Star Positions Ship In Dubai

Tuesday, April 18, 2000
Malaysian cruise operator Star Cruises Plc has positioned a 100-passenger vessel in Dubai in efforts to cover West Asia, company officials said. "The coverage of West Asia reinforces Star as the leading cruise line in Asia-Pacific after having ships positioned in North, East and South East Asia," Star chairman K.T. Lim said.

The MegaStar Capricorn will be positioned year-round in Dubai and will make 200 calls a year at the port. Lim said the company's Dubai office will also bring first-time cruisers from the Middle East to cruise with Star in the Asia-Pacific region.

Star has a fleet of 20 ships and more than 21,000 lower berths, following its acquisition of Norwegian Cruise Line Holdings earlier this year, making it the joint third largest cruise operator in the world alongside Britain's P&O.
