Asia’s largest cruise vessel, Quantum of the Seas, will call Singapore home for six months next year to tap the growing cruise market.

It will be Royal Caribbean International’s longest deployment to Singapore for a quantum class liner.

To be based from November next year until April 2020, the liner will undertake 34 sailings – to and from Penang, Kuala Lumpur, Phuket, Bangkok and Ho Chi Minh – carrying up to 150,000 passengers into or out of Singapore.

The 170,000 ton, 18-deck high ship can carry up to 4,905 passengers, a 30 per cent increase in capacity for Singapore sailings. Basing it here will enable Royal Carribean to tap into the growing cruise market.

“We see Singapore as key in our strategy on two fronts. One, as a vibrant economy and two, as the destination of choice for international markets as well,” said president and chief executive Michael Bayley.
