star cruisesStar Cruises, the leading cruise line in Asia-Pacific, will homeport SuperStar Virgo, the largest ship of its Asian fleet, in Hong Kong from April to October 2014. The 75,338-tonne vessel will embark on a six-month seasonal deployment, offering itineraries to Keelung (Taipei), Taichung and Kaohsiung in Taiwan, Sanya in Hainan and Halong Bay in Vietnam.

 

 

The relocation of SuperStar Virgo, with 13 decks and 935 cabins, is a part of Star
Cruises’ on-going strategy for Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, as well as Korea and Japan
markets. Mr. William Ng, Chief Operating Officer – Cruise, Genting Hong Kong, said, “In
view of the growing demand for cruise travel in Asia, we’re pleased to bring our flagship
SuperStar Virgo to Hong Kong. The ship will sail to destinations popular amongst
travellers in the region and serve them with our renowned Asian style hospitality. The
wide array of onboard entertainment, leisure, retail and food & beverage options will
make these cruise holidays memorable for all.”

 

 

Chairman of the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) Dr Peter Lam said, “The HKTB
welcomes Star Cruises’ decision to deploy the luxurious SuperStar Virgo, the biggest
vessel in the cruise line’s Asian fleet, to Hong Kong in 2014, and to arrange various
sailings for the ship between April and October, with Hong Kong as the home port.

 

 

 

This will provide consumers with greater choices and encourage more cruise travellers to
visit Hong Kong. The strategic deployment of SuperStar Virgo by Star Cruises not only   reflects the tremendous potential of the Hong Kong and Greater China tourism markets,
but also helps strengthen Hong Kong’s image as Asia’s cruise hub. The HKTB will
certainly continue working closely with the cruise travel trade and neighbouring ports to
promote Hong Kong’s advantages as a cruise destination, and to attract more cruise
companies to feature Hong Kong in their itineraries.”
