Surreal Excitement as Star Cruises Launches First-Ever Star Illusions @ Sea

• March 26, 2015

Hong Kong, 25 March, 2015 – Star Cruises, the leading cruise line in Asia-Pacific, is proud to introduce another ‘first’ onboard its fleet with the launch of the Star Illusions @ Sea. The first of its kind on a cruise ship, the Star Illusions @ Sea is based on the popular optical illusion concept of creating three-dimensional (3D) visuals from two-dimensional (2D) paintings using creative art techniques, making these painting illusions highly interactive and enjoyable for the entire family. Star Cruises invites travellers to be among the first in the world to experience the newly constructed Star Illusions @ Sea onboard the Star Cruises fleet, while cruising to exotic destinations in the region.

With the fleet homeported across Asia, Star Cruises promises an out of this world experience with the all new exciting Star Illusions @ Sea, the latest onboard attraction that is bound to add a whole new dimension of fun for travellers of all ages. Homeporting in Keelung (Taiwan), SuperStar Aquarius will be the first to kick-start the launch of the Star Illusions @ Sea on 25 March 2015. Travelling guests cruising from Hong Kong and Singapore can soon enjoy the excitement and wackiness of the Star Illusions @ Sea onboard SuperStar Virgo, Star Pisces and SuperStar Gemini respectively, from 1 April 2015 onwards. SuperStar Libra that is homeported in Penang (Malaysia) will also introduce the onboard attraction to its guests commencing 17 April 2015. The Star Illusions @ Sea onboard the Star Cruises ships will offer a unique experience unlike any other. Instead of housing all the artworks in one designated location, the masterpieces will be sprawled out at different locations throughout each of the ships, creating a sense of adventure, as travellers explore and have fun on the ships in search of the Star Illusions @ Sea’s artworks.

The Scoop on Star Cruises

The Scoop on Star Cruises: Have fun pretending to be a news crew and ‘meet’ the ship’s captain.

“At Star Cruises, we are proud to be the first to introduce and showcase the Star Illusions @ Sea across our fleet, offering our guests a new and refreshing onboard experience all together. We are confident that this latest onboard attraction will be a big hit among travellers and we will continue to innovate, as well as offer new experiences that will make cruising with Star Cruises the ultimate choice of holiday destination” said Mr Ang Moo Lim, Executive Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Hotels of Genting Hong Kong Limited.

The Star Illusions @ Sea offers a non-conventional approach to artwork, providing pure fun for everyone to interact with many eye-popping artworks. The Star Illusions @ Sea is a surreal experience with great activities that will keep travellers both young and old entertained, and perhaps even help them appreciate these painting illusions, which is a form of arts, enhancing their overall journey and holiday experience with Star Cruises.

Before travellers begin their Star Illusions @ Sea adventure, be sure to keep your mobile phones and cameras fully-charged and on standby. Once all is set, get ready to immerse yourself in a world of fun-tastic arts, clicking-away your favourite shots or selfies with many popular Star Illusions @ Sea masterpieces onboard the Star Cruises’ ships. Step into these paintings, strike a creative post and watch these painting illusions come alive with your pictures taken in it. Be part of the illusion and have loads of fun, creating unforgettable pictures and memories with various quirky artworks such as posing with the giant scary octopus that seems to be lost and in need of directions, or simply snap-a-shot of you fishing in the cold and freezing Arctic with your new “cool” buddies, or even act out a fighting scene and show-off your toughness or wimpiness against the macho Kick-boxer.
