Calypso Cruise


The Calypso Cruises, a steel boat with sturdy double bottoms, embodies elegance akin to a goddess in her prime, exuding youthful energy and vitality. This cruise features 20 luxurious cabins designed in classic Indochina style, with furniture crafted from high-grade wood in deep brown hues, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere close to nature. These well-equipped rooms offer modern amenities and large windows that provide captivating views of the bay. With a capacity of 50 guests, Calypso Cruises offers a cozy and enjoyable space for all aboard.

Exploring the mysterious Lan Ha Bay aboard a Calypso Cruises class vessel, you will have the opportunity to kayak around the Van Boi area or bask in the azure waters of Ba Trai Dao beach. During this journey, you can also explore Sang–Toi cave, located adjacent to Lan Ha Bay and Halong Bay, discover Quan Y caves, a historic landmark, or visit Viet Hai, an isolated village nestled amidst the sea, surrounded by towering mountains and the jungle of Cat Ba National Park.

As the morning sun filters through the glass doors, the sound of the waves gently wakes you up to welcome a new day. You can ascend to the top floor to practice Tai Chi, play golf, or simply relax on sun loungers amidst nature with a cocktail while enjoying panoramic views of Lan Ha Bay as the cruise sails serenely across the water.

Calypso Cruises promises to capture the excitement and create lasting memories of cruising on Lan Ha Bay.
