Star Cruises is commemorating the National Day across Asia in the month of August, with an onboard colourful celebration, showcasing Asia’s rich heritage, culture and amazing culinary flavours. Asia is truly a melting pot of cultures and in August, these various cultures will converge onboard Star Cruises’ cruise ships, as we celebrate Independence Day for Singapore (9 Aug), India (15 Aug), Indonesia (17 Aug) and Malaysia (31 Aug).

During the month-long celebration onboard, Star Cruises’ guests can look forward to a unique and memorable cruise holiday, as we introduce a series of specially created itineraries and activities in conjunction with the Independence Day celebrations in August.

One of Asia’s notable and distinct heritage lies in its exotic cuisine that is truly unique to the Asian culture. Hence, our award-winning chefs invite guests onboard for an exceptional Asian culinary experience celebrating the flavours of Singapore, India, Indonesia and Malaysia during our Independence Day Celebration Theme Night Buffet, which is available every weekend. Some of the notable famous Asian cuisines include Singapore’s Chili Crab, or India’s Lamb Tikka, Indonesia’s ‘Ayam Penyet Pedas’ (spicy ‘penyet’ chicken) or even Malaysia’s delicious ‘Ikan Panggang’ (grilled fish). Also, don’t miss the various Independence Day Specialties Promotion onboard our different cruise ships, recommended by our renowned chefs - a must-try for all food lovers onboard.

In addition to the delicious Asian cuisine, Star Cruises is also offering popular Asian beverages as part of the Independence Day celebration. Try India’s famous drinks with the likes of Masala Tea, a blend of fragrance spices with tea and milk, or Lassi, a traditional yogurt drink. Tea drinking enthusiast can also sample Malaysia’s Teh Tarik, which literally means “pulled tea” with milk, creating a foamy top layer. Alternatively, relax and simply enjoy the perfect Singapore Sling cocktail onboard with your cruise holiday companions.
