Today we would like to give you some insights in our new ship project. As many of you might know, Ginger will return in 2018 in a completely new appearance. A marvelous floating home cruising through an even more stunning new scenery. Ginger will sail the serene waters of Lan Ha Bay, which is a part of Halong Bay.


(New) Ginger already has taken up her shape, Heritage Line’s Director of Sales and Marketing Andreas Schroetter from the shipyard describes, “I think that boat will drop every jaw next year, seeing the hull and the upper structure I am amazed and cannot wait to introduce this vessel to our clients in the near future.” Full floor to ceiling glass windows allow Spa guests to marvel at the beauty of the untouched nature at Lan Ha Bay whilst receiving massage treatments. The restaurant is located on the upper deck, a space flooded with light and 360 degree views, with an Al-fresco seating area outside along the railing. Additionally, live cooking stations will enable passengers to interact with our chefs for a totally new culinary experience.

2 DAYS PROGRAM

Day 1: Hanoi - Drive to Halong - Lan Ha Bay

After meeting at Heritage Line’s welcome lounge at the Tuan Chau Marina, we take a quick speedboat transfer to your luxurious floating home before starting our unique journey of exploring one of the wonders of nature – Lan Ha Bay and its main island of Cat Ba. The first highlight of the cruise is lunch, which we serve in Ginger’s nearly 360-degree light-flooded restaurant. Our live cooking in the open kitchen is a one of a kind experience – enjoy the culinary display along with fantastic panoramic views of the passing scenery.

Relax on the terrace deck or on your private balcony and soak in the enchanting aura which emanates from the surreal seascape. While we cruise along in the early afternoon, there is time to enjoy our unique facilities on board. Take a plunge in the pool with infinity-like vistas or let us pamper you with a selection of fine treatments and massages in the beautiful Ginger Spa.

As we reach the shore of a small lagoon on Cat Ba Island, we hop on bicycles (electric cart transfers are also available) for a tour along small paved roads towards Viet Hai village. Little has changed in Viet Hai since the ancestors of the 80 households settled here centuries ago. Situated in a valley within Cat Ba National Park and surrounded on all sides by forest and mountains, the locals are isolated from the island’s other villages and towns. The community is self-sufficient, as the residents provide for themselves by working the farms, fishing, or collecting rain water for drinking. Here you have the unique and authentic opportunity to meet the local inhabitants, learn about the fruits and vegetables grown in the valley, have a glimpse of local households and try some homemade liquors.

Back on board, our chef is prepared for an interactive cooking class in the restaurant’s open kitchen. Learn about local ingredients as well as the preparation of classic Vietnamese dishes.

As the sun sets, we arrive at a tranquil anchor spot for the night. In this hidden spot, you can revel in the memories of the day’s adventures with a cocktail under the stars.

After a delicious dinner, you may like to unwind at our bar with a digestif or watch a movie in the evening cinema which is set up in the dining area later on. Or join our team and have some fun fishing for squid before retiring to your room.

Day 2: Lan Ha Bay - Halong - Hanoi

Wake up early and join our Tai Chi session on the terrace deck to ease your mind and muscles with the first rays of the sun touching the water. Coffee, tea and breakfast pastries await you in the dining room to start the new day.

It is time for Ginger to lift her anchors and cruise to Frog Lake, a secluded spot which is perfect for our morning excursion. Go for a refreshing “bay swim” or explore this captivating marine landscape via kayak. The cliffs stretch vertically out of the water and you feel a sense of freedom while meandering through this green medley of water and tree-topped islets.

Back on board, we serve a hearty breakfast while cruising back to our mid-bay anchoring spot, from where we will transfer you back to the welcome lounge at the pier. Savour the last moments of this unique journey while relaxing on comfy sun beds on the terrace deck.

CABINS

Ginger has only 12 spacious, natural light- flooded Suites - all with wide panorama sliding glass doors opening onto a private balcony.

Another exclusive facility is the adjacent pool, encir-cled by shaded cabanas and sun beds. Located in the stern of the ship, offering wonderful views of the bay through vitreous floor to ceiling frames, the spa area adds another state-of-the-art facility.
