Hong Kong / Penang, 2 August 2013 – Star Cruises, the leading cruise line in Asia-Pacific, is inviting travellers to go on a special 7D6N cruise departing from Penang to Krabi / Yangon / Phuket on 11 August.
The special cruise marks Star Cruises’ first return to Yangon, also known as the “Garden City of the East”, in 10 years since SuperStar Virgo’s first call to the port in 2003. It will also be SuperStar Libra’s first call to this largest city of Myanmar since home porting in Penang in 2010.
Mr. Michael Goh, Senior Vice President of Sales, Star Cruises, said, “We’re excited to bring SuperStar Libra’s guests to Yangon for the first time to explore top tourist attractions such as the sacred gold-plated Shwedagon Pagoda, the cultural National Races Village and the traditional Thanlyin morning market, to name just a few.”
“Travellers can experience the multicultural facets of Yangon through a wide range of shore excursion selections that include Myanmar-style dining at House of Memories, visits to Bogyoke Aung San Museum–dedicated to the founder of modern Myanmar General Aung San–and shopping for precious Burmese gems,” he added.
There is no better way to escape from everyday life than to cruise on SuperStar Libra, an exclusive, world-class floating resort in the high seas. The ship offers an impressive array of facilities, entertainment, recreational activities and services coupled with warm Asian hospitality. Travellers can enjoy the unique shopping-at-sea experience in the 149-square-meter retail area that features retailers such as China Duty Free, upmarket wristwatch and jewellery boutique Canopus and gold specialty shop Eternal Elements. Duty-free merchandise includes designer handbags, perfumes, accessories and an array of fashion items.
Visitors will have the chance to explore top tourist attractions such as the sacred gold-plated Shwedagon Pagoda, the cultural National Races Village and the traditional Thanlyin morning market and other popular tourist spots.
Besides this special cruise, SuperStar Libra continues to offer the well-received 4D3N itinerary from Penang to the idyllic Phuket and Krabi departing every Sunday. From Wednesday to Saturday, travellers can immerse in another dimension of cruise fun on SuperStar Libra’s daily 1-night high sea experience.
On Star Cruises, every journey is a voyage of discovery and surprise.
