Edited by Travel Weekly


    Families and friends can now book 4- and 7-night holidays on Royal Caribbean International’s Spectrum of the Seas and be one of the first to cruise to international destinations on Asia’s largest and most innovative ship in 2024-2025.

    The cruise line’s highlight anticipated return to China is set for April 2024, when Spectrum sails from Shanghai to spots like Fukuoka, Okinawa, Nagasaki and Osaka, Japan. The all-new holidays are open for bookings on the cruise line’s website.

    “Chinese passengers have been eagerly awaiting to wander and make memories throughout Asia again, and we are delighted to make that possible as the first international cruise line to open for bookings and cruise in China. And what better way to mark Royal Caribbean’s homecoming than with the return of Spectrum of the Seas, a ship that was specifically designed for Asia,” said Dr. Zinan Liu, senior vice president and chairman, Asia, Royal Caribbean Group.

    “Today, we can proudly proclaim, ‘We are back in China!’’

    Specially designed for Asia and travellers of all ages, Spectrum features a lineup of restaurants and entertainment with regionally inspired menus and shows, like Hot Pot, Teppanyaki and Sichuan Red, as well as karaoke lounge Star Moment, Showgirls in the Royal Theater and Silk Road in the one-of-a-kind Two70, where artistry, robots and technology combine to create jaw-dropping performances.

    Alongside the familiar comforts are adventures only on Royal Caribbean, including skydiving on the RipCord by iFly, scaling more than 300 feet above the ocean on North Star, the all-glass observation capsule, and bumper cars and sports in the largest indoor activity space at sea, SeaPlex.

    And when it comes to luxury, the ship’s exclusive suite enclave has it covered. The luxe experiences include everything from a two-level, 2,809-square-foot Ultimate Family Suite that features an in-suite slide and accommodates up to 11 for the ultimate multigenerational family holiday, to private dining, shopping and more.

    Passengers can book their holiday to far-flung destinations on Spectrum at Royal Caribbean’s website.
