Set sail on January 2020, Paradise Grand is the first Paradise Cruise ship to explore Lan Ha Bay & Cat Ba Island, situated just south of famed Ha Long Bay. The five-deck steel craft measures 70 meters long and 13.5 meters across at the beam, caters to up to 80 passengers, and houses 39 spacious cabins with separate walk-in closets, en-suite bathrooms, and private balconies affording vistas of the bay.
Paradise Grand’s plethora of conveniences range from a butler service for all guests, a fine dining menu crafted by celebrity British Michelin-starred chef John Burton Race, and live music at an elegant bar, to an indulgent spa, a reading area, and a vast sun deck and sky lounge with panoramic views dominated by the bay’s dramatic limestone karsts.
Highlights on the new cruise’s one-night and two-night itineraries include kayaking on Lan Ha Bay and trekking and cycling in Cat Ba National Park on Cat Ba Island, as well as a cooking class, Vietnamese wine tasting, and sunrise tai chi onboard.
