Bhaya Au Co is arguably the most luxurious of Bhaya’s fleet, specializing in two-night cruises to more far-flung and less densely touristed areas of the bay.

The Bhaya Au Co is a luxurious 30 cabin steel cruise ship specializing in three-day tours of the famous Halong Bay. With a range of fabulous facilities, attentive staff and exciting activities taking you to the most remote areas of the bay that are usually out of the reach of most traditional cruise ships, Bhaya Au Co is guaranteed to take you on an unforgettable journey.
The cabins on this ship are spacious and elegantly designed in traditional Vietnamese style, with exposed wood and hand-crafted furniture. Sip a coffee on your private balcony or sink onto your welcoming day bed as the scenery slips by.
Au Co boasts an on-board spa and open air jacuzzi, well-appointed library, dining room and sundeck, and activities include visiting local fishing villages, visiting caves and deserted islands, cooking classes, wine tasting and early morning tai chi on the top deck.
The restaurant is particularly renowned, serving organic food grown locally at Bhaya’s farms on Cat Ba island or unsurprisingly sourced directly from the sea, and the talented chefs all specialize in creating innovative dishes to suit all palates.
A proud addition to one of Halong Bay’s leading cruise lines, Bhaya Au Co is the pioneer of luxury cruising in Vietnam, and the polish and sophistication of her service will add a touch of old world glamour to any itinerary.

The cabins are decorated in traditional Vietnamese style, with hand-made furniture and wooden floors. They are all air-conditioned with glass doors leading out to your own private balcony, have an en-suite and can be configured as either king or twin beds. Interconnecting cabins are also available.
For ultimate luxury and unparalleled views, opt for the Long Quan suite at the stern of the ship, or the Au Co Suite at the bow with its expansive balcony and plush daybed.


Children are welcome on board Bhaya Au Co and interconnecting cabins are available. Babysitting can be organized with advance notice, and child friendly activities are also on offer.


The Bhaya Au Co has everything on board that you’d expect from a luxury hotel. Why not relax with a cup of coffee in the library, unwind in the spa or soak up the views from the open air jacuzzi before indulging in a delicious meal in the waterside restaurant, prepared by one of the fleet’s specialty chefs.
Meals can be prepared how you like them, when you like them and served where you like- a romantic candlelit dinner on the beach or a picnic in the jungle, just speak to your crew who will be able to organize everything. A BBQ on the sundeck is also not to be missed.


Settle into a gentle cruise through Halong Bay stopping off at an exciting array of caves and islands in Vietnam’s most famous bay. On Bhaya Au Co’s signature longer itineraries you can explore further afield, heading out to mountainous Cat Ba Island and the lesser known Bai Tu Long Bay, visiting local floating villages en route. Activities also include cycling, snorkeling, swimming and fishing.
