The reasons why we should book Halong Cruise in advance instead of on arrival

Halong Bay is a famous destination listed in one of the MUST- Visit places in Asia. So this attractive destination always receives the attention of many travelers. Travel planning definitely a necessary thing to do if you want to have a perfect and memorable trip. You always wonder whether you should book a cruise online in advance to avoid the situation that all good cruises are fully booked or is it better to wait until arrival date to get better last minute deal and know the weather situation. The answer is YES – You should book Halong cruise in advance and let's find out the reasons why:


1. Multiple suitable options

There will be plenty of cruise and room options when you book a cruise in advance and you can easily find out the best ship for the trip. You will be able to choose the suitable itinerary such as visiting Halong Bay, Lan Ha Bay, Bai Tu Long Bay and the cruises are priced from mid-range to high-end luxury. Those are things you cannot get when you book at last minute.



When booking online, you will have a lot of time to find out what types of cruises will be suitable or not suitable for your group / family. For example, couples will not be suitable for families cruise with many children. One advantage of early booking is that you can have rooms as request such as connecting rooms for families, rooms far from the engine room, rooms at the front of the ship, ... are available for you to choose.
Obviously, the good quality cruise and reputation usually be booked in advance on high season so early booking  will help you easily select the cruise with good service without anxiety when you pick a random cruise at last minute. Especially when you are traveling with family and small children, it is really necessary to book cruise in advance and plan for the trip.

2. Better prices

Booking online brings you a chance to get special date with cheaper deal as normal. You also have more time to clear about promotions or wait until a golden day discount from your chosen cruise.



There are many cruises company encourage booking in advance by having a good deal for early bird booking booked 30 -60 days before departure date. So do not forget to ask the travel agent about this offer and promotion, you will save a decent amount

3. Easy to evaluate cruise quality based on feedbacks and reviews

When you book a cruise online it means that you have a lot of time to study the site you are booking. You can easily see the price listings, information, itinerary and what’s included or not included on the website.



Different when you book a tour on arrival, you only have tightly time to look or find a cruise. When you book tour online in advance , that mean you will have time to study about cruise quality service though the feedbacks and reviews of customer who has experienced cruise before from which to make the best decision for your family/group.  Such as whether cruise has evening party for active people, does the cruise look like advertised or does the cruise have children playground… etc.

4. Effortless price comparison

You can search a cruise on google easily and compare prices from agents then choose the webpage with the best prices and offers. This is not allowed when you book directly at the last minute.



Tips to compare price: when you see a webpage with cruise rate much lower than others you are looking at, you should check the price listings, condition about departure date, number of person in a cabin, and what’s included or not with promotions.  

One thing to notice is that you should check the reputation of the website you are looking at. A reputable webpage and agent makes sure you get good prices as well as avoid the risk of extra charge after boarding. Also, a small tip is that you should check the terms included and not included in the price as well as the accompanying promotions before booking.

5. Flexible payment and deposit policy

When booking online, websites often allow you to have many payment options: Visa, master, bank transfer ... with options deposit to keep the room and remain pay on arrival or full payment.



A good Website also clearly describes the cancel and refund policies. You should check them before booking just in case you have to postpone your trip due to unexpected situation.

One thing I am sure you are quite disturbed and concern when book Halong Bay Cruises in advance is about the weather. You can NOT predict the weather few months before the trip and fear that in the case of bad weather the cruise will not operated as scheduled. But don’t worry, in all cases of cruises are canceled due to weather conditions, you can still get the money back or be supported to change to the other date.

Above are the benefits when you book Halong Bay cruise online in advance instead of book on arrival. Hope those things we have just shared will help you have a perfect and meaningful trip with your beloved one in the World Heritage Halong Bay.
