Looking for a change of pace? Skip the usual flights, trains and automobiles for a cruise ship, where the journey holds as much wonder as the destination.
Whether you’re preparing for a year-end getaway or a summer vacation, there’s no shortage of cruise options for you to choose from.
With the abundance of onboard amenities, you’ll be hard-pressed to not be entertained here. You don’t necessarily have to fork out a fortune to afford such an experience either. Here’s a round-up of the best cruise deals and promotions in Singapore for you to embark on an epic voyage with your nearest and dearest without breaking the bank.
Take advantage of Royal Caribbean International’s most affordable cruise packages such as the three-night cruise to Port Klang and Malacca. On this cruise, you’ll be onboard Voyager of the Seas (which is packed with giant high-speed waterslides, an ice-skating rink, a laser tag arena, and a surf simulator), departing from Singapore to tour Kuala Lumpur’s Port Klang and Malacca before returning back home.
Alternatively, take the five-night Spice of Southeast Asia cruise that will cover locations such as Port Klang, Penang and Phuket. Here, you’ll get to experience Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas, a lavish ship with 15 restaurants, a bespoke bar where the cocktails are made by an automaton, and the world’s highest viewing deck on a ship. This package costs from $391 if you depart on December 9, 2019.
