Royal Caribbean makes maiden call in Melaka
Royal Caribbean International’s Legend of the Seas has added Malacca, Malaysia to her array of Asian destinations with a maiden call there yesterday early morning on January 9. The 2,074-guest ship was on a new 2-night cruise from Singapore.
Kelvin Tan, Regional Director, APAC of Royal Caribbean Cruises said, “Our latest addition of Malacca brings another Malaysian destination to the guests of Legend of the Seas, which lets guests from other parts of the world experience more of the charming culture and heritage of Malaysia.”
Located in the southern region of the Malay Peninsula, Malacca is a historical city which has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Legend of the Seas’ shore excursions in Malacca include shopping tours with experienced guides, a palm oil and rubber tree plantation tour and a city tour of the Dutch Square, St. Paul’s Church and the A’Famosa where one can learn about Malacca’s fascinating Dutch and Portuguese colonial past.
Onboard Legend of the Seas, vacationers can look forward to an ocean of entertainment and relaxation choices such as the rock-wall, miniature golf course and the beautiful Solarium indoor pool. One can savour a wide variety of international cuisine in the two-tier glass-walled Romeo and Juliet Dining Room, watch Broadway-style musicals in the 800-seater theatre or try wine-tasting at the Champagne Terrace. Most of all, virtually everything onboard is included in the price.
Following this maiden call, Legend of the Seas will be visiting three more new ports-of-call in Indonesia this February, namely Bali, Semarang and Lombok as part of her 7/8 Night Bali & Semarang Cruise, to bring her guests to more exotic destinations of Asia.
