The gracious Ginger will be Heritage Line’s new vessel cruising the Lan Ha Bay, which is a tranquil part of the famous Halong Bay in Vietnam. Ginger hosts only 12 large suites, all naturally light-flooded and with well-sized balcony. There will be two Regent Suites in the highest room category. Additional four Signature Suites and six Junior Suites complete the suite only vessel. Ginger expresses her elegance with warm timber floors, marble bathrooms and distinguished design themes that interlace the long-lasting traditions of Northern Vietnam paired with contemporary accents.

Ginger’s uniqueness is expressed with a special culinary theme as well as a refreshing lifestyle atmosphere. The terrace deck is a marvelous public area. An almost 360-degree light-flooded restaurant offering live cooking is framed by an outdoor alfresco area. An indoor bar corner invites to relax before or after dinner.

The most exclusive facility is Ginger’s pool on the terrace deck. Surrounded by comfortable shaded sunbeds, the views from the pool are spectacular. So are the views from the spa rooms in the stern of the ship – one VIP spa room comes with steam bath. Combine relaxing spa treatments with dramatic outlooks through floor to ceiling glass windows on the bay.

The Signature Suites have the same total floor space of 37 sqm (including a 5 sqm private balcony) as the Junior Suites but are located on the upper deck. They feature a warm yellow, earthy brown and antique gold flower theme with intricate, feminine décor. Delicate floral embroideries on silk panels inspire guests to revel in romance and poetry.

The light-flooded expansive bathroom in conjunction with the private balcony (6 sqm) make the Regent Suites a special abode.

Reception Lounge

With its ceiling covered with delicate wood panels and warm colored stucco decoration, the lobby reminds of ancient Indochinese wooden junks gliding over the calm waters of the bay. Armchairs and sofas as seating space are available and a little boutique corner invites guests to get a souvenir.

Library Lounge

The library lounge is an air-conditioned area with a comfortable sofa lounge arrangement. Take some books or magazines or talk shop with our friendly crew about the displayed antiques and artifacts.

Lady Ginger Spa

The vast spa is located on the upper deck and occupies the whole stern area of the ship hosting three treatment rooms. All of them offer views of the peaceful Lan Ha Bay. One area offers comfortable massage chairs with fine upholstery for reflexology, manicure and pedicure. The two other private rooms, one of which has a steam bath, are enjoyable sanctuaries for couple and single treatments.

Restaurant with Live Cooking & Bar

Ginger’s top “USP” is very likely its practically 360-degree view daylight-flooded restaurant and bar. Surrounded by glass and a decorative ceiling, the centrally located live cooking zone is the venue’s epicenter and brings life and excitement to the culinary experience. Dark wooden furniture with luxurious fabrics offer comfy, private seating. The stylishly illuminated backdrop of the adjacent bar invites guests to get together at any time of the day without missing a single glimpse of the bay.

Terrace Deck

Ginger’s terrace deck is the perfect place to spend time outdoors while on board. This deck boasts a pool tiled with blue mosaic tiles and is surrounded by lush cabana-shaded sun beds, creating a lifestyle vacation flair in the middle of one of the most surreal seascapes on earth.

Step aboard Ginger, your home while you explore one of nature’s wonders, Lan Ha Bay. The private atmosphere on board makes it feel almost like you have the whole vessel to yourself. Enjoy the vast space and homey feeling in your room, or head out to the pool deck and take in the blue hour with a sundowner after some cycling around the jungle-like Cat Ba Island. You can also learn more about local cuisine and customs by joining a cooking class to find out how to strip down a fresh squid – be careful with the ink! But maybe nothing is more enjoyable on Ginger than a private balcony breakfast in close togetherness with your partner while the boat slowly sails back to the harbor passing thousands of karsts and small islands.
