Cruise in style along Vietnam’s sultry southern coast
Vietnam is a joy to explore on foot, but small-ship adventure cruising casts this classic destination in a whole new light. Embark on a week of leisure and discovery along southern Vietnam’s beautiful blue-sea coast, from Ho Chi Minh City to Da Nang via Nha Trang, Hoi An and more. Drop anchor in quiet spots along the way and find sun-kissed sand dunes, centuries-old Cham architecture, traditional arts and crafts still thriving, shimmering waters full of coral and tropical fish, and that light, fresh, crunchy Vietnamese cuisine done by those who do it best. This is small-ship adventure cruising, South East Asia style.
Drop anchor in Phan Tiet to witness the enormous reclining Buddha on Ta Cu Mountain, the Fairy Spring and the glorious sand dunes of Mui Ne
See how pottery is done the old fashioned way, without kilns or turntables, in Bau Truc, the oldest pottery village in South East Asia
Marvel at Cham architecture, some of which dates back as far as the 11th century – the Po Klong Garai Cham in Nha Trang, and Twin Cham Towers in Qui Nhon
Stroll the tailors and artisan shops of Hoi An and take home that bespoke souvenir
This is a small ship adventure cruise, which means you’ll be sailing on a yacht with 30–50 other people. The boat is spacious and comfortable, but it focuses more on the destination than onboard activities. Instead of a pool, we have the sea itself. Instead of a casino, we’ve got board games and a good book. There’s also no formal dress code to worry about. Wi-Fi is available for a small charge.
Our ship moves under engine power rather than sailing, so all cabins will experience light engine noise when the ship is moving (and occasionally when we drop anchor). It’s probably worth packing earplugs if you’re a light sleeper.
If you’re concerned about seasickness, there are seasickness tablets on-board. The ship will experience some roll and pitch in choppy conditions, however all of our ships come equipped with stabilisers to minimise movement. Most of our departures run in peak season, when the seas are calmer. Your crew will do all they can to minimise any discomfort.
There are no lifts (elevators) onboard our ships, so you’ll have to navigate a few steep flights of stairs. Handrails are always available.
On this itinerary, you'll be travelling aboard the Panorama II
