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 Cruise 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. Every day, the Emeraude Cruise journeys through one of the world's most dazzling natural wonders and into the sepia realm of a dream. Here, Ha Long

Emeraude Cruise details:
Cabins and suite
Bhaya cruise’s Deluxe cabin (12.5m2) offers all the amenities necessary for you to feel comfortable during your Halong bay junk trip: twin beds or a queen-size bed, air-conditioner, wall fan, refrigerator, en-suite bathroom with shower. Each features a picture window, providing added light and memorable views.
The captain’s suite
Also housed on the sundeck and benefiting from the same stunning views is the Captain’s Suite. At nearly 17 square metres, the port-side suite is spacious and comfortable and lined with colonial-era bamboo matting. On the wall, antique maps will help you plot the vessel’s path through the karsts and islands of Halong Bay.
The Emeraude suite
At 19.5 square metres, the luxurious Emeraude Suite is roomy enough for a queen-sized bed, as well as a large sofa and space to entertain, which makes it a favourite with families. Its cream and green colour scheme adds warmth and nostalgia to the wooden fixtures and flooring. A sundeck location on the starboard side and ample windows deliver wide views across the bay. Outside, an adjacent sitting area is the perfect place to enjoy a drink or relax and marvel at the passing scenery.

Cabins & Suites
On the Emeraude, buoyed by one of the world’s most beautiful bays, little things matter. Colonial style brass fans. Hardwood floors. Beadboard walls. And the most comfortable beds on the bay. In every cabin, the rich decor evokes another age, when craftsmanship mattered more than the bottom line.

But make no mistake: The Emeraude makes concessions to the modern era, with air conditioning, electricity and other amenities typical of an upscale hotel room. No need to bring your own hair dryer. We’ve got that. Umbrellas, slippers, bathrobes. We’ve imagined all the contingencies so you’ll be fully prepared to enjoy your cruise.

Room to relax
Space, privacy and relaxation are themes that run throughout the Emeraude.
On the main and upper decks, there are a number of quiet seating areas. And there’s always an opportunity to stretch out on a sundeck lounger.
The emphasis is always on the bay itself. The aim is to provide true comfort at all times in order to best enjoy the surroundings.

Excellent boat trip and great food. We booked three nights at the Prince boat and we enjoyed every moment of it. They sail to a lesser visited area of the bay. So, the only boats you see belong to the Indochina Junk fleet...
