Bert Hernandez, senior vice-president, International, said: “This is the moment we, along with Chinese holidaymakers, have been waiting for. Our return to China is an exciting milestone that could only be marked with Spectrum of the Seas, which became a household name with Chinese families and travellers alike when it debuted in Shanghai as the latest and greatest Royal Caribbean ship in 2019.

“We thank the government of China for establishing a pathway forward and continue to be committed to expanding the cruise industry in a region we have sailed from for more than a decade.

“This has also opened up a world of opportunities to expand the variety of holidays in Asia as another award-winning ship sets sail in the region with the introduction of Anthem of the Seas in Singapore.”
