Star Cruises successfully defends Asia’s Leading Cruise Line title Kent Zhu, president of Genting Cruise Lines, picks up the World Travel Awards trophy

Star Cruises has been voted Asia’s Leading Cruise Line at the 24th annual World Travel Awards Asia & Australasia Gala Ceremony.

The event was held at the Grand Kempinski Hotel Shanghai, China.

As Asia’s pioneering cruise line brand, Star Cruises has taken the title for the past six consecutive years.

“It is truly an honour to accept this year’s award on behalf of Star Cruises and Genting Cruise Lines.

“We thank the voters for their continuous support and it is indeed a privilege to receive this recognition for six years in a row from the World Travel Awards,” said Kent Zhu, president of Genting Cruise Lines.


“With our hard working and dedicated team at Star Cruises, we will continue to strive to exceed the expectations of our guests and the cruise industry, raising the level of service and offerings, as well as creating new milestones across the region.”

Star Cruises continues to expand and reaffirm its leading position in the contemporary Asian market segment, introducing new homeports and destinations in the region.

At the end of May 2017, SuperStar Virgo completed her successful Jewels of the South China Sea cruise itinerary, a one-of-a-kind cruise journey with triple homeports in Hong Kong, Manila (Philippines) and Kaohsiung (Taiwan).

In Manila, Star Cruises is proud to be the first international cruise line to homeport in the Philippines, opening up new opportunities for the domestic and regional cruise tourism market.

Moving ahead, Star Cruises will continue to develop the Asian cruise industry and strengthen its position in the contemporary market segment with bold initiatives including the addition of two new and modern Global Class ships in 2020 and 2021.
