Royal Caribbean Sets Epic Journey for New Ship that Will Cater to the Asian Market
Royal Caribbean will offer an epic, 53-day voyage from the USA to China in 2015 on its newest ship, Quantum of the Seas.
Kicking off on May 2, 2015 in the New York area, the sailing will include a trans-Atlantic crossing to the Mediterranean followed by passage through the Suez Canal to the Persian Gulf, Indian Ocean and Asia.
Along the way, the 4,180-passenger vessel will call at nearly two dozens ports including Barcelona; Aqaba, Jordan; Dubai; Cochin, India; Muscat, Oman; Penang, Malaysia; Singapore; and Hong Kong.
The Quantum Global Odyssey cruise, as it’s being called, is a prelude to Quantum of the Seas taking up residence in Shanghai, China, from where it will sail three- to eight-night cruises primarily aimed at the Chinese market.
