Ambassador Cruises have launched a new day cruise in one of the world’s most stunning places, Vietnam’s Halong Bay.
Their new day cruise in UNESCO World Heritage site will be on the largest and most luxurious ship to ever take to Halong Bay’s waters.
The new ship features sundecks across two floors for 360-degree views of Halong Bay and the famous landscapes. There will also be two restaurants, two bars, an entertainment area for live music, a large open-air jacuzzi onboard the 45-cabin ship. Ambassador Cruise is the only Halong Bay cruise line to include an elevator system for any passengers with mobility issues.
The new cruise caters for up to 500 passengers, who will check in at Ambassador’s Check-In Lounge in Halong City at 9.45am.
The itinerary includes exploration of Sung Sot Cave, Ho Dong Tien Cave, Trong Cave, Me Cung Cave and Cua Van Floating Village. The cruise anchors off Titov Island whose scalable heights offer panoramic views of the bay (the five-metre glass bridge jutting from the vessel’s bow is the perfect spot for photographs.). The day cruise includes a buffet lunch plus afternoon tea served on the vessel’s sundeck. Guests will return to Halong International Cruise Port at 4:30pm.
Nguyen Cao Son, founder of Asia Premier Cruises Corporation, which owns Ambassador Cruise, said ‘The day cruise opens up Halong Bay in an exciting new way for many travellers, particularly those who can’t squeeze an overnight cruise into their schedule and yet now have the opportunity to experience this breathtakingly beautiful destination in style in a day’.
Ambassador Day Cruise II is priced from USD 112 per person (VND 2.625 million) including day cruise itinerary and program, round-trip shuttle bus transfer from and back to Hanoi, one luxury buffet lunch, onboard insurance, tax and service charges, sightseeing fees and afternoon tea on the sundeck.
Ambassador Cruise also offers overnight cruises on Halong Bay.
