V’Spirit Cruise


The word “V’Spirit” actually means “Vietnamese Spirit,” and the goal of V’Spirit Cruises is to immerse you in the essence of Vietnamese culture that is integral to daily life in Vietnam. To achieve this, the two newly built wooden junks are crafted in the time-honored traditional style, yet they feature contemporary, deluxe cabins and modern facilities. Each cabin is equipped with sea-view windows, private modern bathrooms, and access to a comfortable sundeck bar.

You can look forward to enjoying the traditional Vietnamese dishes prepared by skilled cooks, providing an authentic culinary experience. Additionally, the attentive staff is dedicated to helping you learn about both contemporary Vietnamese life and the country's rich ancient history, ensuring a comprehensive and enriching journey. Whether enjoying a gourmet meal, relaxing on the sundeck, or exploring the scenic beauty of the bays, every moment on V’Spirit Cruises promises to be both rewarding and enriching.
