Royal Caribbean International continues to up the ante on exceptional cruising experiences in Asia with the return of Spectrum of the Seas from October 2022 until April 2023.
With Asia’s gradual resumption of international travel and tourism, Spectrum of the Seas soothes wanderlust with itineraries that call at some of the region’s most vibrant destinations.
Options range from two-night quick breaks to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia to the nine-night indulgent retreat to Thailand and Vietnam.
The five-night Klang, Penang & Phuket Cruise, which sets sail on October 26, 2022, offers guests a chance to shop and dine at Malaysia’s capital city Kuala Lumpur, explore heritage streets and a 130-million year old rainforest in Malaysia’s Penang, and embark on soft adventures in Thailand’s Phuket. Port calls last a full day, giving guests plenty of time to make precious travel memories with their loved ones.
Spectrum of the Seas also offer a unique nine-night itinerary that calls at Vietnam’s Nga Trang and Ho Chi Minh City as well as Thailand’s Bangkok. A full-day port call at both Nha Trang and Ho Chi Minh City allows guests to explore the former’s sandy beaches and turquoise waters, marvel at picturesque boulders overlooking the waters at Hon Chong, and make time for some snorkelling, scuba diving and hiking; as well as take in the old and new faces of vibrant Ho Chi Minh City, with highlights including the War Remnants Museum in District 3 and the 130-year-old Saigon Zoo and Botanical Gardens.
Once in Bangkok, Spectrum of the Seas docks overnight, presenting expanded opportunities for guests to rediscover numerous appeals of the popular Asian city. One can have a feast at bustling street-food stalls, explore the city on a nimble tuk tuk, be in awe of world-famous Buddha statues within the Temple of the Emerald Buddha and Wat Pho Temple, or simply indulge in retail therapy.
Built to impress
Spectrum of the Seas’ port calls may be a hot draw, but the infrastructure onboard is just as impressive.
Recognised as Asia’s largest and most innovative ship, and one that is built to deliver great vacation experiences, Spectrum of the Seas is a recreation wonderland. Among its many facilities are 2,137 staterooms across 14 guest decks, three whirlpools, a rock-climbing wall, an indoor movie theatre, outdoor movie screen, spa, fitness centre, 19 distinct dining venues, numerous facilities built to entertain children of all ages, and more.
However, six unique features stand out.
Sky Pad – Recognised as Asia’s first virtual reality, bungee trampoline adventure on a cruise ship, Sky Pad transports guests into a zero-gravity zone where they could smash sweets in a sugar-coated world or travel light years into the future.
Star Moment – Live out your Frank Sinatra, Queen or Jacky Cheung dreams at Star Moment. Hit the main stage and perform for a crowd or book a private room for a special singing session with up to 10 closest friends and family. Private room rental comes with F&B package options.
Asian Flavours – Spectrum of the Seas’ collection of dining venues serve up flavours from around the world, but Asian bellies will find themselves right at home with many familiar cuisine.
Sichuan Red weaves culinary magic using authentic Sichuan spices. Highlights here includes Kao Yu simmer pot, which spotlights deep-fried fish served on a bed of tofu, vegetables and potatoes in a spicy aromatic broth; and Royal Sea Cucumber, which comes impeccably plated alongside broccoli and tangy spring onions.
Teppanyaki is a treat for the eyes and palette, as delicious dishes come with impeccable presentation and dazzling displays over a hot plate by expert chefs who elevate cooking to a performance art form. Take a gourmet journey through Japan with jumbo crispy softshell crab, sea scallops and top-quality Wagyu A4 beef.
The Hotpot brings loved ones to the table, where they can cook and enjoy their meal together. Elevating the authentic hot pot experience are stunning views of the ocean.

An in-suite slide makes getting from second floor to the first a breeze and is bound to delight all young-at-hearts, while a private cinema doubles up as the family’s very own karaoke stage.
