Star Hong Kong Cruise Reviews

On the tour bus in Sanya, China, I saw this. Is that like a Grab Taxi? Zebr

First Time Cruiser

Age 50s

Don't waste your money. I chose this cruise because it started and ended in HK, where my son lives and we were looking forward to a short XMas family holiday together, visiting Vietnam. I had never been on a cruise, but so many people told me that it's a great way to see different places, without much extra expense, nor the hassle of moving from hotel to hotel and that the food is always ...

I took this 7-night cruise Hong Kong-China-Vietnam and it was a most pleasant trip. I have cruised on Star Cruises many times but this cruise is different. Ever innovative (Star Cruises pioneered the freestyle cruising concept, NCL, previously owned by them, is only a follower) but now they are doing non-inclusive meals instead. The idea is not cutting back but it gives cruisers even better free ...

I never write reviews but felt compelled to this time. I read the reviews on Star Cruises before we sailed with them. Having cruised before in different parts of the world, I thought it would be nice to travel with an Asian cruise line through Asian countries, even though I had read some bad reviews. What a big mistake that was. We knew it would be challenging, but had no idea just how hard it ...

Crap Cruise with Chinese takeover

We had previously sailed on Superstar Virgo 10 years ago from Singapore and had an enjoyable cruise so that when we saw that cruise on the same ship that left from Hong Kong were thought that this would be terrific. How wrong could we be. This has been taken over by Chinese company and caters primarily for Chinese tourists. We were not given any pre-travel documentation or advice and had to ...

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 was not expecting so much to have changed in such a short time. I booked through an agent and there were some issues from the start. When I booked in ...

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 also some Mainland Chinese, but as always there are small groups of other nationals on such a cruise on Star and the ship's first language is actually English. ...

Age 40s

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 itinerary means we (my wife and I) only need to take one day off from work. Embarkation is quite smooth but Ocean Terminal in Hong Kong is crowded. It only took ...

Star Virgo - Poor excuse for a cruise

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 happen. The one lounge/bar is empty most of the time and there is little entertainment. Generally by around 10,30 pm there is nothing to entertain than gambling. They have ...

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 Hong Kong for different waters would give us a similar experience with different destinations. I booked this online direct with the cruise line from Australia ...

First Time Cruiser

This was our 10th cruise...first cruise in Asia. The only cruiseline with an embarkation port anywhere in Taiwan is Star Cruiseline, hence, our choice to sail on the Superstar Libra. This is a very old (entered service in 1988) and very small ship (in comparison to today's newly built ships), however, it is a very well maintained ship! The ship has 2 main sit-down dining rooms, a buffet, a ...
