About us and cruise
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 12. 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.

The sundeck
The sundeck situated on the top deck that is the perfect spot to view the lime scale peaks, lagoons, grottos and emerald sea. Relax on our cosy sun lounges and enjoy the cool sea breeze.
Uniquely – we also turn part of the sundeck into an our door restaurant where you can dine under the stars and which means the carina gives you the choice of indoor and outdoor dining.

The restaurant and Bar
Our indoor restaurant seats up to 20. Relax and unwind. Enjoy pre-dinner or after-dinner drink, relax, browse our selection of books and magazines or watch DVD on the plasma TV. The bar is fully stocked with fine wines, spirits, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
Dine on traditional Vietnamese cuisine and have a drink while the sun sets over Halong bay.

Booking with Luan was the best choice we made. We decided everything at the last minute and he went above and beyond to help us! The communication with him was fantastic, the boat was clean and the check in was on time. We had so much fun thanks to the accurate cruise programme and to the cruise staff who were the most helpful and the sweetest. I would recommend this cruise to my friends and book with Luan! Thanks for everything

Unfortunately we did not gain much time to interact with Luan as he was not on the trip with us but in the morning we arrived earlier that planned and he invited us for a great breakfast with him am his family. The trip itself was fantastic. I only wished that we had done it in summer to take full advantage of the island paradise.

=== WELCOME TO HANOI OLD QUARTER HOMESTAY ===
Dear all,
My name is Luan, I have worked for 10 years as local guide, and I travelled in many places especially in Vietnam. My biggest dream is to travel all over the world and be able to share my great knowledge about Vietnam. With my family, we decided to support each other and open Hanoi Old Quarter Homestay.
My main objectives was to include what the travellers want the most which is experiencing the authentic Vietnamese life and exploring local activities. Today, I consider that the authentic Vietnamese life has become quite rare. Whenever or wherever you travel you all want discover new customs and learn more about a culture. So this inspired me to the host and share my home with the travellers from all over the world.

=== MY FAMILY ===
Hanoi Old Quarter Homestay opened as the interfering cultural place to connect friends with new friends. The homestay couldn’t be more authentic without my family, all raised and born in Hanoi. As a longstanding Vietnamese tradition, my family includes three generations:
Me and my wife Nguyen Nhu Quynh (Name of the flower which only hatch in midnight of the lunar new year) – She works as the official staff. She also can speak Chinese because she lived in Shanghai for 3 years. We have a 20 month-old son together, his name is Do Truong An (Peaceful forever).
Nguyen Do Khai – My younger brother – a high school student.
Nguyen Viet Thuy – My father – He is a retired cook. He can help you with the Traditional Vietnamese Food with an authentic taste. If you want to learn how to cook some tasty Vietnamese dishes or enjoy a family dinner, feel free to inform me in advance then we can prepare the dinner for you.
Finally, my mother Do Ngoc Lan also the Housekeeping Executive – She has been working in three star and four star hotel for 15 years. So you can feel the cleanness, comfort and relaxation at my home.

=== ACCOMODATION ==
My home is located in the Old quarter, the heart of Hanoi, surrounded by good restaurants and shops, in green, quiet streets within walking distance of Hoan Kiem Lake which is the perfect environment to enjoy your holidays.
The cosy rooms are lovely decorated with air-conditioning. Some of the rooms have a balcony with a nice view of the Old Quarter streets. The others rooms are located in the back of the building, which guarantees you a relaxing and quiet night.

=== EXTRAS ===
- Pick up service from and to the airport
- Renting or buying motorbike
- Laundry
- Family dinner
- Local Tour Arrangements

I have been working in tourism industry for 10 years. Traveling all around my country from the north to the south, experiencing all the local culture and authentic places of Vietnam.
Each year, I help more than 1000 guests who became my friends later to experience d the authentic places and real landscapes of Vietnam.
I always offer the best rates guaranteed. I have not had the working office or company. So I do not have to pay the government tax or operating fee. Moreover, I have the good relationship with all the hotel owners or tour suppliers. That is why I can offer not only the best local knowledge but the best rates also.
In order to make our own brand, I have created Local Tours Vietnam.
Our mission statement: “Stay as locals, Play as locals”.

With our traveling passion, we really hope to bring Vietnam to the world.
"I love Vietnam and proud of its amazing nature, a deep orient culture blended with local traditional customs and its unforgettable history. Showing them to you, my travelers, is my passion. Your satisfaction about the trip is my happiness. You will come back to visit a place when you like a place so much. Thus making you falling in love with my country is my mission. I will customize your trip upon your special requests to help you with just a limited time, but so much to enjoy"

We offer the personalized tours, tailored to suit your own itineraries, times, etc. They can be for just one person; a couple, a small family group or a group of friends. Prices may be adjusted depending on the number taking part in the tour.
