Vietnam Cruise

Vietnam is on the menu of the vast majority of luxury Asia cruises as well as most world cruises. It is also a major stop on many traditional Asia cruises. Fortunately, an Asia cruise is one of the most popular overseas cruises on the market today, so finding a Vietnam cruise to fit your schedule and budget will be easy.

In addition to Nha Trang, Vietnam, Asia cruises feature more than 50 ports of call on the menu. During Asia cruises on larger ships, passengers may visit villages large and small throughout Vietnam as well as exotic places such as Shanghai, Osaka and Bali. On smaller ships or even on your own private “junk,” passengers will have the opportunity to explore the Yangtze River in China and the Red River in Vietnam. Excursions run the gamut from the Great Wall and gilded temples to historic tours and shopping sprees. In Vietnam, guests can expect to visit the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology, magical Halong Bay, which is made up of 1,600 mostly-uninhabited islands and islets and the pagodas, towers and villages of Qui Nhon. Wherever your Vietnam cruise takes you, you will experience Asia’s ancient traditions, become a part of Asia’s modern culture, and visit numerous sites and structures that most can only dream of.

The most popular Asia cruise is Princess Cruise Lines Asia Cruisetour. Princess cruisetours feature a unique combination of a cruise and land tour. The tour typically lasts anywhere from 15 to 25 nights. These special cruisetours offer everything from tours of Beijing and Xian to sailing down the Yangtze River and the famous Three Gorges. Passengers will also visit Cambodia’s temples of Angkor Wat and more.

Cruise lines prefer advanced booking, so you may enjoy special incentives, credits, and cash back just for booking far in advance.

If a Vietnam cruise or Asia cruise is not completely booked several weeks or so before the cruise departs, prices are slashed. If you book last minute, you may enjoy savings up to 75%. Cruise lines will do anything to fill up those last few cabins.

Besides special rates for groups and families, just about every cruise line has special rates for seniors. A senior is typically defined as a person who is 55 or older.
