Question: How to choose a right cabin on a junk boat on Halong Bay
Choosing a Halong Bay cruise cabin can be fun and challenging at the same time, and not just a little bit frustrating on occasion. Before booking your cabin on board, ask yourselves these questions:
Do you tend to get seasick?
Do you prefer to nest peaceably on your balcony rather than hangin' with the crowd around the bar area?
Conversely, is your idea of a stateroom simply a place to flop into bed at 1 a.m. -- no fancy notions necessary?
And do you, like me, tend to go just a little bit crazy if your bed faces aft when you know you're moving forward?
Despite the fact that some cruise lines present as many as 20 or more "categories" per ship, it's helpful to remember that there are essentially only four types of cabins on any cruise vessel:
Inside: no window, in an inside corridor
Outside: window or porthole with a view to the outside
Balcony: includes a verandah that allows you to step outside without going up to a public deck
Suite: a larger cabin, often with separate living and sleeping areas, and a wide variety of extra amenities and perks
Here are some examples for Halong Bay Cruise cabins:
The Au Co Cruise: there are 4 types of cabins, deluxe, grand deluxe, executive and suites.
The Paradise cruise: the are 3 types of cabins on board, including superior, deluxe and suite
The Bhaya Cruise: there are only 2 types of cabins on board: Deluxe and Suite
The Dragon Pearl Junk: there is even only one type of deluxe cabins
