Emperor Cruise offers a completely new concept tour of Halong Bay, and has redefined the meaning of the word “lavish”. The cruise has been designed to be reminiscent of the high-flying 1930s, and particularly of the luxurious life of the Emperor Bao Dai.
The glamorous cruise ship is adorned with gold leaf, plush velvet, delicate silks, and sparkling gemstones; calling this a ‘luxury’ cruise doesn’t even begin to cover it. This boutique cruise has just 8 private cabins, each one equipped with its own balcony and large windows offering sweeping views of the passing scenery.
Guests may also avail of the private butler service offered on board. The dining experience is one the crew claims to be “fit for an emperor”, with daily offerings that cater to both local and international tastes. Each meal is prepared with the freshest local ingredients, with an emphasis placed on seafood.
The work of famous Vietnamese artists hang on the walls, the wine chosen by skilled sommeliers, and the private butler is ready and waiting around the clock. The lavish life onboard the Emperor Cruise is much more than just a Halong tour, it is a lesson in history, a dive into aristocratic culture; it’s an experience of a lifetime.
