We missed this port of call due to Super typhoon Saola. On this particular itinerary, we missed our first 3 ports of call, skirting around this storm. 😕 We were at sea for 8 consecutive days without setting foot on any land mass. There was a small passenger mutiny on board. The captain threatened to have all the mutineers put ashore at the next port of call (wherever that might be). It was an ugly affair and not handled very professionally by the captain or crew.

We did a private excursion for Da Nang including a trip to Hoi An. It was excellent. The guide was amazing and very informative - a terrific introduction to Vietnam, and much more economical than the HAL excursions
