I've been to several cruises in Halong Bay but this one is totally different in an amazing way. The unique style of the cruise, marvellous scenery and friendly staff made my trip unforgettable. Enjoying sunlight on the deck with a bottle of beer, kayaking or swimming in the afternoon and lying on the sofa, feeling the summer breeze, etc. You really don't want to go back to daily life once you experience those moments. I will definitely be back to the cruise for a longer trip.”TripAdvisor
My husband and I went on an overnight excursion on the Emeraude on March 19th, 2014. Not only did we love Halong Bay but we were also extremely pleased with everything about the Emeraude. We were upgraded to the Captain's Cabin which was spacious and very comfortable. While we were cruising, we visited a pearl farm, some amazing caves, and a floating market. The food was good and there were lots of choices… Overall it was an excellent experience and I highly recommend seeing Halong Bay on the Emeraude.”TripAdvisor
This is a beautiful ship built in the style of the 1900s. Cabins are well equipped. The restaurant is buffet style with a good choice of Vietnamese and European dishes. The itinerary and shore trip is excellent and on board there are activities to keep you amused (you must try squid fishing).”TripAdvisor
