The inspiration behind Starlight Cruise on Halong Bay is directed derived from the love to the sky and the sea of the ship owner, Mr. Hai Phong – who has been recognized for providing the finest wooden cruise ships on Halong Bay over the years. This cruise lover decided to build the ship with one purpose in mind: to provide the most luxurious and immersive experience in World Heritage’s Halong Bay. With a design that combines elegance with local artifacts and regional touches, Starlight Cruise offers an unparalleled setting for your exotic odyssey.

After a long time in ship building workshop, finally, in July 2013 the spiritual son of the two cruise lovers – Starlight Cruise Halong was launched into service and from that day, international and Vietnamese travelers had another choice for luxury experience on Halong Bay. Over the time of development, Starlight Cruise is a popular luxury brand name for any looking for a sumptuous vessel.

The priority in design our cruise on Halong Bay has always been to maximize the enjoyment, convenience and comfort for our guests. The ship’s exquisitely decorated 32 spacious staterooms feature all the amenities of a fine hotel, with a large bed, a cozy sitting area, individually controlled air-conditioning, mini-bar, safety deposit box, in-house telephone, bathroom with shower, bathrobe slippers, hairdryer and in-house television.

Victory Star Cruise

This cruise should be decent, luxury, modern but also very traditional. This idea came up in 2007 but Cruise management could only bring Victory Star Cruise into operation in 2009 after taking two years for design, building and  decorate the cruiser.
