Heritage Cruise


Inspired by the legacy of ship king Bach Thai Buoi, who successfully launched the Binh Chuan ship in Hai Phong exactly 100 years ago, Heritage Cruises brings history to life by honoring his memory and showcasing the culture, art, and people of Northern Vietnam. Cruising amidst natural wonders, the ship features 20 air-conditioned suites spread across three decks. Each suite includes an en-suite bathroom, panoramic windows, a sitting area, and expansive ocean views from an oversized terrace with a day bed.

The standards on Heritage Cruises are exceptionally high, ensuring that every suite offers a stellar level of luxury and service, including 24-hour room service. The suites are bright, spacious, and inviting, with sumptuous bedding that can be arranged as twin or double beds. Floor-to-ceiling windows face the ocean, and each suite features double closets, drawers, a safe, an iPhone docking station, a bathroom with a bathtub and a separate walk-in rain shower, a professional hairdryer, and all-organic hair and bath amenities.
