The Capacity:
 
The Bhaya Classic ships each have from 15 to 20 cabins, for a passenger capacity ranging from 40 to 60 persons. Normal cabin capacity is up to 2 adults and 1 child. In addition to cruise passengers, each boat will carry a full crew, varying between 15 and 25 team members depending on the boat and the number of passengers. Apart from the private space within your cabin, the boat's open-plan restaurant and bar area, as well as the sundeck on the top level, offer ample space for socializing with other passengers, or for simply enjoying the scenery on your own.
 
The features:
 
The Bhaya Classic boats are of an ideal size for this type of cruise, as they accommodate a large enough group of passengers to create a group dynamic - for many of our clients, socializing with fellow travellers turns out to be an unexpected benefit to a Halong Bay cruise – and still small enough to allow privacy and a very personal approach to all activities. Our boats are designed to fit the needs of a wide variety of guests. We offer connecting cabins to better serve travelling families. Our welcoming open-plan bar is a perfect place for a meeting of friends both new and old. The on-board Spa & Jacuzzi are a haven of relaxation and rejuvenation.
 
The Design:
 
The Bhaya Classic ships are wooden boats constructed in the traditional oriental style long favoured by shipbuilders in this area. The construction material and style of the boats give them a classic feel which sets them apart from most cruise vessels around the world. On board, you will find atmospheric spaces which speak of the heritage design, and the small ship concept encourages a cosy feel which makes a Bhaya Classic cruise a pleasantly social affair. The colour scheme on board is a fusion of the rich browns of hardwood, white, and turquoise blue trim with red highlights. The wooden furniture on board only heightens the sense of timeless elegance which seems a natural extension of Halong Bay itself.
 
Safty & Security:
 
At Bhaya Classic, the safety and security of our guests and team members is paramount. Before each cruise begins, all of our cruise passengers take part in a safety briefing. Our team members on the boat are well acquainted with all on-board safety systems and undergo rigorous monthly safety training. Bhaya Classic boats are all equipped with integrated boat-wide alarm systems, life rings, life rafts and fire extinguishers. Each passenger cabin is connected to the alarm system, and is equipped with a fire extinguisher, hammer, flashlight and life jackets. When it comes to safety, there are no short-cuts.
