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 experience a cruise.
I was onboard the Libra, It has been recently refurbished and everything seems to be working.
However, I felt that it is very much a gambling ship with most of passengers being hardcore gamblers! Usually nowhere to be seen except at the casinoes
