Royal Caribbean International (RCI)’s Spectrum of the Seas begins its year-long season in Singapore starting 11 April 2022. 

The ship’s timely arrival will continue to bolster cruise tourism as Singapore shifts towards general vaccinated travel and readies for a strong recovery, said Annie Chang, Director of Cruise, Singapore Tourism Board.

Prior to its arrival, RCI had initially scheduled sailings from Singapore between April 2022 and February 2023. However, the cruise line recently announced an extension of two months for Spectrum of the Seas' first season in the region, rounding up its deployment to a full year through to April 2023 instead.

"Extending Spectrum’s Singapore season for a full year, demonstrates Royal Caribbean’s commitment to the market and underscores the growth potential for cruising in the region,” said Angie Stephen, vice president and managing director, Asia-Pacific, RCI.

Spectrum of the Seas offers an action-packed cruise experience with its game-changing onboard attractions and modern amenities catered for Asian holidaymakers. 

Signature experiences include RipCord by iFly; North Star, an all-glass observation capsule that takes guests 300 feet above sea level; the FlowRider surf simulator; and SeaPlex, the largest indoor activity complex at sea.
