Singapore Tourism Board inks partnership with India’s TIRUN

TIRUN will charter Royal Caribbean International’s Voyager of the Seas for sailings out of Singapore
The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has inked a partnership deal with India’s travel agency TIRUN Travel Marketing under a Cruise Development Fund (CDF).

The partnership will see TIRUN charter Royal Caribbean International’s Voyager of the Seas for sailings out of Singapore, offering Indian customers itineraries in Southeast Asia.

'It has been a fruitful collaboration with Singapore Tourism Board thanks to which we have managed to enhance our reach and capture a larger market in the Indian traveller segment,' said Ratna Chadha, chief executive of TIRUN.

STB’s CDF, designed to encourage home-porting of new cruise ships and extension of existing deployments out of Singapore, now also supports travel and event organisers alongside cruise lines.

The itineraries have been especially designed for the Indian family market and range from three-night to eight-night sailings from Singapore to destinations including Kuala Lumpur, Phuket, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Nha Trang.
