Never been on a cruise before? You came to the right website. Here at Skyzone, we will share with you the actual images and experience taken during this cruise and the photos are all from the Super Star Libra Penang Thailand Cruise. If you have been on a cruise before, you will be pleased to know that the Super Star Libra has recently undergone major refurbishments where there is a 100% fully halal restaurant for Muslim passengers while there are also many new attractions and shows on board the ship.
When you reach Phuket, the ship will dock at the port at about 11am where passangers will have free and easy time to explore Phuket until about 9pm when you are required to be back on the ship. For those not wanting to explore out of the port, you will have the chance to explore the many local Thai food stalls that come in the afternoon and set up shop just outside the ship. There is also a money changer stall while the others are mainly local Thai food and souvenirs. They close at about 10pm before the Super Star Libra departs for Krabi at midnight.
For those wanting to explore Phuket Island, there are various options where you can take a tuk-tuk, taxi van or even sign up for a tour package from the cruise ship. You have about 10 hours to explore the island. One of the recommended places to visit here is the Phuket Elephant Park where you can go for some exciting elephant rides and also see some elephant and other animal shows. Total time required is about 2-3 hours here. Another very popular place to visit is the Cashew Nut Factory where many Malaysians love to come here and do their souvenir shopping.
Those visiting Phuket main town will be in for a treat as there are numerous places for shopping, food and beverages. International brands, cuisines and endless shopping is available. There are modern malls while the conventional Thai shopping styles are also available throughout the main town area. Take note that you may require at least an hour to and from the main town to the port.
When the cruise departs Phuket at midnight, the ship will arrive in Krabi at about 9am. Here, depending on the tide, the ship will dock in sea where local Thai ferry boats will shuttle passengers to the mainland. The process takes about 30 minutes when you check out of the ship, board the ferry and arrive in Krabi. Upon arriving on the mainland, you have the options to take a taxi or tour bus if you booked one. The Super Star Libra will depart from Krabi at about 6pm so this leaves you with about 7 hours here. Among the popular things to do in Krabi are exploring Aonang Street for some serious shopping and trying the local Thai massages here. There are various local restaurants and hawkers available for those seeking a food hunt here in Krabi.
Among the recommended places to visit in Krabi is the Krabi Outlet Village or Krabi Factory Outlet where you can buy some really cheap branded goods here. The place is decently huge where you need about one to two hours here which is more than enough. The journey here will require you to take a taxi or tuk tuk which is about 30 minutes one way. The Outlet Village is also fully air conditioned and also with some really nice bathrooms.
Overall, everyone MUST TRY the local Thai Massage when in Phuket or Krabi. The picture below shows the prices of the local massages in Thai Baht but remove one zero to convert it into Ringgit Malaysia. Very cheap indeed compared to back home in Kuala Lumpur. For returning back to the Super Star Libra, you need to give an allowance of 45 to 60 minutes so that you will not miss the cruise back to Penang.
If you have never been on a cruise, this is one of the recommended trips that does not take too long. A total of four days and three nights is just perfect for anyone wanting to explore this style of vacation. Cruise packages are on special promotions as Star Cruise is having a promotional offer for their 20th Anniversary where the first person is priced at RM1,600 while the second person only pays RM20!!! Now, total that and the price is an amazing RM1620 for two persons! This offer is valid from 1st Aug till 30th Aug 2013.
