THE Malaysian Association of Tour and Travel Agents (MATTA) announced Royal Caribbean International as the official cruise for the MATTA Fair which starts today until Sept 4 at World Trade Centre, Kuala Lumpur.

Royal Caribbean International has been its partner since 2017 and is set to return to offer MATTA Fair visitors a unique set of experiences and luxury on the high seas.

This will include special deals inclusive of a sensational line-up of itineraries on Spectrum of the Seas for 2023-2024.

Visitors to the fair have the option to choose between short, fuss-free getaways with itineraries for 3 or 4 nights, and longer-haul cruises comprising a mix of itineraries for 5, 7, 9 and 12 nights to thoroughly experience the best of Asia’s natural wonders, said MATTA Fair September 2022 oversight committee chairman Rocky Kho.

The growth of international cruise tourism in Malaysia serves as a testament to the efforts put into developing the sector since 2009.

Malaysian ports are fully equipped with extensive and state-of-the art facilities, offering convenient berthing spots for cruise ships from all over the world.

The upcoming deployment features two exclusive 12-night itineraries which allow guests to visit up to seven destinations across three countries all within one sailing, and can also be done back-to-back, which would cover 10 unique destinations across 24 nights at sea.

“Recovery of the cruise industry is in full swing, and we are thrilled to be called the favourite cruise line at this year’s 2022 KL MATTA Fair,” said Royal Caribbean International Asia-Pacific regional sales director Kenneth Yeo.

“We have received more than 10,000 bookings since Singapore-Malaysia borders reopened earlier this year as cruises continue to be great value for money with incredible dining, Broadway-style theatre performances and world-class attractions all included in one ticket fare.

“With longer itineraries onboard Spectrum of the Seas covering even more destinations around Asia, the ROI on our guests’ vacation dollar has gone up and we are excited to bring more Malaysians on adventures around the region,” added Yeo.

Admission to the fair is free. It is open from 10am to 9pm for the three days.

Visitors are encouraged to use public transport.
