If you’re considering an far-flung adventure on the other side of the globe, Bhaya Cruises offers a unique way to spice up a vacation in Vietnam without having to break the bank. This small-ship cruise line blends Southeast Asian style with contemporary luxury on each of its ships that sail sleepy Halong Bay. The company just announced some remarkable summer specials aboard the 40-passenger Bhaya Classic ships, for a total savings of up to 50 percent off.
Onboard a Bhaya ship, passengers will encounter a boutique library, sundeck, lavish dining room, and massage and spa area. Off the ship, they can experience the quiet villages or partake in activities like snorkeling, kayaking, and swimming in the turquoise waters of the bay. A 2-day luxury cruise includes shore excursions; lunch, dinner, and brunch onboard; a welcome cocktail; sightseeing; insurance fees, and an overnight stay and buffet breakfast at the five-star Intercontinental Hanoi Westlake Hotel. Deluxe cabins start at $189, but must be purchased by July 31 for travel through September 30.
