Voyager of Sea woos Asian travellers


KUALA LUMPUR, 12 September 2018 Royal Caribbean International announced at the MATTA fair last weekend it would resume its popular cruises aboard Voyager of the Seas.

Cruise packages were up for grabs at a starting price of MYR518, but only for fair visitors booking during the consumer travel show.

The cruise line was active selling cruise itineraries to Malaysian travel consumers visiting the biannual MATTA Travel Fair held in Kuala Lumpur at the weekend.

Voyager of Sea is credited with being one the region’s largest cruise ships capable of hosting up to 4,000 passengers on its 15 decks.

During a visit to the cruise line’s cluster of 12 booths, sales staff were enthusiastically selling the ship’s facilities including its sports deck with a ‘FlowRider’ surf simulator, rock-climbing wall and mini-golf, ice-skating rink and adjacent to a 3D movie  theatre.

To appeal to an Asian clientele the cruise places considerable emphasis on its three main dining locations plus speciality restaurants. Cruise prices are full board including all meals, but not alcoholic drinks.

During the Matta Fair, Royal Caribbean was selling discounted cruise packages that are valid for sailings up to June 2019. It offers more than 70 sailings from Singapore and MATTA Fair browsers were eligible for discounts that were exclusive to the fair.

Spectrum of the Seas, operating out Singapore, is the first Quantum Ultra Class ship with a 5,600-passenger capacity.

It claims in its promotional literature to have the first-at-sea Virtual Reality bungee trampoline experience and skydiving simulator plus the noisy bumper cars and roller skating; great for kids, but might turn off the traditional cruise addict accustomed to snoozing in a deckchair.

Royal Caribbean International gained additional media attention due to its official partnership and sponsor deal with MATTA.

MATTA Travel Fair’s next edition will take place 15 to 17 March 2019.
