We are arriving in Singapore at (the too early hour of) approx 6am after traveling for 2 days.
The cruise does not allow boarding until approx 1pm.
I understand that we can store our luggage at the cruise terminal in Singapore if needed.
Here's my questions-
1. Has anyone used/can recommend a taxi/tour company at the airport?
2. Do you recommend leaving your bags in the cab or dropping them at the terminal before exploring Singapore?
3. Any suggestions for a tour that can be tolerated by people suffering possible jet-lag? Suggestions for lunch?

Singapore offers free tours at the airport, unfortunately do know whether they operate so early in the morning. They do have shower facilities there. What I would try to do is to clean up have breakfast at the airport where you can store your luggage and then take advantage of the free tour offered before returning to the airport to retrieve the luggage and head to the cruise terminal. You might want to check the facilities on the web on Changi Airport.
Anyways there wont be too much to see or anything open at 06.00 in town. Hope this helps.
Have a nice trip.
Just checked the website www.changiairport.com and found out the free two hour tours desk open from 07.00 t0 1530. You register as a transit passenger at the Tourist desk before you pass immigration. Suggest you go into that website.
