Philippine tourism stakeholders and government tourism officials have welcomed SuperStar Virgo, operated by Star Cruises, upon her arrival at the Pier 15 in Manila South Harbor today.
The Hong Kong-based cruise line Star Cruises picked Manila, for the first time, to be SuperStar Virgo’s homeport for several weeks.
The 900-cabin SuperStar Virgo will will be offering six-day, five-night cruise from Manila, to Laoag in Ilocos Norte to Kaohsiung in Taiwan to Hong Kong, and back to Manila starting today until May 23.
Star Cruises President Ang Moo Lim said that Filipino passengers can enjoy the cruise visa free with “almost unlimited baggage allowance”.
“We are excited to witness and become part of more milestones and firsts that Star Cruises will undertake in the country that will definitely be a pioneer for future cruise programs to the country,” Department of Tourism (DOT) Asst. Secretary Maria Lourdes Japson previously said.
