“ Heritage Cruises is perhaps the most recognized name in Halong Bay which redefines the standard with spacious staterooms and grand style. This fleet of vessels offers an excellent array of onboard entertainment and state-of-the-art facilities. The cruise itinerary is ideal for young-at-heart travelers who want to avoid the touristic Halong Bay and discover more about Lan Ha Bay.”
