What To Expect
This PONANT brand-new itinerary invites you to discover Vietnam. Embark in Ho Chi Minh City for an 11-day cruise between sumptuous landscapes and timeless cities.
  • Day 1: ARRIVE HO CHI MINH CITY, VIETNAM (EMBARKATION)

    Embarkation from 21h59 to 22h59. Your ship is ready for boarding

  • Day 2: HO CHI MINH CITY

    Located near the Mekong delta, Ho Chi Minh City is the largest city in Vietnam. You have a full day to explore this city before the ship depart at 23h59 to next destination.
    Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 3: AT SEA

    During your day at sea, make the most of the many services and activities on board.
    Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 4: NHA TRANG

    Nha Trang, the capital of the Khanh Hoa province in Vietnam, is a coastal city with 300,000 inhabitants. Famous for its long, 7-km white sand beach along which runs Tran Phu Street, the city’s main thoroughfare, Nha Trang is a member of the Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club, an international association that includes 41 bays. The bay is the reason the city is sometimes called the “Riviera of the South China Sea”. You will have the opportunity to discover the city during a rather original experience: a tour in a rickshaw.
    Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 5: DOC LET

    You will stop in Doc Let, a small, tranquil haven away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. You will be lulled by the soothing atmosphere of this beautiful 10-km long (6 miles) beach, an idyllic setting reminiscent of the Maldives. The soft colours of this light-soaked shoreline, the ebb and flow of the turquoise water caressing the white sand, and the coconut trees offering refreshing shade compose a stunning and wild setting protected by sand dunes and a forest of filao trees lining the immaculate expanse. You will have the opportunity to enjoy a pleasant break in this exquisite place. Relax, swim in the crystal-clear waters, or go snorkelling to discover the marine life.
    Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 6: QUY NHON

    When your ship calls at Quy Nhon you will be able to discover the Ganh Da Dia, an area of impressive basalt rock formations created by a volcanic eruption that occurred 200 million years ago. When the blocks of lava came into contact with the freezing water, neat vertical fissures appeared, forming an amalgam of columns whose surface, once cooled, became square, round or hexagonal. Some are vertical, others oblique, and in places they are of different sizes. Some of the structures almost look like piled up dishes. You will be able to discover this surprising rock formation which, although made entirely by nature, seems to have been perfectly designed by man.
    Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 7: DA NANG

    Mid-way between Ho Chi Minh City to the south and Hanoi to the north, Da Nang enjoys an ideal location in Vietnam. The old colonial town has skilfully navigated the transition to economic growth, becoming a wealthy tourist destination. With its five Marble Mountains, its 72-metre high Buddha and white sand beach, Da Nang will create some magical memories, made sublime by a secular culinary tradition that has nothing left to prove. It is also the gateway to the country’s treasures, including the cities of Hoi-An and Hue, which are both UNESCO World Heritage sites.
    Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 8: DA NANG

    Free to explore this city until late afternoon. Later, set sail to Hon La
    Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 9: HON LA

    From Hon La, your port of call, you will sail to one of the most exceptional limestone karst ecosystems in the world, Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2003. Nearly 300 caves and over 100 km (62 miles) of galleries and underground rivers are scattered across this park with an extraordinary biodiversity which is also home to a large variety of protected species. The park’s reputation is on a par with the awe its treasures inspire. You will very likely have the privilege of visiting one of these caves. In this magical setting, surrounded by lush vegetation, you will witness a masterpiece that only nature could have created. Enjoy a pure moment of grace.
    Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 10: SAILING IN HA LONG BAY

    Located 170 kilometres east of Hanoi, in the gulf of Tonkin, Halong bay is a marvel of marvels. A must for all who wish to soak up the spirit of Vietnam, at once peaceful and mysterious. You’ll sail into the heart of this legendary natural beauty, not surprisingly listed as UNESCO World Heritage. Over approximately 1,500 square kilometres, the famous bay offers an infinite quasi supernatural and ghostly spectacle of limestone pillars rising from the sea in all shapes and sizes, sculpted by nature for centuries. This exceptional scenic beauty of this site includes myriad creeks, caves and other interior lakes to feast your eyes on.
    Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

  • Day 11: DEPART HAIPHONG (DISEMBARKATION)
