Superstar Virgo- Fun round the clock

What a fun it is to be on Cruise. Every day you wake up to a new city to explore. We boarded SuperStar Virgo which started from Singapore to cover Phuket in Thailand, Langkawi in Malaysia and journey back to Singapore. With host of activities on the cruise, you would not get any moment of time to be in your cabin. The cruise houses Activity Center for fun games, Lido which organizes plays/shows, Galaxy of Stars where you can do some foot tapping  through the night, swimming pool, duty free mini shopping area, gym, spa and lots of the dining options with live music.

Mid-week of December was too welcoming in terms of climate and with fab ambience and decor, the cruise was all set to ring in the Christmas celebration. You will find many Indians on the cruise and to facilitate them by all means possible, they provide with varied Indian food options as well host Bollywood nights.

We had booked balcony cabin and as a part of package, we were given food and beverage credit, which we could redeem anytime during our stay. Staying on cruise offered mix of relaxation and frolic time. How frugal is happiness when you see calm ocean all around you, moon that lies fair and right in front of you with each breathe of wet, briny air.

On our first day, all excited to explore the cruise, we started to climb floors to discover every corner of it. We were too gripped with the beautification initiated on the cruise. Spent some time at the open air bar followed with espying restaurants located on different floors and concluded with disc.

They organize for a formal get together on one of the days for all the guests on cruise which offer a great platform to everlasting bond with community of like minded adventurers. For this day, considering the theme, you can opt to stock a decent formal wear.

Making most of the beverage credit ;)

The day following, time flew with our over indulgence in exotic cuisines and endless dining options, and then early evening our cruise halted in Phuket, Thailand. We were given timeslot of 5-6 hours to explore the streets of Phuket, and we chose Bangla Road, near Patong Beach, the more happening it gets with every hour passing. This street transforms into a large market where all roads become all crammed up with stalls selling handicrafts, beach wear, leisure wear, scarves and again, bargaining works wonders here as well J

This street offers much from dining with loud live music to head to toe massage to patrolling of and performances by pole dancers to colourful lighting across the stalls.


Early third day came the announcement of halt at Langkawi, Malaysia and we had 7-8 hours in hand to make the most of our tour. Malaysia is an archipelago of islands and on the northwest shore are Langkawi Islands. Beaches scattered all over and lush green surrounding enhances the wonders of the island. 





We headed to Yellow CafĂ© which stands out for its hip decor with chairs, tables and hammocks in varied shades of yellow.  


Yellow, Red &  Blue makes an awesome view..

Don’t leave Malaysia without drinking from a frozen coconut. Coconut water is deliciously refreshing and thirst quenching. The best place to find coconuts is on the beach.



And then we ended up doing parasailing for odd 15-20 minutes an ideal excursion for a special sea-air activity

By the time we reached on curise, it was time to have sumptuous dinner and hit for the bollywood night special.

3 nights and 4 days on cruise went by too quick, needless to mention, every moment was worth every penny spent.

Point to be noted:

1.       Carry one formal attire on cruise for the day of formal gathering
2.       Make most of your food and beverage credit.
3.       Christmas is the best time to be on cruise, considering fab decorations on board.
4.       Carry medicines to avoid sea sickness.
5.       Poolside restaurants have more beverage options.
