As an avid cruiser, I was eager to be one of the first to experience Royal Caribbean’s new Quantum Ultra Class ship, Spectrum of the Seas, sailing from Singapore. Over the course of my 7-night voyage, this incredible ship surpassed every expectation. Read on for details of my amazing onboard adventures.

Embarkation from the Singapore Cruise Center

Arriving at the sparkling Singapore Cruise Terminal, embarkation was smooth sailing. Within half an hour I was boarding Spectrum of the Seas eager to explore 18 decks of dining, activities and entertainment.

My stateroom was surprisingly spacious for a cruise ship, with floor to ceiling windows and enough room for myself and two travel companions. After a breezy muster drill, we were ready to set sail!

Thrills and Chills at the RipCord by iFly

Of all the remarkable experiences on Spectrum, RipCord by iFly skydiving simulator was the most thrilling. After suiting up in jumpsuit and goggles, I stepped into the vertical wind tunnel and was lifted into flight!

My instructor guided me through floating, gliding and diving maneuvers. The sensation of actually skydiving in a safe, controlled environment was unforgettable.

West End-Style Shows Dazzle

Spectrum’s production of Starwater was Broadway-level entertainment. With intricate choreography, stunning vocals and special effects, I was transfixed. The Royal Caribbean singers and dancers are phenomenally talented.

Diverse Asian and Global Cuisine

From Indian comfort food at Silk to noodle bowls at Hot Pot, Spectrum’s dining highlighted flavors from across Asia. I also enjoyed American classics at the Diner and fresh Mediterranean cuisine at Jamie’s Italian by Jamie Oliver. With 19 dining options in total, the culinary variety was incredible.

Luxe Treatments at the Vitality Spa

After long days sightseeing onshore, I unwound at the spa with relaxing massages and facials using natural ELEMIS products. The spectrum of spa treatments perfectly complemented the intensities of adventure on and off the ship.

With state-of-the-art features, world-class entertainment and impeccable service, Spectrum of the Seas exceeded every expectation. This Royal Caribbean trip was the cruise holiday of a lifetime that I’ll never forget!
