The 6-star Silver Shadow docked at the Ha Long International Passenger Terminal on Sunday, becoming the first luxury cruise ship to visit the northern province of Quang Ninh in the 2019 lunar year.
The 400 passengers onboard were greeted by ladies wearing ao dai (Vietnam's traditional long gown) and a lion dance. The passengers, who mainly come from the US and Europe, will take on tours of Ha Long Bay and some other scenic spots in Ha Long city and Hanoi.
Silver Shadow is an award-winning passenger cruise ship with all the hallmarks of extreme luxury at sea. Operated by Silversea Cruises, it's on a 14-day trip from Hongkong to Ha Long, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok, and Singapore.
