Royal Caribbean's Quantum of the Seas will undergo a multi-million dollar month-long renovation later in October in preperation for her new Southeast Asian season out from Singapore from this November.
The ship will enter dry dock upon arrival in Singapore to give Quantum a new look and feel, as well new features such as the laser tag game and escape room that can be enjoyed by guests of all ages.
Every five years, Royal Caribbean ships undergo routine maintenance work. Quantum is ending her four-year plus deployment in China and she will next undergo renovation to prepare for her new Southeast Asian season out from Singapore from this November.
This week, Quantum of the Seas visited Keelung Port, as she is making her way from Tianjin to Singapore over a 12-night one-way journey which also includes Fukuoka, Hong Kong, Hue/Danang and Ho Chi Minh City as ports-of-call.
Quantum of the Seas will first offer 34 Southeast Asian cruises over six months from November 2019 to April 2020. The ship will then return for a longer season in October 2020, with a total of 40 sailings over seven months till April 2021– the cruise line’s longest ever deployment in the region for a Quantum Class ship.
Her itineraries include 4-night cruises to Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang) and Penang or Phuket, 5-night cruises to Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang), Penang and Phuket and a 7-night cruise to Bangkok (Laem Chabang) (with an overnight) and Ho Chi Minh City. This will also be the ship’s first time in the region for festive cruises of Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year.
"The potential of the Taiwan cruise market is tremendous, being the second largest in Asia. There is stronger awareness here for our international style of cruising and our world’s most innovative ships thanks to our trade partners’ efforts in the recent years. Now with our best and newest in the region namely Quantum of the Seas, we are confident of attracting even more Taiwanese to cruise with Royal Caribbean," said Josh Wen.
