“ A sister of Oasis Bay Party Cruise, Oasis Bay Classic Cruise is proudly among the biggest wooden boats on Halong Bay since its operation in 2015. This ship combines advanced technology with Eastern essence and brings a more tranquil ambiance to passengers than its fellow. Besides chock-full with up-to-date features, Oasis Bay Classic Cruise is an attractive option for guests who don’t want to be bothered by the crowd and love to explore the best destinations on Halong Bay.”

Editor Reviews

Pros

+ Pick-up and drop-off service is on time and handled very professionally.
+ Oasis Bay Classic Cruise is a tastefully-designed old boat that carries a more Vietnamese feeling.
+ Cruise cabins are clean and have a beautiful glassy wall with views over the bay.

Cons

- Passengers have to wait for a long time in the port under the heat for transfer back to Hanoi on the last day.
- The bigger hot tubs are dirty and need cleaning.
- The food comes in the set menu and it is quite cold and flavorless.

Bottom Line

This traditional wooden junk is a better choice for adults and families with children with enrichment programs and less-demanding itinerary.
