In 2019, Victory Cruise was given a brand-new look from head to toe after undergoing a major renovation. The total makeover not only upgrades the boat’s interiors and amenities for guests, but also offers travellers a chance at considerably lower fares compared to newer ships. With the newly designed full-length windows, Victory’s once-dated restaurant and bar are now bright, sleek, and sophisticated. This is where guests can indulge themselves in the finest Vietnamese and international dining.

Useful information

Especially for the north and central Vietnam;

In the period between November and April, the weather is variable, from sunny to cold and rainy. It is advisable during this period to bring some rain gear with some warmer clothes. In the period from April to November, it is good to pack a hat with a wide brim, sunscreen (at least SPF15) and a reliable insect repellent. A thin rain poncho is useful all year round.

The south of Vietnam is generally a lot warmer all year round, so warm clothing is not really necessary.
