Hong Kong 15 September, 2014 – Star Cruises, the leading cruise line in Asia-Pacific is pleased to introduce an all new culinary destination in Hong Kong – SuperStar Virgo. A series of ongoing enhancement programmes will see new dining options added onboard the 13-storey high SuperStar Virgo, offering an unrivalled gastronomy experience at sea.

The culinary adventure begins with the unveiling of a new restaurant, The Genting Palace Restaurant, a hallmark of fine-dining quality, serving both Western and Chinese cuisines. In conjunction with the launch in October 2014, our renowned and popular chefs, led by Chef Reinhard Mammes, will launch Simply the Best: Seafood, Chops and Steaks. Food lovers will be spoilt for choice with tastefully created cuisines from across the seven seas, skillfully prepared with the freshest ingredients.

Other must-try signature dishes also include the Grilled Red Snapper, Lobster Thermidor, Roasted Yellow Corn Spring Chicken and the Angel Hair Pasta with Lobster.

Seafood, Chops and Steaks’ prime selection, offering an eclectic choice of good quality dining experiences for our guests” said Mr Ang Moo Lim, Executive Vice President Sales, Marketing and Hotel Operations, Genting Hong Kong Limited.

The poolside theme snack bar, Taverna will also soon introduce a new menu with popular Asian and International snacks to whet cruisers’ appetites. Getting a late night bite of a Japanese Seafood Gyoza or a Chicken Yakitori has never been more tempting; snacking on a Chinese Crispy Fried Pork and Shrimp Wanton, never more comforting. For something light but a little spicy, the Deep Fried Fish Cake with Thai Chili Sauce is worth a try. If sandwiches and burgers are anyone’s cravings, Taverna’s new menu will appeal, with the introduction of one of the widest range of delicious burgers including the Angus Beef Burger, Bacon Cheese Burger, Blue Ribbon Cheese Burger, Tex-Mex Burger, the special Virgo Club Sandwich, as well as the famous BBQ Steak Sandwich.

With these and the 10 dining options to choose from, cruisers will be wise to leave calories counters at home. Come onboard the new culinary destination, SuperStar Virgo.
