In addition, SuperStar Virgo's bars and restaurants will serve seasonal dishes and beverages starting Jan. 15.

In the year ahead, passengers will get free access to international audio and visual performances, including European illusionist Vincent Vignaud, known as the David Copperfield of France, presenting a new show, 'Imagine.' The new song and dance production 'Memory Lane' will feature 1950s music from Shanghai and Hollywood. And the musical '1001 Nights' is based on the classic Arabian tale.
