Calypso Cruise


The Calypso Cruises, a steel boat with sturdy double bottoms, wears a white gown as the beauty of a goddess in her twenties, full of life energy. Each cruise consists of 20 luxury cabins, designed in classic Indochina style. All furniture is made from high-grade wood with deep brown color creating a warm, close to nature atmosphere. Rooms are well-equipped with modern amenities and large windows with beautiful views of the bay. With a capacity of 50 guests, the Calypso Cruises create a cozy and fun space. The highlight of the cruise is three white masts. Looking from a far distance, three masts stand out to the sea to take the ship glide on the green channel, make the guests feel secure and fully enjoy exciting visit of Lan Ha.

Discover the mysterious Lan Ha Bay by Calypso Cruises class, visitors will be able to kayak themselves around the Van Boi area or immersed in the blue water of Ba Trai Dao beach. On this journey, visitors also visit Sang – Toi cave in the area adjacent with Lan Ha bay, Ha Long bay; discover Quan Y caves – a landmark of heroic history; or visit Viet Hai – an isolated village located entirely in the middle of the sea, covered by high mountains and jungle of Cat Ba National Park.

In the morning, when the sun starts to flow through the glass door, the sound of the waves will wake visitors up to welcome a new day. Visitors can go to top floor to practice Tai Chi, play golf, or simply lie on the sun loungers in the nature with a cocktail and enjoy panoramic views of Lan Ha Bay while the cruise gently sail across the water.

Calypso Cruises will help you to record exciting emotions and even the most memorable moments when cruising on Lan Ha Bay.
