“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.

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

Sea, Sand, Sun and Scenic Spectaculars SuperStar Virgo sails to Sanya and Halong Bay

• February 11, 2014

Hong Kong, 5 February, 2014 – Explore the tropical rainforest of Sanya and sail through the emerald green waters of Halong Bay with Super Star Virgo. Star Cruises, the leading cruise line in Asia-Pacific, offers a dozen spectacular shore excursions to China’s southernmost paradise and Vietnam’s UNESCO World Heritage Site to passengers cruising out from Hong Kong this summer.

Between 7 April and 26 October, SuperStar Virgo, Star Cruises’ flagship in Asia, will be setting sail for Sanya and Halong Bay weekly from Hong Kong on a 4D3N itinerary. The trips will showcase the natural wonders of these sunny and gorgeous destinations and the authentic favors of local cuisines.

Sanya: the Hawaii of China

The 1,506-hectare Yalong Bay Tropical Paradise Rainforest Park,
set in the hillsides looking over the resort district, is the first national forest park in Hainan.

Sanya’s powdery-white, squeaky-clean beaches and azure waters were extensively featured in Chinese blockbuster “If You Are the One 2”. The Tropic Tour will take you to Yalong Bay, the number one bay in China where the Chinese romantic comedy was filmed. Stretching 7,500 kilometers in length, the half-moon bay in the southern end of Hainan is a heaven for sunbathers looking for the perfect white velvet sand to rest on. Do not miss the trip to Yalong Bay Tropical Paradise Rainforest Park, which is set in the hillsides looking over the resort district. The 1,506-hectare national forest park is the first of its kind in Hainan. The park is ideal for tourist activities like mountain climbing, outdoor exploration, sightseeing, science education and folk customs experience. The tour is inclusive of a Hainan style lunch featuring four famous dishes of the province for you to see, feel and taste the best of Hainan in one go.

On the End of the Earth Tour, travellers will visit this must see spot of Hainan, once believed to be most remote spot on Earth, for its glorious ocean view and rich history. Since ancient times, many historical figures, officials and scholars have left their footprints there and carved poems on those rocks standing on the seashore. To get a bird’s eye view of downtown Sanya, go up the LuhuitouPark located in LuhuitouPeninsula. It covers five hills with a total area of 82.88 hectares and a highest elevation reaching 181 meters.  The hilltop is noted for being an excellent place to catch the sunrise and sunset. The tour also includes a scrumptious seafood lunch at a local hotel.

Other splendid selection includes the Li and Miao Ecological Cultural Tour (with coconut lunch), the Nanshan Temple Tour (with vegetarian lunch), the Golf Tour, and the transfer service to Summer Mall.

Halong Bay: one of the new seven wonders of the world

Thousands of limestone karsts and isles in various sizes and shapes will leave you in awe when
SuperStar Virgo cruises into Halong Bay, which was voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2011.

Thousands of limestone karsts and isles in various sizes and shapes will leave you in awe when SuperStar Virgo cruises into Halong Bay, which was voted as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2011. Many of our tours will take travellers to the UNESCO World Heritage Site on sightseeing boats so that they can get up close to the gorgeous limestone mountains and cliffs jutting from the calm waters. To capture more picturesque scenic beauty, choose our Cave Tour to explore the Heavenly Cave located in the southwest of Halong Bay. Acclaimed as the most beautiful primitive cave of the stunning bay, Heavenly cave has a unique system of stalactites and stalagmites in different forms and shapes.

For an alternative cultural experience, join the Ha Nam Village Tour. At Ha Nam Village, you can admire the peaceful landscape and immerse in the simplistic local life by learning how to make bamboo boats and fish net handicrafts. You may also join the Land & Cruise Tour to visit the Royal Amusement Park, where you can enjoy a blend of modern and ancient performing arts through watching the Water Puppet Show and the traditional music and dance performances.

Other Halong Bay “Irresistible Excursions” include the Cruise & Land Tour, the Titop Island Tour, and the Close up of Halong Bay Tour.

From 7 April to 26 October, SuperStar Virgo will be offering a 4D3N cruise to Sanya and Halong Bay, a 4D3N cruise to Kaohsiung and Taichung, and a 1-night high seas cruise every week from Hong Kong. Holidaymakers wishing to extend the trip and prolong the fun can go on a monthly 7D6N cruise to Keelung (Taipei), Kaohsiung, and Taichung.

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