Starlight Cruise


After a meticulous period in the shipbuilding workshop, Starlight Cruise Halong was finally launched into service in July 2013, marking the realization of the dreams of these two cruise enthusiasts. Since that day, international and Vietnamese travelers alike have had another opulent option for experiencing luxury on Halong Bay. Through continuous development, Starlight Cruise has established itself as a sought-after luxury brand for those seeking a sumptuous odyssey.

Our foremost priority in designing our cruise on Halong Bay has always been to enhance the enjoyment, convenience, and comfort of our guests. The ship's 32 spacious staterooms are exquisitely decorated and equipped with all the amenities of a fine hotel. Each stateroom features a large bed, a cozy sitting area, individually controlled air-conditioning, a mini-bar, a safety deposit box, an in-house telephone, a bathroom with shower, bathrobe, slippers, hairdryer, and in-house television.
