Saigon Tourist, one Viet Nam’s leading travel firms, will cooperate with Star Cruises Limited—the leading cruise line in Asia-Pacific—to re-open weekly cruises to Ha Long Bay in December.
The Star Cruises previously operated two cruise ships including Super Star Leo and Super Star Gemini bringing more than 80,000 visitors to Ha Long Bay per year.
The shipping company will offer around 39 long sea journeys on the SuperStar Virgo and SuperStar Aquarius with the maximum capacity of 1,000 – 2,200 passengers each from December 2007 to August 2008.
The ships will weekly depart from Hong Kong to Ha Long Bay. Visitors will originate primarily from China, Japan, and Korea.
Star Cruises, the third largest cruise operator in the world is a global cruise brand with a combined fleet of more than 20 ships under the Star Cruises, Norwegian Cruise Line, NCL America, Orient Lines, and Cruise Ferries brands.
