Royal Caribbean's Voyager of the Seas arrived yesterday in Xiamen, China after she departed Singapore, thus marking the first stop in China for the mega ship.

According to Royal Caribbean's Managing Director of China and Asia, Liu Zinan, the city of Xiamen was chosen as the first stop for Voyager of the Seas in China because Xiamen has a geographical advantage and it is a cruise ship market with huge potential.

This is the first time a giant cruise ship has docked in China, which signifies Royal Caribbean beginning to take the Chinese cruise market seriously.

After Xiamen, Voyager of the Seas will sail to Shanghai.
