The Scarlet Pearl is the only luxury cruise in Halong Bay that is dedicated to providing travelers with an experience that is both environmentally responsible and sustainable. Join us on an excursion to the magnificent Lan Ha Bay to learn about everything from the untouched Viet Hai village to the breathtaking and enigmatic Bright cave, and find out what more we have in store for you.
Because of its metal construction, the ship exudes a sense of self-assurance and strength. The name "Scarlet Pearl" was inspired by the historic industry of pearl farming, which is graced with these stunning naturally occurring gifts. Because of the white hue that surrounds the hull, the voyage gives the appearance of a large pearl floating on emerald water.
The trip includes 23 luxurious accommodations, with four themed suites to choose from (Silver Pearl, Golden Pearl, Onyx Pearl, and Scarlet Pearl). It is also well-known for having the largest President cabin in all of Halong. This cabin has an excellent interior as well as a nice exterior, and it overlooks the breathtaking scenery of the bay.
Scarlet Pearl is the only Halong cruise that offers a three-day, two-night itinerary that includes a catamaran ride on the second day. Scarlet Pearl provides guests with the best experience possible, meeting the high standards of a 5-star cruise.
