Kingdom of Kung Fu is an all new show that features a stunning combination of martial arts, dance, acrobatics and gymnastics. Produced entirely by the Star Cruises entertainment team, the spectacular US$ 1 million production brings together a multi-award winning international cast of 30 talented artistes from Europe, South America and Asia.

The shows will be staged at the 934 seat Lido show lounge, equipped with state-of-the-art light, sound and stage features.

"The introduction of new and spectacular shows like Kingdom of Kung Fu is part of the ongoing efforts by Star Cruises to enhance the varied choices of entertainment and activities that are available onboard our ships to provide our guests with a truly world class cruise experience," said Mr. Chong Chee Tut, Star Cruises Chief Operating Officer.

Kingdom of Kung Fu showcases the power and action of the Shaolin Masters, combined with the grace and fluidity of dance and the precision and strength of gymnastics and acrobatics. It reflects a fusion of cultures which sees good triumphing over evil in cleverly choreographed sequences complemented with dramatic sound, lights, special effects, stage props and backdrops. 

This is the second time that Star Cruises has embarked on producing a show of such magnitude following 'Sorpresa' which was a great success. It is also a first for the Shaolin Masters to be featured onboard a ship," said Mr. Looi Ban Cheng, Star Cruises Vice President for Entertainment.

The new show season began yesterday, 13 November 2005, on SuperStar Virgo's 3-night cruises to Penang and Phuket, 2-night cruises to Malacca and Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang) and weekend cruises out of Singapore.
