If you have been planning to spend your next holiday out on the sea then the Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents or MATTA is the perfect event for you. From there, you should take a peek into the booths hosted by Royal Caribbean International or RCI.
It was the first time ever that the Royal Caribbean International is advertised as the official cruise line during the fair. The event took hold at the PWTC or Putra World Trade Centre from the 17th of March until the 19th.
According to Sean Treacy, the managing director of Royal Caribbean International Ltd in the Asia Pacific, the international cruise brand was able to occupy around four booths which were located at the Hall Three. The set up made use of props such as some parts of the cruise ship.
He said that the visitors were surprised by the set up and it also made it easier for them to spot the company because of the decor used.
During the event, the Royal Caribbean International was able to provide Malaysian holidaymakers with different types of products from the cruise but Treacy clarified that the main focus was on the cruise line which is the Ovation of the Seas.
Ovation of the Seas was declared as the largest cruise ship in operation in Asia and it will be present in the region starting the 6th of March until the middle of next month. The cruise ship is set to be sailing from Singapore.
Treacy also added that the passenger ship can accommodate around 4,905 people on board and it is consists of 18 decks. There will be bumper cars, surf simulation system, skydiving, bionic bas that will be operated by robot arms as well as glass capsule called North Star that will transport the passenger 90 meters from sea level in order to experience a panoramic view of the Straits of Malacca.
Aside from Ovation of the Seas, there are a total of 10 cruises that will set sail from Singapore such as the three to five nights that will travel to Bangkok, Phuket and Penang. If you prefer to visit Bangkok on land than on sea, you can stay at a hotel near Central Embassy.
