Explore Vietnam’s gorgeous southern coast on a comfortable small-ship adventure
It’s a delight to explore Vietnam on foot, but a small-ship adventure cruise sheds a whole new light on this beloved Intrepid destination. Set off for a week of discovery and leisure along the tranquil blue waters of Vietnam’s south coast. Dropping anchor in Hoi An, Nha Trang, Quy Nonh, Phan Tiet and more, encounter blazing sand dunes, centuries-old Cham architecture, age-old arts and crafts, and bays brimming with brightly coloured tropical fish and coral. With spacious sun decks, plush cabins and Vietnamese cuisine of the highest calibre to feast on along the way, this small-ship adventure cruise is South East Asia done in style.
Learn the fine art of rolling spring rolls at a cooking class in Hoi An, and partake in an onboard cooking demonstration and tasting with a top local chef
Experience Nha Trang the right way – in traditional bamboo basket boats around nearby islands, and of course with some snorkelling
Marvel at Cham architecture dating back as far as the 12th century – the Po Klong Garai Cham in Nha Trang, and Twin Cham Towers in Quy Nhon
Enjoy a pottery demonstration in Bau Truc, the oldest pottery village in South East Asia
Drop anchor in Phan Tiet to see the enormous Tra Cu reclining Buddha, the Fairy Spring and the awesome sand dunes of Mui Ne
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
