Royal Caribbean International’s Voyager of the Seas on May 2 made her maiden call at Bintan Island, carrying around 3,800 guests on a three-night cruise from Singapore which also called at Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang).
To celebrate the ship’s maiden call, a traditional plaque and key ceremony was held onboard, whereby Voyager of the Seas’ captain Wu Huimin exchanged plaques with Nurdin Basirun, governor of Riau Island and Frans Gunara, vice president director of Bintan Resort Cakrawala. Angie Stephen, managing director, Asia-Pacific of Royal Caribbean Cruises was also present at the ceremony.
Voyager of the Seas will call at Bintan Island on three more dates, i.e. May 5, 12 and 19.
The 15-deck ship will continue her South-east Asia season out from Singapore until late June, which includes itineraries such as the three-night cruise to Penang, four-night cruise to Penang and Phuket, and a five-night Spice of Southeast Asia cruise to Penang, Langkawi and Phuket.
