With an important role in Eastern culture, peony is selected for the style of Peony Cruises in the aim to provide visitors a royal experience in Halong Bay and Lan Ha Bay

For its most popular colour of red, peony is the symbol for honor and wealth in Chinese culture. Peony only appeared in the palaces and rich noble families in China in the old time. Regarded as the queen of flowers, peonies were also admired in literature, music and paintings for centuries.

Like a striking large red peony in the sea, each boat of Peony Cruises shows its noble colour among others, giving each guest his or her own palace. The royal beauty represents the intricate design of the reception space, each cabin, the restaurant, the spa and the bar in a fine combination, thanks to talented designers from France, the country that is famous for imperial architecture and design. In addition, every item on board also meets strict Western standards for the highest quality.

As the boat takes you through the most attractive areas of the Tonkin Gulf, with immense limestone mountains standing millions of years, tranquil floating villages, some people spreading their fishnets or some fish jumping over the water surface of the World Heritage Site, you can contemplate beautiful nature without any bustling noisy city for a smooth escape to peace - the symbol of a full-bloom peony.

Totally relaxed on comfy benches with an umbrella cocktail, you will feel like kings and queens of another untouched serene beautiful world, your own world.

"Fantastic Cruise"

We went on a 2 night 3 day cruise as a group of 6. Can not fault anything from start to finish, very friendly staff attention to detail is so lovely. Would highly recommend. The programme they have is great fun, we did kayaking, caving, bike riding, we went to a oyster factory. We even learnt how to make spring rolls. But the views around the Bay is just stunning, make sure you get up early to see the sun rise. The only complaint is it wasn’t long enough, we wanted to stay on it longer. The food was well presented very fresh, thank you for a lovely time

"Lovely Cruise"

We really loved our one night cruise in Halong Bay. The boat was fairly new and the rooms were beautiful, the food was amazing and the staff were extremely friendly. David was our host and he was great. The activities on board were fun and I would highly recommend this cruise.

"Highly recommendation"

Absolutely loved our time on the Peony Cruise 2, from start to finish. It was busy packed with fun activities but there was also enough time to relax and enjoy the luxurious room and stunning views. From start to finish Amy and her team made such an effort to ensure everyone enjoyed themselves, what a lovely, friendly team. The food was a fantastic buffet with a huge variety and a set menu in the evening, very accommodating to my friend with allergies. A busy day out kayaking, swimming in the bay then an evening consisting of a cooking class, squid fishing before enjoying some tasty happy hour cocktails!! Up early the following morning for sunrise, Thai chi and an interesting visit to the caves - our only regret is to staying for 2 nights with Peony Cruise 2!! Would go back!
