The Bhaya Story
Halong Bay Cruise ship Bhaya was inspired by the majestic luxury of the ships used by Vietnam's Imperial Emperors. To ease themselves of the lofty worries of imperial reign and the constant plotting and counter-plotting of the imperial court, Vietnam's Emperors would seek the isolated safety and seclusion of their imperial vessels. Halong Bay has always been a favorite destination.

In the modern era, Halong Bay cruises have undergone a massive resurgence in popularity. Catering to the mass tourism market, none recreate the allure, enchantment, luxury or comfort of the Bhaya.

Bhaya Cruises on Halong Bay marry the splendor of the scenery with the significance of the location in Vietnamese history, the cultural importance of the imperial legacy and the sheer beauty of an acclaimed natural wonder in charm and luxury! A centuries old cruising tradition recreated in modern comfort and safety.
 

Accommodation:
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.
