My wife and I completed a wonderful two day, one nite excursion on the Emeraude Boat. The accommodations were very comfortable, excellent food, friendly and helpful staff trained to make the tour of Halong Bay enjoyable and memorable. Bring lots of film for your camera!

Spent one night on the Emmeraude and it was really lovely. Cabin was great with good facilities- shower was great although you need to remember to move the toilet roll as it will get wet - the room is a wet room! Meals on board were of great quality and plenty of it and the staff were friendly and welcoming. There were lots of activities on board and you could get involved or not - your choice. I liked that there were only 49 of us on board so there were lots of places to sit and take in the views. Definitely would recommend this lovely boat.

Dear Julie,

You were lucky that we were not very busy during that day and that you enjoyed your space on the Emeraude while cruising. Furthermore, that you found the program convenient and not obliging.

Thank you very much for you recommendation.

All the best!

The staff were really helpful and friendly, especially Anne who greeted us on board. The rooms were small basic and clean. The restaurant food was super and catered for all tastes. The on board entertainment was very good. The bar staff were always available and obliging. Activities provided included massage (extra payment) , kayaking, island cave visits, pearl farm, squid fishing and tai chi in the morning. On board organisation was slick and efficient. Trips ashore were via a couple of the Emeraude's tenders with mandatory life jacket provided. A great way to wind down after 10 days intensive touring.

Dear Chris,

We are glad that we were a part of your tour in Vietnam and even more glad that you had a great time on the boat. The program seemed convenient to you considering your 10 days intensive touring prior to coming to Halong Bay.

It was a pleasure having you during our cruise and always happy to welcome you on board.

Thank you very much and safe travels!

Just finished 2 days and one night on board the Emeraude Classic Cruise boat and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Food was great, the staff all very friendly and the views of course gorgeous. Only downside was that none of the loo's on board flushed properly and it was sad to see a lot of rubbish and pollution around the islands due to tourism. I would definitely recommend this cruise to anyone. The beds were comfy and the boat was clean.

Dear Yasmin,

First of all, we are glad that you enjoyed your cruise on the Emeraude and were satisfied with the service and food. We are very sorry that the flushing system has brought you some inconveniences, just to let you know this problem is the main upgrade in our upcoming drydock next week and we hope to have a better system when we come back to the bay after 1 month.

Thank you very much for your review and recommendation.

All the best!
