Star Cruises is now offering visa-free tours to two of Asia’s hottest summer destinations. This year, Star Cruises’ SuperStar Virgo will call Manila her home port from April until May.
The 5-day cruise takes you to Taiwan and Japan without the hassle of securing a visa.
The SuperStar Virgo is a 13-deck luxury cruise ship with 935 cabins including ‘sea-view’ and balcony suites.
There are a wide variety of international restaurants that range from; Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Western, and an al fresco bar.
The ship also has a number of facilities such as Duty-Free shops, jewelry boutiques, a salon, a spa and gym, karaoke rooms, a child’s activity center, a game room, and a two-level theater that can comfortably seat 800 guests.
Outdoor activities include a 100-meter mega slide, an outdoor swimming pool, mini golf course, and a calendar of themed activities.
The Tokyo Helicopter cruise is a fun and exciting way to see the beautiful city of Tokyo!
The 15minute ride takes you 600 meters high above the skyline, where you can enjoy the cites beautiful landmarks like Mt Fuji fading away in the background, or the famed Tokyo Sky Tree that darts from the ground like a neo-futuristic beacon made of steel and shimmering lights.
Robot Restaurant is a modern-day cabaret show that has become one of Japans top tourist attractions.
The live entertainment is a crazy combination of eastern and western pop culture, modern dance, light-shows, Japanese mecha, and live anime! The only way to truly describe Robot Restaurant is that, it is a type of modern-day Kabuki.
The 90-minute spectacle is divided into four acts that feature an array of friendly and heroic creatures who have to fend off an invasion by the Evil Robot Empire or something — to be quite honest we weren't really sure what was going on, but we loved every minute of it!
However, visitors shouldn't expect a typical dining experience, as it's more about the show than food. While meals are available for an extra charge, you can also buy refreshments and snacks between each act.
If you ever find yourself in Tokyo and have a few minutes to spare, with a few bucks to spend, Robot Restaurant should be on your to-do list when visiting Tokyo. It is something that is purely Japanese and something you can only see in Japan.
(Tip: Eat before you watch the show, so you can focus on the amazing performances and animatronics.)
