Halong Bay Cruise ship Bhaya was inspired by the majestic luxury of the ships used by Vietnam’s Imperial Emporers. To ease themselves of the lofty worries of imperial reign and the constant plotting and counter-plotting of the imperial court, Vietnam’s Emporers would seek the isolated safety and seclusion of their imperial vessels. Halong Bay has always been a favorite destination.
Launched in July 2007, the first Bhaya cruise ship features twenty luxurious cabins furnished in classical style. The ship can accommodate up to 40 passengers for either 1day/2nights cruise or 3days/2nights cruise in Halong Bay. In November 2008 & 2009, launched Bhaya Classic 2 & 3. Together, the three ships offer 60 luxurious cabins and suites and an exciting array of activities and facilities for you to enjoy as you discover the scenic delights of Halong Bay.
All our Deluxe cabins and Suites are well appointed, with traditional Vietnamese hardwood creating a luxuriant warmth. Light materials and large windows ensure that each cabin is bright and airy. Hand-crafted hardwood furniture, gold and white fittings, and delicate upholstery further enhance the warmth and light in each cabin.
Our two sumptuous Royal Suites (16.5m2) are located in the forward section of the upper deck, offering panoramic 180° ocean views. Each Royal Suite offers all the standard amenities of a Bhaya Suite, plus a larger en-suite bathroom with bath-tub, a plush sofa and exclusive access to a private viewing area on the upper deck.
