Legend of the Seas set for Asian swan song

ROYAL Caribbean International’s Legend of the Seas will be returning to Singapore for her final season this October, and will complete her long-running Asian deployment next April.

From October 31, 2012 till April 1, 2013, the cruise ship will offer a mix of popular and new South-east Asian itineraries from Singapore, including several two- to seven-night sailings to Malacca, Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi and Phuket.

Other highlights include the four- and five-night festive cruises for Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year, the new seven-night Borneo Explorer Cruise to new ports-of-call Kota Kinabalu and Bandar Seri Begawan, and the five-night Bangkok and Koh Samui Cruise.

Prior to being based in Singapore, Legend of the Seas will offer a series of four- to nine-night North Asian sailings out of Yokohama and Shanghai from September to October. Highlights include the nine-night Russia & Hokkaido Cruise to Vladivostok and for the first time, Japan’s Muroran and Kushiro.

The ship’s Hong Kong season in October will line up itineraries to Taiwan, Vietnam and China, calling at Manila, Taipei, Halong Bay and Sanya, and new ports-of-call Boracay and Kota Kinabalu.
