The first class facilities aboard the Au Co Cruise are of luxury hotel standard, and our setting amongst the gorgeous limestone towers and gently lapping sea of Halong Bay is a marriage made in Heaven. There are spa and jacuzzi facilities on board, as well as a library, sundeck, restaurant, bar, and a nighttime cinema.
Views of the UNESCO Heritage-listed Halong Bay are omnipresent throughout the Au Co Cruise and onboard experiences are only enhanced by its splendour. All of our meals are in full view of the bay and any time spent relaxing on the sundeck or in your cabin will be to the soundtrack of gently lapping waves against forest-topped mountains.
Our itinerary features many exciting excursions to islands, caves and floating villages, while still giving you enough time to unwind aboard the Au Co Cruise.
Choose the Au Co Cruise for a luxurious stay in Halong Bay.
