More than 1,600 holidaymakers, comprising an international mix of 18 nationalities from Singapore, Australia, India, China, South Africa, United Kingdom, The Philippines and Malaysia boarded the SS Virgo in Singapore on April 5, for a 3-day / 2-night cruise. The SS Virgo is a floating hotel that offers world-class food and beverage, entertainment and recreation facilities. There is something for everyone from restaurants, bars, swimming pools, jacuzzis, saunas, video arcade, library, beauty salon, games room, movie theatre, karaoke facilities to exciting live entertainment presented in an international theatre show. Passengers were transferred via tender boats to the island where they were given a traditional welcome with colourful bunga manggar and the loud beat of the kompang. They were officially welcomed by Terengganu State Chairman for Industrial and Tourism Development, Datuk Mohd Awang Tera, and treated to cultural dances and local food. They spent a delightful afternoon exploring the islands beaches, soaking in the sun and discovering underwater treasures while diving and snorkeling in the Marine Park. From now till September, the SS Virgo is expected to make 12 more calls to Redang Island as part of a series of new route and special cruises planned for the year.
