Big cruise discounts at MATTA Fair

KUALA LUMPUR, 13 March 2023: The Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents has recruited Royal Caribbean International as its cruise partner for the upcoming MATTA Fair, 17 to 19 March 2023, at Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC), Kuala Lumpur.

Royal Caribbean International has booked 12 booths at the fair located in MITEC’s International Hall – Level 3, where the sales team will sell itineraries discounted 50% on Royal Caribbean’s Spectrum of the Seas for sailings from now until 28 March 2024.

Travellers can buy short three and four-night getaways to Penang and Thailand’s Phuket island. A longer nine-night cruise will explore Bangkok, Thailand; Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam; and Manila, Philippines.

In its press statement, MATTA said it believes the demand for international cruise tourism is extraordinary as more people realise its advantages over air or land travel.

“We trust that the partnership with Royal Caribbean International will be a pull factor to grow Malaysia’s cruise segment and to promote demand for cruise holidays in the region,” MATTA  concluded.

The fair is admission free and open from 1000 to 2100, Friday to Sunday, 17 to 19 March.
