Tips to choose best Halong Bay Cruise for kid and toddler

If you are planning a trip to Halong Bay for your family with a kid, these are some effective tips you shouldn’t miss out to choose the best kid-friendly Halong Bay Cruise.

Halong Bay Cruises with kids

1. Safety


If you travel with kids, this is the most important factor you need to concern about. Research your cruise options thoroughly, features of the cruise line, checking with them:  Are there life jackets in child sizes? Are they having kid-safe areas onboard? Are there railings and restraints to keep little wanderers from wandering overboard?
 
All cruise ships in Halong Bay which are suggested on HalongBayCruises.com are commanded by a captain and operate under professional daily technical supervision and ongoing maintenance schedules. Each ship undergoes regular an annual dry-docking (1 or 2 times a year) to ensure all aspects of seaworthiness and the good condition of accommodations.

Safety on Halong Bay Cruises

The crew on the ship is trained and strict adherence to safety regulations on board. The most important factor in keeping children safe onboard a cruise is staff. Knowledgeable staff who know what to do in an emergency, who are kind and watchful of children and who genuinely like to interact with kids make a cruise that much safer

Please kindly note that there is no babysitting service onboard, children need to be attended to and supervised by parents at all times. Children cannot be left alone with the staff. We do hope you will understand our position considering the practical and legal issues at hand. Should you wish to bring a babysitter with you onboard we will offer a special room rate for you. 

2. Itinerary and activities on cruise


When choosing an itinerary, consider the number of at-sea days, cruising through Lan Ha Bay or Bai Tu Long Bay are less touristic and your family can have more time to relax for the trip meanwhile, the cruises through main Halong Bay are suited for active-family or child loves activities

Know which activities will have when you stay on board make sure that there are enough age-appropriate activities to keep the kid engaged and interested. These activities also help them meet kids of a similar age which can be helpful for finding new friends to play with on the cruise.

With a 2-day itinerary of cruising, you may visit a cave and then do kayaking. And with the 3-day itinerary, you will have an option of cycling at Viet Hai village (Lan Ha Bay) and cruising further in the bay and visiting a floating village. If you travel with an infant or toddler, the cruise offers the option of a bamboo boat instead of kayaking and an electric car is an alternative option for cycling. 

You may consider between 2 days or 3 days onboard depending on your children and cruise activities. If this is your first trip with your children, choose cruises that have a slower pace than you might usually attempt. If you want to see more than one place, be realistic about what you can cover with little ones in tow as children need a rest. Researching each cruise line thoroughly about childcare options, meal options, family activities, room size, and layout will be helpful very much.

3. Accommodation


Comfortable is the top priority when you looking for a room. If the money is not your concern and you travel with a big group with family then charter a small cruise is a perfect choice. You don’t have to worry about your child will cry and disturb other guests on the cruise. 

The Family connecting cabin always is the best choice for a small family with kids. This is 2 cabins separate connected by the connecting door then you can stay up to 5 people in this cabin. This type of room not only offers spacious space for your family and you can take care of your kids easily but also have a private space between children and parents.

With lower budget, you can consider the option of adding an extra bed in the room however, make sure that will you have a comfortable place to sit for the duration of the trip when you put an extra bed in (you can check with the cruise company or your travel consultant in advance about the bed size as well as the room size to make decision for this option).

4. Entertainment onboard for kids

 
Are there any onboard activities for children or will you have to entertain them?

Sundeck always is the best place to play for kids.  With luxury cruises as Stellar of the Seas Cruise, President Cruise or Era Cruise, kids can have more playing space as these cruises feature children playing-ground, outdoor pool, cinema... Kindly consider these luxury cruises.
