Starting in operation in early 2012, Pelican Cruise is one of the newest and also most modern cruises sailing in Ha Long Bay. This is also considered one of the most popular cruises in this bay with services and amenities that meet the standard of a 4-star deluxe hotel. It is estimated that 2 more luxurious cruises of Pelican Line at Halong Bay are projected to be in service in later 2013.
Ha Long Bay, located in the Gulf of Tonkin, within Quang Ninh Province, in the northeast of Vietnam, is165 km from the capital of Ha Noi. Covering an area of 43,400 ha and including over 1600 islands and islets, most of which are uninhabitated and unaffected by humans, it forms a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars and is an ideal model of a mature Karst landscape developed during a warm and wet tropical climate. The property’s exceptional scenic beauty is complemented by its great biological interest.
The outstanding value of the property is centered around the drowned limestone karst landforms, displaying spectacular pillars with a variety of coastal erosional features such as arches and caves which form a majestic natural scenery. The repeated regression and transgression of the sea on the limestone karst over geological time has produced a mature landscape of clusters of conical peaks and isolated towers which were modified by sea invasion, adding an extra elemant to the process of lateral undercutting of the limstone towers and islands.
Pelican Cruise is capable to provide 22 double cabins to passengers with standardized amenities and noble decoration under unique main white color. Up on the top of this cruise is a broad sundeck with chair and lounge for guests to enjoy bright sunlight in the most pleasant atmosphere. Passengers on this cruise are also given chances to participate in numerous exciting activities and services offered by the cruise, including kayaking, fishing, swimming or spa area inside. Moreover, restaurant inside Pelican Cruise is always available to serve passengers delicious dishes which are made from top fresh ingredient under experienced hands of chef there
