The 5th Annual Wine & Dine Cruise will set sail from Bai Chay in Halong Bay, Vietnam, on 30 May 2009.

The black-tie event has become a popular event within Vietnam's high-society and expatriate scene, with ambassadors and business people filling the roster annually.

“It’s a cinematic experience,” said Kurt Walter, general manager of the Press Club. “To see people in black tie promenading the decks, with the karsts looming all around and the immaculate white eminence of the Emeraude as a backdrop, is stunning. No other word for it.”

Beyond the cruise itself, the headline event of the outing is a four-course winemaker’s dinner, hosted by Loire Valley vintner Pascal Jolivet and held within the limestone grotto of Drum Cave.

After dinner, DJ Bruno pumps up the volume with his unique blend of jazz, funk and house music.

The $195 per person fare includes all meals, from breakfast at the Press Club to lunch and breakfast aboard the Emeraude and the gala banquet in Drum Cave, as well as select drinks at various occasions throughout the cruise.

Passengers may also avail themselves of the Emeraude’s kayaks and other sports equipment. A morning tai chi class on the vessel’s sundeck is also part of the all-inclusive package.

The 5th Annual Wine & Dine Cruise Classic is jointly sponsored by Carlsberg, Johnnie Walker, the Press Club and the Warehouse.
