A "wider range of ports" are available for cruise ships to dock at in the Asia Pacific region next season, according to Royal Caribbean Cruises
Asiaone Travel, reporting on an article in the Business Times, notes that Royal Caribbean Cruises
is deploying one of its cruise liners, Legend of the Seas
, in the region from November 2009.
The dimensions of the cruise ship will enable it to fit under the Sentosa cable car, the publication notes, allowing it to dock at the Singapore Cruise Centre and Shanghai's cruise terminal on the north Bund.
Other ports the cruise liner will call at will include those in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Yokohama and Busan.
"The positive response to our first season with Rhapsody of the Seas
has been very encouraging and we are delighted to offer year-round choices to holidaymakers in the region," president of Royal Caribbean Cruises
Adam Goldstein said.
Legend of the Seas is one of the Vision family of Royal Caribbean Cruises ships, which also includes Vision of the Seas
, Grandeur of the Seas
and Enchantment of the Seas
