Ship Facts: SuperStar Virgo Review (by Cruise Critic!)
Disappointing 2nd time round
Having had a wonderful cruise on the Gemini in October '08, we were excited to book again on the Virgo for May '09, but were very disappointed.

Our Gemini cruise was great with wonderful food and entertainment and we met some wonderful crew members who we are still in touch with (Harold, Godie and Marvin).

Our first "surprise" was when we were checking in our bags in Singapore and realised that a certain nationality was extremely pushy and rude - to the extent they manoeuvered their bags from behind me in the queue to actually trying to push in to get to the desk before me! This behaviour continued in all aspects of the cruise, from trying to get out of lifts, to physically pushing their way to get the best seats at the shows, etc etc etc. They were extremely rude to the cabin staff and demanding of all the crew. On this particular cruise they would have made up approximately 2/3 of the pax.

The musicians around the ship were excellent and we loved listening to their music.

Our cabin (with balcony) was lovely, light, and spacious and Maggie, our attendant was lovely.

Having been on a couple of other cruises (incl P&O and previously Gemini), I have to say the shows on this ship were less than inspiring except for Twice as Nice. Shows were repeated on different nights, which has never been the case on other cruises.

I am extremely hesitant to book another Virgo cruise, based on this last one.
