February 4, 2014 Cruise No Comments Email Email

Star Cruises, the leading cruise line in Asia-Pacific, invites travellers to come aboard SuperStar Gemini for a relaxing journey. Unwind in traditional and cultural activities in Kuantan and explore the picturesque beauty of Pulau Tioman, a tropical island paradise set amidst South China Sea.
From 6 April to 19 October 2014, the 50,764-tonne ship will sail from Singapore every other Sunday to Kuantan and Pulau Redang, and every other Wednesday to Pulau Tioman.

Kuantan is a modern town and the capital of Pahang Darul Makmur, a beautiful state on the east coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Here, you can escape the hustle of city life but still get to enjoy all the pleasure of modern living. 250x250TICBanner

Set amidst the South China Sea, Pulau Redang and Pulau Tioman lures visitors with its crystal clear blue waters, pure white sands, swaying coconut trees, and a sense of excitement and mystery pervading the islands. Visitors will be enchanted by some of the most beautiful corals and a world of spectacular seascapes as they go diving and snorkeling. Declared as Marine Parks to preserve the
islands’ natural beauty, Pulau Redang and Pulau Tioman are the best places to just relax and soak in the sun.

This is a snapshot of the unique excursions that SuperStar Gemini passengers can enjoy.

A look into the Royal Life
Located on the banks of the Pahang River 50 km south of Kuantan, Pekan is the royal town of the state of Pahang Darul Makmur. In the middle of the town, visitors can study the fine architecture of buildings of yesteryears and places of historic significance including the Royal Palace of the Sultan of Pahang and Sultan Abu Bakar Museum (Pahang State Museum). It offers visitors a rare glimpse into the lives of the royal family and certainly serves as a great place to learn more about the customs, traditions and heritage of the royalty.

Witness the Glorious Era of Sungai Lembing
Once known as the El Dorado of East, Sungai Lembing is an old mining town 42 km northwest of Kuantan in Pahang. The tin mine in Sungai Lembing was once the deepest and longest underground mine in the world. The mine is preserved in its most natural and original condition. Visitors will have the chance to ride “the Minecraft” to enter the mine and take a close look at the various collections of mining paraphernalias used in underground mining when they tour the Sungai Lembing Museum.

Get an Insight into the Local Malay Village Life
The Cherating Village and Kuantan City Tour offers visitors a chance to experience a laid-back life style rich in traditional and cultural elements. Observe various local activities like top spinning and coconut plucking performed by monkeys. Fly the Malaysian kite on the stunning long beach of Cherating, where you can also purchase various crafts and souvenirs made with pandanus leaves.

Teluk Chempedak is one of Kuantan’s main sightseeing attractions for visitors. The nature of its enclosed bay makes it perfect for water sports activities. The many restaurants and stalls lining the shore serve a wide variety of food and beverages as well as local handicrafts and souvenirs.

Leisure Dive in Renggis
Dive around the coast of Pulau Renggis and be mesmerized by the beauty of the underwater world that awaits you. Experience the thrill of breathing underwater and enjoy a close up view of the diverse and colorful variety of marine life under the clear water. Take the glass bottom boat if you wish to enjoy the spectacular underwater views without getting your feet wet. This boat offers you a chance to see for yourself the full myriad of colorful fish and the incredible formations of coral reefs surrounding Pulau Renggis.
