Family Holiday on Star Cruises - Super Star Virgo

Well, there is always lack of update on this blog. What is so suprising about this right. Hmm.. I will try la, try to be more consistent with updates alright.

So on 27 Feb we went for a short trip on star cruise. By we, I meant my brother, his GF (HT), my mom and I. 

Initially when I asked mommy to take leave for 27, 28 Feb and 01 Mar, told her we bringing her go holiday. She was abit blur and confused, but did not dare to ask me. She then asked HT, why only need to take leave for 27/28 Feb and 01 Mar. Izzit we go 27 - 28 Feb then come back home and 01 Mar go again. She forgot that Feb do not have 29 and 30! This is so funny when I heard it.

Alright, So on 27 Feb, because the cruise set sail at 2359 and the boarding gate only opens at 2000HRS, I went to work as per normal then rush home to get all my stuff and we all moved out together.

Camwhore abit la, while commuting to Habpur Front Ferry Terminal.

This is our first trip on a cruise, not so sure of the procedure. Everything was pretty simple though. Just give them our passport and check-in, they will give us our cabin key. 


This is my cabin key. Each and everyone will have one card key to themselves. This acts like a credit card. Onboard the vessel. There is not much need for cash. Except for Casino ba. This is something I am pretty excited too. Caution to all, once you reealised you have misplaced your cabin card key, please report it immediately! Yes. Immediately, else others who picked it up, they can use it for pay for they pleasure.

Enroute to the cruise from the ferry terminal, there will be masscott taking pictures with you, then you can buy the pictures as souvenir later on.

Well, being the "ngiao ku" (miser), of cause I did not buy la. We secretly snap a pic though. Haha.

One more thing. The cruise staff will collect your passport and keep them for ya. So do not worry when they did not return you your passport as yet. Only upon returning to Singapore and before disembarking, they will return it to you. Chill.

We are finally onboard the ship! Super Star Virgo.

Now there are different types of cabins (rooms). There are inside stateroom, this are the ones that are in the middle of the ship and have no windows. Every deck (level) have them.

Becuase they have no window (at least not the real window) , they are cheaper.

Then, there is Oceanview stateroom with Porthole, only on lower decks. Portholes are like round shaped window, small one though.  (no pic for this cabin type as I did not get the chance to take pics of it.)

 The next one is Oceanview stateroom with Window. These windows cannot be open though. At least you get to see the outside right.

My brother posing for picture.

They also have this welcome gift. Its a tea, I think. I did not open it up. 

This is a sofa. Duh. Hidden in it is a roll-away bed. So can sleep more than 2 people. 

Last but not least, it Oceanview stateroom with Balcony. Yes, there is a balcony that you can walk out to.

The sofa can be converted to a "bed" too. Does not look comfy though.

We decided to take group pics before heading out to explore the ship.

Sorry about the Longchamp on the left!

YEA! Peace out~

 Crazy people~

I kinda like the toilet. Though it is really small, it is brightly lit and have all the things we need.

We are kinda hungry already so we decided to checkout their restaurant.  On the way to the restaurant, saw this Genting Club, VIP one ok.

Did not edit the colour, so very orangy.

Its Dinper time (Dinner + Supper = Dinper). The food is not bad ya know. I initially thought it would not be nice. But no. Its was pretty good. And, its all inclusive already, means you do not have to pay for these. Except when you want to drink soft drink/alcohol etc.

Yea, that's me drinking the soup.

After dinper, we went on to explore the whole ship. There are entertainment like shows' movie, arcade, casino, karaoke swimming pool etc.

There is facilities like gym, salon too.

After exploring,  we went to Casino to play some game. The staff actually check me! ask me for my ID. I am happy about it though. Haha.

I tried slot machine aka jackpot machine. And lost. Haha. Then we on to check out the table games. My brother decided to play the  Baccarat and I joined  him. For an hour, there is no win no lose for mi, kinda boring for me too.

By this time, mom and HT already headed back to cabin to rest while we play.

I went on to walk around to see what esle is there to play. I saw roulette. Looks like fun. So I sat there and look. There is this aunty who kept winning ya know. Crazy. So I though, why not i follow her lo. And amazing enough, thanks to her, I won some money. Shall not say how much, but I won back my cruise fare. :P

Since I won some money, I decided to go back and rest. So we went to the cashier to cash out.

The following morning was nice. Waking up to the clear sky, let the breeze run through my hair. Hmmm....

I can just sit here the whole day drinking, reading, talking, gossipping too.  Anyone?

"Ocean" and I!

See the view. Isnt it nice to be able to wake up to this?!

 People are already on the deck walking abround, chillaxing.

Others, their own line dancing activity.

Today we go to Kuala Lumpur, Port Klang. We decided not to take the tour from the cruise, but to take taxi to town on our own. You can choose whichever you want. 

We went to Petaling Jaya. There is nothing much actually. But. there are lotsa food. We had some drinks and some "muachi". The muachi got different taste one ok. Got original, red bean, green tea, etc. Quite nice la.

Then mom saw don't know what. So they were all looking at it.

We also bought some bottled drinks and food, tidbits back to the ship to snack.

 How can I not take picture with this iconic lobby. Its a must take lo. Aiya, ok la, I admit! I just want to take picture la.

On the last night of the cruise, there is also a party going on on the swimming pool deck. Also Chocolate Fesast!

We each took quite abit. It is quite good. But it is quite "gelate" and we all cant finish our own plate. Thinking about it, make me feel so bad! I think I would still do the same again though. :P

After this, we went on to karaoke (payable, forgot how much already).  Sing for a couple of hours. Then, we went casino again. Haha.. Shall not talk to much about Casino. Else, later CRA (Casino Regulatory Authority) comes after me!

When you see this view (RWS - Resorts World Sentosa), means you are back to Singapore already.

It was a nice short get away with Family. Spend nice time together.

Cannot wait for our next family trip!!! It will be fun!
