cocktails and spirits at buy 2 get 1 free! Brief cooking course where you try to make spring rolls. 5 course dinner-amazing! Boat is anchored at night so it is quiet. Breakfast-fresh eggs, fruit, cereals, bread. Then we went on a basket boat to come caves. You then return for a 5 course “brunch”. Quick transfer back to port and then luxury bus back to Hanoi-returning at around 2pm. All of the staff on the cruise were so polite and friendly. We were visited at our hotel after the cruise by two members of staff from Maya asking about our trip-all I can say was it was perfect. They gave us the gift of some Vietnamese coffee and a small drip coffee maker. Unbelievable 5* service throughout.

Great experience with an amazing guide: SOI

We stayed for 2 days 1 night in Maya Cruise and only regret not booking for more days. Every detail of our experience exceeded expectations mainly because there were 5 guests for 10 crew members in the cruise. Besides this VIP treatment, the rooms were very good, the boat is very new and clean, the whole activities were well thought to provide an unforgettable time and the food never disappoints, with frequent meals making sure we never stayed 2 minutes hungry. So overall experience was and will always be very good. However, I leave the best for the end of my comment. There was an extra factor that upgraded our trip to the next level: SOI. A young Vietnamese tour guide whose name means ‘sticky rice’. Her simpathy, curiosity, knowledge, availability and generousity were crucial. I highly recommend asking for Soi’s availability if you choose Maya for your cruise. She is destined for this type of job and will make sure - giving all her best - that one is always happy. She wouldn’t need to do it though because her empathic smile (always on) would be enough. Thank you Soi for your amazing job. We hope life is as good for you as you are for others.

Excellent smaller cruise vessel

We really enjoyed staying on the boat for a one night cruise. The staff were very friendly especially our guide Tommy who spoke fluent English and was very switched on. The food was exquisite including a five course dinner and four course lunch, we did not expect the cuisine to be of such fine standard. We took part in the pre-breakfast Tai-Chi class and enjoyed the visit to local fishermens village to see their traditional way of life and do a little swimming and cannoing. Highly recommend this cruise.
