Built in the style of King Khai Dinh’s (1885-1925) ancient vessel which sailed waters of the Halong Bay almost a century ago, Bhaya II is another luxury cruise vessel designed talented French architects who have designed the first cruise vessel for Bhaya Cruises, the famed Bhaya I.
Similar to her twin sister vessel, Bhaya II provides 20 spacious, all-outside luxurious cabins, of those 2 Royal Suites (16.5m²) with large windows and private balcony on the forward upper deck, 2 Bhaya Suites (14.5m²) with large windows and direct access to the forward lower deck public viewing area and the other 16 Deluxe cabins (12.5m²) with picturesque windows. All cabins are equipped with twin or double beds, private bathroom and shower, internal telephone, and air conditioning.
The new 40-meter cruise vessel features a spacious restaurant serving eastern and western delicacies, a spa, a shop and a boutique library spreading over on three decks. Bhaya II also features a large Sundeck, offering 360º panoramic views of the Halong Bay.
In keeping with its traditions of presenting exciting on-board programs, Bhaya Cruises’ passengers will be introducing a number of cultural-inspired activities. These include morning Tai Chi exercise, traditional cooking demonstration, visiting floating fishing village, and exploring caves.
“The launch of Bhaya II reinforces Bhaya Cruises continued commitment to providing our passengers with engaging, intimate travel experience, while cruising in style and comfort”, said Bhaya Cruises General Manager Vincent Le Cannelier. He added that an international experienced management team and 30 dedicated local crew members will be on-board to give top customer services to the passengers.
Following her maiden voyage Bhaya II will commence operation of daily cruise itineraries structured over two or three days in the Halong Bay. Bhaya twin sister vessels will provide a total of 40 cabins, accommodating up to 80 passengers for all kinds of incentives and events.
