Be thankful you're not sailing from Singapore


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Singapore Gov have just raised the Covid level - this has affected 2 cruise ships, one being Royal Caribbean Quantum of The Seas.

 

You CANNOT sit down to eat a meal - that's correct (kind of) as ALL restaurants are now closed and you have to order off the restaurant menu to eat in your cabin.

You CANNOT enjoy a drink at the bar - because all bars must close

 

You CAN travel in a family unit of 4 in your cabin - but you CANNOT leave the cabin in groups of more than 2 people.

You CAN watch a show - but each show is limited to only 50 guests.

 

Ship capacity is reduced to 25% of "lucky" passengers lol

IF you wish to cancel you get a 100% refund of the cruise fare - but no mention of hotels and flights etc.

 

At least they have a very simple Cancellation Process - if you have not turned up for the cruise you will be refunded.

I have a Singaporean friend who now lives in Malaysia, where they are on their third full lockdown. The regulations pretty much mean that he cannot leave his apartment except to buy food (which includes takeaways). He's sort of envious about how comparitively easy we've had it in the UK (although he's entirely supportive of the regulations)

No need for that as the cruises are only available to Singapore residents.
