Singapore starts cruise to nowhere


Following the airlines which are offering tickets to nowhere, which is a term used when the flight reaches and returns to the destination without landing, the concept is now being followed by Singapore where it has now begun the cruise to nowhere.

The concept of this is that the cruise will begin from one port and reaches the same port without docking at a different port and reportedly, Singapore has partnered with Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas and Genting Cruise Lines’ World Dream for this initiative.

An announcement was made by Singapore Tourism Board that the Genting Cruise will set to sail for the cruise to Nowhere from November 6 followed by Royal Caribbean cruise which is set to sail early December. The tourism board further stated that these cruise ships are part of a pilot project and they have their base in Singapore.

As of now, the cruise can be accessible to Singapore Residents and they follow safety and hygiene protocol where only 50% of passengers will be allowed access. To stop prevent of transmission of Coronavirus, the cruise ships will depart and return to the same port but gives the passengers the cruise travel feel.

Regarding this, the Dream cruises president said that they are much delighted to be the first cruise to restart the operation from Singapore which will provide the much-needed tourism boost for the country. He also added that this will provide another vacation spot which was limited to land-based resorts until now.
