First things first: always keep an eye on them. Anytime. Anywhere. Especially onboard a Halong Bay cruise.
Take some milk for small babies, as well as snacks and appropriate clothes for the weather (Vietnam has complicated seasons, so check before you arrive). Medicine would be a plus, even though all Vietnam cruises are equipped with the most important and useful medications.
Choose Halong cruises (as all Bhaya Cruises fleet) that depart from Tuan Chau port. Most of the accidents reported actually occur in tender boats, during transfer to the main boats. In Tuan Chau, you walk directly to your boat.
Whichever Halong Bay accommodation you choose, book a cabin without a private balcony, but ask for a big sundeck, so that your kids will have plenty of space to play.
Cruise Halong Bay for more than 1-day. It will be an incredible adventure, especially if you select a journey stopping at Cat Ba Island, where your children can spend time exploring, running and biking,whilst always being under the supervision of a crew member.
For a quiet night, select a cruise anchoring in Bai Tu Long Bay, to avoid the loud party boats of Halong.
