Satisfied with the return of passengers on its current offer of short cruise voyages aboard Spectrum of the Seas, since Singapore opened up for foreign tourists earlier this year, cruise operator Royal Caribbean has finalised the lineup of its voyages on Spectrum of the Seas for the next season, 2023-2024.
One major difference is that unlike this season when the ship was limited to short sailings and to nearby destinations like Thailand and Malaysia, for next year, Royal Caribbean has opened up the travel for longer trips to destinations further away.
The cruise line is now offering a mix of new five- to 12-night voyages that whisk adventurers to destinations in Hong Kong, Japan, the Philippines, Taiwan and Vietnam, in addition to the current popular short sailings to Malaysia and Thailand. Royal Caribbean says that the bookings for the next season’s cruises on board Asia’s largest ship are now open to book.
It says that the five-, seven-, nine- and 12-night itineraries offer memorable adventures and must-see destinations like Bangkok in Thailand, Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam and Manila in the Philippines.
“During Royal Caribbean’s first year-round season in Singapore, we have continued to see travellers return for more,” says Royal Caribbean vice president Angie Stephen. “Being able to visit international shores again has only increased that demand. People want to cruise with us, and now they can set their sights on new adventures for next year,” she adds.
“The combination of Asian-themed experiences and signature favourites on board with the opportunities to explore Asia’s energetic cities, traditional architecture and exotic landscapes makes for the perfect way to embark on the revenge travel vacationers are seeking today,” Stephen says.
The cruise line also boasts three- and four-night getaways to destinations like Penang, Malaysia, and Phuket, Thailand, on Spectrum of the Seas to round out the next year-round season.
The upcoming cruises include two 12-night sailings, which visit as many as seven destinations across three countries. These sailings can also be taken back-to-back, stopping at a new spot almost every day for the 24-night adventure, including Hong Kong, Tokyo, Mount Fuji, Nha Trang and more, says a press release by Royal Caribbean.
