Wow we have just disembarked off the Emperor Cruise after the most wonderful 24 hours. What a beautiful boat! The food was absolutely exceptional! The most delicious flavours and beautifully presented. A really charming and comfortable cabin with glorious views in which to sleep and relax in when there was free time. Extremely well organised tours and activities, included a fun spring roll cookery class and an extremely interesting visit to a pearl farm. I also learnt some Vovinam moves on the sun deck!
Lastly to Dat and the rest of the brilliant team that looked after us, thank you so much we loved every minute!

Experience the Best Family Cruise in Halong during the Hot Summer in North Vietnam

Step into a 1930s-inspired journey aboard the boat, steeped in history, design, and heritage. Treated like royalty, we enjoyed moments of music, fine arts, architecture, culture, exquisite cuisine, and outdoor activities—all included.

Our first family trip post-COVID-19 took us to Phu Quoc Island City for 3 days and 2 nights, including a memorable cruise to Halong and Bai Tu Long Bays.

We chartered the entire 10-cabin cruise for a relaxing, immersive experience in the natural heritage. Bai Tu Long and Halong were chosen for their culinary delights, lush forests, pristine seas, rich culture, and enchanting sunsets.

Every moment, whether on board, on water, or underwater, was pure enjoyment. Creating timeless memories with Emperor Cruises Legacy Halong made it the highlight of our Halong Bay and Bai Tu Long Bay adventure.

Ha Long Bay is heavy with tourists, so there is no getting away with a unique exeperince. We booked Emperor cruises as it was a small, intimate and luxurious boat. Unfortunately the experience was not above average. The staff spoke poor english so misundertandings occured a great deal. The food was at best average. The decor was oppulent and tacky rather than refined, and the excursion such that they were were more tourist traps eg. A trip to go canoeing, was hijakced as a way to sell man made pearls. The scenery is stunning, the natural beauty wonderful, but the trip around it poor.

We contemplated a lot before choosing this cruise as there are so many cruises in Ha Long Bay.

We are glad we chose this cruise. The staff were very sweet and accommodating our requests. We are vegetarians, our menu was tasty and lots of varieties. Our only 1 complaint for the food: the Uramaki tasted bad. An authentic one will not taste like this at all.

The rooms were spacious, clean and well designed.
I am glad this cruise is not that kid friendly, so for couples this cruise will be an excellent choice.

Things to improve: 1) keep hair conditioner. 2) make sure we get get proper hot water 3) the jacuzzi did not function well.

Thank You for our lovely stay.

This luxurious and elegant cruise ship is not your average fishing trip. With opportunities for fishing and squid-catching, you can live out your wildest fisherman fantasies surrounded by the breathtaking beauty of Halong Bay.But don't worry, there's plenty of time for relaxation and pampering too. Take in the stunning sunset and sunrise views from the deck, and indulge in a soothing massage on the sundeck. Talk about a reel-y perfect vacation!The itinerary also included a visit to Viet Hai Village on day 2. This peaceful fishing village was a wonderful insight into the local way of life. We had the opportunity to interact with the villagers and see their traditional homes, adding a cultural element to the trip.On day 3, we visited the Cave of Maze, a hidden gem in Halong Bay. Our tour guide led us through the winding cave system, sharing legends and stories about its formation. It was a unique and exciting adventure that I would have never experienced without Emperor Cruises.With the 3 Days 2 Nights Hideaway tour, everything is taken care of for you. From gourmet meals to guided fishing trips, this all-inclusive package ensures you'll have the time of your life without lifting a finger (except maybe to reel in your big catch).
