RESPONSIBLE CRUISING

It’s all about attitude!

The tourism industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the world, generating revenue and creating jobs in many countries, and opening the world to new generations of travelers. However, the impact of tourism, particularly at popular destinations such as Halong Bay, is not exclusively positive.

Our aim is to create the better places for people to live in and better places for people to visit. Since the founding of our cruise company, we have had a clear vision of helping people to appreciate the unique beauty of Halong Bay and Nha Trang Bay with Emperor Cruises, and have firmly adhered to responsible practices on our cruises.

One of the most worrying effects of poor tourism practices is the impact on the environment. As a result, the principles of sustainable tourism and responsible cruising are drawing increasing attention around the world. We commit to moral and just practices throughout the organization, hire locally and try to improve local economic growth.

Within the travel industry, the cruise industry is particularly reliant on an undisturbed natural environment to create memorable experiences. Protecting natural resources and making cruise operations within the marine environment truly sustainable are vital survival points for the industry.

We deeply understand this point and turn it into daily action for life underwater and on land. We never pollute our oceans and rivers, and our team collects rubbish when boating and kayaking, along with tidying the beaches and islands that we visit on excursions.

Our Emperor Cruises fleet policies apply sustainable practices and operate modern sewage treatment and waste management systems, as well as making efforts to address water pollution issues.

Especially, all solid waste on our boats is classified and transferred to waste stations on land for treatment. All processes are strictly compliant with the relevant standards of the local authorities.

Moreover, we believe the concept of “Sustainable Tourism” includes creating “Green” daily routines and giving back to the community. We have set up a number of partnerships to achieve our responsible development goals, by working with NGO’s to protect the environment, national parks, and wildlife. Furthermore, we clean the trails, islands, and beaches where we operate kayaking and swimming. We actively work hard to deal with climate change, improve clean water and sanitation, poverty reduction, gender equality, and education.

We are building a better life for our team on the cruises day by day. Our team and crew members do their best to apply sustainable practices in all their daily routines, such as: limiting the use of plastic bags, avoiding unnecessary paper use, saving energy and conserving water.

We also create and run training courses that encourage local people to adopt environmentally sustainable practices in daily life, and encourage local businesses to give back to the community. We address sustainable travel through the “five P’s”: people, planet, prosperity, peace, and partnerships.

In brief

Our aim is to create the better place for people to live in and more beautiful places for people to visit.

  • Attitude: Responsible cruising is all about attitude, and the Emperor Cruise’s staff are passionately committed to socially responsible travel through education, and by reducing our carbon footprint.
  • Sustainable building materials: Built using sustainable materials, the structure of the cruise ship is designed to maximize natural light and airflow, and to reduce the need for air-conditioning.
  • Reduce, reuse, recycle is our responsible policy. We provide reusable water bottles and reuse your towels and linen.
  • Emperor Cruises operates sustainably, creates jobs, employs local people, promotes local culture and products and supports a project to protect marine life in Halong Bay.
  • Emperor Cruises cleans all trails used for trekking along with the islands and beaches on the 5th of every month so that guests can enjoy the pristine beaches and coves in our operating areas. We conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development through the sustainable management of tourism on and in the oceans.
  • Cruise with purpose: Cruise with us to create a better bay for people to live in and a better place for travelers to visit. We save fresh water and our planet. Organic waste is transferred to be recycled into biogas. With our responsible policies, we aim to keep the bay clean and healthy for future generations to enjoy!

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 Halong 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.

Luxury Cruises: Take a top luxury hotel, include gourmet food, superb wine, drinks and personal service, then add daily exploration and activities – this is a luxury cruise and now it is available in Halong Bay.

A luxury cruise is just what the name implies, but this is uber-luxurious, not just luxury but an exceptional cruising experience.

Only a handful of companies offer such exclusive cruising, the ultimate experience in a luxury ship exploring one of the 29 most beautiful bays in the world, Vietnam’s most visited destination, in style with sumptuously appointed staterooms and public areas and thoughtful personal butler service.

The ship oozes style both inside and out and travelers can admire artworks from famous artists in Vietnam. The ship is tastefully decorated with hand-made objets d’art made from gold, silver, bronze and jade.

But it is not all about the vessel; it is all about the experience. Our boat has its own distinctive character with a wealth of top-class facilities, butler service and 24-hour reception to provide a superlative experience, a memory which will stay with your clients for a lifetime.

A royal experience on the bay, highly recommend! A luxury cruise that offers an unforgettable experience of exploring the natural beauty and culture of Vietnam. The cruise has spacious and elegant cabins, a fine dining restaurant, a spa, a lounge, and a sundeck. The staff are friendly and attentive, and the activities are well-organized and diverse.
