Company launches overnight charters in Vietnam

Emeraude Classic Cruises is launching an overnight charter business in Halong Bay in northern Vietnam.

The all-white Emeraude vessel, with its 34 cabins and three suites, was modeled on a historic paddle wheel steamer by the same name that plied the bay and Gulf of Tonkin from 1906-1937. The aesthetic of the modern-day Emeraude is reflective of its predecessor — polished wooden floors, bead board walls and brass fittings evoke the charm of colonial Indochina.

Customizable itineraries and activities aboard the ship or in the bay are among the options open to groups chartering the boat, along with tai-chi and cooking classes, spa services, kayaking, film screenings and stopovers at the bay’s attractions.

The Emeraude has organized itineraries that include themed afternoon cocktail parties on the top deck, atmospheric fine dining and live music performances set in the rocky mouth of a cave, as well as guided explorations of the bay’s countless hidden beaches, islands and coves.

Overnight charters on the Emeraude are priced from $12,000 to $13,500. Emeraude Classic Cruises is owned and operated by The Apple Tree Group, a French-owned, Ho Chi Minh City-based company.
