ASEAN a popular destination for Royal Caribbean


Royal Caribbean Cruises, one of the largest ocean-cruise operators in Asia, lists the ASEAN region as one of its most sought-after destinations.

The company travels to 34 Asian ports across its three brands – Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises – with the most popular being those in ASEAN: Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand, Kuala Lumpur and Penang in Malaysia, Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam and Bali in Indonesia.

“In the past five years, the popularity of the three brands’ Asia ocean cruises has quadrupled. This incredible demand has been met by an increase in capacity and the number of ships that now service the region – starting from one in 2007 and now with six beautifully modern ships regularly based in Asia,” said Sean Treacy, Commercial Director of Royal Caribbean Cruises Australasia.

“We’re also seeing a strong trend for family group cruises and multi-generational cruises. We often find that many families with ties to the region choose a cruise to reconnect with loved ones,” he said.

To celebrate, Royal Caribbean Cruises is offering deals for your clients on select voyages throughout Asia.
