Cruise vacations have become popular for people who prefer to relax and behold the beauty of the world while enjoying a break from work. Cruisers enjoy exploring the wonders of the unique destinations as well as the budget-friendly rates and state-of-the-art cruise ships.

As Tech and Lifestyle Journal previously reported, Summer 2018 would be more special as Star Cruises’ SuperStar Virgo is set to make Manila its homeport for the second time (the first was in 2017).

As the first of the 18 summer deployments of the cruise ship draws closer (March 5), SuperStar Virgo reminds us of these four enticing reasons to book any of the six-day, five-night cruise sailings:

1. No visa requirement
This is a rare opportunity to finally visit Japan without processing any visa. The first set of sailings will take the Manila—Naha (Okinawa, Japan)—Keelung (Taiwan)—Manila itinerary. Those are scheduled on March 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, as well as April 4, 9, May 9, 14, 19, and 24. An alternative route will be from Manila to Ishigaki (Okinawa, Japan) to Keelung (Taiwan) and back to Manila on the following deployments: April 14, 19, 24, 29, May 4, and 29.

2. Entertainment-packed vacation
SuperStar Virgo’s summer deployments are not just about the interesting land tours within the enticing destinations. There will never be a dull moment as the entire cruise vacation would be fully packed with lots of entertainment and recreational activities within the vessel’s in-house facilities. Enjoy duty-free shopping, play recreational games, gamble a bit, or be amazed by the nightly live performances that showcases world-class talent of singers, magicians, and acrobats. Each deployment also adopts special themes, which are lined up with special activities and appearances by popular personalities.


3. No weight restrictions on luggage
If you are into shopping, the cruise will be a perfect opportunity to indulge without worrying about how much weight your luggage could accumulate. “We don’t have luggage restrictions,” said Star Cruises International Sales Senior Vice President Michael Goh. Unlike airlines’ the cruise ship would not impose limits on luggage weight. Thus, vacationers can shop until they drop when they visit Taiwan and Japan (and even the in-house duty-free shop).

4. Irresistible discount schemes
Book accommodation at the cruise’s Inside State Room, Ocean View State Room, or Balcony State Room to have the third and fourth passenger for free. This exclusive offer applies to the following scheduled deployments: March 30, April 14, 19, 24, May 4, 14, and 29. Guests can even enjoy a rare balcony upgrade for free during the mid-season sailings.

Moreover, Senior Citizens can also still enjoy the 20% additional discount on the following deployments: April 14, 19, 24, May 4, 14, and 29.
