Vietnam – Maiden Voyage Aboard Ginger Junk Cruise, Northern Vietnam
Ginger’s maiden voyage is scheduled for 01 June 2018 and the vessel will cruise a 2 days – 1 night program on a daily departures.
This new vessel will be bringing the guests and discover the unique destination of Lan Ha Bay. The ship will be docked in Cat Hai, which is a small island close to Hai Phong (an approx. 1,5 hrs drive from Hanoi).
Ginger comes with true uniqueness and a fascinating on-board cruise experience. The appearance and design of the boat itself is particular. Ginger boasts a stunning Vietnamese- Indochinese heritage theme paired with some refined contemporary accents. The style interlaces long-lasting traditions of regional elements which are displayed in the rooms and play key roles in Vietnamese sagas and poems, including landscape, botany and mythological birds.
Ginger is completely newly built. The outer look of the ship is impressive, but inside Ginger has probably made it to one of the most distinguished boats in this area. Ginger is the first vessel with a pool on its terrace deck. The almost entirely glass-surrounded restaurant offers panoramic views all day long and the absolute highlight is the open kitchen, in which live cooking is performed. Room sizes start from 37 sqm up to 50 sqm. All amenities provide true comfort in the cabins for a pleasurable stay.
On-board is Ginger’s lavish “Lady Ginger Spa” and has three large treatment rooms, one even includes a steam bath.
Ginger’s home will be Lan Ha Bay, cruising on a 2 days/1 night “Hidden Worlds” program to the island of Cat Ba.
The cruise departs around noontime for a relaxing approximate four-hour journey through a seascape of myriads of islands and islets.
First stop is Cat Ba, the largest island in the bay that hides a petite, traditional village in midst of jungle-clad mountains.
From the pier our guests will cycle along a scenic road through the untouched, rolling hills of Cat Ba to visit a local village. A leisurely ride on small paved roads offering a distinct experience.
During the voyage guest will experience a perfect balance of relaxed cruising time highlighted with marvelous excursions and activities: a Cat Ba cycling tour, an interactive cooking class, evening fun with squid fishing or an evening cinema, kayaking and swimming in tranquil parts of the bay.
