September 3, 2015 in Cruises by cipcipTrip

Vietnam’s first five star all-inclusive cruise, Emperor Cruises ( has been chosen for the most prestigious honor at the annual Guide Awards 2015 and named “The best cruises in Nha Trang Bay, Vietnam.

Luxury travelers now have the opportunity to cruise in Nha Trang Bay, not just in Halong Bay and along the Mekong. Being recognized as the pearl of the South Central Coast of Vietnam, Nha Trang has become one of the most famous tourist destinations in Vietnam because of its natural beauty and superb climate with 300 days of sunshine.

But Nha Trang is not just beaches, islands, sun, sea, sand and delicious seafood — it’s also home to ancient cultural icons and historical museums, and in recent years has been remodeled as one of Vietnam’s day-into-night hotspots.

The birth of Emperor Cruises was inspired by the recreational activities of Emperor Bao Dai, the last emperor of Vietnam, who took adventure trips exploring Nha Trang Bay, its surrounding islands, and its beaches during his reign. Emperor Cruises offer two all-inclusive products in this its first year of operations – Day Cruises and Sunset Cocktail & Dinner Cruises around the bay.

The Guide Awards is an annual event organized by Vietnam Economic Times to celebrate the best products and services in Vietnam’s tourism and hospitality sector. This year marks its 16th anniversary and the awards ceremony, honoring the excellent achievements in the tourism industry in 2014/15, will take place on Saturday, September 19, 2015, at the Gem Center, 8 Nguyen Binh Khiem Street, District 1, HCM City, Vietnam.

The honorees are initially nominated by readers of the lifestyle and luxury magazine, with the shortlist presented to the executive board of the Guide, a publication of Vietnam Economic Times, based on such criteria as the quality of infrastructure and services, environmental awareness and contributions to the sector. Travel, hotel, restaurant and shopping experts are invited to assist the board in making their decision

“We are proud that Emperor Cruises has received a Guide Award after such a short time of operation in Nha Trang Bay. Thank you to our great team for their efforts to ensure our customers enjoy every moment on board.

Emperor Cruises will launch overnight cruises in Nha Trang Bay on an all-suite 8-cabin vessel, followed by an 18-suite cabin vessel the year after. We are the very first people to unlock Nha Trang’s treasures and make a cruise industry there acclaimed worldwide” said Allister Esguerra, Emperor Cruises’s Director of Sales and Marketing
