Emeraude Classic Cruise

Destination: Hanoi - Halong Bay - Hanoi
Starting: Hanoi - Vietnam
Ending: Hanoi - Vietnam
Rates: $ 250 - $ 460
Be transported back to the old times, charm and luxury of Indochina's Emeraude Classic Cruises, with all the comforts and personal service you could possibly wish for. Sail the mysterious Halong Bay in a deluxe 55 meters vessel that has been designed in the tradition of Le Tonkin.

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 Onyx 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 replica steamer with 38 cabins meticulously designed to evoke the nostalgic charm of colonial Indochina.
