Bhaya Cruise drydock schedule in 2017

To ensure our flawless safety and finest operation, annual drydock is compulsory for Bhaya Cruise's vessels. Periodically, the ships will go into drydock. It is once a year for wooden boats and once in every 2 years for steel ships. 

After hundreds of voyages taking guests to discover stunning Halong Bay, the ship will take a rest and be lifted out of the water. During drydock period, the cruise ships receive a routine maintenance including machine and also part of the ship that are under water line. 

Bhaya Drydock

The whole security system will be rechecked and enhancements will be provided where it’s needed. Drydock also consists of some cosmetic upgrades such as new carpet, new wall coverings...etc. Especially, the hull is cleaned of the marine plants then painted with anticorrosive and anti-fouling paints to assure a brand new look until next drydock period. 

When all the enhancements and check are finished, experts from industry and government will make an inspection. An permission will be issued to certify that the ship meets both security standards and requirements as a hospitality property. 

By thorough maintenance, we are proud and confident that our cruise fleet are always at the best condition for smooth Halong Bay discovery. To make sure you have a perfect cruise, Bhaya Cruise staffs and mechanics keep working hard under the dry dock as schedule every year.

Bhaya Classic

Launching its first cruise back in the summer of 2007, Bhaya Classic Cruises is a member of what is now Halong Bay's largest fleet of cruise boats. The 4 Bhaya Classic boats are constructed in a classic, oriental style, while incorporating modern facilities catering to every aspect of passenger comfort.

Each Bhaya Classic boat has between 15 and 20 cabins, the relatively small design creating informal, warm spaces promoting a convivial feel on board. A refurbishment programme carried out in August 2015 has given the boats a fresh new look.

The Bhaya Classic are wooden boats constructed in the traditional oriental style long favoured by shipbuilders in this area. The construction material and style of the boats give them a classic feel which sets them apart from most cruise vessels around the world. On board, you will find atmospheric spaces which speak of the heritage design, and the small boat concept encourages a cosy feel which makes a Bhaya Classic cruise a pleasantly social affair. The colour scheme on board is a fusion of the rich browns of hardwood, white, and turquoise blue trim with red highlights. The wooden furniture on board only heightens the sense of timeless elegance which seems a natural extension of Halong Bay itself.
