Lux Cruises’ Heritage Bình Chuẩn Nominated for World’s Best Cruise Ship for Dining 2024

Hanoi, Vietnam – Lux Cruises is thrilled to announce that the Heritage Bình Chuẩn has been nominated for the prestigious ‘World’s Best Cruise Ship for Dining‘ at the World Cruise Awards 2024. This marks the first time a Lux Cruises ship has received a nomination in this category, underscoring the exceptional culinary experience offered aboard.

Reviving Heritage with the Name Bình Chuẩn

The Heritage Bình Chuẩn, inspired by a legacy stretching back three centuries, embodies the Vietnamese spirit of equality and development, drawing its name from significant historical figures and enterprises that shaped Vietnam’s commercial success. The ship’s distinctive style celebrates the rich Vietnamese culture, art, and cuisine of the early 20th century, providing guests with a vivid journey through time while exploring Cát Bà Archipelago and Hạ Long Bay.

Phạm Hà, Chairman of Lux Cruises Group, stated, “Naming our cruise ship Heritage Bình Chuẩn is a nod to the pioneering spirit of Bạch Thái Bưởi, known as the ‘king of ships.’ We aim to evoke a sense of pride and historical resonance for Vietnamese and awe for international tourists with the rich cultural tapestry and spirit of Vietnam.”

Elevating Heritage on Every Voyage

The Heritage Bình Chuẩn is not just a cruise ship but a cultural immersion. With interiors that reflect the elegance of Indochine architecture and amenities that pay homage to Vietnam’s artistic heritage, every aspect of the cruise is designed to offer an enriching experience. The ship features the largest bronze statue of Bạch Thái Bưởi, commemorating his contributions to Vietnamese entrepreneurship and independence.

Cultural immersion continues with Le Tonkin, the onboard restaurant that offers a culinary exploration of Northern Vietnam. Guests can enjoy traditional Vietnamese dishes, prepared with local ingredients and served in an atmosphere of early 20th-century nostalgia. The experience is further enhanced by performances of traditional music and the wearing of áo dài, allowing guests to engage deeply with Vietnamese culture.

A Culinary Journey

Le Tonkin, our onboard restaurant located within the Heritage Cruises Bình Chuẩn in the Cat Ba Archipelago, stands as a beacon of culinary excellence. With a focus on fresh, local ingredients and a blend of creative and classic cooking techniques, our chefs craft dishes that tell stories, celebrating the rich culinary traditions of Vietnam. Accompanied by a meticulously selected wine list, dining at Le Tonkin is both a discovery and a delight.

The nomination by the World Cruise Awards recognizes the unparalleled dining experience provided by Lux Cruises, matching the standards of the world’s finest hotels and restaurants.
