Star Cruises wins top cruise line accolade again in India

Star Cruises, the leading cruise line in Asia-Pacific, was voted by thousands of Indian holidaymakers as “Favourite Cruise Company” at Outlook Traveller Awards 2012.  This follows Star Cruises being voted the “Best Cruise” at Travel + Leisure India & South Asia’s Best Awards last year.

Outlook Traveller Awards, organized by the travel publication authority  Outlook Traveller,  is credited for setting the benchmark for consumer preferences in the travel industry since inception in 2010. The awards drew on the results from Outlook Traveller’s specifically-designed survey that garnered readers to provide unfiltered assessment of travel and tourism experiences across 18 travel-related categories. Research agency IPSOS oversaw collection, collation and analysis of the voting.

Other contenders in the "Favourite Cruise Company" category include Royal Caribbean, Costa Cruises, Cunard Lines and Princess Cruises, amongst others.

Mr William Ng, Chief Operating Officer, Star Cruises, said, “We are delighted that  once again Indian holidaymakers voted us ‘Favourite Cruise Company’. This accolade validates our understanding of the Indian market as well as our dedication in turning Indian passengers’ holiday ideals into realities.”

He continued, “From 2008 to last year, the number of Indian passengers jumped 45% fleet-wide at Star Cruises. This success is most prominent in SuperStar Virgo, homeported in Singapore, which embodies Star Cruises’ signature warm hospitality, and wide variety of F&B, entertainment & recreational offerings. We thank our travel agents in India for working tirelessly with us to achieve this, and together we will strive to further strengthen our foothold in the country.”

Star Cruises has recently stepped up its cruise offering in the region with the launch of SuperStar Gemini, which  has commenced her series of inaugural sailings in Singapore and Penang recently. She will be homeported in Sanya (Feb and March) and Shanghai (April to October) offering an array of idyllic itineraries, calling at top destinations in the region.
