Ship: Royal Caribbean, Spectrum of the Seas
Sailing Dates: 3 June 2019 x 3 nights
Destination: Shanghai
Itinerary: Shanghai, Jeju Island, Shanghai


  • Sichuan Red Specialty Restaurant. One of my favourite onboard specialty dining venues across our whole fleet. Authentic Sichuan dishes and a must visit particularly if you enjoy spice or Chili King Crab!
  • Shanghai. Ideally docked in the homeport of this ship, in the stunningly modern metropolitan city. We enjoyed some pre-cruise rooftop entertainment on the famous Bund overlooking the glittering skyline headed up by elegant but futuristic Oriental Pearl Tower. If you can, arrive in town earlier and spend the day devouring dumplings along Nanjing Road.
  • Onboard activities (all complimentary). I conquered the rock wall and rang that bell loud and proud, then channeled my inner Rambo and got competitive in the Laser Tag course before trying my best to master balance and poise on the unforgiving Flowrider surf simulator.
  • Music Hall. Always ensures the party continues night after night, great tunes with a great dancefloor and bar. When it does eventually shut in the early hours, you can dance your way to Sorrento’s for that freshly made pizza hit.
  • The North Star – another complimentary activity. Featuring brilliant 360º views from 90 metres above sea level. Always nice to get a birds eye view of the ship to truly appreciate its design and aesthetics.

Top Tips

1. Embrace the cultural diversity. Be both curious and considerate to engage, learn and share with fellow cruise guests while onboard to get the most out of your experience.

2. Extend your stay. I highly recommend to visit the Zhouzuhang Water Town and take a Gondola tour through this unique and stunning township. Located 1 hour drive from Shanghai.

3. Book early for Shows & Events at Two70. Seating is limited and the shows are so popular that they do sell out. Book early on your Cruise Planner.

4. Visit our NEXT CRUISE Booking Desk. Best way to get exclusive offers and additional benefits on your next cruise. Our expert onboard booking team can help you plan your next holiday.

5. Try out the Sky Pad – One of the only two Quantum Class ships that feature this activity. Hop into the Sky Pad for an out-of-this-world bungee trampoline experience. Strap in, put on your virtual reality headset and get transported to another time, place or planet.

6. VISA Requirements to China. Kindly check the most up to date local government regulations for entry into China.

7. Spoil yourself at the Suite Club. A lavish oasis encompassing private dining rooms, lounges and an upmarket Solarium. Our Gold Suite guests also have access to The Balcony, a private outdoor space offering the best views of the sunset, and The Boutique, which can be reserved for private shopping, tea ceremonies and more. You can unlock the whole experience when you stay in one of the most incredible accommodations at sea!

8. The Ultimate Family Suite for the ultimate family experience. Discover two storeys of expansive accommodation and innovative thrills in the largest Ultimate Family Suite yet. Your kids can plunge into the day’s adventures on their very own in-suite slide. Or scale a rock climbing wall above the waves on your balcony while you soak up endless sea views from a luxurious spa-like Master Bathroom. And making family memories is easy in a private cinema that doubles as the perfect karaoke spot, fun for the whole family!
