Feel and live the destination, don’t just cruise through it. Heritage Expedition is a program particularly designed for those who love exploring and immersing themselves in local life, nature, culture, and adventure to discover the authenticity of the destination.

Venture off the beaten path, go kayaking, and visit floating fish farms and villages. Discover secluded beaches, lagoons, coves, and caves. The Heritage Expedition itinerary is the same itinerary as the 3day cruise program, but the extra day gives you the time to discover the Cat Ba Archipelago in depth. We include a day to explore Cat Ba Island, Trung Trang Cave, visit the local market and fishery factory, Beo seaport, and Lan Ha floating village in Lan Ha Bay.

Cruising is all about personal experiences. With this expedition cruise, we ensure your cruising experience is comfortable and special, with excellent food, friendly staff, an interesting itinerary with many optional activities, excellent service, and attention to detail, elegance, sophistication, and sense of adventure.

Heritage Cruises aims to offer each guest the opportunity to create their own memories with exquisite cuisine, 24 hour room service and fun activities. Dine whenever and wherever you wish, and choose from massage options.

This boutique cruise starts at Tuan Chau Marina in Halong city, reached from Hanoi by shuttle bus (optional). At noon, the boat’s team welcomes you aboard and checks you into your exclusive cabin. The first part of the cruise presents the wild beauty of Halong Bay and followed by Lan Ha Bay’s panoramas. A few minutes into the cruise guests are invited to taste Vietnamese dishes at the restaurant. This is just the beginning of four days packed full of highlights ensuring a memorable trip.

After this, guests have a range of options including massages, kayaking, or afternoon tea. In the evening a chef gives a cooking demonstration featuring traditional Vietnamese spring rolls. After an a la carte dinner, activities can include board games and squid fishing.

The second day is dedicated to leisure including meeting locals and visiting remote villages, hidden coves, and lagoons.
After breakfast on the third day, take the speedboat to the Gia Luan seaport to explore the largest island, Cat Ba. Visit the largest cave on the island, learn about the process for making the sauce at the Nuoc Mam (Fish Sauce) factory, a favorite with the Vietnamese, then board the speedboat to explore Lan Ha floating village and Lan Ha Bay.
The fourth day starts at sunrise with Vovinam, a Vietnamese martial arts session. It is followed by an exploration of Dark and Bright Cave, and there is enough time to take a swim or sunbathe on the beach. After checkout, brunch is served on board while cruising back to Tuan Chau Marina for your onward destination.
