Every day, the Emeraude journeys through one of the world's most dazzling natural wonders and into the sepia realm of a dream. Named for a cruising vessel that plied these waters between 1906 and 1937, the Emeraude aspires to the magnificence of the bay itself.

Eric's Emeraude was built locally in Haiphong to international standards but very much in keeping with the original design. In December 2003, the namesake of the glorious old vessel set sail.
While the original was split between cargo and cruisers the new Emeraude is exclusively a leisure vessel. The paddle wheel at the back echoes the design of the original but isn't used for propulsion. Instead it opens up to provide a swimming deck for passengers.
From its launch and for most of the next ten years, the Emeruade cruised the bay under the able hand of a French captain who’d been guiding vessels on Vietnamese waters since the early 1970s. But all things must change, and the French captain gave way, in 2012, to the able hands of a captain who grew up on Halong Bay, Nguyen Van Quan.
Likewise, Eric Merlin’s story with the Emeraude came to a sort of close in 2014 when Openasia assumed ownership of the vessel. But the experience of cruising Halong Bay is not likely to change much, at least not on the Emeraude.
Kurt Walter, who has managed the Emeraude for the better part of 10 years, will continue to guide the Emeraude as an Openasia manager. He’ll cruise the bay waters once a week as he has year in and year out. He’ll see the vessel through its annual maintenance and dry docking. And he’ll ensure that the experience of a passage on the Emeraude today is as spectacular as it was on the day the vessel launched.
“A cruising vessel is very much like a story,” said Walter. “You have a beginning, a middle and an end. In the meantime, we are only now just starting a new chapter.”
On the Emeraude, buoyed by one of the world's most beautiful bays, little things matter. Colonial style brass fans. Hardwood floors. Beadboard walls. And the most comfortable beds on the bay. In every cabin, the rich decor evokes another age, when craftsmanship mattered more than the bottom line.
But make no mistake: The Emeraude makes concessions to the modern era, with air conditioning, electricity and other amenities typical of an upscale hotel room. No need to bring your own hair dryer. We've got that. Umbrellas, slippers, bathrobes. We've imagined all the contingencies so you'll be fully prepared to enjoy your cruise.
