Gotta hand it to AirPhil Express for tying up Star Cruises to make a South East Asian Cruise accessible to Filipinos. From their invitation, I along with a few bloggers and media people from print were able to experience their Double the Adventure! Fly and Sail (Fly to Singapore the Sail to Malaysia) AdvenTour Package from AirPhil Express. Here’s a recount of that 4-day tour to give you an idea of what happens during this exciting cruise.
It’s time to slow down. Pick one of the lounge chairs and forget about the time for a moment. As soon as we finished our breakfast at the Mediterranean Breakfast Buffet, I took time to sit down by the pool and enjoy just being there. Like I said earlier, cruise are meant to be enjoyed in a slow steady pace. And that morning before we leave the ship, I took time to just wander around before our 11am checkout from Superstar Virgo.
I woke up from the faint light emanating from the window. It was already past 5am. I looked out beyond the frosted glass and it was completely blue. The ship seems to be approaching Port Klang, Malaysia slowly through an overnight cruise. Aside from the disjointed snores inside the room, I barely noticed the movement while I was sleeping. We got ready for breakfast as we’ll soon disembark for a short tour around Kuala Lumpur.
I stand in amazement on how steady the ship was as if I’m walking on plain ground. It was my first time to try out a cruise and this Superstar Virgo Ship from Star Cruises is a good introduction. I take my sights out from the sea and look at the people walking around the ship’s upper decks. It was a mixture of people of different age and nationalities. It’s not all for oldies as I thought. We’ll be spending 2 nights here on board. Sailing from Singapore to Port Klang in Malaysia then back.
