Gray Line Cruise - Discovering Ha Long Bay

Franchised by Gray Line Worldwide, Gray Line Halong, now in its fifth year, has been well known in 4-star segment, by a group of 3 overnight wooden junks in the Halong Bay. We offer a low guest-to-crew ratio; keep customer service the top priority; and offer intimate settings, with all cabins outfitted with tiled en-suites, openable windows/ private balconies/ terrace, sunbathing, and open-air bars throughout the voyage. Past cruisers applauded the friendly staff, and added that the boat's limited capacity ensured that Gray Line never felt crowded.

 

FLEET (3 Cabins, 8 Cabins, 14 Cabins)

  • GRAY LINE HALONG (8 & 14 cabins): Built in 2013, Gray Line is one of the latest wooden cruises in Halong Bay. The group of 2 unique Scorpion-shaped boats (8 & 14 cabins) standing out in the bay, features the same floor plan spreading over 3 main decks, in which, the 1st deck is for accommodation only, the second is for cabins with balcony or terrace and restaurant as well; and the upper deck is for sunbathing and open-air bar. They cozily offer boutique interiors with oak-wooden walls, where all cabins and en-suites have openable oversized sea-view windows.
     
  • GRAY LINE FAMILY (3 cabins): Among hundreds of cruises in Halong Bay, you have much difficulty finding a boat that can accommodate a family or group of 8 and beautifully cruising in your own way.
