Cruise's cabin

Calypso Cruise designs were inspired by traditional Halong Bay boats. The main colour of the cruise was white, mixed with warm brown colours in the interior to give travellers a cosy atmosphere. Despite a simple and cosy look, the 20 suite cabins on Calypso are equipped with modern facilities such as a flatscreen TV, AC, an en-suite bathroom, and a panoramic window or balcony view of the bay.

Another strong point is that the cruise offers a seasonal jacuzzi pool, which you might only find on a luxurious cruise. The spacious pool stays on the top sundeck, with a stunning 360-degree view as the cruise sails through Halong.
