Heritage Line Ylang Cruise


Heritage Line Ylang Cruise, the latest member of Heritage Line’s ship collection in Lan Ha Bay, features a splendid blend of Asian-Vietnamese design with French-Colonial accents. This ancient flair of Indochina emanates throughout the vessel with a delicate floral leitmotif inspired by local poetry and related to the four seasons of the year. Local artisans contributed to Ylang’s decoration with hand-crafted paintings and artwork using various materials and techniques. All suites are dedicated to a particular blossom which typically represents a season in Vietnam. All this creates an inimitable sense of bliss and an exceptional abode at sea.

Ylang has only ten spacious suites on two decks – each room is flooded with natural light pouring in through floor-to-ceiling panoramic doors that open onto a private balcony. What makes Ylang unique, is its expansive spa with its extensive selection of thoughtfully selected treatments. The focus on wellness lives on in the more dynamic activities such as yoga in a dedicated room, or early morning Tai Chi lessons on the upper deck.

Dedicated to well-being and serenity, Ylang offers you deep insights into Lan Ha Bay’s natural beauty all while providing a holistic wellness experience.

  • 3 Days 2 Nights
  1. Day 1: Hanoi - Halong Bay

    Leave Hanoi at 9:00 AM if you opt for a private transfer or between 8:30 AM and 9:00 AM for the shuttle bus, arriving at Tuan Chau Marina around 11:30 AM (transportation service upon your request).
    11:45: Embark on a captivating journey through Halong Bay as you acquaint yourself with the amenities aboard the vessel. Take in the breathtaking scenery from the sun deck as we begin the cruise.
    14:00: Your first stop is Cua Van, one of the floating fishing villages in Halong Bay where some fishermen still carry out their traditional fishing and aquacultural activities. Glide through this peaceful area in a small bamboo boat rowed by locals, gaining insight into the village life and the once-thriving communities that lived on these waters. For those seeking a more active experience, complimentary kayaks are available for a personal exploration around the floating hamlet.
    15:30: Transfer by tender to Tien Ong Cave, which offers fascinating insights into the geological history of Halong Bay dating back to 10,000 – 8,000 BC.
    17:00: Returning to the ship, sail to the overnight mooring area, where the tranquil "blue hour" reveals the magical beauty of Halong Bay. Relax on the sun deck with your favorite drink, soaking in the serene atmosphere. Participate in a cooking class with the chef to learn classic Vietnamese recipes that will surely impress your family and friends when you recreate them at home.
    19:00: As evening falls, indulge in a multi-course à la carte dinner.
    20:30: For those interested, join the onboard presentation about the unique features and secrets of the bay. Alternatively, try your hand at squid fishing with the staff for a delightful and entertaining experience. Spend the rest of the evening marveling at the enchanting landscapes of Halong Bay, where legend has it that sparkling jewels once cascaded from a heavenly dragon.

  2. Day 2: Halong Bay Cruise

    06:00: Awaken to the gentle waves and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee, complemented by pastries in the dining room.
    06:30: Engage in the morning Tai Chi class on the sun deck for a harmonious start amid the scenic surroundings.
    07:30: Embark on an excursion aboard your day boat to explore the unique wonders of Halong Bay.
    08:00: As you sail towards your first destination, the impressive Sung Sot Cave, indulge in a delicious breakfast served onboard.
    08:30: Spanning an expansive 10,000 square meters, Sung Sot Cave boasts two magnificent chambers. The outer chamber is adorned with stalactite chandeliers, while the inner chamber is aptly named the grand "opera house." Marvel at the pond, lush plant life, and stunning rock formations sculpted over millions of years.
    10:00: Return to the boat for some leisure time before venturing out to explore the marine landscape by kayak.
    11:00: Glide through the emerald waters amidst towering cliffs and verdant islets, reveling in the sense of freedom and tranquility.
    12:30: Continue your journey to a floating pearl farm, where you'll gain insight into the intricate process of cultivating, harvesting, and processing pearls. Witness skilled technicians delicately implanting seeds into oysters, with the promise of beautiful gemstones after several years of nurturing.
    14:00: Sail back to the mothership and return to your suite, where you can choose to bask in the sun, indulge in a spa treatment, or simply savor the mesmerizing "blue hour" on the open deck.
    19:00: After dinner, seize the opportunity to join the crew for a lively squid fishing activity, or unwind on a lounger, soaking in the serene ambiance of Halong Bay before retiring for the night.

  3. Day 3: Halong Bay - Hanoi

    06:00: The dining room offers tea, coffee, and pastries for early risers, while a Tai Chi class on the sun deck awaits to invigorate your mind and muscles.
    07:00: Begin the journey towards the small island named "Ti Top," previously known as Cat Nang. The island was renamed after former President Ho Chi Minh and Russian astronaut Gherman Titov toured Halong Bay together in 1962. Fascinated by the picturesque islet, Mr. Titov, the second man to orbit the Earth, inspired Uncle Ho to rename the island as a symbol of friendship between their two nations.
    07:30: Upon arrival at Ti Top, you have the option to take a refreshing morning swim at the sandy beach or, for those seeking activity, embark on a 400-step climb (approximately 20 minutes) to the island’s summit for breathtaking panoramic views of the bay.
    08:30: Upon returning to the ship, freshen up with a shower before enjoying breakfast as you sail back to the harbor.
    09:30: Relax on the sun deck and soak in the final moments of your journey while savoring the iconic views of Halong Bay.
    10:30: Disembark at the harbor, marking the end of your memorable cruise. Meet your driver for a transfer back to Hanoi or another destination if transportation arrangements have been made.
