They will be serving cruises from Shanghai (Baoshan), Beijing (Tianjin), Hong Kong, and Singapore with many onboard entertainment options such as DreamWorks Experience and signature onboard amenities as they embark on an incomparable vacation to Korea, Japan or Taiwan. Voyager of the Seas and Mariner of the Seas’ summer 2014 Asia season is now open for sale.
