The high-speed ferry regarded as the most luxurious and modern cruise liner in Viet Nam has just been launched by state-run Vinashin in the middle of December.
“I am so pleased with the crew, staff and the service provided on the liner. I do not get motion sickness like when I take a ride in a car or train. We are very comfortable with the ultra modern and comfortable facilities, except the staircase. However, the formalities should be improved and simplified” said a passenger.
The ship was purchased in Italy at a cost of VND1,320 billion (EUR60 million) and aims at offering travelers the best international service, says the company. It is 187 meters long and 25 meters wide, and can transport 1,000 passengers and 500 cars.
