The Quantum of the Seas returned to cruising on Dec. 3 with
four-day itineraries from Singapore's Marina Bay terminal to
nowhere, with no port calls, for Singapore residents only.
The ship, which can normally carry 4,100 passengers, is capped
at 50 percent occupancy. Royal Caribbean International, in
cooperation with the Singapore Tourism Board, has put in place
many new measures to limit the risk of COVID-19 onboard its
ships. The Singapore Cruise Society breaks down these measures
in detail and explains how positive cases, such as the one that
was registered on Dec. 9, will be handled.
Before Embarkation Each guest has to take a PCR test within two
to three days before the sailing and test negative. Passengers
who do not complete the online check-in are reportedly
automatically assigned the latest boarding time at 7 p.m. to
ensure that the terminal does not get overcrowded.
