Star Cruises will use the 37,000-tonne, 11-storey MegaStar Aries to provide three voyages from the northern port of Keelung: four-day, three-night trips to Naha, capital city of Japan's Okinawa island; three-day, two-night trips to Japan's Ishikaki islet; and three-day, two-night gambling trips in Japan waters.
To promote sales, Star Cruises is offering a free ticket for each ticket sold -- and will upgrade passengers whose star sign is Aries -- for those who make bookings before March 25.
Star Cruises originally entered the Taiwan market in 1998.
