Royal Caribbean International’s Spectrum of the Seas has made her maiden call to Bloomberry Cruise Terminals’ newly constructed Ilocos Cruise Port in Salomague, Philippines.

The ship, which is the largest currently deployed in Asia, brought almost 5,000 guests to the port as part of a seven-night Japan and Philippines itinerary from Hong Kong. Passengers were ferried to and from the port’s welcome centre, touring some of the region’s historic sites. The dedicated cruise facility is the first to be built in the country.

Following her call in Salomague, Spectrum of the Seas headed to Subic Bay, Philippines before returning to Hong Kong. Royal Caribbean have confirmed further calls to the port this year, alongside ships from Genting Cruises and Noble Caledonia’s expedition ship Caledonian Sky.

Bloomberry Cruise Terminals has also finalised plans for the new Solaire Cruise Centre in Manila, Philippines. The centre will form the region’s first integrated cruise resort development with the adjacent Solaire Casino & Resort and is scheduled to open in August 2021.
