Voyager largest ship to Busan

Royal Caribbean International’s Voyager of the Seas is the largest ship to visit Busan in South Korea after her maiden call to the city on 19 July.

The 3,000-passenger vessel which weighs 137,276 tons stopped at the metropolis, the second city to Seoul, during her first season on an Asian itinerary.

Royal Caribbean International representative in Korea Lee Jae-Myung said: “We are proud to have added yet another popular Korean destination to Voyager of the Seas’ North Asian itineraries.”

Voyager will also be calling at Fukuoka and Okinawa on the seven-night cruise from Shanghai, while other itineraries in the ship’s Asian season include three and five-night cruises from Singapore, along with five and seven-night cruises from Shanghai and Tianjin. She has six more calls to Busan this year.

Busan is renowned for its mountains, islets, beaches, seafood and the Jagalchi fish market, while the 387-feet Busan tower offers views of the city and surrounding areas. Jae-Myung said: “Busan, a cosmopolitan city with a breathtaking mix of hills, mountains and the ocean, has always been one of Royal Caribbean’s top destinations in the region. With our multiple calls lined up this season, thousands of international guests will be able to enjoy the city’s scenic beauty, tourist attractions and famous seafood delights.”

Royal Caribbean’s Legend of the Seas is also in North Asia and the presence of both ships has more than doubled the line’s passenger numbers in the region.
