From Atlantis to Rio – Adding whimsical magic to your soul

• March 6, 2014

Hong Kong, 27 February, 2014 — Every ship of Star Cruises is a world-class theatre in its own right. There is nowhere better to catch dazzling live entertainment as the leading cruise line in Asia-Pacific presents stunning production shows from entertainment capitals around the world such as Paris, London, Berlin, and St Petersburg.

To make every cruise holiday a magical experience for our passengers, Star Cruises’ dedicated and talented entertainment team has prepared a splendid line-up of performances for 2014, ranging from dance to magic and from acrobat to Kung Fu. Wait no longer to catch these highly anticipated debuts and returning favourites with newer and even more dazzling choreography.

SuperStar Virgo

Stone of Atlantis | SuperStar Virgo

“Stone of Atlantis” staged on SuperStar Virgo is a tale set in the lost ancient city of Atlantis. Hidden deep in the city, the legendary Stone of Atlantis is imbued with incredible power. Dive into the myth as we conjure the power of the stone with a world-class ensemble of performers including sensational American violinist Bryson Andres, Shaolin Kung Fu masters, Pantera Duo from Russia and acrobatic group Trilogy from Ukraine. Their breathtaking acts will leave the audience exhilarated and astounded.

From now until mid October, European top illusionist Vincent Vignaud will star in “Dream”, a magnificent spectacle of grand illusions featuring exceptional new acts. Driven by his fascination with circus and his passion for magic and illusions, Vignaud surprises the audience with his incredible acts perfectly complemented by superb music, choreography and stage effects.

SuperStar Gemini


In “Hot! Hot! Hot! A Brazilian Show” debuting in April, beautiful Brazilian dancers will showcase signature dance styles such as Samba, Capoeira and Salsa in flamboyant costumes. Get off your seat and groove to the exuberant music while enjoying the dynamic whimsical dance show of pure energy and colours and diverse motions. Their Latin dance techniques, combined with the impressive performances of European acrobats, will leave the crowd stunned and their jaws dropped.

SuperStar Aquarius


Also starting April, SuperStar Aquarius will present the magnificent production of a romantic fairytale “Somewhere in Time”. The captivating search for one’s true love through the wonders of time is highlighted by an array of fascinating stuns as it takes the audience to a world where anything is possible. Inspired by magic and legends, the show is set in a place full of secrets and endless dreams.

SuperStar Libra


“Simply the Best” lives up to its names and beyond. The show is a spectacular feast of dance and acrobatic wonders performed by highly skilled acrobats and talented Star Cruises dancers from Europe including a world class Spanish ballroom duo.

Star Pisces


Award-winning Italian magician Ernesto Planas takes you on the magical adventure “Spellbound”. Witness the enthralling magic and illusions as he takes on a quest as a heroic wizard helping a young girl to become the world’s best acrobat. Featuring the amazing block juggling act of Marta Paley from Russia and the incredible mix of music brought to life by the fabulous Star Cruises dancers, the show will definitely leave you spellbound.

Besides our in-house production shows, lucky guests will have the chance to attend the concerts of hit Hong Kong stars in March and April. Catch Cantopop legend Francis Yip on SuperStar Virgo on 12 April for her rendition of unforgettable timeless classics.

“Korean Wave at Sea” coming to Star Cruises

• March 6, 2014

Urban luxury on SuperStar Virgo Star Cruises upgrades cabins and shopping experience  for its Asian flagship

Hong Kong, 25 February, 2014 – Are you craving Korean cuisine, K-pop, K-culture and all things Korean? Join us onboard and let Star Cruises bring Korea to you on the high seas. The leading cruise line in Asia-Pacific will host “Korean Wave at Sea” themed cruises across its fleet from 7 March to 30 March. Regardless of your preferred destinations, everyone can revel in the best of Korea.

SuperStar Virgo, currently homeported in Singapore and sailing to Malacca, Phuket, Penang, Langkawi and Kuala Lumpur, will spearhead the Korean festival by launching a host of tantalising F&B promotions. Korean food will be served at Mediterranean Terrace, specially decorated for this occasion, on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights. Many authentic and fusion Korean items such as Bul-go-gi and Kimchi Fried Rice, specially prepared by Korean guest chefs, will be added to the appealing menus of Noble House Chinese Restaurant, Samurai Japanese Restaurant and the 24/7 Blue Lagoon. To unwind with your friends, grab a Korea-inspired drink, Korean beer, rice wine or soju for a relaxing nightcap.

You may also take home a slice of Korea by picking up a cooking tip or two from our Korean guest chefs. At the al fresco poolside Taverna Bar on the open deck, the chefs will showcase authentic Korean cooking and share their techniques with passengers after the sail away party of each cruise. Throughout your journey, multiple decks will be transformed into a Dongdaemum-inspired Korean bazaar where delightful and enticing Korean food and snacks will be sold for your ultimate enjoyment.

To delight passengers with an all-round experience, SuperStar Virgo has prepared a strong lineup of themed onboard entertainment and activities. K-pop fans should not miss the captivating performance of Korean Sopranos singers and the “K-Pop Bingo”, where they can meet and greet the lookalikes of superstars such as PSY, Wonder Girls, and Super Junior. Our cruise staff will also teach the line dancing steps of hit K-pop songs. In addition, Korean movies will be screened at The Lido Theatre for those drawn to the unique, mesmerising and artistic performance of Korean actors and divas.

To gain more insights into Korean traditions, watch the “Korean Wave Fashion Runway” where models will showcase their flawless beauty in Korean costumes in a catwalk. They will also demonstrate the proper way of donning the elegant, layered “Hanbok” costumes. Other Korean-themed programme highlights include basic conversational Korean classes, paper fan, mask and lantern making sessions, and fun-filled board game challenges, etc.

Other than SuperStar Virgo, mouthwatering Korean delicacies will be served fleet wide throughout the Korean festival. From 7 April to 26 October, SuperStar Virgo will embark on its Hong Kong homeport deployment, offering the 4D3N cruise to Kaohsiung and Taichung, the 4D3N cruise to Sanya and HalongBay, and the 1-night high seas getaway every week.

Star Cruises Orders Second Mega Ship Specially for Asia

• February 24, 2014

Genting Hong Kong Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay
signs the ship building contract with Meyer Werft Managing Partner Bernard Meyer.

Hong Kong, 17 February, 2014 — Star Cruises, the leading cruise line in Asia-Pacific, has commissioned shipbuilder Meyer Werft in Germany to build another new mega cruise ship, the second order in four months. This 150,000-tonne vessel will bring Star Cruises’ Asian fleet to nine ships upon its delivery in fall 2017.

The Euro 697.2 million (HKD 7.359 billion) new build will be a sister ship to the last ship Star Cruises ordered in October 2013. It will be approximately 330 metres in length and accommodate 3305 passengers in lower berths in 1,682 cabins with a maximum capacity of over 4,500.

This second new build will further consolidate Star Cruises’ leading position in Asia and strengthen its market penetration in the region. The construction of these two ships is in line with Star Cruises’ long-term strategy in modernizing and expanding its fleet. With a speed of up to 24 knots, the ship can exercise great flexibility in serving a large number of exciting itineraries. Like the sister ship to be delivered in fall 2016, the new ship will be designed to cater to the unique preferences of Asian cruisers and enable Star Cruises to take advantage of the growing demand for cruise travel in Asia-Pacific. It will be a mega cruise ship that Asia truly deserves.

Meyer Werft, which will build both new ships, constructed Star Cruises’ first new build, SuperStar Leo, in 1998, and its sister ship SuperStar Virgo, which will be on a seasonal homeport deployment in Hong Kong from April to October 2014.

On Star Cruises, every journey is a voyage of discovery and surprise.
