Emeraude Classic Cruise

One of the great natural wonders of the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Halong Bay covers an area of 1,500 km over which are scattered thousands of limestone islands and grottoes rising from the clear, emerald waters of the Gulf of Bac Bo. The majestic beauty of the bay and its islands is only fully appreciated while meandering among the islands, fjords and inlets. After a night on board the Emeraude, passengers awaken to see daylight filtering through the early morning mist and the towering rock formations, leaving them with a dream-like memory of their visit to Halong Bay.

The History: In 1910 a paddle steamer called the Emeraude was offering unforgettable cruises in Halong Bay for visitors to what was then French Indochina. The Emeraude was part of a flotilla owned by the Roque family who had left Bordeaux in 1858 in search of adventure and fortune. Over a period of more than 50 years they found both. After several ups and downs including successful trading and timber businesses, near bankruptcy and being taken hostage by pirates, the Roque brothers built Emeraude, Perle, Saphir, Rubis and Ony to ferry passengers and freight along the waterways of Indochina and cruise on magnificent Halong Bay.Today the Emeraude offers a regular cruise service on board a luxurious replicasteamer with 37 cabins meticulously designed to evoke the nostalgic charm of colonial Indochina.  

The Ship: Length 56 m- 3 decks– 34 Luxury cabins+ 1 Paul Roque Suite+ 1 Captain Suite+ 1 Suite Emeraude- 2 bars + 1 restaurant- beauty massage service- International service standards

The Rooms: Each bespoke cabin exudes warmth and character with high standards of workmanship, distinguished style and impeccable service. With its polished wooden floors and brass fixtures and fittings the Emeraude’s rooms offer timeless elegance. 

The Restaurant: The Emeraude’s restaurant offers delicious, freshly caught local seafood and other specialities.
While enjoying breathtaking views of the bay, passengers can enjoy the simple and honest flavours of traditional fare.

From the sun deck, passengers can enjoy a soothing foot massage while sipping a refreshing cocktail and gazing at the rock formations reflected in the crystal clear water of the bay. The Emeraude’s huge paddle wheel opens to reveal a swimming deck offering passengers the opportunity to swim in the calm waters of the bay surrounded by the majestic scenery.
At dawn, that most magical time as the sun rises, the soft and graceful movements of a Tai chi class on the deck complement the atmospheric silence of the bay.

Emeraude Café:Located in Bai Chay at the Royal Park Resort, the café connects to the Emeraude's private pier, providing, convenient transitional space for guests to embark on the luxury overnight cruise.
The cafe serves a selection of Western food, including freshly made sandwiches, panini and pizza. Along with an extensive variety of teas, coffees and fresh juices, the café has an excellent wine list, sourced from around the world.
A cozy interior and outdoor terrace provides room for up to 70 diners. The café also offers complimentary wireless access for guests and sells a variety of Emeraude souvenirs
