Star Cruises SuperStar Gemini the perfect Holiday Destination



Star Cruises SuperStar Gemini the perfect Holiday Destination


Yes you read the title of my post right. There is no typo. Traveling on Star Cruises SuperStar Gemini in particular can be a memorable experience.
Ships have long been used to transport goods and people from one place to another. However in today's world luxury Cruises represent the epitome of luxury and comfort. I experienced this first hand when I got the opportunity to travel on Star Cruises SuperStar Gemini.



To begin with it is a luxury cruise liner that can accommodate over 1500 passengers.
To make this journey comfortable they have a staff 1:2 ratio who manage the ship and look after the guests and keep the cruise liner in top shape.

Different people have different reasons to take a cruise and I found people from various nationalities and age groups.

There were families with children, young couples who had chosen this cruise as part of their Honeymoon and there were Senior Couples who were enjoying a leisurely life that SuperStar Gemini has to offer.
Life on the ship can be luxurious as well as rewarding. Star Cruise SuperStar Gemini offers a number of activities, food and entertainment options to its guests. I found the game of Bingo “Go for gold Jackpot Bingo” was not just easy to play but also quite rewarding as I witnessed quite a few guests walk away with winning the Bingo games .If you want to try your luck there is a full-fledged casino.
The best part is that I found that this cruise offered something for everyone. For those traveling with children there is a full-fledged activity center. It has a care taker and a large number of games and activities to keep the young ones productively occupied. It is an experience that every child should have for a positive Impact on their lives.

Apart from this there are regular activities like Cake Decorations ,Pizza Making,ice cream party ,paper art, Pajama Party and the list goes on and there are enough activities to keep the young ones not just occupied but they can also learn a new skill and enhance their knowledge about the ship and the world.
   
For the entire family there are game shows that the entire family can play, experience the Chinese Tea making demonstration or simply go to the deck and enjoy breathtaking view of Sunrise and Sunset.
For the honeymooners and the young couples there are plenty of opportunities to bond and spend quality time together. If you want to spend quality time with your loved ones then Star Cruise SuperStar Gemini is the place to be.

You could laze on the deck 11 breathe in that fresh air that is so refreshing.
Go for a Jog together on deck 7 or maybe request a song as the live band plays peppy music at various places and locations of the ship. One can request a song and if the band knows it then they eagerly play it for you. I heard beautiful Bollywood song renditions by the various artists on the ship.




The cruise lays a lot of emphasis on entertainment. So there are a number of shows lined up for you when you are on board.
These add to the charm of being on board Star Cruise SuperStarGemini and without attending them the experience would never be complete.



Food: Star Cruise SuperStarGemini has a number of restaurants and places to eat and drink. They offer a wide range of cuisines to suit its various guests. They serve Indian , Chinese ,Asian  and Western Cuisines.
There is so much food with so much variety to suit each palate that one cannot possibly go hungry if one is looking in the right places. If you are a vegetarian or a Jain, do not get worried these meals are readily available.
I have listed the restaurants on board Star Cruise SuperStarGemini. These specialize in different kind of foods. The restaurants on board are of two type’s  all inclusive restaurants that one can go to and eat without paying anything extra. You can go and eat here and your meal cost is covered in the ticket. The restaurants not in the inclusive list are the ones that one can go eat and pay.
For each day you can check the list of inclusive restaurants in the Navigator which is the Navigation tool or map to follow the activities for the day on the ship. This is the daily sheet of paper delivered to you in in your cabin.
For the early risers there is Observatory Lounge/KTV on Deck 12 Fwd

Time for me to #LoveJatao

Looking back at my childhood I consider myself to be extremely lucky that I got the opportunity to spend quality time with my grandparents.

I have fond memories of spending time with them. My grandfather used to take me to the garden to play and read out stories to me from his collection of books.

A lot changed over time. As I grew up so did the role of my grandparents. From a caregiver they became my constant companion, my best friends and the pillars of my life.

The first day when I went to school was the big day for me and I was apprehensive about stepping alone into the big world outside.

My grandfather took the responsibility of taking me to school. With him by my side I felt protected and prepared myself to enter a new environment. From that day onwards my grandfather took upon himself the responsibility of taking me to school. As a routine he would take me to school every morning on his scooter and I loved the experience.

In those days his scooter was his pride and he loved riding it.

His scooter used to be his prized possession. He was the only person to have one in the locality and no one was allowed to even touch it. I was special to him and I was the only one allowed to touch it or even press the horn button. Every time he offered me a ride, it used to be a treat to remember.

I am a foodie like him and I remember how he used to go to a particular restaurant in another part of the city and get sweet and savory treats for us.

It was one of his favorite places to hang out. It is here that he would meet up with friends or go around meeting old neighbors as he grew up in that locality.

So to make the day special I have secretly contacted all his friends and arranged a small getogether at the same restaurant and I plan to go with him and enjoy the sight when he finds all his old friends at one place waiting to greet him and spend quality time together.

The trip would be a special day for me too and for making the day that much more special I have got his old scooter serviced and to relive those old days I plan to recreate the drive on the scooter experience. The only difference would be that this time it would be a reversal of roles. I would be driving it and he would sit pillion, a role reversal of sorts from the day when I used to hold him tightly and sit behind him on the scooter.

After all with grandparents day on the 10th of September it is time to #LoveJatao for our grandparents.

I look forward to hear from you how would you celebrate Grandparents DayDo share a selfie with your grandparents on Sept. 10, 2017 on Twitter or Facebook with #LoveJatao & tag @blogadda to win a goodie from Parachute Advansed.
