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 gamblingand 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 tastyeven 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.
