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?
- 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
Once 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!
