Star Cruises will increase the length of SuperStar Virgo's Shanghai homeport cruises to 8D/7N voyages when the new cruise season begins.
From July 6 until November 30, the 8D/7N Golden Sea Route will depart Shanghai every Thursday aboard SuperStar Virgo, visiting ports of calls including Tokyo, Mount Fuji, Osaka (with land tour options to include Kyoto) and Kagoshima.
In addition, Star Cruise guests can also opt for a 4D/3N Sea-Land-Air holiday that departs from Shanghai. Upon disembarkation in Tokyo, guests can enjoy the city at their leisure and return to Shanghai by air. Alternatively, guests can also fly to Tokyo for a 5D/4N cruise to Mount Fuji and Kagoshima, with disembarkation in Shanghai.
“The average cruise length from China tends to be short, at four to five nights, with calls to secondary port cities. The cruise ship itself is the primary attraction,” said Ang Moo Lim, president of Star Cruises.
“Star Cruises' new 8D/7N cruises will provide a step-change forward in the Chinese cruise experience with calls to four famous ports and bringing the cruise length to international standards where more than 50 per cent of cruises are of seven-night duration. The extension of our itinerary to 8D/7N will bolster its appeal to the overseas market, which we believe will attract more International cruise travellers to Shanghai.”
Prices for the 8D/7N cruise start from US$4,999 per person based on twin occupancy.
