Spectrum of the Seas' Singapore cruises moved forward six months

Spectrum of the Seas offers a combination of experiences specially designed for the Asian market, together with signature Royal Caribbean favorites
Spectrum of the Seas will now begin sailing six months sooner than anticipated from Singapore.

The ship, currently based in Hong Kong, will begin Singapore cruises April 11 instead of in October.

Three- and four-night sailings to nowhere are planned.

'Incredible demand'

'We have seen incredible demand for Royal Caribbean cruise holidays in Singapore. Having hosted more than 178,000 Singapore residents since we restarted cruising, bringing Spectrum six months early is truly exciting,' said Angie Stephen, VP and managing director, Asia-Pacific, Royal Caribbean International. She cited a combination of experiences specially designed for the Asian market, together with signature Royal Caribbean favorites.

'The Asia-Pacific region holds tremendous opportunity for the growth of the cruise industry,' added Kenneth Yeo, regional director of sales, Asia-Pacific, Royal Caribbean. 'The last year provided many Singapore residents the opportunity to try cruising for the first time, and from what we can see, they are hooked. As we navigate COVID-19 as an endemic, we are confident that holidaymakers around the region will see cruising as an unbeatable adventure-packed holiday option.'
