Venture into the unknown, secluded waters of Lan Ha Bay to explore a landscape of limestone pillars and green islands against the emerald sea. Cruising aboard the luxury Ginger Cruise, you’ll spend a night on the bay and venture to islands and beaches while enjoying pampering services onboard.
This 2-day Vietnamese cruise takes you to glorious Lan Ha Bay, the more-secluded neighbour of Halong Bay. It features first-class accommodations aboard a luxury cruise ship, shared tours, and is an ideal add-on to a stay in Hanoi for visitors who’ve travelled to Halong Bay before and want to venture further afield.
Your trip to Vietnam explores Lan Ha Bay, which is every bit as dazzling as its neighbour, Halong Bay. Spend a night aboard the 5-star luxury cruise ship, Ginger Cruise, one of the newest vessels along the coastline. Stay in one of its 12 luxury suites bathed in natural light and gaze out upon the bay from your large balcony. Relax in the pool on the terrace deck, dine in the alfresco restaurant, and let your worries slip away in the Lady Ginger spa. Aboard the Ginger Cruise, you’ll sail amongst the 300 karst islands and drink in the gorgeous views. Spot the old French lighthouse and stop at Viet Hai Village on Cat Ba Island. Tour the island on bicycle and meet villagers. Back on board, join a cooking class in the restaurant and learn to whip up delicious Vietnamese cuisine. The next morning, join a Tai Chi session on the deck before enjoying a swim or paddleboard off a secluded beach on Frog Lake. You’ll then return to port and disembark, connecting to your next destination.

Hanoi to Lan Ha Bay
You will be transferred by road to Lan Ha Bay from Hanoi.
Your luxurious floating home sets sail around noontime. Enjoy a welcome drink upon boarding while being acquainted with the facilities on board during the welcome briefing. We start our unique journey of exploring one of the new wonders of nature - Lan Ha Bay. We enjoy lunch in Ginger's light-flooded dining room offering panoramic views of the passing scenery.
Along the cruise we can see an ancient lighthouse, built by the French over 100 years ago. We head deeper and further south into the maze of Lan Ha Bay. Lan Ha Bay is actually a part of Halong Bay which was just recently opened to the public. Relax on the sun deck and soak in the aura of the fascinating scenery that emanates from the surreal seascape. During this cruising time there is enough time to enjoy our onboard activities. Take a plunge in the pool or let us pamper you with a selection of fine treatments and massages in our large Lady Ginger spa.
We reach the landing spot of Viet Hai Village on Cat Ba Island where we hop on bikes (electric car available) for an active tour along small paved roads towards a village nestled in a valley. Meet and greet local inhabitants doing their daily work, see their homes and the village school.
Back on board, our chef is ready and prepared for an interactive cooking class in the open kitchen at the restaurant. Learn about local ingredients, preparation and cooking of particular dishes to imitate easily at home. We arrive at a tranquil anchor spot for the night. A hidden place to reminisce on the day's adventures and enjoy cocktails under the stars. Dinner is served in the dining room.
You may like to hang out at our bar after with a digestif or pay a visit to the evening cinema which is set up in the dining area. Kick back with your favourite drink in probably the most unusual cinema you have ever visited. Or - have some fun with our team joining them for squid fishing before retiring to your room.

The gracious Ginger will be Heritage Line's new vessel cruising the Lan Ha Bay, which is a tranquil part of the famous Halong Bay in Vietnam. Ginger hosts only 12 large suites, all naturally light-flooded and with well-sized balcony. There will be two Regent Suites in the highest room category. Additional four Signature Suites and six Junior Suites complete the suite only vessel. Ginger expresses her elegance with warm timber floors, marble bathrooms and distinguished design themes that interlace the long-lasting traditions of Northern Vietnam paired with contemporary accents.
Ginger's uniqueness is expressed with a special culinary theme as well as a refreshing lifestyle atmosphere. The terrace deck is a marvelous public area. An almost 360-degree light-flooded restaurant offering live cooking is framed by an outdoor alfresco area. An indoor bar corner invites to relax before or after dinner.
The most exclusive facility is Ginger's pool on the terrace deck. Surrounded by comfortable shaded sunbeds, the views from the pool are spectacular. So are the views from the spa rooms in the stern of the ship - one VIP spa room comes with steam bath. Combine relaxing spa treatments with dramatic outlooks through floor to ceiling glass windows on the bay.
