Genting Cruise Lines will deploy Star Cruises to Malaysia from 5 November 2018 until 28 April 2019, with SuperStar Gemini to homeport in Port Klang, Penang and Langkawi, along with Phuket in Thailand.
For the upcoming deployment, Star Cruises will introduce a series of round-trip voyages aboard SuperStar Gemini that will explore the scenic destinations throughout the region later this year. Strategically located within Southeast Asia, these homeports will also benefit from transportation links Port Klang and its proximity to Kuala Lumpur provides to attract international travellers from across the Asia Pacific.
“A home-grown cruise company with deep roots in the region”
Kent Zhu, president, Genting Cruise Lines, said: “Genting Cruise Lines has a long history in this part of Southeast Asia and we are excited to be making Malaysia SuperStar Gemini’s new home in November 2018 to carry on the legacy of SuperStar Libra which recently retired from active duty from the Star Cruises fleet.
“As a home-grown cruise company with deep roots in the region, Genting Cruise Lines continues to be committed to promoting the growth of the cruise industry in Asia and we are looking forward to strengthening our relationships with the countries and destinations that will be part of our exciting new itineraries.”
Guests will be able to choose from a selection of itineraries designed to maximise ports of call and shore time. With a series of three-night journeys, as well as some four-night (departing 6 Feb) and two-night (departing 10 Feb) cruises, passengers will be able to take in Port Klang, Penang and Langkawi in Malaysia, Phuket and Krabi in Thailand, and Singapore.
“Hassle-free joy of cruising to multiple destinations”
Ang Moo Lim, president of Star Cruises, added: “Star Cruises is excited to be back home in Malaysia and to offer local and international guests a fresh, unique and exciting experience with another one of our cruise ships, SuperStar Gemini. With multiple homeports, including Port Klang, Penang, Langkawi and Phuket, we want to make it more convenient for more guests to join us.
“Various travel options, including fly-cruise packages, make it easy to discover the hassle-free joy of cruising to multiple destinations, which is an affordable, value for money and truly a-one-of-a-kind experience. So, as we say in the maritime world – Welcome Aboard SuperStar Gemini!”
