Star Cruises is credited with almost single-handedly developing the cruise industry in the Asia-Pacific region. Its foray into the global shipping market has allowed it to tap into lucrative and more mature markets in North America and Europe. Its services cater to Asian passengers as well as to North Americans, Europeans and Australians interested in Asian destinations.

We were fortunate to enjoy Star Cruise Virgo where we enjoyed every detail of the ship for a first-time cruiser like us.

We would like to help you enjoy the star cruises too so we thought of answering some questions you may want to consider.

The ship has a lot of cabins you may choose from and rate depends on the area.

Our cabin was the balcony where we enjoyed the view of the Navy-blue ocean we consider heaven. Also, it offers a generous outdoor space, a separate living area and plenty of luxurious touches, such as ensuite bathrooms, mini-fridges and flat-screen televisions.

Other cabin options include Oceanview cabins, Inside cabins, and suites as well.

Dining

We consider Super Star Virgo for a high quality of their cuisine. On board, we enjoyed our barbeque during sunset along with other cruiser. The ship has a lot of specialty restaurants and restaurants that serve mostly Asian foods which is no surprise on our palate. During my stay, I got to try some seafood delights such as the Green Mussels, Boston Lobster, and Sweet Prawn for lunch. For dessert, I had the Choux Swan Berry Chantilly and Double Dutch Chocolate Cheese Squares.

The ship serves breakfast, lunch and dinner indoor and outdoor which is perfect indulgence to satisfy your craving day or night. We recommend for you to try everything they serve and to order a lot of their Guava juice.

Entertainment

While on board, you too will get the chance to enjoy series of shows. Our team was able to witness a magic show. There was another show we failed to attend but base on what we heard, it was also worth to see.

Recreation

The ship has available fitness equipment’s for work out buff cruisers. If you don’t want to miss your daily work out, no need to worry because there are equipment’s available on board. You can also do your cardio while running outside grasping fresh salty air and attaining a good tan during shore excursion. The craft also carry an outdoor pool, Jacuzzi which we lost count, Basketball and Golf ground and spa treatments. If shopping is your definition of convenience, they have a duty free and stores inside where you can buy “Pasalubong” after.

Family

One of our favorite was the fact that you get to bond with your family while on board. The ship has recreational room and play area for kids to which we think parents can also share. The library and writing room was what we like the most. It was quiet, the books are enticing and the set up was calming. What is more interesting than reading and writing facing the blue ocean anyway? It was truly kick back and relax experience for the family.

Service

I must say that I have experienced a 100% unbelievable level of service. One of our colleagues forgot her camera while using the powder room. One of the cabin crew found and declared the camera. With us almost hopeless and feeling helpless, the crew assisted us all through security office to help us find our missing valuable. Imagine that it was not the quality of service we’ve come to expect but the ship was equipped with CCTV that will help you find your precious belongings.

Added to service, the ship is equipped with elevators which will take you to anywhere you like with this 13-decked craft. Guests can remain active without negotiating to the stairs!

If that’s not cool enough and you want to experience a mix of cosmopolitan cultures Star Cruises’ SuperStar Virgo is recommended for you! Cabin crews from different part of Asia are very accommodating and welcoming. Facilities are functioning very well and Onboarding and offboarding was well ordered.
