Bai Tu Long bay
Launched in 2018
Royal by name, royal by nature. La Regina has made a name for itself in the northeast corner of Vietnam, where our 5-star cruises have been met with a fabulous reception. This is why we decided to launch La Regina Royal Cruise, a luxury cruise in Bai Tu Long Bay that sets a new standard of cruising amidst the limestone seascape at the heart of Vietnam’s beauty.
Our cruise takes a quieter route than the standard, showing passengers the tranquil beauty that the Halong Bay area still contains away from the tourist boats. Enjoy 5-star comforts as you relax on board, either at our sultry lounge, well-stocked bars, gorgeous restaurant or the regal comforts of your own cabin. All of our suites are dressed in an evocative dark chocolate tone and offer up the luxury of a thick mattress, flat-screen TV and a personal hot tub for that royal flourish you deserve.
08:00 - 08:30: Pick-up will be made at your hotel in Hanoi before we start the scenic drive across the Red River Delta to Halong city, where your luxury 2-day Bai Tu Long Bay tour starts on shimmering waters.
12:45: We arrive at Hon Gai Harbour and you can relax at La Regina lounge while the boat finishes the last of its preparations. We board La Regina Royal Cruise after this and you are free to discover your well-appointed surroundings.
13:15: A set menu lunch in the restaurant will get the cruise underway. Take in the views of soaring, forest-clad mountains and relax in their shadows on the sundeck.
15:30: Our first stop of the tour is to Vung Vieng fishing village, a commune of vibrant houses and a highly unique way of life. Passengers will have the option to kayak or ride a sampan boat steered by one of the residents, both of which provide a wonderful feeling of freedom as we discover how life in Vung Vieng works.
17:30 - 19:00: We return to the boat in time for happy hour at the bar and a cooking class on the sundeck. Follow our chef as they show us how to create Vietnamese spring rolls with a stunning sunset in the background.
