About the project
Vietnam’s first five-star cruise in Nha Trang Bay - Fit for an Emperor.
One of the 29 most beautiful bays in the world, with miles of long, beautiful white-sand beaches and warm water, year-round green tropical islands and parks, rivers, typical fishing villages, special culinary characteristics and gorgeous seafood... Just some of the highlights of Nha Trang that appeal to seasoned holidaymakers.
Indeed Nha Trang Bay is a natural world of sparkling sea, marine life and islands waiting to be explored in style. Emperor Cruises combines oriental style with contemporary luxury. Together these create the perfect recipe for exploration, luxury adventures, enchantment, relaxation and memorable experiences.
The project will create jobs, boost the region’s economy and help to position Nha Trang Bay as one of the world’s luxury tourist destinations with smart international hotels and resorts such as the Intercontinental, Six Senses, Evason and Amano’i, and the Marriott and Hyatt coming soon to Long Beach.
Inspiration for Emperor Cruises came from the recreational activities of Emperor Bao Dai when he used to stay in his villas in Nha Trang. He took great pleasure in sailing in Nha Trang Bay to go fishing around the offshore islands. Almost a half century later, Emperor Cruises have recreated his vessel, using inspirational designs, and still fit for an emperor. The project was started in 2014 and the first sailing is expected to be in the summer of 2015.
The cruise fleet will accommodate up to 150 guests in five unique boats within five years in the initial stage and then the joint-venture company will develop a fleet of ten boats carrying from 300 to 500 passengers cruising the bay on a daily basis.
The project has chartered capital of VND250 billion and the project aims to promote Nha Trang and Vietnam as a luxury cruise destination.
