Carina Cruise Book now

Unlike most cruises in Ha Long Bay, Carina Cruise benefits from being one of the more intimate junks. With just 9 luxury en-suite cabins, and manned by a young and experienced crew of 10. We cater for small groups, couples and individuals. Our cosier atmosphere provides a more personalized service compared to most other cruises in Ha Long. But The Carina’s generous size means that you won’t feel cramped. We are large enough for you to keep yourself to yourself but small enough to feel that you are travelling with a group of friends.
And our size is our greatest advantage.  It gives us access to other parts of the Bay which are less populated and less touristy, helping you to feel you are not in a tourist trap constantly surrounded by loads of other junks.

Responsible travel
The Carina cruise supports sustainable and responsible tourism to ensure the Ha Long Bay environs remains cared for and not exploited. We want to contain any negative environmental impact of the cruise industry in Ha Long Bay as well as supporting conservation and protection initiatives and working working with the local community.
