Being launching soon in December 2017, Era Cruise is a brand-new luxurious steel cruise which ensures the aesthetic make over and safety for clients.

Following the off-the-beaten-track route Hanoi – Hai Phong – Lan Ha Bay – Bai Tu Long Bay – Ha Long Bay, saving your drive time from 4 hours to 1.5 hours maximum, Era cruise promises to bring you incredible services and truly exclusive experience in Ha Long Bay

  • Free letter for visa on arrival * (stamp fee is not included).

(*) Vietnam Visa on Arrival (VOA) is quite different from the normal “on Arrival” concept. If you wish to do the VOA service here, you need to employ an agent in Vietnam (like our hotel) to obtain an official of approval letter for VOA before you arrive. Later, at the airport this letter must be showed together with your valid passport to get the Visa stamped.

We chose the 2 night/3 day cruise with Era Cruises. Every aspect of the trip was outstanding beginning with excellent & regular email communication from Judy who organised everything for us & kept us updated. The transfers to & from our Hotel in Hanoi were in a luxurious mini van. Our cabin & ensuite were spacious, well appointed & very grand – jacuzzi with a view & even a heated toilet with a remote control ha! We were astounded by our private sundeck at the front of the boat, providing us with the most incredible view. We would of happily sat out there for the entire time. All of the staff were friendly & helpful & went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our trip. They would bring food & drinks to our room when we didn’t want to leave our view. The cruise Manager Joy was welcoming, professional & efficient. Food was excellent, as were the happy hour cocktails. We visited parts of Halong Bay that were much more quiet than those utilised by other cruises. Would definitely recommend Era Cruises. It was an unforgettable trip.

This was a fantastic cruise in a beautiful area. The cabins are very spacious and luxurious and we particularly enjoyed the jacuzzi. The food is first rate and there is a wide selection from a buffet. We enjoyed activities such as kayaking to a beach on an island. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and knew the guests by name. As a gay couple we were made to feel welcome. Crucially, all guests were treated equally regardless of nationality and race. We highlight this because it is not uncommon in many countries where service providers show explicit favouritism towards westerners. Era Cruise, however, was not one of those.

One of the highlights of our time in Vietnam. Our two night cruise on the Era 1 boat was magical. The boat itself was stunning … Modern luxury throughout with extremely spacious cabins including a beautiful private bathroom. From the moment we arrived cruise staff – particularly Jimmy and River – went above and beyond to ensure we had a fabulous time. The staff on the day boat – led by David – were equally as accommodating and friendly. All food and drinks were delicious and the scenery unrivalled. The birthday package was a delightful addition to the excitement. The two day cruise is a must in my opinion as the fun on the day boat really added to our overall experience. Thank you again Era Cruises

We had a fantastic cruise holiday abroad Era Cruise 2 ship in Lan Ha Bay.

This is a better bay that the famous Ha Long Bay simply as there are less number of boats. We thoroughly enjoyed the Sunrise and Sunset aboard the vessel.

The day we sailed the vessel had 23 pax and 32 crew members on board, who really looked after us.

The food and drinks were tasty and really very good. Out of 6 of us, 4 were strict vegetarians, but they too had a great time. The crew really took care that they arranged vegetarian meals for them. Mango Salad was the huighlight of the food and kudos to the Chef.

The rooms were luxurious and the bed was comfortable.

I would particularly like to mention Mr Nyuyen Van Hung (Dom), who was leading his team from the front. Mr Dom is a really nice and humorous guy and really an asset to Era Cruise Team. So are Jimmy and Lucky.

I would like to wish Mr Le Duc Tan continued success in this and future ventures and would definitely recommend this cruise to people visiting Hanoi.

My partner and I did the 2 night 3 day cruise, and I’d highly recommend you stay for the 2 nights as otherwise you miss out on the trip to the village and bike ride.

The Manager Thahn and Ms River were fantastic. Thahn greeted us by name from the moment we met, both had a laugh and joke with us also. All the staff are super friendly! I wish I could remember all the names. Service was amazing.

The rooms are fantastic. We chose the king terrace suite , the pictures you see on the website are what you get not like some hotels you visit!

Beautiful ship, delicious food and plenty of it.
Kayaking , swimming and trip to village are all fun and well organised.
