處女星號 麗星郵輪 香港高雄菲律賓 南中國海瑰寶之旅 SuperStar Virgo Jewels of the South China Sea Cruise Trip

, , ,

在上月尾參與了麗星郵輪處女星號的南中國海瑰寶之旅,對上一次上郵輪玩已經是小時候,相隔差不多二十年再渡過了一個海上假期,跟坐飛機去玩的旅程非常不一樣,賺到了一段難忘的回憶。
I had a happy time on Star Cruises SuperStar Virgo “Jewels of the South China Sea” trip last month. I had been to Star Cruises when I was small, this time going back to Star Cruises after almost 20 years, I have earned another memorable journey. A complete different travel experience compared with travel by plane.

南中國海瑰寶之旅在3月到5月會沿著南中國海幾個城市航行,包括菲律賓馬尼拉、北伊洛戈、高雄及香港。旅程6日5夜,會在船上睡5個晚上,包括上船的那一晚,之後會分別在每一天到達一個航點,和有一整天的海上假期。
“Jewels of the South China Sea” is cruising around several cities during March to May. The cities are Manila, Ilocos Norte in the Philippines; Kaohsiung in Taiwan and Hong Kong. 6 days 5 nights trip, spending 5 nights on the cruise, including the day joining the cruise trip, and SuperStar Virgo stops each city for and day, plus a whole day sailing in the sea.

船上房型有好幾種,最經濟的是無窗船艙,之後是有窗的房型。
There’re several room types (cabin) on the cruise. The cheapest choice is cabin without windows, and next is cabin with window.

我這次住的是露台房間,十分舒適,空間亦比我想像中的大,可隨時打開玻璃門走出露台吹海風看大海,非常愜意的假日時光。
This time I stayed at the Oceanview Stateroom with balcony, cozy and comfy cabin, the size is bigger than I expected. I can open the glass door anytime, to enjoy the sea breeze at viewing the ocean anytime I want.

洗手間設施和盥洗用品設備均齊全,盥洗用品是茉莉香氣不錯用。風筒在房間的抽屜,亦有浴袍拖鞋在衣櫃裡。插座有三腳萬能插,冷暖氣可自行調節。
Clean and well equipped facilities for the bathroom. Shower gel and shampoo has decent jasmine scent and is not bad to use. Hair dryer is in cabin’s drawer, with bathrobes and slippers inside the wardrobe. They have 3-pin plugs, self-controlled air conditioning.

船上有wifi服務,用三天的收費大約$330港幣左右,在大海中一般上網亦都可以,完全沒有問題。每天房間都會有一份麗星導航,當天的船上節目、餐廳資料和目的地資料都會在導航單張內。
It has wifi service on cruise, around $330HKD for 3 days, totally fine to go online for me everyday. Also it has Star Navigator leaflet for showing the timetable of the shows, restaurants details and destination information.

處女星號一共有十層公眾可使用的樓層,頂層有游泳池、健身房和spa。上面有一條非常好玩的水滑梯,也有籃球場,加上每天都有免費的健身活動可參加,運動的活動蠻多的。
SuperStar Virgo has 10 public floors, on the top floor it has a nice swimming pool, gym room and spa. There’s a fun water slide to play. It has basketball court too. You can join yoga or dancing class for free, quite a lot of sports activities to do.

講到吃,上船絕對不用擔心這一方面,每天都有非常多的選擇,我全都吃過了,味道都很不錯的日本菜跟印度菜,收費不會太貴,可先參考餐廳外的餐牌再作決定。船上十多間餐廳同酒吧中,有三間免費的餐廳 – 自助餐、西餐跟中餐。No need to worry about dining on cruise, a lot of choices everyday. I have all tried and they’re all good. First I tried Japanese food and Indian food, they’re not too expensive, you can refer to the menu restaurant outside the restaurant and then decide which one you want to try. There are more than ten restaurants and bars onboard, which three are free restaurants – buffet, western and Chinese food.

意大利菜Palazzo值得一吃,光是他們的麵包佐番茄醬橄欖油已經很美味,頭盤餐湯跟主菜亦做得蠻有水準的。
Worth a try at their Italian restaurant Palazzo, their bread with tomato sauce and olive oil is perfectly made, I had a pleasant dinner.

參加了船長晚宴,十分熱鬧,每個人都可以參加,之前先報名就可以了。
Wonderful experience at Gala Dinner. Everyone can join, just need to apply beforehand.

菲律賓的國民甜點Halo Halo郵輪上也有,香芋冰淇淋加上煉乳冰,還有椰果、紅豆跟熱帶水果,好吃。在12樓的雪糕店有賣,$48港幣。
On cruise it has a common dessert in the Philippines- Halo Halo, taro ice cream with condensed milk shaved ice, on top it has coconut, sago, gulaman (agar jelly) and fruits. I missed this dessert when I visited Manila and Laoag, luckily I can still try this on the cruise! $48HKD.

我最喜歡的是船上的藍湖咖啡座,24小時都開的,是收費餐廳但價格不貴,像他們好吃的喇沙$78就有一大碗。也試了菲律賓烤豬肉串飯,好吃。
My most favourite restaurant on SuperStar Virgo is Blue Lagoon, lots of Asia delicacy, like their authentic delicious laksa only sells $78HkD per one.

晚上的節目可精彩了,每個晚上都有不同的表演節目,我看過非常精彩的魔術表演和舞蹈表演,其中那位魔術師Rick Green我曾在英國選秀節目看過他,在郵輪可以看到他真的太開心了!表演超精彩的,沒特別事情不要那麼早就回房睡覺喔。

At night the cruise prepares a lot of shows and activities. I have watched their dancing shows and magic shows. I watched the magician Rick Green on the British Got Talent before and I could see his show live! So glad and surprised! Don’t go to sleep early, totally worth watching their shows.

經過一整天的海上假期,到了馬尼拉。每個觀光點他們都有觀光團給乘客參加,但我選擇自己去城市逛逛。馬尼拉有Uber,很方便。到了超市買些醬料,吃了雪糕,又到了教堂參觀。
After a whole day staying on the cruise, I arrived Manila. Visited some churches and ate a tasty ice cream. You can join their tour or just call Uber to bring you to the places you want to go.

壓根兒都沒有想過會到北伊洛戈旅遊,旅遊後十分喜歡這裡的小鎮風情。他在馬尼拉以上,屬菲律賓北部。這裡有西班牙殖民地留下來的建築,像沙塔和教堂,在街頭蠻有西班牙的古舊風情。特意不吃午餐,嘗試了很多佬沃最地道的小吃,非常喜歡他們的菲律賓餡餅。
Next day I arrived Ilocos Norte. I have joined the city tour and tried a lot of street food and snacks! The city remained the churches and the sand tower built when was the colony under Spain.

來過高雄很多次,但坐郵輪來真的是第一次,因為停在高雄港,非常靠近駁二藝術特區跟鹽埕區,一下船甚麼交通工具都不用上就可以走出去市中心了,吃了自己想吃的刨冰跟小籠包,真好。
I always go to Kaohsiung but this is definitely my first time to arrive by cruise. The port is just next to Pier 2 and the city, so very easy to go out for food and for fun! I had my favourite shaved ice and xiaolongbao, happy.

最後一天因為下午一點半就要離開了,沒有安排甚麼活動,睡晚一點,叫了房間服務的早餐留在自己的房間吃。這次的海上假期難忘亦愉快,處女星號的團隊絕大部分都非常友善而熱情,每天遇到認識我或為我服務過的工作人員都會大家打招呼。船上完全不會無聊,有好吃的也有精彩的表演,甚麼都不想做的時候也可以做船上發呆。下次想跟家人一起再上船,他們一定也會喜歡。
I ended the trip at 1:30pm for the last day, I didn’t arrange any activity. Ordered a room service breakfast and enjoyed my last day in the room. This time the journey is full of joy, love and unforgettable memories. Almost all of the crew is nice and friendly, those who knew me said hello to me everyday when we met. A lot of things to do on the cruise, or you can just do nothing and enjoy the sea view. Next time I would like to join the SuperStar Virgo cruise trip again with my family, must be fun!
