Violet cruise

Location: Tuan Chau Halong
Heritage Line’s family of boutique cruise ships includes “The Sisters” of Halong Bay, the youngest of whom is the coquettish Violet. Violet is named after the beautiful Violet Chirita, a delicate purple-flowered plant native to the rocky slopes of Halong Bay. Like her namesake, Violet is small and exquisite.


With just six luxurious cabins, Violet gives visitors an exclusive look at the wonders of Halong Bay. In this small yet luxurious craft, visitors can appreciate the bay’s massive scale, the boat’s red sails dwarfed by the bay’s towering limestone islands.

Built to resemble a traditional Asian junk, the wood-clad Violet features gleaming wooden floors, opulent silks and velvet, and cabins with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the breathtaking views. Guests will find all the amenities they would expect in a larger vessel, including a spa with unrivaled views, a restaurant and a lounge, and a rooftop Sundeck. For an intimate experience of Halong Bay, there is nothing to compare to the lovely Violet.

Restaurant with Bar

A French Colonial aura reigns in the restaurant and this eatery feels more like a bourgeois living room where friends are made and tête-à-tête conducted over red wine. Our high end cuisine produces varied tastes and flavours but – as you can imagine – is chiefly specialized in seafood. Set menus and a wide choice of à la carte cuisine are offered. The subtle small bar with illuminated backboard artwork is the ideal place for a pre-dinner drink before taking your seat at your private table.

The Lounge

The Lounge is set up with traditional wooden materials and Indochina patterns creating an elegant atmosphere to while your time away. The Library invites you to rummage and examine a bit.

The spa
The Spa offers a varied selection of relaxing treatments. A secluded room with space for one is the perfect refuge to dream away on one of those mystic Halong evenings.

The Sundeck with its numerous sun beds is not only a place for watching islets and islands – the Violet hosts its dinners here in an exclusive set up of lanterns and stars. A day-bar with lounge-like wooden sofas offer guests the ultimate setting for their sun-downers.

Our culinary team serves you delicious and beautifully presented regional and international fare in the private atmosphere of the restaurant or even to your room. Fresh local ingredients, including of course products from the sea as well as imported ones, are used to make sure your palate will remember your meals on Violet for years to come.
