Royal Caribbean International’s Voyager of the Seas will kick-start her maiden Asian season in May 2012 with a series of Southeast Asian cruises from Singapore.

The 14 passenger-deck Voyager of the Seas which carries 3,840 guests at total occupancy will first be arriving in Singapore in May 2012 on an 11-night cruise from Dubai, which features Goa, Cochin, Penang and Kuala Lumpur in the itinerary.

From May to June which coincides with Singapore’s school holiday period, she will be offering short cruises of three to five nights to Penang, Kuala Lumpur and Phuket, as well as an 8-night cruise to Shanghai that features Ho Chi Minh, Xiamen and an overnight in Hong Kong.

The ship will also be offering five to seven-night North Asian cruises from Shanghai and Tianjin visiting a variety of Japanese and Korean destinations such as Fukuoka, Kobe, Okinawa and Jeju from June to October.

With Voyager of the Seas and Legend of the Seas operating in Asia next year, Royal Caribbean International’s capacity in the whole region will be more than double as measured by total guest count.

The 137,276-gross registered ton Voyager of the Seas will be one of the largest and most innovative ships to ever homeport in Asia. Her arrival will give cruise enthusiasts here a chance to experience directly from Singapore her wide choice of onboard activities and entertainment, such as the ice-skating rink, a boulevard of shops and cafes located along the Royal Promenade and a full-sized sports court.

Other onboard innovations include the in-line skating track, water slide, rock-climbing wall, mini-golf course and golf simulator. In addition, there is a three-tier theatre, themed bars and lounges as well as a mezzanine split level nightclub.

There are numerous dining options onboard including the 3-tier dining room and specialty restaurants namely Portofino Italian restaurant and Johnny Rockets 50s’ style diner. The choice of accommodation is also wide-ranging with over 40% more staterooms and five more categories than today’s offerings in the region, ranging from luxurious Royal Suites to unique Promenade staterooms with views overlooking the Royal Promenade.

“We look forward to welcoming cruisers in Singapore onboard Voyager of the Seas and wowing them with her exciting, one-of-a-kind features that will change consumers’ mindset about cruises in Asia. Singapore has always been a key homeport for Royal Caribbean International in Asia due to her excellent infrastructure and global connectivity, and we are pleased to feature her as the first homeport for Voyager of the Seas’ maiden Asian season,” said Michael Bayley, Royal Caribbean Cruises’ executive vice president, International. “Deploying this third and largest-ever ship here is also huge milestone for Royal Caribbean in Asia, which underscores our heightened confidence in the region’s potential and deepened commitment to growing our regional presence. At the same time, we hope that the arrival of a ship of her size and amenities will create a new level of awareness and interest for cruising amongst travellers, and in turn, a historic momentum that will help push the infrastructure development for larger cruise ships across Asia.”

Voyager of the Seas will be one of the first ships to homeport at Singapore’s new International Cruise Terminal, scheduled to open next year. Jennifer Yap, Managing Director, Singapore, said, “Bringing this ship here demonstrates the importance of Singapore to Royal Caribbean’s regional business strategy, and this will be boosted by the soon-to-be-open International Cruise Terminal. We are confident that our company can grow hand-in-hand more than ever with Singapore’s regional cruise hub goal in the years to come.”
