Emeraude Cruise

Painted white with deep green accents, the Emeraude Cruise forms a sharp counterpoint to the fake Chinese junks that make up the vast majority of the local tour boats. The illusion of French colonial splendor is maintained once on board, with period deck chairs, deeply polished wooden decks, brass fittings in all the interiors, and a crew turned out in perfect sailor white.

There is no doubt from the moment you step on board that the primary focus of an Emeraude cruise is comfort. No sooner have passengers made their way to the top deck to get their cabin keys than they find themselves with a fruit juice cocktail in hand — a small but welcome gesture after the two-hour ride from Hanoi. Luggage is whisked away to the small but immaculate cabins, each with a private washroom and beds so comfortable they’re hard to get out of.

Luckily, there are plenty of incentives to do just that. First of all, there’s the food. The cruise, which starts at about lunchtime and goes to late morning the following day, lays on three sumptuous meals in the second-deck dining room. Anyone expecting a private waiter and plates brought to tables under silver domes will be disappointed; this is not the White Star Line. What there is, however, is a buffet of magnificent proportions.

Cabins & Suites

On the Emeraude, buoyed by one of the world’s 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. We’ve got that. Umbrellas, slippers, bathrobes. We’ve imagined all the contingencies so you’ll be fully prepared to enjoy your cruise.

Cabins 12m2 Suites 25m2

The Emeraude Suite

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 Emeraude’s first owner, this was the vessel’s 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 bow’s 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

Emeraude’s twin and double rooms each feature innerspring mattresses to ensure a comfortable night’s 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.

Room to relax

Space, privacy and relaxation are themes that run throughout the Emeraude.

On the main and upper decks, there are a number of quiet seating areas. And there’s always an opportunity to stretch out on a sundeck lounger.

The emphasis is always on the bay itself.  The aim is to provide true comfort at all times in order to best enjoy the surroundings.
