Mumbai, 15th April 2013: Royal Caribbean International’s recently refurbished Legend of the Seas® today called for the first time in Mumbai after its revitalization at the Ballard Pier -Ballard Estate. Mumbai became the final Asian destination for the innovative 'Ship of Lights' as she concluded her 4 year deployment in this region. Her arrival was marked by an official welcoming ceremony and her departure was an emotional moment for those who have sampled her charms and will now need to travel to Europe for this experience. Legend of the Seas® will be replaced by Asia's largest ship next month thus bringing more first-at-sea innovations to this region.

Speaking on this occasion, Ratna Chadha, Chief Executive, TIRUN Travel Marketing, India’s Representative for Royal Caribbean International, said, “It is a sheer delight to welcome one of Royal Caribbean International’s most well-travelled ships. Legend of the Seas® was revitalized in January this year and the extensive 3 week makeover has resulted in a virtually new ship that features more accommodation and dining options, new and exciting entertainment, upgraded technological conveniences and much more.” She further added, "Legend of the Seas® brought the international style of cruising to Asia and introduced innovative signature amenities and activities like the rock-climbing wall and mini-golf. Her presence allowed travel enthusiasts a chance to experience the Royal Advantage closer to home and enabled many Indian travellers to discover how a cruise ship can be a destination in itself.


The 2074-guest Legend of the Seas®has called at over 40 ports spanning 13 different Asian countries and been served by five Captains over the past four years.  Recently, the ship received a US$50 million bow-to-stern revitalization which introduced greater culinary options, new visually stunning entertainment and activities on-board, as well as a refresh of all furniture and staterooms.
