On board the Emeraude, you are sure to enjoy more than ‘just’ an unforgettable trip around the delightful Ha Long Bay. The voyage is actually a journey back in time to the period when this area was a part of French Indochina, because the modern Emeraude is a true copy of the original paddle steamer that sailed the waters of Ha Long Bay in the period 1910–1937.
In 1999, Mr. Eric Merlin saw a postcard of the beautiful old steamer, and his passion for history and boats spurred him to bring the magnificent Emeraude back to life. The new version of the vessel was completed in 2003, and you can look forward to experiencing the breath of history during your 2 day/1 night mini-cruise around Ha Long Bay.
Emeraude has 37 cabins divided between three decks. Each cabin comprises at least 14 m2 and has a separate bathroom and air conditioning. Shared facilities on board include a large restaurant, a shop, an outdoor cinema, two bars and two sun decks, where you can relax and admire the surroundings.
You can also borrow kayaks free of charge, take Tai Chi lessons, go fishing for squid, and take part in cooking courses to find out more about delicious Vietnamese cuisine.
The friendly crew are ready and waiting to take you on a truly unforgettable journey.
