Owing to shortage of time, my family decided to take a 2-day / 1-night cruise with Bhaya 2 in Halong Bay and spend this New Year Eve on a boat! It turned out that we were joining the 2nd half of a 3-day cruise, but we blended in very well. The tour of the Sung Sot cave and the "Dark and Bright" lagoon were very enjoyable, as was the kayaking experience for my sons. The ambience onboard and tours were excellent for making new friends, and we did. The staff were extremely helpful if all aspects, and we were deeply touched when the cruise manager personally helped us connect with a taxi to get to the airport on time after the cruise ended. I have never before gone on overnight cruises, but after this very positive experience, I'm keen to try again. Highly recommended to take the 3-day cruise in Halong Bay as a family.
