About
More than 20 – year experience in organizing tours to Halong Bay but still in the crowd of tourists and 500 boats, we realize that we need to make something new for you with this destination. It is UniCharm Cruise! Instead of spending too much time on the old road to Quang Ninh province, you will shortly get to Hai Phong city and cross the strait to Cat Hai Island by a newly launched bridge. We will introduce you an unique area of Halong Bay from its back where you rarely see any tourist boat. We especially customize this route for you to explore the hidden area of Cat Ba Island and Lan Ha Bay – the additional parts of the Wonder of Halong Bay and the World Biosphere reserved area. By this tour itinerary, we believe that we will satisfy customers who dislike crowded tourist attractions and those who have passion for discovering.

The cruise was excellent, I cannot rate it higher otherwise I would, we did the 3 day, 2 night option in a standard cabin and the Unicharm boat and Hieu as our guide made for a great part of our holiday.

Vega travel provided a Vega branded bus from Hanoi to Halong port and then a tender to the Unicharm ship, Hieu with us from the start, providing great commentary and wit, don’t ask him for the chicken jokes 😀. The staff on the ship provided us with excellent food, great choice, well cooked and delicious,. The service for food and drink was excellent and could not be faulted.

The activities were well thought out, executed well and we felt safe and enjoyed all of them greatly, Hieu added to these with the history and facts of the areas we visited.

The accommodation was great, comfortable bed, great bathroom with hot shower, aircon and waking up to an incredible view each day was so good.

I wished we could have stayed longer, that is how good it was, thank you Hieu and Vega travel.

We had a lovely 2 nights 3 days cruise with Unicharm to Cat Ba island that included kayaking, swimming, hiking, cave visit, bike ride to a village etc. We had taken the room with a private patio on the 3rd floor and loved it. The rooms were quite spacious and so was the bathroom considering this is on a boat. The shower pressure was also good. We loved the food and the cocktails served on the boat and my favourite was the Mango Mohito.

Hieu was our assigned guide and he was the best. He gave us a lot of information on the places we visited and made the trips fun and interesting. I had problems with riding a bike and Hieu arranged for someone who took me to the village and back on a mobike at no extra cost. Highly recommend Unicharm and Vega travels.

We had an amazing experience on this cruise in May 2022. We booked the 2 night option through Vega Travel which I would recommend as you get to see some of the more remote parts of Ha Long Bay. The food, rooms and activities were brilliant but it was the staff that really made the experience. Everyone was really friendly and attentive especially our guide, Chris.

Amazing Cruise full of activities (hiking, cycling, kayac…). Everybody Is so nice, the boat Is amazing, as well as the rooms. Ha Long Bay Is such a magical place (so sad that some points are full of trash from uncivic tourists). Our guide Hueu (i dont know how to spell it) is the best, he explains everything so good and he helped us with everything, my boyfriend is allergic to seafood and Hueu made sure that he had food with no seafood to eat.

Booked the 3D2N through Vega Travel. The boat and activities exceeded our expectations. Our room was spacious and very clean (lovely shower) with a great view. It was lovely sitting on the deck at sunrise, as the boat was not overcrowded and so we had lots of space to ourselves to relax.
The activities were incredible (hiking on Cat Ba the highlight) and were all done at a time to avoid the crowds.
All the staff were lovely, but especially our guide Hieu, who was exceptionally friendly and always there to answer questions.

We wish there was more variation in the food served at dinner, as we had the same thing both nights. Other than that, it was all good.

We booked this tour through Vega Travel. We had the option of a 2 day 1 night or 3 day 2 night tour. We opted for the 2 Nights and could have stayed more! We liked the mix of activities (cycling, kayaking, hiking) and relaxation. Our room was clean and very comfortable. The bays are very protected and calm, even when the seas are rough outside the bay. Our guide Quang and the crew were pretty flexible with the itinerary, depending on weather and what the group wanted to do. Even though it rained and fair bit, it was still beautiful and warm. Our favourite activity was jumping off the boat for a swim in peaceful Lan Ha Bay. A bit of a warning, the hike to the peak on Cat Ba island is short but strenuous - especially in hot, humid weather. I'm moderately fit and enjoyed it, some of our group chose not to do it. I highly recommend the Unicharm cruise!

Really nice cruise, the crew were excellent and helpful. There was a minor issue when boarding that delayed a bit the start of the cruise, but our guide was always helpful and keep us informed on what’s going on. We went on a 3 days 2 nights cruise, and one thing that could be improved was the dinner that was the same menu in both nights. But it was my wife’s birth day on the second night and they prepared a really nice cake, and all the crew came to sing happy birthday to her!

We booked Unicharm because they had the best itinerary for activities. We were blown away by how much they exceeded our expectations! The travel guide Hieu took us from Hanoi and joined us throughout the cruise. His English was the best we have heard in Vietnam! It was a great combination of down time to relax and enjoy the amazing views while also going kayaking, swimming, cycling and dangling our feet in the river for the fish to nibble on in Cat Ba Island. We even had the opportunity to visit a local fisherman's house and see it in action. They had delicious vegan options on board and were quite knowledgeable about it.

A fantastic relaxing holiday in Unicharm cruises booked through Vega Travel. Highly recommend. We were given to the flexibility to participate in activities or relax. Tour guide Quang was fun, knowledgeable and flexible. He took great care of us!
