The gracious Ginger is our only current vessel cruising the Lan Ha Bay, which is a tranquil part of the famous Halong Bay in Vietnam. Ginger hosts only 12 large suites, all naturally light-flooded and with well-sized balcony. There will be two Regent Suites in the highest room category. Additional four Signature Suites and six Junior Suites complete the suite only vessel. Ginger expresses her elegance with warm timber floors, marble bathrooms and distinguished design themes that interlace the long-lasting traditions of Northern Vietnam paired with contemporary accents.
Ginger’s uniqueness is expressed with a special culinary theme as well as a refreshing lifestyle atmosphere. The terrace deck is a marvelous public area. An almost 360-degree light-flooded restaurant offering live cooking is framed by an outdoor alfresco area. An indoor bar corner invites to relax before or after dinner.
The most exclusive facility is Ginger’s pool on the terrace deck. Surrounded by comfortable shaded sunbeds, the views from the pool are spectacular. So are the views from the spa rooms in the stern of the ship – one VIP spa room comes with steam bath. Combine relaxing spa treatments with dramatic outlooks through floor to ceiling glass windows on the bay.
Arguably, one of the most noteworthy and visited sites in all of Vietnam, Ha Long Bay is located in Quang Ninh Province on the coast, about a three-hour drive east of Hanoi. The name Ha Long is derived from the ancient Vietnamese-Chinese, meaning “Descending Dragon.” It’s not hard to imagine the spiny serpent emerging from the waters when you first behold the vista of the Bay.
A more modern designation of Ha Long Bay’s core as “one of the natural wonders of the world” is a centre of a larger zone which includes Bai Tu Long Bay and Cat Ba Island and was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2000.
Ha Long Bay features thousands of limestone karsts (small gum-dropped shaped mountains) that have spawned countless caves and grottoes. Some of the caves have become tourist sites, while others are places to hold private functions. The caves are lit with coloured lights that illuminate the stalactites and stalagmites turning the interiors into fantasy landscapes.
Life on the Bay is mainly relegated to the two major islands – Tuan Chau and Cat Ba (which also is home to a National Park and quaint village). Some of the floating villages scattered throughout the Bay are being closed and the residents moved on land.
Signs of human habitation have gone back tens-of-thousands of years and the Bay also offers a diverse eco system aside from the limestone mounds. It is a place where people come to enjoy sailing, kayaking, fishing, climbing or biking amongst these karst jewels. There are a number of beautiful beaches and vista points scattered amongst the over 2,000 islets that comprise Ha Long Bay.
