The 11-deck, 694-guest Azamara Quest cruise ship has called at the
port of Puerto Princesa in the Philippines for the first time.
The ship is on a 16-night voyage starting
from Bali which features an overnight stay in Manila, and calls at
other Asian destinations namely Komodo, Sandakan, Hualien, Naha
and ending in Osaka with a double overnight.
Sandejas-Yaptangco, Royal Caribbean International’s Representative
in the Philippines said, “Puerto Princesa is rising in popularity among tourists in recent years and we are proud to add
it to Azamara Quest’ Asian itineraries. This will give our international guests more ways to discover this country. Our
successful call today is also the result of the strong support of
the local government which marks a positive step in cruise
development for the country.”
The Puerto Princesa Subterranean
River National Park with its unspoiled natural beauty is one of
top sightseeing sights in Puerto Princesa. It has one of the most
impressive caves systems in the world and contains an 8.2 km
long underground river that flows directly into the South China
Sea. No trip to Puerto Princesa would be complete either
without a visit to the indigenous Batak tribe or island hopping
at the famous Honda Bay.
After this sailing, Azamara Quest
will be sailing a 16-night voyage from Osaka to Singapore,
following which the ship will reposition from Asia to Europe in
