Complimentary crêpes add French flair to Emeraude cruise through Ha Long Bay
In a fitting tribute to its French colonial history, Emeraude Classic Cruises is now offering guests complimentary crêpes on every journey through the splendors of Ha Long Bay.
Guests will enjoy this new interpretation of an old tradition on the sundeck of the paddle steamer every day from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. The Emeraude’s award-winning cuisine is displayed to best effect with this crêpe station, which will offer a selection of fillings inspired by European and Asian dishes.
The first Emeraude paddle steamer was built by a French family, the Roques, who were investors in Indochina in the late 19th century. The current near-replica, which comes complete with en suite bathrooms, air conditioning and classically appointed cabins, hearkens back to the days of French colonial adventures in Vietnam.
Crêpes, an enchanting afternoon treat reminiscent of the Emeraude’s origins, are a delightful addition to the variety of amenities Emeraude Classic Cruises offers its guests in ongoing efforts to add variety and flair to its renowned Ha Long Bay trips.
