HCM City – Malaysia-based cruise liner Dream Cruises is set to operate a new vessel capable of carrying 3,500 passengers to Việt Nam from November, according to the HCM City-based travel firm Viet Excursions.
The cruise liner is offering two-, five-, and seven-day tours of Việt Nam.
It will make more than 10 trips to ports in the southern province of Bà Riạ - Vũng Tàu, the central cities of Đà Nẵng and Nha Trang, and the northern city of Hạ Long between November and March next year.
Besides Việt Nam, it will also bring passengers from Malaysia and Singapore to China.

The new ship is almost finished and will be launched in October.
Viet Excursions regularly serves tourists coming aboard American and European cruise lines.
Anh said the number of tourists has risen by 10 per cent this year. – VNS
