In 1910 a paddle steamer called the Emeraude was offering unforgettable cruises in Halong Bay for visitor to what was then French Indochina. The Emeraude was part of a flotilla owned by the Roque family who had left Bordeaux in 1858 in search of adventure and fortune. Over a period of more than 50 years they found both. After several ups and downs including successful trading and timber businesses, near bankruptcy and being taken hostage by pirates, the Roque brothers built Emeraude, Perle, Saphir, Rubis and Onyx to ferry passengers and freight along the waterways of Indochina and cruise on magnificent Halong Bay.
The Emeraude offers a regular one night 2 days cruise & charter service on board a luxurious replica steamer with 37 cabins meticulously designed to evoke the nostalgic charm of colonial Indochina . A chance to experience timeless elegance and nostalgia of a by-gone era on board Halong’s finest.
