Emperor CruisesVietnam/Emperor+Cruises

Emperor Cruises offers an authentic and unique cruise experience, inspired by Emperor Bao Dai. The boat itself is a trip down memory lane to the 1930s - rich in history, art and design. There are two different cruises to choose from: the Nha Trang Discovery Day Cruise (Lunch) and the Sunset Cocktail and Dinner Cruise (Dinner). During the day cruise, explore numerous islands around the bay of Nha Trang, some inhabited and many dotted with idyllic fishing villages. For the sunset cruise, the boat heads out into Nha Trang Bay, while guests enjoy a delicious 5-course gourmet seafood dinner with musicians. Drinks, transfers and activities for both cruises are on an all-inclusive basis. Departures are every day, regardless of the number of passengers. Private charters for either leisure or business are also available upon request.

The Chef and the Brigade

“I am very passionate about Vietnamese cuisine, and I like using fresh ingredients straight from the ocean or local markets. I learned how to replicate royal recipes used for the last Emperor and Queen with ingredients like bird’s nest, abalone, lobster... each dish has a story to tell. Every course is infused with creativity. I hope every guest will find the experience memorable.”



  • Atmosphere
