The new Global Class ships will have the capacity to carry at least 5,000 passengers.
“Passengers on our “Global Class” ships will enjoy an international class cruise experience to all parts of the world, yet in an environment where they will feel at home, whether it is food, culture, shows, enrichment programs or excursions,” says Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay. “With the first two ships, we are focused on delivering a world-class vacation experience for Chinese cruise passengers at an affordable price whilst enjoying fun-filled onboard and on-land adventures in many cities in the most seamless way, without the necessity of checking-in and checking-out of airports and hotels.”
Star Cruises announced it would ordering two ships in the Global Class series which will be designed with Chinese characteristics. The ships will be deployed for the Chinese market.
