Emeraude offers daily overnight cruise service on board a luxurious replica steamer with 38 cabins meticulously designed to evoke the nostalgic charm of colonial Indochina.In 1910 a paddle steamer called the Emeraude was offering unforgettable cruises in Halong Bay for visitors to what was then French Indochina. The Emeraude was part of a flotilla owned by the Roque family who had left Bordeaux in 1858 in search of adventure and fortune. Over a period of more than 50 years they found both. After several ups and downs including successful trading and timber businesses near bankruptcy and being taken hostage by pirates the Roque brothers built Emeraude Perle Saphir Rubis and Onyx to ferry passengers and freight along the waterways of Indochina and cruise on magnificent Halong Bay.

 

 

Cabins & Suites

 

On the Emeraude, buoyed by one of the worlds most beautiful bays, little things matter. Colonial style brass fans. Hardwood floors. Beadboard walls. And the most comfortable beds on the bay. In every cabin, the rich decor evokes another age, when craftsmanship mattered more than the bottom line.

But make no mistake: The Emeraude makes concessions to the modern era, with air conditioning, electricity and other amenities typical of an upscale hotel room. No need to bring your own hair dryer. Weve got that. Umbrellas, slippers, bathrobes. Weve imagined all the contingencies so youll be fully prepared to enjoy your cruise. 

Cabins 12m2 - Suites 25m2

 

The Captains Suite 

 

Also housed on the sundeck and benefiting from the same stunning views is the Captains Suite.

At nearly 17 square metres, the port-side suite is spacious and comfortable and lined with colonial-era bamboo matting. 

On the wall, antique maps will help you plot the vessels path through the karsts and islands of Halong Bay.

 

The Suite Emeraude

 

At 19.5 square metres, the luxurious Emeraude Suite is roomy enough for a queen-sized bed, as well as a large sofa and space to entertain, which makes it a favourite with families.

Its cream and green colour scheme adds warmth and nostalgia to the wooden fixtures and flooring.  A sundeck location on the starboard side and ample windows deliver wide views across the bay.

Outside, an adjacent sitting area is the perfect place to enjoy a drink or relax and marvel at the passing scenery.

 

The Paul Roque Suite

 

Named after the original Emeraudes first owner, this was the vessels suite.

At nearly 16-square metres, it is the smallest of the three but has a trump card.  The popularity of the Paul Roque Suite remains unrivalled due to a private deck. The deck features both sun loungers and chairs for uninterrupted relaxation.

Its situation on the bows upper deck adds to a feeling of unhurried, truly tranquil travel.

Inside, comfortable chairs, a rug and checked wall coverings add to the "golden age" feel.

Wide windows ensure fabulous views.

 

34 Deluxe and Superior Luxury Cabins

 

Emeraudes twin and double rooms each feature innerspring mattresses to ensure a comfortable nights sleep.

Each room is equipped with all the necessary amenities, from air conditioning to hot showers.

Ultimately, the greatest attraction remains outside your cabin door. Each room opens directly onto the deck.

Superior rooms are located on lower deck with deluxe rooms on the upper deck.

We took the overnight cruise to harlong bay and to see the floating village and caves. Truely spectacular. The caves are like no caves Ive ever seen, just huge and magnificent. The cruise was fabulous although we did have a front cabin with a deck which was the bomb. The food was outstanding and service tops. A big thank you to Ronald the cruise manager for really looking after us.
