My husband, children (aged 5 and 9) and I all went on the 2 day (1 night) trip into Halong Bay on the Dragon Pearl Junk. Whilst I think such young children may not be an every day occurrence on the ship we were well looked after and the kids could do everything and get involved in the complete experience. The weather was unfortunately a little gloomy as a typhoon was expected in the next few days, but it didn't dampen the experience which was really fantastic. The scenery was just beautiful and the boat was great, with a wonderful range of food. We were all very well looked after. There were only 2 down sides, our children were a bit fussy and it did meant they didn't eat much on the cruise as the food whilst very good was completely Vietnamese (which of course is what you would expect), but we didn't have any other options to chose from to give them. The other minor issue was that I find some very small lice crawling in my sons bed and sheets. We don't know where they came from but when alerted the crew did change them very quickly. However it did not put us the wonderful experience and we did wish we were doing the 2 night tour in the end.
