Royal Caribbean to Boost Marina Bay Capacity, Extend Season

Voyager of the Seas at Marina Bay

Royal Caribbean International announced today that the Mariner of the Seas will be starting her upcoming Southeast Asian season a month earlier, adding 10 round-trip sailings from Singapore in September 2017.

The cruise brand’s presence in the region will get an additional boost with Voyager of the Seas’ first winter/spring season from Singapore in October 2018, bringing more capacity to the region as she swaps places with sister ship Mariner of the Seas.

The 3,807-guest Mariner of the Seas will be returning to Singapore on September 10th this year for her 2017-2018 season, instead of October as originally scheduled.

Cruises include the nine-night one-way cruise from Shanghai to Singapore on September 1 with calls at Xiamen and Ho Chi Minh City plus an overnight in Hong Kong which coincides with the Singapore one-week school holidays; and a mix of three- to five-night Southeast Asian itineraries. The ship will then be deployed to Miami, Florida in April 2018, after having homeported year-round in Asia out of Singapore and China since 2013.

Meanwhile, the Voyager of the Seas will also boost the region for the 2018-2019 season. Itineraries will be revealed later this month when the season opens for sale.

Meanwhile since yesterday, Voyager of the Seas is back in Southeast Asia for a new season based in Singapore until June, featuring 13 sailings of three to five nights to Phuket, Penang and Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang) and an eight-night one-way cruise to Hong Kong, with stopovers at Bangkok (Laem Chabang) for an overnight, Ho Chi Minh City (Phu My) and Nha Trang.
