WHY IT RATES: Explore Singapore in the lap of luxury with Royal Caribbean.—Donald Wood, Breaking News Senior Writer.
Global cruise brand Royal Caribbean International kicks off its 50 Years Bold anniversary celebration this July in Singapore with attractive bold deals, together with the launch of its latest marketing campaign ‘Stop Wondering, Start Wandering.’
Based on Royal Caribbean’s recent survey in Singapore on the attractions of cruising, as many as 60% of the respondents indicated that they are keen to try cruising, with another 25% replying “maybe.” Factors include, cruising being perceived as fun, fuss free and convenient. However, the survey also shows that while consumers wonder about the perks and possibilities of going on a cruise for holiday, it may lead to overthinking and hesitancy, due to misconceptions of high costs and boredom, and hence, fear of not enjoying one’s cruise experience.
