Star Cruises SuperStar Virgo Begins Brand-New Shenzhen Tai Zi Bay Homeport Deployment in November 2016
From 12 November 2016, Star Cruises Flagship SuperStar Virgo will commence a brand new, 3-month Vietnam and Sanya itinerary with Shenzhen Tai Zi Bay as the homeport. Starting with one of the seven Wonders of Nature – Halong Bay, the cruise will travel to Hoi An Ancient Town, the UNESCO World Heritage site in Da Nang; then to Nha Trang – The “Oriental Maldives”, followed by Ho Chi Minh City, the “Little Paris”, and finally to picturesque Sanya, Hainan, offering five iconic sceneries from a convenient location.
Mr. Ang Moo Lim, President of Star Cruises says, “Our flagship, SuperStar Virgo, will be deployed to its brand-new homeport at Tai Zi Bay, Shekou, Shenzhen in November. Tai Zi Bay is located in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macau Big Bay, which enjoys excellent geographical advantages and allows travellers from the Pearl River Delta and the Southwest area to cruise from a convenient location, while travellers from other regions can also enjoy cruise traveling at ease with accessible and comprehensive transportation services.“
Guest experience will be taken up to a new level from April 17 onwards: On the Okinawa cruise departing fromthe double-homeport at Hong Kong and Nansha, Guangzhou, those who stay in Oceanview Stateroom Balconies and above will be entitled to a whole new upgraded experience, including room dining service, free show tickets and more.
