For those searching for an unparalleled luxury voyage experience, look no further. Ambassador Cruise, the industry-leading boutique cruise operator, has launched its new offering, the Ambassador Signature, to explore the mesmerizing waters of Lan Ha Bay.
Lan Ha Bay, nestled south of the renowned Halong Bay, is a hidden gem boasting roughly 300 karst islands and limestone outcroppings. While it mirrors the iconic beauty of its northern neighbour, Halong Bay, it remains a secluded paradise devoid of the typical tourist congestion. With the inaugural sailing of the Ambassador Signature, the bay’s untouched splendours are now accessible to discerning travellers.
Stepping aboard the Ambassador Signature promises an intimate experience, with only 39 berths available. The vessel sets itself apart, showcasing an interior that seamlessly merges ultimate luxury with modern design elements. Passengers can choose from four meticulously crafted cabin categories: the Ambassador Balcony, Executive Ambassador Balcony, Ambassador Balcony Suite, and the elite Captain’s View Ambassador Suite. Notably, the latter two come equipped with private terraces, ensuring guests can immerse themselves in the awe-inspiring landscapes of Lan Ha Bay without interruption. Each cabin also offers a spacious bathroom and private balcony, with sizes ranging from a generous 28 to 35 sqm.
But the Ambassador Signature is not merely about luxurious accommodations. The vessel houses a state-of-the-art spa, a posh piano lounge to unwind in, and Lan Ha Bay’s most spacious sundeck, ensuring every traveller’s relaxation and rejuvenation. Yet, its unrivalled culinary journey makes the experience aboard this vessel stand out. Michelin-starred chef David Gallienne, known for his exquisite menu creations, headlines the ship’s gastronomic offerings. As passengers indulge in these sumptuous dishes, they’ll be serenaded by the melodies of a resident band, further elevating their dining experience.
Ambassador Signature’s itinerary also boasts enticing optional excursions. Guests can explore Viet Hai, an authentic floating fishing village, or venture through the Light and Dark Cave by bamboo boat or kayak. This captivating cave, adorned with magnificent stalactites, leads to a serene lake ensconced by imposing limestone cliffs.
Nguyen Cao Son, the visionary founder of Asia Premier Cruises Corporation, which proudly owns Ambassador Cruise, expressed his enthusiasm about the launch: “The introduction of Ambassador Signature represents more than just a new vessel. It offers passengers a true sense of discovery, amplified by world-class amenities, unmatched accommodations, and of course, a dining experience curated by a Michelin-starred genius.”
Adding a feather to its cap, the ship beautifully integrated Asian-Vietnamese aesthetics with French colonial touches and had its spectacular launch on 21 July. Its unique offerings don’t end there. Whether it’s the unparalleled 360-degree views of the bay from the sundeck, the holistic spa treatments, or the evening entertainment, every facet of the Ambassador Signature ensures an unforgettable voyage.
Gaining recognition, Ambassador Cruise was recently honoured with the World TOPHeritage Gourmet Award by the International Business Federation, emphasizing its commitment to exceptional culinary experiences. With the addition of the Ambassador Signature, the cruise operator now boasts a fleet of three elite vessels, including Ambassador I and Ambassador II, catering to a range of cruise experiences from overnight to dinner cruises.
