About Serenity Cruises
The name “Serenity” is the style, and is the dream. Every line has its own personality – and appeals to a different type of person. While other cruises are suitable for fun-loving crowd, Serenity Cruises draws quieter and more style-conscious customers. Serenity cruises is for people who long for being floating between the calm azure blue sea, rising limestone peaks covered in green foliage and the boundless sky. Serenity Cruises is created for the internal conversation with your own self to discover how resourceful you are and how strong your connection with the nature and culture can be. Serenity is also the dream of the Cruise Line founder. Having a special bond with the bays and islands after more than 10 years working as a tour organizer in the domain of Cat Ba Island. Unlike hustel and bustel Ha Long Bay, Lan Ha is an attractively idyllic Bay dotted with small fishing boats here and there. No pushy persistent vendors,no hidden prices, only honest local folks and peaceful life.
