Details

Since its launch in 2007, Valentine Cruise has both met and exceeded international standards of service and quality. Setting the precedent for overnight cruises on the bay, Indochina Sails is widely acknowledged as the first and best choice for discerning travellers. Its six newly built vessels are built along the same lines as those that have been sailing the bay for hundreds of years, lending the cruise an atmosphere of time-honored tradition and a feel of authenticity. Instead of detracting from this, the modern touches of contemporary comfort and luxuries enhance this ambience, and together the dichotomies of tradition and contemporary styles forms the ultimate vessel for your journey through the World Heritage listed beauty of Halong bay.
