Azamara Club Cruises has operated its first ever cruise to the Philippine port of Puerto Princesa.

The Azamara Quest cruise ship arrived in the city, which lies on the island of Palawan, on Monday as part of a 16-night voyage from Bali to Osaka. The ship has already called at Komodo and Sandakan, and will now move on to Manila, Hualien and Naha, before reaching Osaka.

An official ceremony was held onboard the ship to mark the maiden call, with plaque and key exchanges between Azamara Quest’s captain, Carl Smith, and the mayor of Puerto Princesa, Lucilo Bayron.

“Puerto Princesa is rising in popularity among tourists in recent years and we are proud to add it to Azamara Quest’s Asian itineraries,” said Marilen Sandejas-Yaptangco, Royal Caribbean’s representative in the Philippines. “Our successful call today is also the result of the strong support of the local government which marks a positive step in cruise development for the country.”

Puerto Princesa is famous for its UNESCO World Heritage-listed Subterranean River National Park, as well as tropical beaches and forests.

Following this voyage, the 694-passenger Azamara Quest will return from Osaka to Singapore on another 16-night cruise, before sailing to Europe in April.
