I have booked the 2D1N trip (sleeping on cruise) for myself /wife.
I will not recommend this for anyone.
Among so many activities included in the programme (Tiptop climbing, swimming, kayaking, night squid fishing and surprising caves), We have been to the cave only! And for the resting of trip, we are just cruising.
When we reached the pier, we are told we are not allowed to stay overnight in cruise and offered to have stay a hotel stay @ CatBa island, due to strong wind... or returning back to hanoi and continue the trip next the following day. There are other 2 couples together with us (2d1n) decided to go ahead with the rest of group which are 3d2n trip.
Through the whole trip, we just visited caves + a hotel stay + to/fro cruise.
IMO, I think vega travel has accept over bookings thus cause lack of cruise rooms. Because it is really due to strong wind, the ecsort should be have informed us earlier during the 4 hours journey to pier.
When I feedback this issue to Vega Travel when back to hanoi, after the trip. The staff just brushed us off, stated the change of programme is not within the control of the office. I am disgusted by his reply and walked out at once, as I do not want to spolit the rest of my stay in Hanoi.
