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.
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
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.
