Star Cruises Unveil Sanya-Based Itineraries For SuperStar Aquarius

Asian cruise operator Star Cruises has announced it will reposition the 1,530-passenger SuperStar Aquarius to homeport in Sanya for 5 months from November 2011. Coinciding with the vessel’s relocation, the line also unveiled a variety of itineraries designed to showcase the waters of the South China Sea and neighbouring Vietnam.


2-night Da Nang/Halong Bay Cruises

Taking advantage of Sanya’s proximity to Vietnam, SuperStar Aquarius will sail a series of 2-night alternating cruises to Da Nang and Halong bay. Guests have the opportunity to spend an evening enjoying the onboard facilities at sea before arriving in Vietnam the next morning. A full day is set aside for exploring Da Nang or Halong Bay, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before guests return to the ship in the evening.


3-night Halong Bay, Hue Cruise

The ship will also offer a longer 3-night itinerary combining the scenic beauty of Halong Bay with a port call in Hue. A former imperial capital of the Nguyen Dynasty, guests will be able to visit the various historic monuments including the royal Citadel and the demilitarized zone from the Vietnam War.


SuperStar Aquarius’ deployment to Hainan Island reflects Star Cruises’ strategy of regularly refreshing the cruise experience with different vessels within its fleet. The move follows the ship’s stay earlier this year in Taiwan, from where she spent 7 months sailing to culturally rich destinations in Southern Japan.
