Ginger Cruise boasts a stunning Indochinese-Vietnamese heritage theme paired with refined contemporary accents. The style interlaces long-lasting traditions of major regional elements which are displayed in the rooms and play key roles in Vietnamese sagas and poems, including landscape, botany and mythological birds. Ginger has only 12 spacious, natural light- flooded suites - all with wide panorama sliding glass doors opening onto a private balcony. The vessel’s true uniqueness is her refined culinary attitude combined with a refreshing life-style component. Its terrace deck is a remarkable public area hosting an almost 360-degree light- flooded restaurant where live cooking is performed. Another exclusive facility is the adjacent pool, encircled by shaded cabanas and sun beds. Located in the stern of the ship, offering wonderful views of the bay through vitreous floor to ceiling frames, the spa area adds another state-of-the-art facility.

Step aboard Ginger, your home while you explore one of nature’s wonders, Lan Ha Bay. The private atmosphere on board makes it feel almost like you have the whole vessel to your-self. Enjoy the vast space and homey feeling in your room, or head out to the pool deck and take in the blue hour with a sun-downer after some cycling around the jungle-like Cat Ba Island. You can also learn more about local cuisine and customs by joining a cooking class to find out how to strip down a fresh squid – be careful with the ink! But maybe nothing is more enjoyable on Ginger than balcony breakfast in close togetherness with your partner while the boat slowly sails back to the harbor passing thousands of karsts and small islands.

Aboard Ginger, it is a matter of pride for us to present guests with very delicious cuisine. Made from fresh locally and internationally sourced ingredients, our Vietnamese and Western dishes will have guests eagerly coming back for seconds when we dish up our chef’s live cooked plates. Breakfasts can either be taken in the restaurant or at the AL-fresco area on the sun deck. The open live cooking area in the restaurant adds a defined culinary themed experience on board Ginger.

Please note that the cruise will be under the annual maintenance during the following period: 23 - 25 Apr 2019 and 1 - 15 Sep 2019.

  • 2 Days 1 Night
  1. Day 1: Hanoi – Cat Hai Island – Lan Ha Bay.

    Hidden Worlds: Two days - One night

    A new cruise on the tranquil waters of Lan Ha Bay offering a voyage of harmony and peace coupled with active components like cycling on Cat Ba Island and a delightful culinary & lifestyle medley.

    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. Start your unique journey of exploring one of the new wonders of nature – Lan Ha Bay. Enjoy lunch in Ginger’s light-flooded dining room offering panoramic views of the passing scenery.

    Along the cruise you can see an ancient lighthouse, built by the French over 100 years ago. 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 onboard activities. Take a plunge in the pool or let us pamper you with a selection of fine treatments and massages in the large Lady Ginger spa.

    Reach the landing spot of Viet Hai Village on Cat Ba Island where you 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, Ginger's 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. The cruise arrives 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 favorite 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.

  2. Day 2: Lan Ha Bay - Hanoi.

    Wake up early and join our Tai Chi session on the sun deck to ease mind and muscles with the first rays of the sun touching the water. Coffee, tea and breakfast pastries await you in the dining room to start the new day.

    Ginger anchors up and cruises to Frog Lake, a secluded spot which is perfect for your morning excursion. In kayaks or swimming you will enjoy a close encounter and discovery of the bay. Paddling through the dreamlike landscape with tree-topped islands, you will feel a sense of freedom and harmony with nature that you have never experienced before.

    Back on board a hearty breakfast is served in the dining room as you cruise back to the pier.

    Savor the last cruise moments of this unique journey relaxing on comfy sun beds on the terrace deck. Farewell the crews at 11:00 A.M at Got Pier. We hope you enjoyed cruising with Ginger Cruise in the Hidden World of Lan Ha Bay.
