History of Emeraude Cruise
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.Today the Emeraude offers a regular
cruise service on board a luxurious replicasteamer with 39 cabins
meticulously designed to evoke the nostalgic charm of colonial
Each bespoke cabin exudes warmth and character with high
standards of workmanship, distinguished style and impeccable
service. With its polished wooden floors and brass fixtures
and fittings the Emeraude’s rooms offer timeless elegance.
restaurant offers delicious, freshly caught local seafood
and other specialities. While enjoying breathtaking views
of the bay, passengers can enjoy the simple and honest flavours
of traditional fare.
the sun deck, passengers can enjoy a soothing foot massage
while sipping a refreshing cocktail and gazing at the rock
formations reflected in the crystal clear water of the bay.
The Emeraude’s huge paddle wheel opens to reveal a swimming
deck offering passengers the opportunity to swim in the
calm waters of the bay surrounded by the majestic scenery.At
dawn, that most magical time as the sun rises, the soft
and graceful movements of a t’ai chi class on the deck complement
the atmospheric silence of the bay.
