Royal Caribbean International’s Mariner of the Seas will be transformed into a world of cosplay fantasy once again this weekend, when it plays host to Asia’s biggest cosplay festival at sea for the second time. “COSFEST SEA: Beyond The Great Horizons”, organised by The Singapore Cosplay Club in collaboration with the cruise brand, will be on a 3-night weekend cruise from Singapore to Penang from February 17 to 20. The region’s top cosplayers for the championship plus exciting cosplay entertainment and activities will be in store to spellbind fans and guests.

Stephanie Loh, President of The Singapore Cosplay Club said, ““COSFEST SEA: Beyond The Great Horizons” will be bigger and better with new cosplay activities and entertainment for folks of all ages! Everyone including young kids and their parents is invited to indulge in a moment of fantasy onboard. We want to make cosplay enjoyable for everyone, all the more on a super ship like Mariner of the Seas.”

The biggest highlight of this theme cruise is the Asia Cosplay Meet Championship which will feature 24 contestants from eight countries and territories namely China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, The Philippines, Singapore and Thailand all vying for the top spot. For the first time as well, there will be guest performers from outside of Asia, namely USA. This will be open for public viewing for all the guests onboard to catch the action.
