“Growing up I was always fascinated by the history of the sea and ships. This was for me, one of the main reasons for bringing the Royal Albatross to Singapore.” “There is no other ship like her in the region so it’s a rare opportunity to educate the younger generations about Singapore’s maritime roots and let them literally ‘learn the ropes’. It’s a fantastic unique experience for them” said Peter Pela, CEO and Owner of the Royal Albatross.

This event will take place on selected dates during the March holidays from 14 to 22 March 2020 and targeted for families with kids from ages 4+. Tickets may be purchased online from Klook or at the Royal Albatross Booth at RWS Sentosa adjacent to the sea aquarium.
