Halong Bay Cruise – Vietnam

We took a punt and booked online.  Unfortunately our first choice boat based on Tripadvisor was fully booked and we ended up on the 3-star Golden Lotus Classic cruise.  I think this is an overly generous rating – it was a 2-star at most IMO – and I’m not that fussy. Cost was $US220 including … Continue reading

Vietnam – travel cost summary

Back in February when I was arranging our holiday to Vietnam, I wrote of The cost of an organised tour vs Independent Travel.

Royal Caribbean – Hong Kong to Vietnam – Cruise Compass – day 3

Day 3 was in Nha Trang, we did an organised bus half day excursion.  Due to most passengers going ashore, there wasn’t much planned for on the ship for entertainment compared with the previous sea day.

Royal Caribbean – Hong Kong to Vietnam – Cruise Compass – day 2

Day 2 was a sea day so there were plenty of activities planned.  I’m pretty sure we spent most of the day on the balcony enjoying the downtime with the occassional meal break – hey, we were on a cruise!  😉   If you missed the Cruise Compasses for the Taiwan cruise, they are here … Continue reading

Royal Caribbean – Hong Kong to Vietnam – Cruise Compass – day 1

Once we got off our 5 day cruise to Taiwan, we immediately got back onboard for a 5 night cruise to Vietnam.  When I say “got back onboard” which isn’t technically correct, Mum never even got off the ship.  Back-to-back cruisers simply go to guest services for new keycards if changing staterooms. We vacated our … Continue reading
