Biggest cruise ship in the region arrives for first Asian season, then Australia is next
While she made the monumental journey from one corner of the world to the other, Voyager of the Seas has also been busy in other ways. In preparation for her big debuts in Asia and Australia, she's enjoyed a freshen-up with the addition of new carpets throughout and flat screen televisions in cabins, while her casino and sports decks were also refurbished.
"Voyager of the Seas is going to astound guests with unparalleled experiences on Asian waters such as an ice-skating rink onboard and an exclusive DreamWorks experience at sea – where Po and Shrek and other celebrity DreamWorks characters will engage guests with special events like parades and interactive breakfasts. And now after her recent refreshment, guests are going to love cruising on her even more," says Adam Armstrong, commercial manager, Royal Caribbean Cruises Australia.
The largest and most amenity-filled cruise ship to sail in the region, Voyager of the Seas, will offer five cruises from Singapore, before sailing to China where she presents itineraries from Shanghai (Baoshan) and Beijing (Tianjin). Voyager of the Seas will offer cruise guests a wide range of short cruises – three-, four-, five-, seven- and eight-night itineraries in Asia – to longer, 14- to 18-night cruises in the South Pacific to New Zealand and Australia. Voyager of the Seas will wrap up her Asian season with a 14-night repositioning cruise sailing on October 22, 2012 from Singapore, arriving in Fremantle, Australia on 5 November 2012.
Those who cannot wait for her arrival in Australia can escape winter with an Asian cruise on Voyager of the Seas. Fares for the seven-night "Pearls of the Orient" cruise departing on 4 August 2012 start from $1119 per person. For additional information, visit www.royalcaribbean.com.au.
