Royal Caribbean have made changes that will be in place on sailings between May 17 – June 13:
To be clear, these changes are not a result of any cases on the ship. Our friends at Singapore Cruise Society shared an email Royal Caribbean sent to guests booked on Quantum of the Seas advising them of onboard changes as a result of the increased cases.
Singapore raised its alert status to “Phase 2 – Heighten Alert”, following “several clusters of infections” over the past two weeks. A total of 46 total cases have been reported, primarily in health care areas and an airport terminal.
Singapore has taken an aggressive stance at trying to detect and isolate new cases. Singapore’s Ministry of Healthy outlined some of the things it is doing to curb the spread of these new cases, “To reduce the risk of any spread from undetected cases in the community, we have cast a wide net and taken swift action to detect, isolate, and ringfence any possible emerging transmissions to the community. “ The changes are being made as a result of working with the Singaporean government.
“The health and safety of our guests and crew are of utmost importance to us, and while we continue to monitor the situation closely, Quantum of the Seas continues sailing with a comprehensive, layered set of measures developed to protect and keep everyone onboard healthy. Our robust programme includes pre-departure screenings using the gold standard measure of PCR tests, contactless embarkation and debarkation processes, and enhanced ventilation and sanitation on the ship.” Refunds are being made available to any guest that wishes to not sail due to these the changes.
