Gray Line Family Cruise

Description

By the autumn of 2018, the Gray Line Halong has expanded to several vessels, each featured by specific characters and comfort. To match the needs of family trips, Gray Line Family Cruise is a small boat with a few cabins to minimize the number of guests is compulsory, where the team can provide most deluxe services in the most friendly and personalized ambience.

Gray Line Family Cruise with three en suite cabins, maximum eight clients (i.e. five, six adults and two kids, or less!), the three-cabin Gray Line Family Cruise focuses on providing topmost customized services and privacy to small families, honeymoon couples, or just a group of close friends.

The small cruise has two decks, with comfortable cabins, restaurant, very delicious foods, and a wide deck for sunbath. Minimalism is the main idea of the designers, so that the guests don’t need to spend much “deluxe” price for a Deluxe holiday.
With a small number of guests, the crew hopes to provide each person with the most indulgent leisure time, when privacy and flexibility mean treasure. You can request a route of your own, avoiding all crowded venues, or just demand the crew to anchor anywhere and relax with swim time or sunbath.
