Royal Caribbean is reaffirming their confidence in Singapore as the region’s leading cruising gateway and its commitment to grow its cruise offerings in the Singapore region by homeporting Quantum of the Seas in Singapore.
Over the last few years the Asian cruise market has seen tremendous growth and Singapore has become one of the most significant cruise destinations and cruise source markets in the region.
In response to the strong demand from Singapore and the region, Royal Caribbean has decided to homeport Quantum of the Seas in Singapore from November 2019 to April 2020. This will be the cruise line’s longest ever deployment in the city for a Quantum Class ship.
Over her 34 sailings during this period Quantum of the Seas is expected to add some 150,000 guests to the Singapore cruising scene. With this 18-deck high, 168,666 gross registered ton ship, which can carry 4,905 guests in total, Royal Caribbean will increase its capacity in Singapore by 30 percent.
Quantum’s itineraries will include 4-night cruises to Penang or Phuket, 5-night cruises to Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang), Penang and Phuket, a 7-night cruise to Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang), Penang and Phuket (with an overnight) and a 7-night cruise to Bangkok (Laem Chabang) (with an overnight) and Ho Chi Minh City.
The smart ship Quantum of the Seas currently offers the ‘North Star’ – an observation capsule that rises 92 metres over the ocean, ‘Two70’ – a hi-tech entertainment venue, cocktails served by robots at the ‘Bionic Bar’, skydiving and surfing experiences and ‘SeaPlex’, the largest indoor activity space at sea – housing a basketball court, roller-skating, bumper cars and more.
The ship also boasts 18 restaurant venues with cuisines from around the globe, including imaginative cuisine at Wonderland and Jamie’s Italian by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver.
Prior to her return to Singapore Quantum of the Seas will be revitalised. The multi-million dollar project will see the ship refreshed and upgraded to provide the best of the next-generation cruise experience for guests in this region.
