We were lucky enough to stay overnight on this gorgeous boutique style boat. Smaller numbers than other cruises I believe. Attentive staff, well appointed rooms...our first cruise of any sort! Great choice of activities offered ...from Tai Chi to cooking class to excursions into massive caves and swimming off the back of the boat...or just sit on deck sipping a cocktail and watch the beautiful scenery go by. You can do as much or as little as you like. Weather was a bonus....Dont miss sunrise...was a highlight! Thoroughly recommend this group!
Since its launch in 2007, Bhaya Classic has pioneered the overnight cruise concept in Halong Bay while offering authentic cruising experiences in the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Bringing the best value for money and earning the trust of around 35,000 guests each year, Bhaya Classic has earned its leading position as the most trust-worthy cruise provider in Halong Bay.
The 8 Bhaya Classic ships are constructed in a classic, oriental style, while incorporating modern facilities catering to every aspect of passenger comfort. Each ship has between 4 and 20 cabins accommodating 12-40 guests per cruise. The relatively small design of the ships create informal, warm spaces promoting a convivial feel on board.
On board, you will find atmospheric spaces which speak of the heritage design, while passenger cabin décor emphasizes comfort and harmony. The small ship concept adopted by Bhaya Classic from its inception encourages a cosy feel, which makes a Bhaya Classic cruise a pleasantly social affair.

We stayed on Bhaya Classic 1 for two days and one night. We could not have enjoyed ourselves more. The food, activities, views and hospitality comingled perfectly to create an unforgettable experience. All of the staff were excellent from the before we even boarded with cheering and waving, welcoming is from the shore. It's a long drive from Hanoi, but it will be quickly forgotten once you are greeted with a cool towel, warm smile and food and activities designed to make your stay as exciting or relaxing as you desire. The price is worth it!
Went on a 2 day 1 night experience on the Bhaya7 cruise from this company line. From the food to the attention, everything was perfect. Lovely mood to have a taste of one of the most beautiful places in the world. The crew was outstanding, specially the host called Huy, who was at every moment with only one thing in mind, the happiness of the costumer. A total must do if you want to experience one of the jewels Asia has to offer.
We just had the most enjoyable and relaxing over-night cruise in the magic Halong Bay onboard Bhaya 3.. very welcoming staff, well organised activities and the most important for us French - absolutely delicous food! Thanks Bhaya for everything and hope to see you again soon (who knows?) Marie-Claire and Lars Norlund, Bordeaux, France.
We spent Christmas Eve on the boat and it was delightful! Yet be aware that you are going to very popular place (nothing to do with Bhaya of course) and that it's a kind of carnival to go there... I would advice to stay more than one night otherwise you feel like rushing from and back to Hanoi... back to the boat....great service, super nice rooms, good food... It looks a bit more expensive than other tours but the quality is there, you feel like traveling out of time when waking up in the morning, in the middle of islands surrounding you.... Bhaya was a very good solution!
Very great service, very good food, a trip to recommand! Magistral rooms, cooking curse on board. We were on a 7 cabins boat, with 6 other couples. Nice pictures to make when the sun is rising and setting.
Just like what the others said, the trip is well organized, the crew are friendly and helpful. One extra thing I like is that I could watch the Real Madrid vs Bayern on the boat since some of the crew members are Real fans like me and we were just happy to enjoy the late night with 4 goals. They also treated me noodle during the intermission. Another surprise is that there was a big group of Spanish tourists there and I can practice a bit my poor Spanish. Por fin, es un viaje inolvidable y Bhaya Cruise es el mejor en Hanoi.
I was prepared for the worst. Thunder storm, having to deal with weird people, having to pretend to like horrible food, and ending up in a smelly hotel room somewhere between Ha Noi and Halong Bay. Instead, I was blessed with one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. The weather was amazing, the scenery was like a dream come true (I had to pinch myself), the fellow passengers were wonderful, the food was delicious, the crew were warm and professional, Alex the manager was charming and basically perfect, the nights were starry, the activities were fantastic, the days were sunny, and the Bhaya Cruise sales office gave me one of the two best cabins. I felt so happy. And lucky! I bought the three days and two nights package, which I thought was perfect. I genuinely recommend the Bhaya classic cruise ship from the bottom of my heart. It was a delight to stay on such a beautiful and intimate ship.
My relatives and I enjoyed the 2 day trip on Classic III to visit Halong Bay. The beauty of nature is amazing: the peaceful sea, the interesting islands, the amazing caves, the warm sunrise... The cruise was great too. We felt comfortable on board (thanks to cruise captain). The staff were nice and helpful, especially the cruise manager Mr. Tung. He has a sense of humor and actively took care of our needs. A really nice young man you would like to talk to. The itinerary was good. We could enjoy all activities in a relaxed way. With the nice cruise crew and the activity arrangement, this cruise is highly recommended.
We spent interesting and very relaxing time as much as we expected. Great nature, interesting activities and excellent your hospitality. All of them are perfect. I never forget this 2 days. Thank you Halong Bay, Thank you team Bhaya.
Much better than expectation. One missing thing is to see sunset. Especially, final activity was so amazing & fantastic. Guidance lady is so kind and wanna introduce to our friends about this tour & fantastic world heritage. Thank you!
The breathtaking Halong Bay is an absolute must when traveling to Vietnam and a 2 day, 1 night Bhaya cruise is a unique way to do it. We rented kayaks, went past floating villages, and got to go into the Sungsot caves. The customer service and food were excellent. I highly recommend this!
We hired a boat with a group of friends for an overnight cruise around Ha Long Bay. The boat we hired was Bhaya #5, and the head of staff was Mr Linh. The boat was very comfortable with clean and well maintained en-suite rooms. There was a dining room and a top deck to hang out on. The staff were great, in particular Mr Linh and also the head chef. The other staff were friendly but communication was a minor problem with them given the language barrier. The cruise included a visit to a kayaking area and a beautiful and massive series of caves. Several activities were also organised including Tai Chi and a spring roll cooking class. Several meals were provided - all were tasty although they were somewhat "westernised" i.e. a little bland. We asked for extra chilli sauce which solved the problem! Overall this was a very pleasant way to spend time with friends, as part of a larger trip around northern Vietnam.
Took an overnight cruise on Bhaya Classic 2. The staff worked extremely hard to make everyone feel welcome and looked after. The food was plentiful and fantastic. Left the boat three times for trips. Once to visit a secret little bay to swim which was an added bonus. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to cabin 210 which had its own Sundeck plus enormous bathroom. The only downside was that it was over too soon, should have booked two nights! The bay itself is a wonder.
A fantastic 2 night trip on Halong bay far exceeded our expectations. The check in was smooth and the staff were there to show us to our cabins. Although small (compared to a cruise ship) it had everything we needed. The staff were friendly and welcoming and entertaining. Breakfast and lunch were buffet style and dinner was served at the table, all drinks were included as was the wifi. All trips were included. Health and safety was well maintained and life jackets were worn throughout any trips on the tender. Would highly recommend Bhaya cruises
We spent two days and one night on Bhaya 3 with Alex and his crew. It was easily the highlight of our trip. The crew is friendly and accommodating, the food is fantastic thanks to a great chef, and you really can't find a better way to enjoy a truly beautiful setting. The rooms are very nice - spacious, luxurious and very clean - and the roof deck is great for sunbathing. The meals were fantastic and the staff couldn't have been nicer. I absolutely loved this boat and it was an amazing experience. Can't wait to go back soon!
Alex and his team took great care of our group of 20. The boat was beautiful, only surpassed by the amazing scenery of Halong Bay. We spent two days and one night on board and the whole group wished we had more time. we loved kayaking, cave exploring, the cooking class and enjoying happy hour during sunset. It was a great experience we will never forget!
From our welcome tea, to tai chi classes to tours we felt totally taken care of. We were on Bhaya Classic 7 for two nights and only had about 12 other guests on board. Huy and his crew were fabulous! Huy kept us updated so we always knew what was coming up next. The food was delicious and portions very, very generous. Room was much bigger than we were expecting with two large windows amd balcony. Could have stayed for another few days!
Need to spend some time in Hanoi before or after the cruise? Our combo with two day one night cruise and one night stay at one of Hanoi finest hotels is just a perfect fit for you.
