What does the word “Serenity” imply? It implies the style and ethos of our cruises, appealing to a certain type of person.

Whilst some cruises appeal to a fun-loving crowd, Serenity Cruises draw a quieter, more style-conscious customer. They are cruises for discerning people who dream of floating on a calm, azure sea, among limestone peaks under boundless skies. Cruises designed for self-contemplation, to discover your inner resources and how strong your connection is with nature and local culture.

Introduction

Our history

Serenity is also the dream of the cruise line founder. After working for over ten years as a tour organizer on and around Cat Ba Island and Ha Long Bay he has developed a special bond with the area, which he considers his second home.

He completely understands the lives and aspirations of the local people, that their main desire is to be able to sustain their livelihoods through fishing. That is why, when he first thought about a cruise line, the name Serenity came immediately to mind.
