Royal Caribbean International announced at a press conference today in Beijing, China that the recently refurbished Mariner of the Seas will head to Asia in June 2013, offering various itineraries from China, Japan, Singapore and Korea.

Offering a wide variety of itineraries, ranging from three nights to 12 nights, the move is designed to offer additional capacity to a fast growing Chinese cruise vacation population, as well as attract cruise guests from around the world to visit China and sail around Asia.  The ship will adopt the same product customizations made for Voyager of the Seas‘ entry in the market – including Chinese-style menus, as well as enhanced retail and entertainment offerings, and language services.

“The opportunities to attract guests from China to cruise are abundant,” says Goldstein.  “Mariner of the Seas recently received a host of Royal Advantage enhancements and I’m confident cruisers here will be amazed by the Oasis-class innovations available for everyone of all ages on this ship.”

Mariner of the Seas offers guests an outdoor movie screen, ice rink, popular hotdog venue Boardwalk Dog House, enhanced muster drill technology, digital wayfinding system, full coverage shipboard wifi, rock climbing wall, sports area and more.

This will be the second Royal Caribbean ship heading to Asia, joining the 3,114-passenger Voyager of the Seas. Meanwhile, Legend of the Seas, which has operated out of Singapore and Shanghai for the past three years, will return to Europe.
