Star Cruises announced the new homeport deployment of SuperStar Gemini to Laem Chabang at a launch event on 28 March at the Centara Grand & Bangkok Convention Center. SuperStar Gemini will be based in Laem Chabang International Terminal beginning 17 December 2017 through to 27 April 2018.
“We are excited to announce Star Cruises’ return to The Land of Smiles with the deployment of SuperStar Gemini at Laem Chabang,” said Mr Ang Moo Lim, President, Star Cruises. “Our long history with Thailand stretches all the way back to 1995 when we first called upon Phuket and, today, we are proud to be able to call Laem Chabang our new home come 17 December this year.”
Throughout Star Cruises long history with Thailand, the cruise line has brought over millions passengers to visit the nation’s many wonderful sites including Hua Hin, Ko Chang, Krabi, Pattaya, Phi Phi Island, Songkla and Sri Racha. With this new deployment, Star Cruises will continue to shine the spotlight on Thailand as a premier destination in Asia for the fly-cruise market to help support the local inbound and outbound tourism industry.
“Thailand has the largest number of tourists of all ASEAN countries and the two airports of Bangkok serve more than 85 million passengers every year,” added Mr. Ang. “This is a perfect location for fly-cruise passengers and we will work closely with inbound agents to package cruises with land vacations – providing tourists yet another reason to visit Thailand. We will make Bangkok the “Gateway to IndoChina” due to its superior air and tourist infrastructure. “
During her deployment, SuperStar Gemini will embark on 3-night cruises to Sihanoukville and Koh Samui, departing every Sunday, 2-night cruises to Sihanoukville, departing every Wednesday, and 2-night cruises to Koh Kong Island, departing on every Friday.
On board SuperStar Gemini, guests can enjoy a “free and easy” cruise experience unbound by restrictive schedules and itineraries.
On board, guests will enjoy an all-inclusive gastronomic journey with up to six complimentary daily meals all masterfully prepared by exceptional award-winning chefs. In between destinations, guests can enjoy thrilling performances by international artists at the Stardust Lounge or re-energize at the King Neptune Health Club. SuperStar Gemini also features a wide range of shopping options from signature boutiques to jewelry outlets and its very own duty free shop for designer items at attractive prices.
Luxury meets comfort throughout Superstar Gemini’s range of accommodations including the spacious surroundings of the Executive Suites with their own living rooms and bedrooms with a queen size bed or the panoramic views from the private sanctuary of each Oceanview Stateroom.
In the future, guests can also look forward to the launch two new “Global Class” cruise ships as part of the Star Cruises fleet.
