Halong Bay, "the bay where the dragon descends into the sea", is a spectacular seascape in the Gulf of Tonkin. More than 2,000 islands, islets and limestone formations rise from the emerald waters, remarkably shaped by wind and waves.
Founded in 2011, we have been operating a fleet of 3 newly built wooden junks: Aurora, Luxe Aurora and Albatross Cruises.
Newly launched in 2013, The Albatross Cruises is combined the charm and great comfort with traditional style junks. Our staff is trained to provide the best possible service to our passengers at all times. The relaxed and welcoming manner of our hospitality creates an atmosphere in which our guests feel that they are at home away from home.
What better way to experience the natural beauty and spectacular seascape of this UNESCO World Heritage site than on board the Albatross Cruises!
