UK cruise passengers looking to explore the wonder of the East can now do it in style following the redeployment of Star Cruises’ SuperStar Virgo to Hong Kong.

The vessel – renowned as the most luxurious in Star Cruises’ Asian fleet – arrived in Hong Kong on April 2, following a repositioning cruise from Singapore and will run a series of sailings out of the Chinese port until October 19.

In this inaugural season, Virgo will operate to Xiamen and Sanya in China and Halong Bay in Vietnam. There will also be four special cruises to Keelung, Taiwan, in April, June, July and September.

Highlight itineraries from the Hong Kong season include a 5-night Sanya, Halong Bay and Xiamen bay cruise only (from �361) and a three-night Keelung cruise-only (from �240).

Mick Dupont, director of sales and marketing Europe, explained:”Moving SuperStar Virgo to Hong Kong has opened up a whole world of opportunity for agents in the UK. As well as offering new destinations to seasoned cruisers, we also hope to attract first-timers keen on exploring this exciting region.”
