Have fun with our Head Chef

Bhaya Classic’s talented Head Chef is not only someone who takes superb care of all your meals (and sometimes weight) during the trip, but you will also meet him countless times in some on board activities.

Cooking demonstration - Spring roll in Bhaya Classic CruisesOn the first day, the Chef himself will teach you a really simple but authentic Vietnamese cooking demonstration. The dish, spring roll, is popular and delicious, yet super easy to make. Kids love playing with food, and even love it more if there’s something to actually eat after playing. Therefore, give them a chance to do what they are normally not allowed to do at home. This is one of the most favorite sessions of our tiny guests, especially the part when they get to eat what they have made. From now on, you can brag about being able to cook the authentic Vietnamese cuisine to your friends back home.

Water fun cannot be missed on a cruise trip

Sport activities in water are forever loved by kids. Cruising in one of the most beautiful bay in the world, you obviously shouldn’t miss any water activities offered by the operator. This is also an opportunity to enjoy the family’s participation and exchange some exciting memories with your children.

Fun-for-kid-in-Halong-Bay-Cruises-2Famous with the calm and peaceful water, kayaking and swimming in Halong Bay is especially safer for children. Share a kayak boat with one of your kids and let him/her take the lead in the front seat. For that you can always keep an eye on their safety, while still give them the feeling of completing the challenge themselves.

If you’re lucky enough to arrange a 3D2N trip, there will definitely some times to stop in one of Halong Bay’s white sand beaches. Surrounded by the legendary green limestone and karsts, the beach might not be huge but indeed lovely. Swimming nearby with the kids or just sunbathing lazily under the sun, or ask our staffs for some simple sport like tug or soccer.

The friendly staffs are always there for your kid

Relaxing will be so much easier when you can let your kids off doing whatever they want around the boat. Our staffs love children, and therefore, will always be around and keep an eye on the small guests. Sometimes they became best friends. And our friends often gave us so many surprises by innocent love or unexpected gifts sometimes.
