About Heritage Line Violet Cruise

A quintessential expedition ship at its core, Violet Cruise is notable for its small passenger count, luxurious accommodations, and impeccable services. More significantly, the balance between French-Indochina design and modern comfort makes this small vessel outstanding. Violet Cruise creates an ordinary itinerary that allows visitors to explore Halong Bay up close.

Pros

+ Heritage Line - Violet cruise is exclusive with beautifully designed suites and up-to-date in-room amenities.
+ Services are good and staff are friendly and helpful.

Cons

- The itinerary is a bit rushed. It would be better to have more time for swimming.
- Halong Bay is disappointedly touristy and dirty.

Bottom Line

This boutique boat offers small expedition groups the ultimate in laid-back luxury and comfort.

Itinerary & activities

Violet Cruise offers a well-researched sailing route to the most remarkable landmarks of the bay. You will take a pleasant bamboo boat to visit Cua Van floating village where houses a museum and various floating homes. A trip to Tien Ong Cave and Sung Sot Cave is appealing for beautiful stalagmites and stalactites. Also, learn the pearl growing process at the Halong Pearl Farm and swim in Titop Beach.

Resembling old-fashioned Asian junk, the 12-guest traditional boat features wooden floors and opulent furnishings. Being opened for years, the ship is not new, but you still enjoy a comfortable stay with subtle interior decoration and high-quality cabins.

Sustainable design and state-of-the-art amenities inside 6 staterooms bring you a relaxing and classy experience. All cabins are spacious and well-appointed with a 6sqm private balcony and a Jacuzzi.

Without hesitation, I recommend this cruise as a 100% must-experience journey. The suites were elegant and stunning in Indochina style. Activities and relaxation onboard were beyond amazing. However, what truly set this voyage apart was the exceptional crew. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Thank Violet cruise and the crew so much!

We’ve just back from the cruise last week! The culinary offerings were exceptional with a full range of seafood delights and a captivating spring roll crafting session. Regrettably, the one drawback was the pollution in the bay with pretty much plastic bottles and waste. Hope this situation will soon be improved.

The trip was well-rounded for a family cruise vacation on Halong Bay. We traveled in a group of four people, including two children aged 11 and 13. The journey was arranged appropriately and left an indelible mark on our memories. The crew encompassed everything well in a warm-hearted and helpful manner. Spa services provided us with a revitalizing experience while our kids also had their own places to play.

We embarked on Violet Cruise from the 10th to the 12th of June 2023, and the tour was exceptional, leaving us reluctant to part ways. The journey was well-researched to cover the best parts of Halong Bay with fun-filling activities. Really appreciate the ship and the crew. Hope to visit again!

The trip and adventures were awesome! I had a pleasant visit to the fishing village and the island. There were a lot of activities to do there and I especially enjoyed the marvelous cave. The food onboard was acceptable with adequate portions but I expected more options for European dishes because I could not get used to Asian-style food.

I and my family were thoroughly delighted by this overnight cruise. We booked it through visithalongbay.com and received a good rate. The culinary offerings were exceptional too, and we relished the short trips to the floating village, caves, and the pre-dinner light cooking demonstration. Undoubtedly, this is an experience to cherish and remember fondly.
