Every now and then, it's good to escape from work and the mundanities of everyday life with your loved ones in tow

If you've found yourself working tirelessly round the clock lately, let this be a sign for you to hit pause, and get in some much needed R&R. 

Your body and mind will thank you. Not to mention, it'll be a nice way to reconnect with your family and friends through fun activities too.

Want an idea for the ultimate getaway? You can hop on board Royal Caribbean International's Spectrum of the Seas for a cruise vacay that you'll remember forever!

Having sailed its maiden voyage in April 2019, Spectrum is the largest, newest, and most innovative cruise ship in Asia.

The ship sets sail from Singapore, where you can embark on spectacular three or four-night excursions called Ocean Getaways, starting from 11 April. There are also three to 9-night sailings with Malaysia and Thailand ports of call that's scheduled for October.

If you're looking for comfy accommodation where you can conveniently retire after having fun all day, you're in luck 'cause cruises are now open for booking.  

Watch this video for a glimpse of what you can expect:

With an extensive itinerary that includes world-class dining and entertainment, as well as private enclaves and state-of-the-art amenities, Spectrum promises a good time for the whole family

Imagine feeling the sea breeze in your face as you lounge by the pool with a delicious cocktail in hand. Or, you can dial up the thrill factor with bumper car rides, an out-of-this-world bungee trampoline attraction, and more, all on board this 1,139-foot long cruise ship.

When hunger sets in, you can hop on over to Jamie's Italian for some Tuscan-inspired cuisine crafted by one of Britain's most famous chefs, Jamie Oliver. Or, savour an array of Asian-inspired cuisines like teppanyaki and hotpot, as well as mouthwatering and delightfully-numbing delicacies at Royal Caribbean's first and only Sichuan restaurant, Sichuan Red.

In short, an exciting experience unlike any other awaits you and your travel companions on board Spectrum.
