Hera was the queen of the gods, uniting heaven and earth. Our namesake 6-star ship marries the celestial qualities of the goddess with energies from the five elements for an elite cruise experience like no other. We highlight the majesty of the excursion in Halong Bay through design that showcases striking panoramas, world-class amenities, and locally crafted wooden furnishings.

Hera Cruises features 11 spacious luxury cabins—each with a different story—that provide the utmost intimacy and exclusive conveniences. On the second deck, rooms have all-glass windows that allow for full views of the bay, to be enjoyed from your own bed or bathtub with a glass of champagne. Our ship brings you to a reserved area for interacting with local fishers and viewing a museum model of native artifacts. The itinerary leaves room for self-care, during which time you can use our gym, unwind in our sauna, or simply lie out on our sundeck and indulge in a signature drink. On our tour, feel the sun on your face, the wind in your hair, the water at your feet, with your being rooted firmly in the earth. It is a getaway that will stay with you for a lifetime.
We use the latest in navigational technology and stay up-to-date on safety drills, crew training, and equipment inspection. Our eco-friendly mission means that we are trained to manage waste appropriately, and we encourage you to do the same on your travels with us through mindful trash disposal.
