Experience every moment - With our slogan we promise a memorable experience and our staff are committed to ensuring that your clients enjoy every single moment on board, from the CEO through to the butler and limo driver. Emperor Cruises “Five-star Experience” represents our core value - delivering the highest standards of excellence from start to finish.
Cruising Expertise - You benefit from the expertise of the first luxury cruise operator in world-famous Halong Bay with over 20 years' experience in the cruise industry. Emperor Cruises handle all aspects of our on-board operation— nautical, hospitality, activities and culinary. On our luxury cruises there are only 16 passengers on board. Such small and boutique boats means they can slip into less visited and remotes places in the bay.
Royal Butler Service - Every detail is taken into consideration. “No request is too large, no detail too small” is the credo of the Emperor Cruises staff, who go above and beyond to create an extraordinary experience for our discerning guests.
Uniquely designed luxurious ships - Emperor Cruises’ one-of-a-kind, exquisitely appointed boutique cruise ships are each a work of art and as inspiring as the destinations they visit.
Culinary experience - Emperor Cruises has crafted a culinary treat for the most discerning of palettes to ensure every guests’ dining experience exceeds their expectations at the Can Chanh Restaurant. The cuisine is always freshly prepared, using the best local ingredients, with an emphasis on seafood. Each overnight trip includes a brunch breakfast, lunch and dinner. With every meal on board, guests are treated to a rich selection of complimentary local beers, spirits, and distinctive wines chosen by our acclaimed sommeliers. Barbecues and private dinners on the beach are available upon request.
Unique cruise itineraries with memorable experiences - We design cruise itineraries to show the best Bai Tu Long Bay has to offer. Guests can choose between kayaking, basket boating, snorkeling, hiking and trekking or can do absolutely nothing, just relaxing and enjoying the special facilities on board.
Truly all-inclusive cruising experience - Emperor Cruises is the first truly all-inclusive Vietnamese cruise, perfectly planned to create the ultimate, stress-free, luxury cruise experience in Halong Bay. We create the memories to last a lifetime.
The last Emperor Bao Dai had royal villas in Do Son, Vung Tau, Buon Me Thuot and Da Lat as well as palaces in Nha Trang and the Lak Lake region (Dak Lak). In particular, he enjoyed cruising leisurely, sea fishing off Nha Trang and freshwater fishing in Lak Lake, the largest freshwater lake in the Central Highlands.
As inspiration, we have named the six suites after the locations related to the opulent lifestyle of Emperor Bao Dai and his empire. And for each suite, including the King and Queen suites, features interesting stories from his life.
All 8 suites will be decorated in warm colors with leather headboards, plush sofas or chairs and drapes, new lighting features, window coverings, fancy carpeting, modern works of art, stylish bed cushions, and throw pillows inspired by original designs dating from the 1930s. Emperor Cruises are all-suite cruises with cabins measuring from 38 to 70 square metres, large enough to be able to add an extra bed. All the suites are spacious with their own private balcony affording spectacular ocean views. The bathrooms are uniquely designed and fit for royalty with a tub or a walk-in shower. The ocean can be viewed from any corner of the bathroom. A spacious sitting area provides room to stretch out and watch television, read a book or simply enjoy the sunset or awake each morning to see new vistas.
