Travel News Asia 10 February 2003

Star Cruises has announced four special cruises to Shanghai and an exotic cruise to Ho Chi Minh City for SuperStar Leo which is presently homeported in Hong Kong in April, May, July, September and October 2003.

The four departures to Shanghai are scheduled on 26th April, 4th May, 26th September and 4th October 2003 respectively while the special cruise to Ho Chi Minh City will depart on 20th July 2003. The special itineraries to China will involve the ports of call of Shanghai, Fuzhou, Ningbo and Xiamen including a two-night stay in Shanghai. SuperStar Leo will be making her maiden calls to Fuzhou and Ningbo.

"The four Shanghai itineraries were developed on the back of the success of SuperStar Leo's earlier calls to Shanghai last year which received tremendous response from passengers and the travel trade. The exotic cruise to Ho Chi Minh City stems from the city's prominence in the Indo-China region as well as its historical and cultural offerings. , We are receiving very good forward  bookings from our Australian market who sees the cruise to Shanghai as the perfect option to sail into China and explore the city while cruising onboard a world-class cruise ship," said Star Cruises' Chief Operating Officer Mr. Chong Chee Tut.

"SuperStar Leo calling at Shanghai four times in 2003 is also made possible by the proactive cooperation of the Chinese government, local and port authorities. This positive cooperation will certainly lay the foundation for the further development of cruise tourism in Shanghai which is truly a mega-city  with a "must-see" status in world tourism map " added Mr. Chong.
