PENANG 7 December 2021: Genting Cruise Lines has gained approval from the Malaysian government to restart operations in Malaysia on 22 December 2021, starting with Star Pisces.
As the first international cruise line to homeport and resume commercial operations in Malaysia, Star Pisces will offer five departures every week, offering a series of roundtrip itineraries from Penang, including a two-night ‘Langkawi Escape’ and a one-night ‘Straits of Malacca’ cruise itinerary for Malaysians to celebrate Christmas and New Year during the school holidays.
Star Pisces will initially operate at a reduced passenger capacity of 50% with strict enhanced safety and preventive measures that are in accordance with the local requirements and international standards.
Since July 2020, Genting Cruise Lines was the first international cruise company in the world to pioneer and successfully restart operations with Dream Cruises, starting in Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong.
Star Pisces bookings will be open in mid-December and available to all Malaysian citizens, foreigners with valid Malaysian long-term visit passes, as well as international tourists that had completed and passed the quarantine and home surveillance order by the Malaysian authorities.
Vacationers can now look forward to a brand-new vacation option beyond the regular land-based ‘stay-cation’ concept and instead experience a refreshing ‘Super Seacation’ cruise adventure with Star Pisces from MYR199 onwards per person based on twin sharing.
