Owner description: Launching its first cruise back in the summer of 2007, Bhaya Classic Cruises is a member of what is now Halong Bay's largest fleet of cruise boats & ships. The 4 Bhaya Classic boats are constructed in a classic, oriental style, while incorporating modern facilities catering to every aspect of passenger comfort. Each Bhaya Classic boat has between 15 and 20 cabins, the relatively small design creating informal, warm spaces promoting a convivial feel on board. Beginning operations in April 2015, the Bhaya Classic Premium Line features smaller boats that deliver a boutique experience emphasizing privacy, while maintaining the classic oriental design found on all Bhaya boats. Large passenger cabins accommodate up to three adults in full comfort, with just 3 to 7 cabins on each boat. Bhaya Classic Premium Line boats provide a uniquely personal space to appreciate the magnificent scenery of Halong Bay.

We did the 2 days 1 night cruise with Bhaya. From start to finish everything has been wonderful.

The boat itself was very nice. We were very impressed with the bedroom and how nice it was with ensuite bathroom. The food on the boat was great - we were fed constantly and would not have had chance to go hungry! The evening meal in particular was excellent! 5 courses, each of which was very tasty and was excellent quality - oysters, king prawns, steak, salad. All delicious!

The excursions and extras were also great. We enjoyed the fishing village and the cave. We also participated in the squid fishing and both nearly caught a squid but both escaped at the last minute. It was good fun! One of us also braved the early morning for the tai chi class. It is quite an experience being on the deck sailing past the scenery and doing the tai chi. I've never done it before and didn't feel silly at all.

The staff were excellent. All spoke good English and were really quite humorous making the trip even more enjoyable!

We also got the transfer from Hanoi to Halong Bay before the cruise which was on a mini bus. This cost 25USD per person pick up and drop off door to door and made everything hassle free.mthentrip is around 3 hours one way so worth he price too.

We would absolutely recommend Bhaya to anyone thinking of using them and will certainly use them again if we go back to Halong Bay.

We did this cruise on 23 Feb 2014. Though we had heavy rain, Wang Ming Cheng, Cruise Manager and his crew made this trip very pleasant and enjoyable. They're a happy lot! The food was delicious! I want to thank the lady guide from the cruise who brought us to the caves and looked after us all the way!

I hope they would not remove the fishing village as that is the essence of Halong Bay.

The staff on our cruise was exceptional. The boat was clean. The food was great. The activities and excursions were a great bonus. My favorite was just relaxing on the balcony and catching the cool breeze. Will definitely return!

This small junk boat on Halong Bay was wonderful. From the moment we stepped aboard until we debarked we were treated as owners of the boat. No request was ever denied. The staff are polite, knowledgeable, and there for you. When traveling to Viet Nam, this is a must stop. Our room had a wonderful view and it was very comfortable with a nice ensuite bathroom. The only negative is that someone decided to paint the beautiful teak boats white. Why? I do not know; this was a mistake, but I would not hesitate to come and enjoy the experience again.
