Au Co Cruise stands out among the luxury cruises in Halong Bay; it prides itself in setting new standards in terms of comfort, customer satisfaction, and environmental protection. Au Co Cruise is far more than just another company offering a luxury tour of Halong Bay.

Indeed, the tour itself is quite luxurious, but we’ll get back to that in a minute. Au Co Cruise is remarkable for something much more important; their steadfast commitment to protecting the fragile environment of Halong Bay.

The team on Au Co understand that if we want to have the chance to continue to enjoy the coveted scenery of Halong Bay, we need to engage in sustainable, responsible tourism. That’s why the Au Co family commit their efforts to supporting numerous environmental initiatives in the region.

Their focus on the outer world, however, does nothing to detract from their attention onboard. The ship itself is state-of-the-art, and so are all of the cabins and facilities within it. Guests can choose between five different types of luxurious cabins, all of which flaunt their spacious designs, romantic lighting, and plush beds.

So much to see and do

Take my advice, get yourself to Vietnam and enjoy Au Co Cruise. This was one of the best things I’ve done in years. Really top experiences all round. The cave was amazing and I loved the kayaking. AT one point we kayaked through a tunnel in the rock to discover a completely hidden lagoon. The scenery is awesome and the standards on the boat are set very high indeed. We also went for a bike ride on one of the islands. This was so good that the time just raced by, I wish we could have stayed for longer. Our cabin was lovely and we enjoyed the private balcony, it made us feel special. The food is good and the crew is also very good.

Au Co Cruise Halong Bay

This large cruise boat provides high quality of service and delightful cabins and dining. The boat has four decks and all the cabins have ocean views and private balconies. I would recommend Au Co Cruise Halong Bay to anyone, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience from start to finish.

Serene and Scenic

Just returned to the States after a really great vacation in Vietnam. High points for me were Hoi An and Halong Bay where we enjoyed a very large cruise boat. I was intrigued by the rock formations here that provide stunning scenery. The activities were a little too well planned but it didn’t spoil anything. I really enjoyed ending the day simply relaxing on the top deck with a cocktail taking in the serenity and great scenery that is here.

Big boat and high standards.

I think we managed to book one of the biggest boats. Au Co Cruise Halong Bay is a good solid company offering great holidays on there boat. It was the wife who was keen to do this, I just went along, but I’m glad I did. The Bay is an amazing place, unlike anything I have ever seen before. I was surprised by the landscape here it is quite surreal. All facilities, activities, staff and accommodation are excellent as is the food. I heartily recommend this activity to anyone.
