MANILA, Philippines – If there is a cosmopolitan city outside the country that Filipino travelers know by heart, it is Hong Kong. We all know the drill: the city bus transfer or the airport express train from Chek Lap Kok Airport to destinations like Disneyland Resort, Central and Kowloon’s Tsim Sha Tsui (for weekend shoppers), stopping only at the hotel to check in the luggage, which some have already mastered to a complete science, and on to the wonderful world of shopping, walking and a lot of pedestrian-, taxi- and double-decker-bus-dodging.
Of course, there are the usual side trips: Victoria Harbor, Avenue of the Stars, Pedder Street, Wan Chai, and even the largely out-of-the-way Victoria Peak making up the ultimate utopian checklist to complete an HK weekend—until your leg cramps get the best of you. So, you’ll probably soak like tea in the hotel bathtub for the remaining duration of your trip, rendered somehow incapacitated until your return flight.
But what if there is a totally different way to experience Hong Kong? Where the feet get rested for once, traded for good old sea legs? Where shopping and dining merge with the exciting ding-ding-ding of the slot machines? And where, just for a weekend, you can leave the stress, anticipation, and anxiety back on the docks, and get treated to a luxurious getaway on the open seas? This is certainly what Star Cruises had in mind when, in 1993, they developed the Star Pisces, and they haven’t dropped the anchor since.
Pioneering the cruising industry in the Asia and the Pacific, Star Pisces is the eldest in the cruise company’s six-ship fleet, after having gone multiple facelifts (with a recent one that started on Feb. 26 until March 22), we all know older is definitely wiser. The Star Pisces rounds up the dining, shopping, and gaming experiences one would usually find in their trips to Hong Kong and Macau, but makes it as simple as an elevator ride through all its 12-stories
