Design Elements on Board Bonsai Legacy


Life is all about forming lasting memories: an embrace with a loved one; a moment of adventure; a new discovery.

Design concept – Bonsai Legacy

The visual creator of the ship is Asiatique Design. Established in 2001, Asiatique has built its reputation on creativity and its high standard of quality. “The goal is to restore and promote the traditional crafts of South East Asia, especially those of Vietnam, by endorsing the country’s unique local materials and craftsmanship”. Aline Ho, the project leader and founder of Asiatique Design says, passion is the key word that drives us to move forward. Every project is a work of art. The Bonsai has a soul and leaves a lingering impression on the beholder. “Our partners are artists, whose inspirations blossom from within a project. This is what defines our out-of-the-box creativity. We are keen to ensure that the legacy of the Bonsai continues and welcoming you with warm colors and locally sourced materials you will immediately be put at ease where Ancient Indochina meets French savior-faire.

Asiatique design was inspired by the cruise owners passion and enthusiasm for the country and the dinner cruise scene in Saigon. The interior designer has taken on the challenge to recreate the classic Indochine feel, while stepping up in creative design. The upper and lower decks of the vessel are dedicated to the buffet dining, while the terrace deck offers a panoramic view of the charming cosmopolitan Saigon skyline

Prior to the main buffet event, passengers are welcomed with signature cocktails and performances from the Philippines band, or they can reminisce in the rhythm of traditional Vietnamese music. Asiatique Design has gone the extra mile in all decks with interactive live cooking stations and meticulous interior design – all to ensure memorable moments for foreign visitors and local diners alike.
