Royal Caribbean International is bringing an exhilarating spectrum of adrenaline-pumping activities and experiences to Singapore onboard the Spectrum of the Seas in 2022.

The arrival of the ship also heralds the much-anticipated comeback of destination cruising. Cruisers can look forward to spectacular 3- to 9-night sailings that will depart from Singapore and touch base at Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam starting from 21 October 2022.

The first Quantum Ultra Class ship boasts the cruise line’s first private enclave for suite guests, innovative dining concepts and other creative features and adventures.

“We are thrilled to introduce a spectrum of new adventures with Spectrum of the Seas, which features ground-breaking escapades exclusively designed for the Asian market, a testament to Royal Caribbean’s confidence about the potential of the cruising industry in the region. We have also seen a surge in repeat cruisers, as well as a number of new to cruise guests,” said Angie Stephen, Vice President, Singapore, Royal Caribbean International.

“At the same time, we are excited to extend Quantum’s ultimate ocean getaways once again through early next year and continue to cater to the strong demand for sailings from Singapore,” Stephen added.

From savouring popular Asian-inspired cuisine consisting of teppanyaki and hot pot-style dining to exciting the senses with an entertainment extravaganza touching on the cultures, colours, music and dance styles of China, Persia and India, Spectrum of the Seas also offers the perfect combination of state-of-the-art high-tech experiences that provide adrenaline junkies and adventure-seeking guests a wealth of thrilling onboard experiences.

Spectrum of the Seas is lauded to be an Asian adventure filled with an  array of action and activities that include:
•    Asia’s first Sky Pad, a virtual reality, bungee trampoline adventure where guests get strapped in and don a headset to transport themselves to another time and planet.
•    Royal Caribbean’s first and exclusive Suite Enclave, which features the exquisite Royal Suite Class Star, Sky and Sea accommodations in a private area, supremely positioned at the forward end of the ship. Guests booked in these luxury accommodations have exclusive access, an elevator, private restaurants and a dedicated lounge area.
•    Cutting-edge venues such as Two70 that offers a 270-degree ocean view by day and transforms into a multidimensional theatre by night. This transformative space boasts six Roboscreens, live performers and aerialists to create striking visuals.
•    The largest indoor active space at sea, Seaplex, features bumper cars, roller skating, laser tag, fencing, archery and more.
•    A karaoke venue where family and friends can belt out their favourite songs.
•    The FlowRider surf simulator; the North Star, an all-glass capsule that ascends 300 feet above the ocean; and RipCord by iFly, a sky diving experience at sea.

In terms of safety and hygiene, the ship is outfitted with robust onboard ventilation systems, enhanced cleaning and sanitisation, and a strict requirement for all crew members to be vaccinated. Royal Caribbean also requires all guests 12 and older to be fully vaccinated for all new bookings made from 1 October 2021 onwards.

This vaccine requirement is one of the many ways Royal Caribbean is playing its part in stemming the tide of Covid-19 infections and safeguarding the well-being of its guests and crew.

Spectrum of the Seas’ cruises are now open for bookings.
