Star Cruises Deploys SuperStar Aquarius To Taiwan

Asian cruise giant Star Cruises has announced that it will deploy the 1,530-passenger SuperStar Aquarius to Taiwan for the summer sailing season. Previously operating out of Hong Kong, the ship recently underwent a month-long refurbishment to update the onboard facilities before arriving in Kaohsiung on 6 April 2011.


Short Cruises to Southern Japan

During her deployment, SuperStar Aquarius will operate a series of short itineraries between Taiwan and the Japanese southern islands. These include 2-, 3- and 4-night roundtrip cruises from Keelung, with calls at Ishigaki, Naha and Yonagumi, as well as 2-night sailings visiting Hualien and 1-night getaways to waters east of Taiwan.


US$ 1.6 million Refurbishment and Enhancement

As part of Star Cruises’ ongoing fleet upgrade, SuperStar Aquarius received a new graphic design of a beautiful maiden cradling a vase filled with the treasures of the sea on her hull, visibly enhancing the exterior. Inside, her cabins and staterooms were revitalized with new carpeting and upholstery, while her dining outlets and concepts, such as the Dynasty Chinese Restaurant and the new Lagoon Bar, have been redesigned to cater to fun-loving Taiwanese guests.


For recreation and entertainment, the ship’s driving range has been refurbished and complemented with a new, 18-hole mini golf putting green on the open deck, while the Skyline Karaoke Lounge, Stardust Lounge and Star Club caters to guests who prefer to stay indoors. Star Cruises has also partnered The Valiram Group to retail some of the world’s most desirable and exclusive luxury goods at the Star Boutique.


Star Cruises currently operates a fleet of 4 ships around Asia, including the recently refurbished Star Pisces out of Hong Kong, the 1,480-passenger SuperStar Libra from Penang and her flagship, the 75,338-GRT SuperStar Virgo.
