Before Reserving

Q: What will the weather be like during my cruise?


Please click on the following link for the average weather report in the area before your trip

You can also have a look at a local Vietnamese forecast on Click on English/ Select Northeastern/ Select Quang Ninh. 

Q: What’s the best time to visit the Gulf of Tonkin?


A: The best time of year to visit Halong Bay, Cat Ba Island, Lan Ha Bay, and Bai Tu Long Bay is during spring or autumn. As the bay is situated in the northern part of Vietnam, it can get quite cold in late autumn and winter. You should be aware that the cruise may encounter sporadic cancellations between July and September due to storms. However, generally speaking, you can enjoy The Au Co cruise all year round.

Q: Can I go on The Au Co cruise if I am pregnant?


A:  You are very welcome as long as you haven’t entered the 37th week of your pregnancy by the beginning of the cruise. Please advise us how far along (in weeks) your pregnancy is and confirm that you are in good health and are not experiencing a high-risk pregnancy. Also, please inform us of the status of your pregnancy so that we can take good care of you. The Au Co strongly recommends you review your health insurance coverage before your cruise.

Q: Do we need to book an extra room if we have children?


A: The maximum number of adults in one cabin is two. However, The Au Co can accommodate infants with travel cots sharing their parents cabin or provide an extra mattress for children under 12 years old. Travel cots and extra mattresses are available. As soon as you have made your reservation, please make a note directly in the booking in order to check the availability and reserve a cot or extra mattress.

Q: What is your policy for children?


A: Children are very welcome aboard The Au Co. Occupancy of a room is limited to two adults and one child. The Au Co may however allow children to stay in the room with their parents, either with or without an extra bed. Our policy is not to charge for children under 5 years of age. One extra child, aged between 6 and 11, staying with his/her parents with the existing bed arrangement is charged at US$ 100/ child/ night. Two children below 12 staying in a separate cabin will be charged at 75% of the adult price. Children older than 12 years of age will be charged the same as adults.
