Royal Caribbean's Mariner of the Seas has wrapped up her first cruise season in Singapore. It began in November and was part of the winter/spring cruise season and made stops at Shanghai on an 8-night cruise with calls at Ho Chi Minh City (Phu My), Hong Kong and Xiamen.
Mariner of the Seas' season included 29 sailings, which was comprised of 3, 4 and 5 night itineraries. Highlights included the festive cruises for Christmas, New Year and Chinese New Year with special entertainment and feasts, as well as theme cruises namely the world’s first all-champions Latin dance competition cruise in January and the Valentine’s Cruise.
Mariner of the Seas is headed to Shanghai for the summer and fall but will return to Singapore in November 2014, where she will offer 3 to 5 night cruises with Kuantan the newest port-of-call, on top of Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang), Langkawi and Phuket.
Mariner of the Seas will also add more long scenic sailings of 7 nights to her repertoire of Southeast Asian itineraries, due to popular demand. These come with overnight stays at Phuket or Bangkok (Laem Chabang) as the highlights, which offer more time for guests to explore these popular 2 ports-of-call from day to night as well as the ship’s wide range of amenities and activities. Examples are the 7-Night Spice of Southeast Asia cruise to Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang), Penang, Langkawi and Phuket (overnight) on January 19 and 26, 2015 and the 7-Night Thailand & Vietnam cruise to Bangkok (Laem Chabang) (overnight) and Ho Chi Minh City (Phu My) on February 11.
