Singapore cruises open to international tourists


World Dream celebrating one year of cruising in Singapore.


Singapore has opened up domestic cruising to the international market as the city ploughs ahead with its goal of ‘living with Covid’.


Until now, only Singaporean residents have been permitted to board the city’s ‘cruises to nowhere’, which are operated by Royal Caribbean and Dream Cruises.


Dream Cruises has confirmed that it has opened its bookings to non-residents, including international travellers entering the city via Vaccinated Travel Lanes.


International guests must fulfil mandatory Covid requirements in order to cruise in Singapore, including full vaccination and undergoing a compulsory pre-boarding antigen (lateral flow) test at the cruise terminal.


Dream Cruises noted that this decision by the Singapore government marks a new milestone that will help fuel the recovery of the cruise industry both in Singapore and regionally.


“This is fantastic news,” said Michael Goh, president of Dream Cruises. “Our progression to the next phase of cruising is timely and we are highly optimistic that demand will continue to rise with the contribution of the Fly-Cruise segment. We’re excited to welcome international travellers on World Dream under prevailing national guidelines and we look forward to exploring future possibilities, including destination cruising.”


World Dream has carried more than 200,000 passengers since cruising resumed in Singapore one year ago.
