History of Emeraude Cruise
In 1910 a paddle steamer called the
Emeraude was offering unforgettable cruises in Halong Bay for
visitors to what was then French Indochina. The Emeraude was
part of a flotilla owned by the Roque family who had left
Bordeaux in 1858 in search of adventure and fortune. Over a
period of more than 50 years they found both. After several ups
and downs including successful trading and timber businesses,
near bankruptcy and being taken hostage by pirates, the Roque
brothers built Emeraude, Perle, Saphir, Rubis and Onyx to ferry
passengers and freight along the waterways of Indochina and
cruise on magnificent Halong Bay.Today the Emeraude offers a
regular cruise service on board a luxurious replicasteamer with
39 cabins meticulously designed to evoke the nostalgic charm of
