Depends what you want and if you have cruised before. More of an etiquette to follow on Royal Caribbean. Star Cruises may be better f it's your fist time or are travelling with kids.

Star Virgo is more of a local line - with the main emphasis being on the casino,.

Royal Caribbean is more of an overall cruising experience

I hope my reply is not too late! If you're taking a cruise for the first time, I would recommend SuperStar Virgo. It would be a great experience for the first-time cruise-goers. A 3N cruise would be just right for the relatively smaller ship. You will be able to attend most shows (which are really entertaining!) and also the restaurants.

I cannot review Royal Caribbean because I haven't been on it yet, going in March though! And cabin choice is crucial to some people too. Do take a lookout for specific cabins which have obstructed views or is situated too close to the public areas!

Last but not least, the service quality on SuperStar Virgo is great! They are really friendly and will not hesitate to attend to you!

If having Indian food is an important factor in your cruise selection, then you should go for Superstar Virgo. There is a dedicated Indian vegetarian section in the buffet menu at one of the restaurants on Superstar Virgo. In addition, Virgo also has a fine dining Indian restaurant onboard. I have been on Virgo and yes, they are a bit liberal about implementation of the dress code and other etiquettes. But Virgo is a well run cruise ship and the cruise is quite enjoyable. I don't quite agree that casino is the main attraction on Virgo. There are plenty of good entertainment options onboard.
