Pulau Redang, Superstar Virgo

Who Went? One 4yo, one 18mo, mum and dad.

Review: Great introduction to the cruise holiday format. Kids loved the novelty of being on board an enormous ship, especially the eldest who was on a maritime kick and had been wanting to go on a cruise ship ever since learning about the Titanic, oddly enough. Beach was great (tropical fish, icecream shack, etc), though stop was short.

Highlights: Kid’s pool, waterslides, shore excursion to beach, Captain’s early breakfast at bow, exploring the ship, crawling around the ship-shape room.

Challenges: Hectic schedule and began to seem a little too crowded for the eldest by the end.

Price Bracket: Low(ish) in the cheap seats with a special deal and if you mainly make use of what is already included.
