This was my second cruise on Superstar Virgo. I went last November when they travelled around Australia and enjoyed it so much, that I went back. I knew that it would be different, and expected the passengers to be primarily Chinese, but ... Read more

Star Cruises??? What do we think???? We wouldn't cruise with them again. To start off, before the cruise we could not get any cruise or port information from the company. We couldn't check in on line until 7 days before we left Sydney. ... Read more

Sailed November 2015
The short cruise was 4-nights from Hong Kong visiting Taiwan, and it could serve as a convenient short 'trip away from trip' for visitors to Hong Kong. Passengers are, predominantly, more than 90%, Chinese, mostly Hong Kong residents but ... Read more

We are a group of five with 3 elderly people staying in two cabins. We chose this cruise because it is on special offer, for about US$300 per person all inclusive. The elderly think it is good because they don't have to fly. Also the ... Read more

If you are not Asian this is not the ship for you. Star Virgo has been turned into a ship catering predominantly to the Asian to gamble. Norma cruise culture of cocktails, dinner, musical entertainment and dancing just doesn’t ... Read more

We have sailed on many cruise lines over the years and last year travelled on this same ship when she departed from Singapore. We chose to sail again on her as she is the only Star Cruise line ship with a balcony and felt that leaving from ... Read more

Star cruise operates several cruises around South East Asia catered mainly for passengers from Singapore, Malaysia and Hongkong. Some of these cruises can be quite inexpensive and offers something like a sampler for people who have never ... Read more

We have sailed on Virgo many times over the years but not for 18 months so we were interested to see what if anything had changed. Embarkation was as usual, you need patience but you get on in a reasonable time. We had a balcony cabin on ... Read more

We had taken SuperStar Libra cruise because our children wanted to, they had quite good experience of the previous cruises (this is our sixth cruise, but first time on SuperStar Libra). To us, however, it was a disappointing cruise, we ... Read more

As reasonably experienced cruisers from New Zealand, we thought we were prepared for what this ship had to offer based on reviews read, but in reality the whole trip was a surprise! I should say to begin, we were surprised to discover ... Read more

We booked this cruise on a package that was too good to refuse. There were six of us altogether, most of whom had cruised before but not on the Virgo. Our cruise was 5 nights, stopping at Redang, Koh Samui and Bangkok. We had booked 3 ... Read more

This was to be an introduction to cruising for my husband. We enjoyed the short itinerary which made it easy to fit into our busy lives. The cost was very reasonable and made better value by the balcony class cabin credit which we used ... Read more

Virgo is a good cruise ship, diverse cross section of travellers good selection of food. Cabins were smaller than we had experienced previously (ie on Princess), but OK. Rooms could be noisy as walls are not that sound proof and the ... Read more

The first point is that they kept the Passport while on board. We have travelled to Malaysia Shore excursion without a passport in hand. This is grossly illegal. Even while we travelled to Malaysia, there is no immigration stamp on out ... Read more

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 ... Read more
