SuperStar Virgo to Offer Holiday Concept Cruises This December
Life at sea has never been described perfectly than when Joseph Conrad, a Polish novelist, chronicled it as “enticing, disenchanting, and enslaving.” Even more, this ultimately reminds of the feeling when one sets sail, reveling on the gentle sway of the sea, overlooking the beautiful horizon ahead.

Fortunately, Star Cruises, a lion in the cruise industry in the Asia Pacific, brings back this exact feeling of euphoria by anchoring its crown jewel– the SuperStar Virgo– in Manila, to usher in several Holiday Concept Cruises which will surely be explosive getaway experiences from December 4, 2018, to January 3, 2019!
With a choice of seven destinations, the cruise will embark on a journey to the following tourist destinations in the East!
Vietnam’s Timeless Ha Long Bay & China’s Hawaii, Sanya
To get the adventure up and running, SuperStar Virgo will take its guests to one of UNESCO’s world heritage sites, the Ha Long Bay in Vietnam and the Hawaii of the East, Sanya in China.
Ha Long Bay, as a tranquil destination, is known to sport a collection of unique caves, hills, and valleys, as well as limestone formations due to the many geological evolutions it has surmounted over millions of years.

As if in contrast, the cruise will also take you to Sanya, China, which embodies the energy of its many visitors, bars, and shopping venues gracing Hainan Island. This destination is also known for the Binlang Ethnic Village which introduces its native culture to guests, as well as the city’s night markets and revelries.

With SuperStar Virgo’s deployment at Ha Long Bay and Sanya, enjoy their Concert Cruise Series featuring harmony group, The CompanY, from December 4 to 9, followed by the highly acclaimed Manila Philharmonic Orchestra from December 9 to 14!

The Historical Ho Chi Minh & Nha Trang of Vietnam
Embodying the spirit of the coming festivities, the SuperStar Virgo will be sailing to two destinations made colorful by its past. With its history embedded in the storylines of Miss Saigon (1989), the Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam is now a booming tourist spot, complete with several places to visit, including souvenir and snack markets, as well as the History Museum, the Reunification Palace, and District 1, among others.

Further, as this is the start of the Filipino traditional culture of attending the midnight masses to make way for Christmas, Simbang Gabi will be taken care of by Bro. Bo Sanchez, who will also grace the event with wisdom stored in his sleeves to share with everyone who needs to hear inspirational messages while cruising with your loved ones.
From here, Celebrations at Sea, complemented by grandiose designs, entertainments, and activities inspiriting the atmosphere of the festive season, will be held at sea from December 24 to 29, culminating on December 29 to January 3. Meanwhile, the grand finale cruise with a 5-night journey to either Coron, Palawan, Puerto Princesa, Palawan, or Kota Kinabalu in Malaysia are also among the choices of vacationers with a single departure on January 3, 2019.
