Royal Caribbean International’s Spectrum of the Seas has arrived in Hong Kong, attended by over 600 invited government officials, industry stakeholders and loyal guests.
Officiating guest Edward Yau Tang-wah, secretary for commerce and economic development said the Hong Kong government has been joining hands with the Hong Kong Tourism Board and the trade in promoting the development of cruise tourism in Hong Kong.
With accommodation for 5,622 guests and 2,147 staterooms, Spectrum of the Seas set off on its maiden voyage to Asia from Europe just a month ago. Highlights of the new cruise include a first-at-sea virtual reality, bungee trampoline experience, suites-only area, Ultimate Family Suite and a Sichuan specialty restaurant.
Guests can also now utilise the new Royal app to plan and manage their cruise holiday while on board. The app enables access to the guest’s suite, controls amenities inside the suite, and allows guests to make specialty and dining reservations, reserve shore excursions and shows, access their bill in real-time, and save daily activities to their calendar.
From December 2019 to January 2020, Spectrum of the Seas will offer six cruises from Hong Kong. The seven-night Japan & Philippines Cruise departing on December 22, 2019 and January 2, 2020 will visit Ilocos in the Philippine where guests can enjoy the beaches and explore historic Vigan City, home to Spanish baroque colonial architecture.
There is also the four-night Best of Chan May Cruise, departing on December 18 and 29, 2019.
From November 2020 to January 2021, Spectrum of the Seas will return to Hong Kong for nine homeport sailings. In addition, there will be two special Olympic-themed sailings in 2020 in celebration of the great sports event. Departing from Shanghai on July 25 and August 2 respectively, Spectrum of the Seas will bring guests to Tokyo during the Summer Olympics and stay overnight to indulge in the exciting Olympic sports enthusiasm.
