Most of people think that living on board in a Star Cruise trip is expensive. For me, I can say NO and also YES. It is not as expensive as I thought. Just imagine that you only have to pay less that RM1000 for 4 days full board trip. Full board means it is inclusive on accommodation and buffet meals. What makes it expensive is that you have to pay full amount, or 50% deposit and the balance has to be paid within 10 days. If you have enough saving to pay then it will good for you.
This is the most relaxing trip I've ever went. We have nice and plenty of foods, entertainment on board, and you are able to have tour at the places you stopped. It began in 2011 when my friend, Amy and I went to Matta Fair held at PWTC during the year. We passed all the booths and finally found a booth that offers holiday packages on Star Cruise.
After considering everything including price, location and date of holiday, we ended up choosing a holiday for 4 days 3 nights with Star Libra to Phuket and Krabi. The date we have chosen was 23 to 26 October 2011 and we have to go to Penang for this.
Day 1: 23rd October 2011 (Penang)
We have decided to take KTMB train to Butterworth on the night before departure. The time of departure supposed to be 11 pm but it was delayed to almost 12 pm, consequently we arrived late in Butterworth about 9 am. After that, we had to take ferry to go the Penang Island.

In this cruise, all transactions are done in Malaysia Ringgit (MYR). There were 3 restaurants provided but one of it serves Halal food for Muslims. It was using buffet concept for breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper. The foods were so nice and you can eat all you can.
