Explore Vietnam's spectacular Halong Bay on a Galaxy Classic Cruise

Cruise through the islands

Galaxy Classic Cruise offers boat tours of one of the world's most beautiful bays: Halong Bay, dotted with thousands of limestone islands rising dramatically from emerald waters. The bay is about 170 km (105 mi) from Hanoi.

Tour a cave, kayak the bay

Launched in 2011, the boat is styled like a traditional junk. The restaurant features local seafood. Activities include visits to a cave and a floating fishing village, kayaking, sunset parties, and just lazing on the sundeck and taking in the views.

Bay-view cabins

In the 28 modern cabins, windows open to bay views and soft breezes. Cabins also offer fully stocked minibars and individually controlled air conditioning. Private bathrooms come with showers, slippers, hair dryers, and toiletries.
