There are cruises and then there are cruises. Can you imagine taking a mega 48-day ocean cruise?

Come November, this will be a reality as Star Cruises will undertake its first adventure cruise – crossing the equator to explore the Southern Hemisphere.

From Nov 13 to Dec 31, guests can explore a variety of exotic ports of call on a journey that evokes the spirit of the classic film, Around the World in 80 Days.

Australia, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam – SuperStar Virgo brings the greatest hits of Asia and the Southern Hemisphere right to your doorstep, stopping in over 20 ports of call including Bali, Bangkok, Krakatoa, Melbourne, Ho Chi Minh City, Sydney and more during its full 48-day tour.

Short on vacation time? Pick and choose the Southern Hemisphere experience you want with a variety of stops in colourful South-east Asian ports… perhaps Bali to Singapore? Or, how about circling around Australia and visiting Adelaide, Cairns, Melbourne, Sydney and Tasmania?

Whatever the itinerary, savour the flavours, sights and sounds of the region though exciting shore excursions and soak in the cultures of fascinating new lands: go up, up and away in a hot air balloon, come face to face with the infamous Krakatoa volcano, climb the towering Sydney Harbour Bridge or dip and dive in a helicopter ride. You may not find buried treasure, but you will treasure your memories.

“Because we understand our guests’ desire to still experience a sense of “home cooking” even on vacation, we make sure we have a selection of their local cuisines available, expertly created to meet their discerning standards – especially for such a long trip,” said Star Cruises executive vice president, sales, marketing & hotels Ang Moo Lim.
