Officially open on 18 December 2007, the newest four star junk named Jasmine Cruise Halong will set the standard for services and amenities on the bay. Enjoy the intimacy of a small party within the space of Halong Bay’s largest cruise junk. A lengthy 55 meters from bow to stern and measuring an impressive 11 meters wide, Jasmine Cruise Halong can accommodate 80 passengers at any one time across four luxurious decks, with an overnight capacity of 48. The attention to detail and quality of design is apparent in every inch of this newly-built junk, artfully marrying space, rich 1930s Indochina-style wooden décor and exquisite ornamentation throughout its air-conditioned bedrooms, restaurant, bars and communal spaces. Whether you want to throw a party on the sundeck, enjoy an intimate candle-lit dinner in the jasmine restaurant, or just find a quiet nook or cranny to relax and unwind, Jasmine Cruise Halong is the perfect way to enjoy the bay.
