Cruise

Next Generation Cruising

by Sherri Eisenberg

KNOW WHEN TO HOLD 'EM

What: Star Cruises

Where: Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Thailand, and Malaysia

Perfect for: Asian culture lovers and card hounds. Makes an excellent add-on to a Hong Kong vacation.

Youth Factor: Launching out of Asian ports like Singapore and Mumbai, these cruises emphasize gambling—and they have the glitz and sheen of a large casino. (Picture white baby-grand pianos, tons of shiny brass, and plenty of neon.) Games include blackjack, slots, Caribbean stud poker, and roulette.

Cruise Mates: Sharks (of the card variety).

High Seas: The Asian-tinged restaurants, including Indian and Chinese options, are authentic and top-rate. If you want dim sum for breakfast, you'll find the dumplings fresh and tasty—even if you're a little less than fresh after a long night at the tables.

Rough Sailing: Trying to figure out the rules for dice games like Pai Gow and Tai Sai. And finding new friends who speak English.

The Deal: Three-night cruises out of Singapore start at $424 per person.
