Emperor Cruises (www.emperorcruises.com) starts day cruises with overnight trips to come.
Emperor Cruises has launched the first five-star all-inclusive cruise on Nha Trang Bay and plans to begin overnight cruises on the bay by the end of the year, with eight all-inclusive suites, butlers on board, and limousine services to and from the port, followed by 18 suites next year.
“Emperor Cruises (www.emperorcruises.com ) plans to bring tourists to the bay to gaze at the sunset, sip on cocktails, and enjoy romantic dinners while cruising on one of the 29 most beautiful bays in the world,” said Ms. Thanh Huong from Emperor Cruises. “The first cruise was a success and marks an important milestone not only for the company but also for Nha Trang’s tourism industry.” Guests can also enjoy a set seafood dinner with unlimited wine and romantic music, while taking in the stunning views of Nha Trang Bay.
The cruise was inspired by the luxurious life of Emperor Bao Dai, Vietnam’s last. He often chose to spend his leisure time in Nha Trang, going fishing on a beautiful dragon boat that was fully equipped and operated by experienced members of the Vietnamese Naval Corps who were knowledgeable about where the best bays in the area could be found.
“We spent a lot of time, effort and dedication to bring a tourism product to Nha Trang that’s classy and different,” co-founder of Emperor Cruises, Mr. Pham Ha, said proudly. “We carefully planned and utilized the lounge area, which was inspired by the living space of Emperor Bao Dai, from the paintings on the wall and the furniture to the background music.”
It takes 40 minutes along the coastal road from Cam Ranh International Airport to reach downtown Nha Trang and another 15 minutes to reach the port, where your Emperor Cruise begins. Destinations on its Day Cruises include a visit to Hon Mieu, snorkeling and diving at Hon Mun, cruising around Hon Mot and Hon Tam, and dropping in at Dam Bay for lunch, before continuing on to Tru Beach for trekking, beach activities, and kayaking. The cruise ends with views of the Bao Dai villas, which is nestled on a small headland near the city.
