Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Send to Friend ASIA Travel Latest Travel News Wednesday, 29 September 2010

Royal Caribbean International’s Legend of the Seas has added another Korean destination – Seoul – to her Asian itineraries with a maiden call at the Incheon port on Tuesday.

The 70,000-tonne, 2,074-guest cruise ship, the biggest ever to call at Incheon, arrived from Hong Kong on her 14-night cruise to Tianjin.

Traditional plaque and memento exchanges to commemorate the maiden call took place at a VIP ceremony onboard the ship.

 “Seoul is a very vibrant city with many cultural, shopping and gastronomical attractions which is rising in popularity amongst tourists in recent years. We are pleased to add Seoul to our Korean destinations on top of Busan and Jeju Island, which will give our international guests more ways to discover this country,” said Kelvin Tan, Royal Caribbean’s Regional Director, Asia Pacific. “The port of Incheon has impressed us today on this occasion with its efficiency and strong support, which prompts me to say confidently that this port will be very important in Royal Caribbean’s future plans in Asia. Already, with our ship now sailing year round in the region and out of Busan, we hope to operate cruises from more Korean ports in the future and bring more of the world-renowned Royal Caribbean vacation experience to our Korean guests.”

Royal Caribbean is planning for Legend of the Seas to call at Incheon again for about 10 times from July next year.
