THE AU CO CRUISES HA LONG BAY

In the Gulf of Tonkin, we’ve found the ‘location, location, location’. But aboard The Au Co itself, we’ve created 'space, space, and more space'. The ship is a remarkable 55.29m in length and 10.43m in width. Each of our 32 spacious cabins has its own private balcony or terrace - allowing unparalleled private views of the surrounding seascape. On the upper decks, our elegant restaurant and open-air bars are designed along principles of Feng Shui (or in Vietnamese ‘Phong Thuy’) to heighten our passengers’ sense of connection with the wonderful environment of the surrounding Gulf of Tonkin, as well as giving them a taste of the Orient and Vietnamese culture. 
Through our innovative use of space, design features, and luxurious attention to detail, we aim to give our passengers a truly unique cruise experience.
