Last May 2017, I went on a 6-day-5-night cruise aboard Star Cruises SuperStar Virgo, the first cruise ship to homeport in Manila. Compared to my usual DIY backpacking trips, this was an amazing hassle-free vacation that I got to enjoy with my mom and nephew. Going on a luxury cruise is something I’d never thought I’d get to do. It’s a unique type of travel experience worth saving up for and ticking off your bucketlist!
Star Cruises just announced that they’ll be sailing again starting March 2018 from Manila. This time, they’ll be heading to Naha or Ishigaki in Okinawa, Japan and Keelung, Taiwan – no VISA required!
