Legend of the Seas makes maiden call at Yeosu
Seoul, May 17, 2012
 

ROYAL Caribbean International’s Legend of the Seas made its inaugural call at Yeosu, South Korea yesterday. The visit coincides with the opening week of World Expo 2012 in the city.

 

Kelvin Tan, Royal Caribbean’s regional director Asia Pacific, said: “Legend of the Seas call at Yeosu is the highlight of this cruise. We have been specially planning for this for over a year – for our ship to arrive at the Expo right in the middle of the festivities.”

 

Currently en route an eight-night sailing from Yokohama to Jeju and Shanghai, Legend of the Seas' ongoing North Asian season also features several six- to 10-night cruises to South Korea, Japan and China, with the trips originating from Hong Kong, Shanghai, Tianjin and Yokohama.

 

Yeosu is the newest South Korean destination for Royal Caribbean International, after Seoul, Busan and Jeju.

 

Located in the heart of the Expo site, Yeosu's brand new cruise facilities are expected to give the destination an edge in courting international cruise operators such as Royal Caribbean (TTG Asia e-Daily, November 17, 2011).
