The Emperor Cruises fleet (www.facebook.com/emperorcruises) includes a 32-passenger junk cruise boat for day cruises around Nha Trang Bay, starting February, and overnight trips will take place aboard a further five dedicated ships.
The newly built traditional imperial cruise vessel features 18 luxurious en-suite cabins with private balconies. The triple-decker contains a restaurant, two bars, a small library and four massage rooms.
The first five star cruise in one of the 29 most beautiful bays in the world, with miles of long, beautiful white-sand beaches and warm water, year-round green tropical islands and parks, rivers, typical fishing villages, special culinary characteristics and gorgeous seafood… Just some of the highlights of Nha Trang that appeal to seasoned holidaymakers.
Indeed Nha Trang Bay is a natural world of sparkling sea, marine life and islands waiting to be explored in style. Emperor Cruises combines oriental style with contemporary luxury. Together these create the perfect recipe for exploration, luxury adventures, enchantment, relaxation and memorable experiences.
The project will create jobs, boost the region’s economy and help to position Nha Trang Bay as one of the world’s luxury tourist destinations with smart international hotels and resorts such as the Intercontinental, Six Senses, Evason and Amanoi, and the Marriott and Hyatt coming soon on Long Beach.
According to the Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism in Khanh Hoa Province, in 2013, over 3 million domestic and foreign tourists enjoyed overnight stays and sightseeing in the beach resort of Nha Trang and the surrounding attractions in the province, an increase of 29% compared to 2012. Of these, nearly 712,000 were international tourist arrivals.
Nha Trang has been the top attraction for travelers for both domestic and international tourists for many years and is also popular with day visitors because of its delightful beach, considered the most beautiful beach in Vietnam, with deep blue sea and seemingly endless white sand.
Inspiration for Emperor Cruises came from the recreational activities of Emperor Bao Dai when he used to stay in his villas in Nha Trang. He took great pleasure in sailing in Nha Trang Bay to go fishing around the offshore islands. Almost a half century later, Emperor Cruises (www.emperorcruises.com) have recreated his vessel, using inspirational designs, and still fit for an emperor.
