Departing Singapore, Voyager of the Seas soon calls Australia home

After a massive debut Asian season, today Voyager of the Seas says farewell to Singapore as she makes a bee-line for her new home Down Under.

Voyager of the Seas, the biggest and most innovative ship to be based in the region, is carrying over 3,200 guests on an Asia and Australia cruise. The 14-night voyage will take guests to Bangkok (where they will stay for a night) and Ho Chi Minh City, before sailing to Port Hedland, then arriving in Perth on November 5.

"While her debut Asian season had been very popular, I am very confident that Voyager of the Seas' Australian season can top that.  I know that the crew on Voyager of the Seas are very much looking forward to sailing in Australia and can't wait to say "G'day". They have been very excited about coming here since the announcement Voyager of the Seas will call Australia home," says Adam Armstrong, commercial director, Royal Caribbean Cruises Australia.

When she arrives, the 137,270 tonnes Voyager of the Seas will demonstrate why the Royal Caribbean brand is synonymous with innovation, showcasing concepts never before seen at sea in Australia and New Zealand. These include a 900-seat ice skating rink; an exclusive DreamWorks at Sea experience; the Royal Promenade – a four-deck high food, shopping and entertainment "main street" within the ship; and interior cabins with a view, overlooking the Royal Promenade. There's never a dull moment onboard with a plethora of facilities to enjoy: an in-line skating track; a 9-hole miniature golf course; a grand three-deck high restaurant (the largest restaurant in Australia); and a full-sized sports court for basketball and volleyball; a two-deck nightclub; the 1,350-seat Coral Theater featuring Broadway-style production shows ; as well as a beautiful Skylight Chapel.  Families will love the massive kids and teens Adventure Ocean Club situated close to the Adventure Beach water park; and Po and Shrek will be among the many "celebrity" DreamWorks characters that will engage guests of all ages, day and night, with unique experiences - including special parades, interactive character breakfasts in the main dining room, and plenty of photo opportunities.

After her Australian summer season, Voyager of the Seas will return to sail in Asia from March to October. She will be joined by sister ship, Mariner of the Seas, which will sail her first season in Asia in 2013. Following her 2013 Asian season, Voyager of the Seas will return to Australia again in summer 2013-14.
