Calypso Luxury Cruiser: Concept

Calypso - A legendary cruiser

The myth of Calypso has been inspirited into the Calypso Cruiser. “Glamour” and “Grandeur” are best to characterize Calypso. The cruiser features 12 luxury cabins, all finely equipped, and exposed to the widest view of the Bay; a restaurant features a feast for the senses; and a panoramic sundeck allowing different activities with the beauty of Halong Bay as backdrop.

The Cabins - confining fine bedding

Sized from 12.5sqm, all Calypso cabins are selectively equipped to confine fine bedding, and are well recognized with expansive windows to be exposed to the widest views of the bay. Acknowledging the views are constantly changing, the bathroom is also widely exposed to the views to ensure every moment of yours counts.

Dining - Featuring a feast for the senses

The Calypso restaurant offers freshly-caught delicious seafood and other specialities to celebrate the fullest enjoyment of your sail-away. Fine cuisine mingles with friendly staffs, calm water, X-breeze and stunning view of thousands of islets around for a truly unforgettable experience.

Sundeck - No better elsewhere

There’s properly no better else in the world, as the views from the Sundeck are breath-taking, panoramic and constant-changing. The Sundeck offers ideal space and atmosphere to enjoy sunbath, to socialize, to snap great pictures of Halong Bay, to sip a refreshing cocktail while gazing at the rock formations reflected in the crystal clear water of the bay, or just simply lazing as the sun starts to set.

Activities - Enriching the body and the soul

Swimming, snorkeling and kayaking in the crystal waters of Halong Bay are integral experience during your time with Calypso. Regular events like guest’s birthdays, honeymoon celebrations, Halloween, National days, Christmas, New Year and like such are well attended to ensure your fullest enjoyment and excitement during your valuable time onboard.
