The city’s culture, sports and tourism department said the cruise ship, built in HCM City, has three decks with full recreational facilities and diving services for 198 passengers.
The ship, which was built at a cost of VND50 billion (US$2.2 million), offers days and nights tours along the Han River.
The city has given licences to 29 boats for carrying tourists in the river.
In 2015, the city launched the first five-star cruise ship, Harem2.
According to the department, nearly 300,000 tourists, of which 90,000 are foreigners, booked tours and accommodation in the city for the four-day holiday (from April 29 to May 2), a 30% increase compared with last year.
Four and five-star hotels were up to 80-85% of capacity during the holidays.
