Chose to go with indochina junk's dragon's pearl on a 2d1n cruise to bai tu long bay after reading many positive reviews on TA and other sites. Bai tu long bay is like halong bay with all the beautiful rock formations, but more peaceful since most of the other cruise operators don't go there. we booked this trip through buffalo tours upon our arrival in hanoi for USD159, but other guests on the boat mentioned that their tours only cost $135 or something like that. It seems cheaper to book directly through their website.
Lunch and dinner on the first day was yummy with lots of seafood - mostly supplied by the fishing villages we visited on the second day. 2nd day's food was quite lacklustre in comparison. We visited a cave, kayaked and swam. got lucky with the weather.. on our return there was a storm and visitors could not sail out... there was no transport shuttling guests to the ferry terminal and as a result we waited ages before the van came to pick us up.
