Overview

As a leading luxurious Halong Bay cruise with years of experience in Luxury Travel Group, Heritage Cruise was constructed to redefine Vietnamese cruising.

You will experience Vietnamese culture in a boutique concept of intimacy and personalized service. Every detail has a story to tell, from architecture, cuisine, art pieces, designer uniforms, music, beverages and much more.

2 restaurants can be privatized even during regular cruising days, as well as spaces where you can gather without disturbing other guests nor being disturbed. Wine Cellar and Lounges are where couples can retreat for special occasions (Honeymoon, Anniversaries, Proposals).

Singular, unique art everywhere! Guests have the chance to experience some of Vietnam’s most impressive pieces of fine art – even in their rooms.

Most importantly, Heritage Cruise offers a wide and unique cruising route to the most off-the-beaten-track places. Away from the Halong crowds, the Cat Ba region is still less visited and equally beautiful. Besides, Hai Phong is closer – meaning you can spend more time on tours, and less time on road. Heritage Cruises boasts strongest and fastest engines in Halong, allowing you to reach further and into more secluded destinations.

A wonderful day and night in Lan Ha Bay

We were only able to spend one day and one night in the bay but had a most wonderful time there. Heritage Cruise is something else! 20 cabins, windows stretching floor to ceiling. Exceptional quality and service, don’t think twice and book straight away!

Perfect trip

Perfect trip for me, my wife and our children. Food was very good and the rocky towers around us were really amazing. I had no idea the whole area was so big and so diverse, with so many interesting shapes of islands. I will definitely recommend Heritage Cruise to all my friends and to you!

Maginificient boat, wonderful itinerary

The ship is a piece of art on its own, so well crafted and decorated, but you get to enjoy it while cruising in a splendid bay! Couldn’t ask for more for my family, we were all smiles all the time – as were the staff! Kind, polite, helpful, professional. The ship does a nice loop in the bay and you get to see and experience many stunning views, beaches and islands. We loved it!

Impressive stuff

Heritage Cruise is rather stunningly beautiful, and what you get to see from her deck is even more impressive. Meanwhile, the crew will make you feel like a king or a queen. I was a bit disappointed with the weather, but that’s hardly anyone’s fault. Will come back one day and do it again!
