Planning to visit Japan sometime in 2023? If you haven’t been keeping up with the news about Royal Caribbean and its long-awaited international cruises to somewhere (finally!), holidaymakers like you and I are in for a treat.
Cruises typically range from around three to four days, but this takes it to a whole new level with a whopping 12 nights from onboard the swanky Spectrum of the Seas. That’s right — you can now find one-of-a-kind long-distance 12-night cruises from Singapore to Japan by Royal Caribbean.
Taking flights to Japan is a no-brainer, but sailing there? Now that’s a first for me.
Tickets for the 12 Night Singapore To Tokyo Cruise departing on 19 September 2023 are priced from just S$1,406 per person for the Interior Room. You can explore these five cities in Japan, Hong Kong, and Vietnam before arriving in Tokyo (Yokohama), Japan, where there’s plenty to eat, see, and do.
- Nha Trang, Vietnam
- Hong Kong
- Nagasaki, Japan,
- Kumamato, Japan
- Kagoshima, Japan
Alternatively, you can choose to fly to Tokyo as per normal, and then sail back to Singapore on Royal Caribbean’s 12 Night Tokyo to Singapore Cruise, which will depart on 1 October 2023. Prices start from S$1,318 per person, which isn’t crazy expensive.
If you’ve always dreamt about exploring lesser-known cities like Ishigaki, Okinawa, and Kobe (I’d disembark just to go eat kobe beef) you can look forward to hitting up the following destinations:
- Mt Fuji (Shimizu), Japan
- Kobe, Japan
- Okinawa (Naha), Japan
- Ishigaki, Japan
- Hong Kong
- Hue/Danang (Chan May)
But if you want to go all out, both sailings on 19 September and 1 October can be enjoyed back-to-back, which means you can visit up to 10 destinations across three countries over the thrilling 24-night adventure — it’s practically a month-long joyride on the seas!
You also don’t have to worry about finding things to do onboard Spectrum of the Seas, given that the vessel is jam-packed with activities for families, thrill-seekers, and avid explorers.
Highlights include a virtual reality bungee trampoline adventure, a surf and skydiving simulator, bumper cars, and an all-glass observation deck that takes guests 300 feet above sea level, just to name a few.
The cruise also plays host to a variety of dining options, many of which showcase refined Asian flavours — there’s really no better time to attempt dining at every single restaurant (that’s what I would do).
So what are you waiting for? Tickets are selling fast, so get your sea legs and make your bookings ASAP — Japan’s calling!
