The Heritage Line made waves in Lan Ha Bay and Halong Bay this month with the re-launching of its once famous cruise, the gracious Ginger in June 2018. The cruise is based in Lan Ha Bay, a very tranquil part in the south of the famous Halong Bay in Vietnam. Before coming to the new quiet area, the former Ginger was a glorious luxury star in Halong Bay when most cruises were at lower standards.
Ginger hosts only 12 large suites, all smartly facilitated with luxurious amenities and with well-sized balcony. Its three categories start from six Junior Suites that come with 37sq.m (398sq.ft) floor space including private balcony on the main deck, and each bathroom is fitted with a walk-in shower and bathtub overlooking the bay. On the upper deck locates its four Signature Suites, all featuring warm yellow and antique gold flower theme with intricate décor.
The most luxurious options to voyage aboard the Ginger are the two Regent Suites, Blue Phoenix and White Crane. Each of the cabin boast 50sq.m (538sq.ft) of floor space with large balcony and Jacuzzi bathroom offering great vistas of Lan Ha Bay. Beside dedicated to the mythical birds of Vietnam’s rich repertoire of fables, the interior design features hand-made lacquer panels over the bed, gleaming gold leaf ceilings and artistic decoration.
Best of the cruise is a nice pool on the terrace deck, the exclusive facility in the bay. Surrounded by comfortable shaded sunbeds, the magnificent views to the limestone formations and emerald waters of Lan Ha Bay from the pool are spectacular. The launching of Ginger in Lan Ha Bay brings luxury travel Vietnam and Halong archipelago a new breath of deluxe accommodations, giving travelers more options to explore this world famous bay in style.
When planning Vietnam holidays, most travelers first don’t realize that Halong Bay is actually the center of a larger limestone karst zone, which includes Bai Tu Long Bay to the northeast and Lan Ha Bay to the southwest. Recently, Halong and Bai Tu Long Bays are getting more crowded with tourist boats of all kinds, the Lan Ha becomes a great alternative with much quieter cruising routes, more sandy-beaches, and an abundant of deserted lagoons.
Named “Hidden Words”, Ginger’s cruising itineraries are crafted for one-night stay in Lan Ha Bay. The voyage offers superbly balanced on-shore and off-shore experiences including relaxed cycling on Cat Ba, the largest island in the bay.
