She can be pompous at times but her coquettishness will melt any heart.
Heritage Line’s family of boutique cruise ships includes “Three Sisters” in Halong Bay, the youngest of whom is the coquettish Violet. The Violet is named after the beautiful Violet Chirita, a delicate purple-flowered plant that grows nowhere else but on the rocky slopes of Halong Bay. Like her namesake, The Violet is small and exquisite.
With just six luxurious cabins, the Violet gives visitors an exclusive look at the wonders of Halong Bay. In this small yet luxurious craft, visitors can appreciate the bay’s massive scale, the boat’s red sails dwarfed by the bay’s towering limestone islands.
Built to resemble a traditional Asian junk, the wood-clad Violet features gleaming wooden floors, opulent silks and velvets, and cabins with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the breathtaking views. Guests will find all the amenities they would expect in a larger vessel, including a gym and sauna, a spa with unrivaled views, a restaurant and a lounge, and a rooftop Sundeck. For an intimate experience of Halong Bay, there is nothing to compare to the lovely Violet.

The Lounge

The Lounge is set up with traditional wooden materials and Indochina patterns creating an elegant atmosphere to while your time away. The Library invites you to rummage and examine a bit.

The spa

The Spa offers a varied selection of relaxing treatments. A secluded room with space for one is the perfect refuge to dream away on one of those mystic Halong evenings.

Gym and Sauna

The extravagant Violet also has its own gym and sauna. Be a little sporty – lift those free weights and feel totally relaxed and ready to sneak into your soft bed after a muscle soothing sauna (max. 2 people) session with aromatic oils.


The Sundeck with its numerous sun beds is not only a place for watching islets and islands – the Violet hosts its dinners here in an exclusive set up of lanterns and stars. A day-bar with lounge-like wooden sofas offer guests the ultimate setting for their sun-downers.

Life Onboard

Imagine waking up to the sweet warble of chirping. The early rays of the sun start to kiss the curtains and floor of your beautiful cabin. The smell of coffee – strong but not pungent – gently glides to your cabin.
All along the way from your cabin to the restaurant you are greeted by the cherubic smiles of the staff. You think: “Soon, they will not be staff to me but friends”. Breakfast is set up on table with a variable menu to choose.
A day filled with adventure lies ahead. The amazing fishing village awaits. You have thought about this day since leaving your home country and now you are in the middle of it.
And you look forward to returning to the Violet. You glide into the blue hour of the day. You slip into the Jacuzzi – warm and inviting – and the bubbles start to tenderly massage you. As you lay your head on the soft pillow, your thoughts wander to the day after. A memory for a lifetime.
