Royal Caribbean to resume Japan visits

ROYAL Caribbean International is intending to resume cruise operations in Japan, in view of the stabilised situation there and recent lifting of travel advisories by countries such as Singapore (TTG Asia e-Daily, May 13) and China.

The cruise line will now deploy Legend of the Seas to ports of call in the country, starting with Okinawa on August 1, after its Hong Kong summer season.

The ship will then operate 11 sailings, including a number of charters to destinations such as Okinawa, Fukuoka, Kagoshima, Beppu, Nagasaki and Hokkaido, from late July to early October.

Royal Caribbean said the sailings were mostly based on the ship’s itineraries originally planned for this year, which do not call at areas affected by the disaster.
