With my first step from the tender boat to the receiving deck of The Emeraude, I felt transported back into French Indochina, when the cruising vessel was a destination in itself. Heavy wooden decks and panelling, together with numerous black-and-white frames depicting Ha Long Bay decades ago, reinforced this impression. My wife and I were billeted in the Paul Roque Suite and we found a well-appointed room, with chilled champagne and fresh fruits to boot. Pleasantly surprising was the "Pillow Menu", where we had the choice of the pillow-stuffing we preferred. My favorite places of The Emeraude are the Sundeck and the Dining Room. The Sundeck with a coffee and drink bar in the center provided excellent vistas of Ha Long Bay. The Dining Room further convinced me that indeed I had moved back in time, with its period interior and colonial feel and atmosphere. The food was top-notch and sitting at The Captain's Table with my travel companions put the final touches on the experience. But I will save my best accolades for the crew of The Emeraude. From the moment I hopped aboard to the time I disembarked, the guest service rendered was impeccable. The warmth of their reception and their smiles while they attended to my every need during the cruise left a lasting impression and will always be my image of Vietnam."TripAdvisor
The Emeraude is the only way to enjoy Ha Long Bay! Prior to arriving at Ha Long, I already knew that I was in for a treat because of the natural beauty of the attraction. Little did I know that what awaited me was an experience of a lifetime. Although we only stayed for less than 24 hours on the Emeraude, the staff and crew made sure that it would be a memorable one. From the check-in to the transfer to the Emeraude, the rooms, the meals, everything was done with deliberate care with customer satisfaction in mind. Overall, the natural wonder that is Ha Long Bay and the experience on the Emeraude will leave a good lasting impression on me."TripAdvisor
Emeraude 1 night cruise of Halong Bay. The ship itself is beautiful. Newly renovated bathrooms which are stunning. The rooms come with every amenity, you can even choose between buckwheat, herbal or just their regular pillows. Kudos to the renovators of the ship as this is a 5star job retaining the ship character which providing every comfort and aesthetic for the customer. The itinerary is great, we loved the caves and learning how pearls are made at the Pearl Farm. Kayaking, swimming and squid fishing--there is something for everyone. Thank you for a wonderful excursion, we really enjoyed it."TripAdvisor
