Launched in December 2009 with 10 luxury cabins,
The Heritage cruise features spacious, well-appointed cabins and suites with
large ensuite marble bathrooms, a large sundeck with comfortable lounging
furniture and an elegant dining room and bar. We have designed and fitted our
boats to international standards while maintaining traditional Chinese Junk
styling, creating the perfect balance of modern comforts and nostalgic ambiance.
The Heritage cruise is a new boat with an ancient
history. A true traveler of his time, the Vietnamese Emperor Khai Dinh
(1885-1925) defied the custom of taking thousands of courtiers on a royal trip,
and took just twelve of his most trusted followers on a very exceptional trip to
Halong Bay. His ship was one of the best of the wonderful wooden junks that
sailed the waters of Halong Bay. Inspired by the romantic landscape of the
limestone karst islands rising in the middle of the waters, Khai Dinh
commissioned a poem in praised of the bay’s beauty to be carved on the cliff of
Dau Go Cave.
