Cruisers can also rest in style in their cabins and suites. SuperStar Virgo has 935 cabins (sea-view cabins and balcony suites). Each cabin and suites has its own elegant designs and comfy beds that can easily help you sleep during high seas.

In the press interview, Andrea Manzano, Assistant VP for Sales and Marketing for Star Cruises said that, “..it's really a perfect summer vacation to our Filipino guest specially there’s no visa requirement for a Philippine passport holder. We know that if we’d go to Japan, there’s a visa requirement but if you’re taking this cruise out of Manila and returning back to this cruise as well in the Philippines, no visa requirements so it’s easy, free arrangement vacation for the family.”

Star Cruises employ a lot of Filipinos in SuperStar Virgo. "Many of our Filipino colleagues who initially joined us as waiters or housekeeping staff. Today they all become our senior management, our cruise directors they are all Filipinos, our F&B director is also a Filipino, if you look at our front office they are all Filipino," Michael Goh, Senior VP for International Sales said.

Star Cruises has been a pioneer in Asia Pacific cruise and has been operating since 1993. Star Cruises continues to offer top notch services with its signature Asian hospitality.
