The latest and famous TripAdvisor award has been announced. For the 5th consecutive year, Bhaya Classic has won the Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor, which is approved by thousands of travelers around the world.

These young people, who work with their hearts, are the soul and spirit of Bhaya Classic. Cruising in the Bay every day, they’re not only the expert of Halong Bay, but also assistants and best friends to the guests.

 

We stayed on the Bhaya III and could not have asked for a better crew, The warm welcome and service was 1st class. We would highly recommend this company.
It was our 25th wedding anniversary holiday and the crew made it a very memorable one, thank you!

Herne Bay, United Kingdom

 Wow what an amazing experience! A beautiful boat crewed by the most delightful individuals.Site seeing aside, attention to detail and the best possible customer service made this an absolute pleasure.

Sue & Andy, United Kingdom

 From the moment we were walking towards the boat and saw the crew standing there waving and calling out “welcome”, we knew this cruise would be wonderful and we were right. Nothing was too much trouble, the food was worthy of a fine dining restaurant and the crew were some of the friendliest people we have ever met.”

Rita, Australia

The year has been a great one for Bhaya Classic. We had welcomed special events including a breath-taking fashion show on board, cruise with famous chef, personal anniversary and company’s retreats. 2015 is still half way to go. Bhaya Classic team is still making effort every day to bring a meaningful lifetime cruising experience to travelers from all over the world.

In Bhaya, Safety and Service Are What Matter

Bhaya Classc in dry dockOnce a year, Bhaya Classic rests herself in an annual dry dock.

Being put into service as the largest cruises fleet in Halong Bay since 2007 doesn’t make Bhaya Classic team an old and behind folk. Serving about 50,000 passengers each year and cruising every day in the tough tropical weather of Halong Bay, the ships cannot stay away from aging forever. However, there is a reason why Bhaya Classic can still maintain her leading and top-notch position among younger teams in the Bay over the past 8 years. The annual 1-2 month scrupulous dry dock of Bhaya Classic allows the ships to be refreshed and renovated to secure safety and perfect facility throughout.

Why bother resting for the whole one or even 2 months of the year while the demand doesn’t even decrease? In Bhaya Classic, it’s not just about making profit by having the ship cruising all year long. Cruising in the World Heritage of Halong Bay is about providing a meaningful and unique journey, leaving people with memories and satisfaction. That’s what traveling means to us, to all those travelers out there seeking for experience and enjoyment in their trips.

What happens to Bhaya Classic fleet in the dock and off the bay?

Bhaya Cruises in Dry DockBhaya Classic Deluxe lines will respectively undergo dry dock from 2nd May to 21st September. During 1 month resting, what happens to each of our boats?

  • Hull’s going under checking to assure the integrity of the steel and boat’s safety
  • Engines and technical categories are under maintenance
  • Safety equipment are carefully examined and renewed
  • The interior and furniture in cabins, restaurant, bar and sundeck are repainted and polished, resulting in a renovation in appearance
  • New facilities and equipment are installed

Bhaya Classic in Dry DockOnce out of dry dock, Bhaya Classic will slip back to the Bay with remarkable refurbishment of safety equipment, facilities and appearance, hence expected to provide even higher quality service to advance our guests’ cruising experience.

In the end, putting the ship in a dry dock is not just our annual job, but more about our passion and promise to deliver superlative safety, well-equipped facilities and perfect service to customers.

The most amusing part of the story is: WE STILL CRUISE! With the team of 4, Bhaya Classic fleet is always in service during May and September. Enjoy the cruise, while waiting for our brand new image!

Why take 2 night cruise instead of 1 night cruise in Halong Bay?

Halong Bay – Asia’s top five tropical island paradises and World Heritage nominated by CNN Travel and UNESCO was described as a stunning place to go cruising with its magnificent mountainous islands and dreamlike coves. If you are still scratching your head to find out whether 1 night or 2 night cruise is much more worth it then this post is for you.

Hereunder are three reasons why you should add 2 night continuous adventure EXCLUSIVELY on Bhaya Cruises to your bucket list:

Bhaya Classic Cruise Shuttle Bus

1 night cruise in Halong Bay? What an exhausting and time-consuming adventure!

Most of travelers will regret having barely enough time to discover this legendary world of stone islands, soak up the views of Halong Bay ‘s salt water-flooded forests, coral reefs and tropical forests featuring thousands of species of fauna and flora.  Why?

3 hours 30 minutes on a bumpy road from Hanoi to Halong Bay could be the only explanation. 1 night cruises often starting at noon time and finishing in the end of the following morning, you will stay on boat a bit less than 24 hours and spend more than 7 hours in a bus for it. 2 day 1 night cruises often rush passengers into truly experiencing the geographic work of art.

Plus, with 3 day 2 night continuous trip on Bhaya Cruises, your whole time will be dedicated to your best comfort. This is obviously an advantage over 2 day 1 night cruise because you are no longer worried about being switched to another boat during your journey.

Halong Bay - Bhaya Classic Cruise

Absolutely Majestic and Mysterious scenery

The most significant difference between 1 night cruise and 2 night cruise is that the later allows you to go deep inside the Bay and discover the road less traveled such as Bai Tu Long Bay and Lan Ha Bay which promisingly guarantee you nothing but majestic scenery.

People say “Travelling is so much fun” because it pushes us to go beyond our comfort zones. In Halong Bay, the mature karst landscape developed during a warm, wet, tropical climate over a period of 20 million years and 1600 limestone karsts and islets which rise out of the waters of the bay to heights of up to 100 meters and the numerous caves and grottos spread throughout the bay are not familiar to most people.

Bhaya Classic Cruise Halong Bay

Are you ready to rock your vacation?

You will have more time to participate in many activities such as biking in the National Park of Cat Ba Island, swimming in the emerald water, kayaking to gaze natural coral reefs which are the top treasure of underwater world and lying down on the long and white sand beaches wrapping quiet and peaceful fishing villages.

Instand ooking is now available for 3 days continuous Halong Cruise here! Do not hesitate to grasp this chance to live life to the fullest!
