Super Star Virgo next cruise trip this mid December 2018 to January 2019

Im back!!! Finally our internet connection is back, my laptop’s HD health is now restored and my body is in full charge again for the next travel.  Few days ago I was in the cruise trip on board the mighty Super Star Virgo by Star Cruises, we went for a sea voyage last December 4-9, 2018, and we visited Ha Long Bay in Vietnam and also in Sanya City, Hainan, China.

Each trip to another country will allow you to stay on the high sea for a day, then the next morning you will arrive in a foreign land.

Its the most adventurous trip ever and thanks to Star Cruises for bringing this trip back here in the Philippines. Im now excited for the upcoming trip offering, because I heard that there’s another trip going to Vietnam and also in Malaysia.

Check out the upcoming schedules below, if you are interested to go on a vacation this holiday season or celebrate Christmas and New Year with friends or family. I didn’t get bored during the 6 days and 5 nights of travel with Super Star Virgo, it feels like Im on a moving hotel and the next morning you wake up you are now in a different country.

The Panthenon Pool
The top most of Super Star Virgo, where you can find the resort theme pool, live music, slide pool, jacuzzi pool and the venue for the barbecue dinner during the 1st day of trip.

Galaxy of the Stars
A resto bar where you can have a panoramic view of the sea and also enjoy some live band and music every night

Oceanview with balcony room
For me this is the best room for your 6 days of trip. The balcony is very useful especially if you need fresh air to breathe and enjoy the sun.

Here are the rates of the upcoming trip of Super Star Virgo. Take note that the passenger’s ticket is priced at USD, while the gratuities for each passenger is priced in HKD.

For Vietnam and Malaysia,  VISA no longer required for Philippines passport holder, but I do suggest you avail the package tour so that you wont have any worry for transportation, tour guide and the place to visit.

For package tour, you can also inquire directly via Star Cruises or on board,  Estimate for package tour is around 500-600 HKD.

Let me share some of the photos from my fresh trip with Super Star Virgo

Ha Long Bay, Vietnam at night

Enjoying a hot cafe sua da while on board a boat cruising around Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

Cafe Sua da or Vietnamese coffee is a must try when you are in Vietnam. Here I am sitting on a Starbucks-like cafe that serves only Vietnamese coffee.

The giant statue of Guanyin of Nanshan
In China, this is one of their national treasure.

In Phoenix Island, Sanya city of Hainan, China
Those spaceship-like building are hotels in Sanya

Beach in Sanya, China
Their long white beach is almost similar to the long white beach of Boracay here in our country.
I’ve learned that Sanya, China is like the Hawaii of China.
