Nostalgia Cruise - Halong Bay Cruise Catalog

Nostalgia Cruise - a brand-new 5-star Halong Bay cruise, is sure to bring an experience of immersing in the most unique architectural style in Vietnamese history during the Nguyen Dynasty - the last dynasty of Vietnam.

Nostalgia Cruise is a ship that slowly floats on Lan Ha Bay and takes tourists upstream to the heroic historical past of the Vietnamese people. Setting foot on this ship, visitors will be immersed in the most unique architectural style in Vietnamese history during the Nguyen Dynasty. For the first time present in Ha Long - Lan Ha Bay, Nostalgia Cruise appears extremely prominent as a miniature version of the nostalgic Hue Royal Palace, but no less high-class, and luxurious, blending with the the most quintessential of nature to bring unique experiences to the heritage bay.

The cultural value of the ancient capital of Hue does not simply lie in golden architectural works such as palace relics, city walls, and mausoleums, but also in the sophistication and creativity of decorative arts. Nostalgia Cruise is a bridge, an (absolute) interference between two famous World Heritage Sites: a nostalgic touch of "Hue" right in the heart of Ha Long - Lan Ha Bay. The harmonious combination of natural and cultural values ​​promises to bring unique "two in one" experiences to the heritage bay, and we are proud to be the pioneer and leader in providing this type of this form of service.

In the 19th century, under the rule of the Nguyen Dynasty - the last dynasty in Vietnam's feudal history - Hue was chosen as the capital, serving as the country's political, cultural, and religious center. This period marked the birth of the Hue Citadel, one of the most important works of the Nguyen Dynasty, which preserves memories of Vietnam's majestic feudal era. By 1993, Hue Citadel was recognized by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage.

Nostalgia Cruise design

This is also the main source of inspiration in the process of conceptualizing and designing the yacht, with many details expressing Vietnamese cultural identity, (for example) such as the image of "dragon" and "cloud" symbolizing the desire for a peaceful, prosperous, and everlasting country.
