Au Co Cruise – Cruise For Top Quality 2021

The Au Co Cruise sets a new standard in quality, comfort and safety for those considering a cruise on Halong Bay. With its impressive steel hull and 32 deluxe cabins, the Au Co cruise offers customers a sense of refinement and luxury that cannot be found in other vessels on Halong Bay. Most cabins and suites on Au Co cruise provide extra space and comfort with private balconies. The cruise stands out not only for its elegant guest rooms and beautiful design but also for its unique cruising routes. You will certainly bring back unforgettable memories and experiences from your tour.
In early 2020, the twin Au Co ships received a comprehensive renovation, lending a beautiful contemporary feel to the ancient Vietnamese legend from which the ships are inspired. Returning guests will enjoy the same sophisticated ambiance aboard the Au Co Cruise with several delightful upgrades. Updated cabins feature a modern Asian flair, subtly incorporating design elements telling the love story of Princess Au Co and her Dragon Lord of the Sea.
