Emeraude Classic Cruise

Emeraude Classic Cruises offers guests a value-packed, premium experience in Halong Bay starting with the ship itself. Limited to just 80 passengers, the ship is modeled after a turn-of-the-century paddle steamer and evokes a time when travel was synonymous with style and leisure. From our vintage décor paired with state-of-the-art navigational and safety systems to our freshly-made crêpes on the Sundeck and elegant seafood BBQs – everything about the Emeraude is designed to make your Halong Bay cruise the safest, most stylish and memorable cruise experience possible. The Emeraude was famously the setting for an episode of "Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown" where the acclaimed host noted the ship had "all the modern conveniences, all the charms of the past".

Me and my partner booked to do the overnight cruise and we was not disappointed, we stayed in the Captains Suite on the top deck and found the room to be very clean with plenty of space for 2 people. The cruise itself was very comfortable & on the upper decks there are plenty of wicker loungers, chairs and tables to sit & enjoy the views whilst having a drink. The food on board was excellent (breakfast / brunch / dinner) although slightly less traditional Vietnamese as is to be expected as the cruise has to cater to a multitude of tourists and as such does have some more generic options but as a whole the food can not be faulted. Drinks are slightly more expensive than what you would pay in the streets or at a bar as is to be expected on a cruise or tourists attraction, we had 8 drinks in total (3 soft drinks, 2 beers and a coffee) totalling circa 400,000 VND, obviously if you drink alcohol you’re going to pay a bit more, the cruise itself was very pleasant and the views of the bay are exceptional, the activities including the surprise cave visit which is a large cove with a lot of interesting rock formations and views and the 400 step climb to the top of TiTop island are all very enjoyable especially for those who enjoy taking photographs, overall we was very pleased with our cruise and would recommend it and the boat to others.

After spending three days and two nights aboard this blissfully nostalgic and ship floating through Halong Bay, and surveying the other ships afloat I cannot imagine why anyone would choose something other than the Emeraude. I didn’t choose Emeraude because Anthony Bourdain and Senator John McCain did, but probably did for similar reasons. The boat’s wooden decks and walls gleam; you can walk all around the boat on several decks and enjoy drinks in the covered outdoor bar. The staff, headed by Anne, is fantastical service oriented. The cabins are blissfully air conditioned after a long day of hiking, exploring and swimming in secluded beaches. Halong Bay is a natural wonder and Emeraude has the exploration down to a science. We swam in crystal-clear waters off secluded beaches and kayaked into hidden caves and beaches. The chefs on board do a wonderful job and their food is excellent, especially the grilled and seasoned oysters. DO NOT make the mistake of doing the 2-day one night package unless you are severely limited on time. The 3/2 nights is a completely different experience not to be missed. The additional time provides a more intimate engagement with this special place. AND do not scrimp, do the 25-minute flyover in a seaplane. Wow! From the boat you have one beautiful perspective, but from above you truly can grasp the scope of this natural treasure. Just had no idea if the expanse until we viewed the wonderland from above. The Emeraude crew misses nothing a made this so special that it was the perfect moment to propose to the love of my life...the perfect woman in the perfect place- truly an Eden in the modern world. I cannot recommend Emeraude Cruises more highly.

I and my family had an wonderful trip on this luxury sea cruise. We were arranged on Suite cabin called Paul Roque the best one on the cruise and my children arranged the next cabin 222. The room are supper clean, tidy, well maintained, everything of a luxury hotel is in this cabin. The food was great, especially dinner buffet was delicious with a lot of quality food. The valued asset of this sea cruise is the team, from manager to staff is very friendly, attentive, well trained. Thank you very much for all the team to make our trip to be a memorable Recommend definitely.

Excellent cruise, great cabins and Halong Bay. Add helpful and friendly crew and you can't do any better. Overnight cruise slowly passing through the waters of this iconic bay, something I would happily do again with this company.
