It offers five luxurious cabins, which are equipped with high quality facilities and amenities. All cabins were designed with large windows in order to provide the best panoramic view of Halong Bay. Let’s cruise with Halong Valentine to experience the most outstanding feature, enjoy the luxury that you deserve and explore hidden beauty of Halong Bay and surrounding areas
