Nostalgia Cruise

Halong Bay - Lan Ha Bay - Trung Trang Cave - Dark&Bright Cave

Setting foot on the nostalgic cruise ship, as the ship floats slowly on Lan Ha Bay and upstream to the nation’s heroic historical past, visitors will be immersed in the most unique architectural style of Vietnamese history during the Nguyen Dynasty. For the first time in Ha Long – Lan Ha Bay, the Nostalgia cruise ship appears extremely prominent as a miniature version of the nostalgic Hue Royal Palace, but no less high-class, and luxurious, blending with the most quintessential of nature to bring unique experiences to the heritage bay.

On this luxury cruise Halong Bay, guests can enjoy the most authentic traditional experience while traveling back to ancient times in our unique, special patterned, and limited suites.
