About us –  Apricot Cruise

Apricot  launched their first vessel in 2014. However, the foundations of the company were laid a few years ahead with the building of the bridge linking Tuan Chau Island to the main land and the ensuing possibility to bring passengers to a private pier, a service never yet offered by cruise companies of Halong bay.

In the meantime, in their constant effort to provide an ever-better quality of service and accommodate their guests in the utmost warmth and comfort, Golden Sun Cruise opened a luxurious Café and Lounge area a few meters away from their private marina.

Apricot Cruise  furthermore used all their artistry to revolutionize the world of three star Cruising late December 2014 when launching the Golden Sun Cruise, an utmost luxury vessel whose qualities go far beyond the most extravagant imaginations.

We have available two offices in both Hanoi  and Halong that always support you the best and fast.
