If you're making plans for the spring break or summer vacation, stop scratching your head over where to go and what to do, and take a look into the "stars." In fact, if it's star-filled nights you seek in first-class surroundings, then the Okinawa Tourist Service in conjunction with the Malaysian-owned cruise line, Star Cruises, can offer a five-star vacation.

The 'Star Aquarius', a 40,000 ton, 176-meter long, 12-story high, luxury cruise ship, is one of the many Star Cruise liners named after an astrological sign, and has been plying Okinawan waters for two years. Previously tying up to port at Okinawa only during the summer months, it now drops anchor twice a week throughout the year. The ship departs every Monday and Thursday and stops at Ishigaki Island and Taiwan before making its way back to Okinawa. This 4 day-3 night cruise will keep you captivated throughout your journey. And, believe me, this ship is spectacular!

Quite apart from the 'Star Aquarius' offering 12 bars and restaurants serving Thai, Japanese, Chinese, and Italian dishes, it boasts of an outdoor BBQ for the fresh-air lovers among us. On-board entertainment is another big plus and for all passengers the choices are many. The 'Aquarius' has a casino, a movie theater, karaoke rooms, a cabaret showroom, a library, and an outlet where you can rent books and games! There is even a drugstore and gift shop for everyday necessities and gifts alike.

For you health nuts, a fitness center filled with the latest equipment, a jogging track on the top deck, and a swimming pool, will help keep you in shape. After a workout in the gym or a day spent sunbathing on the deck, relax in the jacuzzi and sauna, or enjoy a session with the masseuse. For those truly in search of luxury, the executive and commodore suites sport a private jacuzzi out on the veranda! Little wonder Star Cruises is the leading cruise line in Asia!

Star Cruise provides a 24-hour child care service which includes a play room, arcade, computer and lecture center, and nap room. Star Aquarius is also a great idea for a graduation getaway for your child or for the whole family. Group discounts are available. Everything is paid for in Taiwanese currency and money exchanges can be made onboard. Cruises start from 30,500 per person, which includes all meals. Call OTS today and make your reservations at 098-933-1152 /3 at the Plaza Branch or 098-869-1111 in Naha and add some spice to your life!
