Ginger Cruises, Northern Vietnam

bushbaby rating

Beautifully designed, with an elegant 1920’s Indochina-Vietnamese theme, the Ginger Cruises are small, intimate and sail from La Ha Bay, a unique departure point away from the tourist crowds of Halong. Find a spot by the pool set high up on the teak deck and enjoy the extraordinary views on this secret gem.

  • rooms

    There are just 12 suites on board, elegantly decorated and all enjoy large panoramic windows and good-sized balconies.

  • facilities & activities

    Every detail of your stay is taken care of, starting with your arrival by speedboat to enjoy a welcoming lunch (freshly prepared in front of you in the open kitchen on board) while you slowly cruise out into the bay enjoying the panoramic views. Head up to the terraced deck to enjoy the open-air pool, relax on your private balcony or relax in the spa until arrival at the island of Cat Ba. Enjoy kayaking, swimming or even a light cycle to Viet Hai Village; the locals here are isolated from the mainland and make their living entirely from the land. Meet the villagers, learn about their unique lifestyle and try some of their homemade liquors before returning to the ship. The evening brings an interactive dinner experience. Learn about local ingredients and how to prepare some classic Vietnamese dishes before a cocktail under the stars, a movie at the cinema or try a spot of squid fishing with the staff.

  • dining

    Surrounded by glass and panoramic views, the live cooking zone serves up local fare with a flourish, while the adjacent bar provides a perfect spot for a sun-downer and to enjoy the views. A welcome cocktail and all meals are included in the package.

  • family

    Additional beds can be added to cabins and adjacent cabins can be requested.

  • location

    Lan Ha Bay is found in the Gulf of Tonkin, further south than Halong itself and is still relatively undiscovered. Departing from here offers a calmer, more pristine experience of this beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site, far from the tourist crowds and large cruise ships. Check-in is easy at its dedicated lounge at Tuan Chau Marina and from here it a 5-minute speedboat ride to your luxurious floating home.
