Royal Caribbean will begin sailing from December with new scenic cruises from Singapore on Quantum of the Seas.
A range of 3- and 4-night cruises have been approved by the Singapore Government and begin sailing on December 1, 2020. These new cruises are only available to residents of Singapore and are now on sale.
“This cruise pilot is a valuable opportunity for cruise operators to reinvent the entire cruise experience in order to regain the confidence of passengers,” said Singapore Tourism Board Chief Executive Officer Keith Tan. “Singapore remains committed to supporting and growing cruise tourism in the region.”
While the cruise experience will be different than it was pre-pandemic, we are committed to providing the signature Royal Caribbean holiday that guests know and love, while keeping the health and safety of everyone on board as our top priority” said Angie Stephen, managing director, Asia Pacific, Royal Caribbean International. “I extend my deepest gratitude to the Singapore Government for their collaboration and support and confidence in Royal Caribbean to deliver a safe cruising experience. We share their strong commitment and focus to reignite the local economy and bring back jobs and services supporting the travel industry.”
The first pilot cruises will sail to and from Singapore with no port calls. The ship will operate at a reduced 50% capacity and strict safety measures will be implemented before, during and after each cruise.
