It looks like cruising is still in vogue, because a month ahead of its launch, Royal Caribbean’s new and most expensive suite out of Singapore is already in incredible demand.

The single 2,809-square-foot Ultimate Family Suite on Spectrum of the Seas boasts two levels and three bedrooms and bathrooms, a slide, jacuzzi, and a recreation room with surround sound equipment for karaoke, movies and video games.

The master bedroom extends over the side of the liner for stunning ocean views available to no one else. The beds carry Duxiana mattresses and pillows and Frette linens. 

The Peak understands the suite goes at S$22,000 – 30,000 for a party of four on a 3-4 night getaway – and is largely occupied till June.

Unlike sister vessel Quantum of the Seas – a more familiar sight – Spectrum, which  sets sail from Singapore April 11, offers a secluded facilities area only accessible by guests of its 142 Star, Sky and Sea-class suites. 

This ‘exclusive suite neighbourhood’ encompasses an outdoor balcony space with stunning views and a boutique area for private shopping experiences, tea ceremonies, and wine tastings.

Also nestled within this exclusive enclave are private dining areas and lounges serving hors d’oeuvres and evening cocktails, and specialty restaurants Sichuan Red, Teppanyaki and The Hotpot. All suites are served by private elevators.

Spectrum of the Seas is the cruise line’s largest and most advanced ship for the Asian market. She will sail out of Singapore for the rest of 2022.
