Latest Luxury Liner From Germany

October 5, 1999

The second of four cruise vessels to be constructed at the Meyer Werft Shipyard for Star Cruises, the Asian-based company recently accepted delivery of Superstar Virgo on August 2 - two weeks prior to its originally agreed delivery date. The 76,800-grt vessel, which combines Asian-inspired décor with sophisticated technology, offers cabins with private balconies and an array of first-rate entertainment and dining options. Virgo boasts a technically advanced diesel-electric propulsion plant, as well as the most up-to-date interactive communication systems and state-of-the-art stage equipment. After acceptance by Star Cruises' Eemshaven location in the Netherlands, the vessel will depart for Singapore, followed by a presentation in Alexandria/Egypt. From there, Virgo will pass the Suez Canal, and then return for its first official cruise departing August 20 from Bombay, India to Singapore.
