All cabins come with seating chair and private balcony.
Athena Cruise has been operating since mid-April 2017 to offer a one-of-a-kind journey to Halong Bay’s natural world heritage site. There are four cabin kinds spread over three decks: Executive Suites, Elegant Suites, Terrace Suites, and Family Suites.
Restaurants and sundecks are both spacious and well-equipped to ensure that every moment you’re onboard will enjoy. You can spend your free time reading books or watching the sunset from the top deck with a 360-degree view, or indulge in luxury spa service.
All Athena employees are well trained and always attempt to maintain their in-house customers happy throughout the journey.
