Our Dress Code

Smart casual attire is suitable for most occasions while onboard. For your dining pleasure as well as for other guests, elegant casual attire is required during dinner at fine dining restaurants such as Palazzo on SuperStar Virgo. For gala nights, the dress code should be elegant or smart casual wear is highly recommended. Shorts, Bermudas, slippers, flip flops, sportswear, bathrobes and swimwear are not allowed.


Money Matters

Most foreign currencies are accepted onboard at prevailing exchange rates. The onboard currency will be that of the country where the ship is based (e.g. Singapore dollars for cruises out of Singapore). Most major credit cards (Visa/MasterCard/CUP/JCB/Amex/Diners) are accepted, along with travellers cheques, but not personal cheques.


Physically Challenged Guests

Most areas onboard our vessels are accessible to the physically challenged. There are also specially equipped cabins with wider doorways and larger bathrooms with grab bars and folding shower seats. The ship also provides wheelchairs for emergency purposes.



For your comfort and convenience, we recommend that each guest take no more than one suitcase and one hand baggage onboard. These must fit comfortably in your cabin as no baggage will be stored in the ship's hold. Your total baggage weight should not be more than 30kg.
