Royal Carribean Cruises and Superstar Virgo cruises are two of the largest and most well-known long-haul cruises amongst Singaporeans.

Let us explore these two renowned cruises.
Royal Caribbean Cruise is the one cuise which is immensely popular and widely heard of among locals. The Royal Caribbean Cruise usually takes Singaporeans on a journey down the South China Sea. The ship is of a majestic size and cruises at 22 knots, you can enjoy the soothing sea breeze throughout your cruise. It also comes with a thousand windows allowing its passengers to enjoy the great view of the coastlines and shores. Shopaholics can also look forward the Stunning Centrium, a wide open space featuring the greatest malls one can expect. Another amazing feature of the Royal Caribbean Cruise is the Casino Royale. Far from simply being the name of a famous movie, it is an actual casino for its passengers to try their luck during the long trip.
Those who wish to try something fun and exciting can also use the outdoor facilities onboard. For the adventurous, ascend the Rock Wall.
