Gray Line Cruise, with fourteen cabins, is extremely small compared to other relevant cruises that launched coincidentally in Halong Bay but big enough to accommodate thirty clients whilst matching their different needs of room sizes, privacy and routes.

With extensive cabin area and decks, huge windows either of rooms or restaurant, pretty balconies, some suites connected to nearby cabins to make a “private suite for Seven” with personal access within a cruise for different groups of budget passengers, Gray Line Cruise of 14-cabins has become a hot vessel right after its debut in August 2013. Families with children may prefer the forepart where two suites and a connecting cabin can be combined closely, youngsters or students can feel comfortable with the budget-friendly deluxe downstairs cabins, whilst honeymooners may love the balcony cabins. It is an over-expectation provision, as commented by some of its very first guests.

Exploring the centrally protected heritage site, Gray Line Cruise not only offer watching the bay, kayaking, visiting pearl farms and caving walks at top-rated attractions, but also offers the best conditions for its clients to hang around, get a short climb up a cute island to take the bird eyes’ view of Halong Bay, or just offers drinks so that the clients can refuse activities & have their own leisure time.

The holiday spirit of clients is most important for the crew, so activities on Gray Line Cruise are being organized to match the least-crowded hours, to visit the most beautiful routes, or to bring special experience to its guests. Visits and talks to the farmers, or boat-rowing people are considered more important than seeing popular places where every tourist can reach.
