Overview

Introduction

Part of what is now the largest tour operator in Halong Bay, Bhaya Classic Cruise pride themselves on providing authentic cruising experiences at affordable prices. Inspired by the traditional Chinese junk boats, the Bhaya Classic line are constructed in a classic Oriental style, which is unique to this part of the world.

Each Bhaya ship has between 15 and 20 rooms, so it’s still quite a warm, social experience while not being too big and impersonal. The colour scheme of rich browns, turquoise, and accents of red only add to the atmosphere and charm of the ship.

Guests can choose to enjoy the passing views of Halong Bay in the privacy of their own cabin, or in a more social setting on the top deck, or in the open plan restaurant and bar area. The boat is designed to be very dynamic in terms of the guests it’s catering to.

The larger adjoining suites are perfect for groups or families traveling together, and the open-plan bar area makes for a great place to meet friends if you’re traveling alone. All crew members have undergone rigorous training, and are up to date with all of the latest safety practices; so you can sit back, relax, and focus on your surroundings.

Unbeatable Luxury
2018-09-30

We booked a luxury cruise in Halong Bay, Vietnam. The Bhaya Classic Cruise promised unbeatable scenery, unmatched service, spectacular cabins, 5 star dining and more. Did they deliver? Absolutely yes! I think most of the boats offer great facilities, the people we talked to on the guided tours were all saying they had great boats. But Bhaya was spectacular from start to finish. One great touch was that they served us dinner on the sundeck, something we didn't notice on other boats. Halong Bay really is one of the most spectacularly beautiful places we had ever witnessed, the wife was so happy, it was just perfect. I quite liked the nights as well.Many board huddle closely together in small lagoons within the bay. The lights from each boat giving a very pretty picture. You can hear conversations drifting incoherently across the water, it’s quite magical. Hats off to The Bhaya.


Highlight of Southeast Asia
2017-04-09

The Bhaya Classic Cruise in Halong Bay lived up to all expectations. I enjoyed this part of my Southeast Asian experience as much as anywhere and there have really been some highlights. The boat was clean and beautifully decorated. After spending a few nights in hostels this was pure luxury for me. The bay itself provides some memorable scenic memories which I shall treasure. I have stunning photographs to last me a lifetime. The Vietnamese people were lovely and I wold like to thank the crew for their wonderful service.


Our own Private Boat
2017-07-12

We went with some friends for a three day cruise in Halong Bay with Bhaya Classic Premium Cruises. There were six of us and the travel agent recommended this company because they have smaller boats than some of the others. We had the entire boat to ourselves, it was an amazing trip. It really was like living a rock star life for the time we were there. Very high standards, beautiful decor nd a crew all to ourselves. The meals onboard were really great as we all enjoyed our own private boat. For small groups this is a great getaway.


Small is Beautiful
2017-08-07

The Bhaya Classic Premium Cruise offers a more intimate atmosphere than the other boats in the area. I live in Vietnam and have been to Halong Bay before. My parents were visiting from the UK and I wanted them to enjoy the bay. I booked with this company because they have smaller boats and are not as crowded as some of the other boats. The one we were on only had about 6 or 7 cabins and the atmosphere on board was better for it. The trips off the boat don’t seem to be as good as they used to. The floating village is just a tourist trap now aways. But the bay is always worth seeing, it’s very scenic. My parents really enjoyed the trip and the crew looked after us all very well.
