Star Cruises closes UK representation office

Star Cruises has closed its UK representation office with the loss of three staff.

Michael Dupont, assistant vice president of sales for Europe, is among the three redunandancies. He has led the Star Cruises sales and marketing function in Europe for more than 12 years, driving the brand into new international markets, including the first Star Cruises ship to be based outside Australasia in summer 2006 when the cruise line offered Malta-based Mediterranean cruises. Prior to this, Dupont worked for Royal Caribbean.

Star Cruises says it will continue to offer its Singapore-based ship the SuperStar Virgo for sale through travel agents in the UK and Ireland. Information on rates, product and sales support will be offered from the cruise line’s Asia-based offices.

Star Cruises’ parent company Malaysia-owned Genting Group owns half of Norwegian Cruise Line.

Agents selling Star Cruises should redirect any queries to or for product support contact Joyce Toh on, or for sales and marketing, Braydon Holland on
