Our La Vela Classic was modeled on the early Art Deco Indochinese design popular in the early 20th Century. After recent renovation, Paradise is proud to present a brand new concept to La Vela Classic with a fusion design, combining modern interior with typical décor of Vietnamese northern uplands. For example, the cabin walls covered with brocade of ethnic people from Sapa bring a very authentic touch to the interior design of the boat. 24 expertly crafted cabins, including Deluxe rooms and Suite, are arranged over two decks, leaving the upper deck for the elegant dining room, above which is the stylishly furnished sundeck.

La Vela Classic offers an optimum cruising route that takes you to the main highlights and most scenic parts of Halong Bay.

Kayaking and swimming is a focal point, and we hunt out the most beautiful areas for an unforgettable dip in the emerald green waters and splendid kayaking routes to make your own way through the Bay.

Offering afternoon cooking classes, guests will have a chance to learn more about Vietnamese culinary art and self prepare some signature Vietnamese dishes right on the cruise sundeck under the instruction of our expert chefs.

A wide range of exciting onboard activities are also included: early morning Tai Chi, kite – flying for children, squid fishing, spa services & beauty treatment.

Providing the utmost in safety is a primary concern, and the cruise ship is fitted with modern navigation and safety apparatus, while the cabins have fire extinguishers, alarm systems and life jackets.
