Genting Cruise Lines is pleased to announce the deployment of 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, focusing on destinations around the calm and tranquil waters of the Straits of Malacca. SuperStar Gemini’s Malaysia deployment further reinforces Genting Cruise Lines’ ongoing commitment in growing Malaysia’s cruise industry and also builds on the Genting Group’s long and fruitful history spanning over 50 years in the country.

“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,” said Mr. Kent Zhu, President, Genting Cruise Lines. “As a home-grown cruise company with deep roots in the region, Genting Cruise Lines continues to be committed in 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.”

For the upcoming deployment, Star Cruises will introduce a series of enticing round-trip voyages from its homeports in Port Klang, Penang, and Langkawi in Malaysia, and Phuket, Thailand, 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 close transportation links Port Klang and its proximity to Kuala Lumpur provides to attract international travellers from across Asia Pacific.

Guests will be able to choose from a selection of carefully curated itineraries designed to maximize ports of call and shore time for the enjoyment of passengers. With a series of popular 3-night journeys, as well as a special 4-night (departing 6 Feb) and 2-night (departing 10 Feb) cruise, passengers will be able to take in both cosmopolitan centres and tropical paradises including Port Klang, Penang and Langkawi in Malaysia, Phuket and Krabi in Thailand, as well as to Singapore.

“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,” said Mr Ang Moo Lim, President of Star Cruises. “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!”
In addition to these exciting new destinations, guests on board SuperStar Gemini will be able to enjoy a memorable all-encompassing cruise experience featuring a variety of accommodations to suit every taste and budget, inclusive daily meals with a wide array of Asian and international cuisines, spectacular entertainment, a range of recreational facilities and much more – all part of Star Cruises’ promise to deliver exceptional cruise holidays highlighted by its signature, heartfelt Asian hospitality.
