Mariner of the Seas is a collection of experiences designed to give every guest the vacation they’re looking for. That’s Mariner of the Seas® – a ship built for adventure, relaxation, and everything in between. There’s now even more to enjoy onboard including new shopping experiences and a revitalized Casino Royale®!
Asia’s largest music festival at sea, “IT’S THE SHIP” is back for the third year running, with new dates, a new destination and a promise of an even bigger line up aboard the luxurious Royal Caribbean International cruise liner, the “Mariner of the Seas”.
SINGAPORE: The Livescape Group today announced that the world’s 2nd largest EDM cruise festival, and Asia’s largest, IT’S THE SHIP (ITS 2016), will be making a return for its third instalment this year. The four-day and three- night floating vacation cum music festival is set to depart from the Marina Bay Cruise Centre in Singapore on November 4, crossing international waters on the straits of Malacca to the Pearl of the Orient, Penang, before returning to Singapore shores on Nov 7.
As a UNESCO world cultural heritage site, the island is located on the west coast of Malaysia and is much regarded to be the food paradise of Malaysia and well known for its vibrant arts scene and heritage sites. The organisers are also working to engage with the state’s tourism department to provide guests of ITS 2016 with some exciting surprises to take place in Penang. It is the first time that the festival will set sail for Penang.
