1. Choose the right cruise

It’s important to consider how big is the boat, how many cabins it has and how many passengers it accommodates. If you want to spend your trip with worldwide tourists, go for a medium to large boat. On a bigger boat, there are more new people to make friends and more public spaces to move to, especially if you want some alone-time.


If you’re on a honeymoon or travelling with your family or friends, consider chartering your own small boat. Yet, one thing to take note: smaller boats may get you seasick more easily.

Normally, there will be around 3 - 5 different categories on a Lan Ha Bay cruise. Let's review the different types of cruise accommodations to help you pick the best cabin on a ship according to your needs and style. Whichever cruise company you choose, make sure to check the number of cabins before you book. A boat of more than 20 cabins is considered big, so get well-prepared with crowds!

2. Pick the right cabin

One of the most difficult is how to choose the best cabin type and cabin location for your budget and lifestyle interests. Cabin choices are typically simple: interior (no view), exterior (ocean view with a window or porthole), balcony ( exterior room with a private balcony ) and suite (a larger cabin often with separate living and sleeping areas and a private balcony). In fact, there are a lot of options varying from wooden private boat around 4-10 cabins to wooden boutique cruise over 12 cabins if you’re looking for an old and classic vibe and big metal boat with contemporary and spacious design.
