Ship Facts: SuperStar Virgo Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Quality Ship, operating in Asia.
We have cruised on Virgo 7 times over the years so we understand that the ship is operating in Asia and is designed and structured for Asian passengers. Many western people clearly do not understand this and complain about many things which are "normal" in Asia.

The ship was refurbished in January this year and is now in excellent condition and really is a high quality ship with many wow factor facilities. The only disappointment for us was that they did not do much to the balcony cabins, only new carpet and curtains. The beds in these rooms are very low and not very comfortable for 6 foot plus Australians.

The food on this ship is not to HAL or RCL standard but is still good with enough variety to satisfy. The Asian restaurants are very good as you would expect. They do charge for everything apart from the inclusive restaurants and there is no free burger/pizza bar like on most ships, it is very good but you have to pay, however prices are reasonable. If you book a balcony cabin you receive a S$400 F & B credit which should cover all costs.

Another thing to be mindful of is this ship has a heavy reliance on gambling and the locals do enjoy it. The upside of this is that the gambling areas are quite busy but the rest of the ship is relatively quiet.

Other passengers cruise to enjoy the buffet, others the pool area so work this out early and you will enjoy the facilities much better.

In summary we really enjoy this ship, it is a quality ship with excellent and attentive crew and the destinations are great. So if you understand that the majority of passengers will be Asian with different habits etc you will enjoy the experience of interacting with the different cultures.
