Legend of the Seas on 7-Night Borneo Explorer Cruise

Royal Caribbean International’s newly revitalised cruise ship Legend of the Seas, called at Puerto Princesa of Philippines for the first time on Tuesday with an official ceremony welcoming her arrival. Legend of the Seas is currently on the 7-Night Borneo Explorer Cruise which started in Singapore and features calls also at Kota Kinabalu and Bandar Seri Begawan.

Ms Marilen Sandejas-Yaptangco, Royal Caribbean International’s Representative in the Philippines said, “We are proud to add yet another destination in the Philippines, and moreover, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, to Legend of the Seas’ Asian season for her guests to explore and experience. Our successful call at Puerto Princesa today is the result of the strong effort and support of the Philippines Government in terms of infrastructure building which marks a positive step in cruise development for the country.”

Mr Edward Hagedorn, Mayor of Puerto Princesa, added, “The maiden voyage of Legend of the Seas to Puerto Princesa is historical and we are glad that the visitors can experience the scenic beauty and hospitality of our people which will boost tourism in our country.”

The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park with its unspoiled natural beauty is one of top sightseeing sights in Puerto Princesa. It has one of the most impressive caves systems in the world and contains an 8.2 km long underground river that flows directly into the South China Sea.

No trip to Puerto Princesa would be complete either without a visit to the indigenous Batak tribe or island hopping at the famous Honda Bay.

These iconic tourist spots are included in Royal Caribbean’s shore excursions. The Vision-class Legend of the Seas is the most recent ship in the fleet to receive a bow-to-stern revitalization which includes greater culinary options, new entertainment and activities onboard, as well as a refresh of all furniture and staterooms.

On the culinary front, guests can now enjoy popular complimentary and specialty dining options namely Chops Grille, Izumi Asian Cuisine, the exclusive Chef’s Table and Park Café. The reinvented Centrum also features a new high-flying entertainment experience where aerialists glide through the five-storey atrium, and a large LED screen at the poolside is available.
