Welcome to The Halong Catamaran Cruise – the premium cruise line that offers the perfect mix of traditional elegance and modern comfort. We are the only catamaran in all of Northern Vietnam. When you set out on The Halong Catamaran, you experience the world’s natural heritage sites, Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay, in absolute yachting style and luxury.
The Halong Catamaran Cruise features 72 seats, an open air top deck for viewing and photo shoots, and the highlight of the catamaran design is the beautiful hammock like loft nets suspended over the water between the two hull point of the ship, so you can sit back and water the water rushing below you.
