The flights to nowhere concept have created waves all across the globe, and now the cruises are too jumping into the bandwagon. Singapore announced that there are going to start the cruises to nowhere initiatives. The national tourism board of Singapore has collaborated with cruise lines for doing the pilot run.
For this initiative, the Singapore tourism board has collaborated with Genting cruise lines world dream and Royal Caribbean Internationals quantum of the seas for this plan.
STB has proceeded on to issue a press release, wherein they stated that that from the 6th of November, the Genting Cruise Lines’ World Dream is going to start its cruise to nowhere services; and in December Royal Caribbean Internationals quantum is going to start their services.
They further added that two cruises whose home port is Singapore is going to be a part of the scheme and will make the round trips.
This course experience is going to be different from the experience that the port to port cruise offers. Because of the pandemic and the hygiene protocols that cruise has to follow, they will depart and return to the same spot and will not attend, and port calls in between.
Another thing that needs to be kept in mind is that these ships will only operate with 50 percent of the capacity so that they can follow the social distancing protocols and the cruise will only be available to the residents of Singapore.
Though the prices of the tickets and other details haven’t been announced it is gathered that a lot of people have welcomed the initiative of the cruise and flights to nowhere and the cruise tickets are going to sell out very quickly.
Michael Goh, the president of the Dream courses, stated that their company is excited for being the first cruise to start their operations and are going to boost the local tourism industry as it is much needed. He further said that an initiative like this would provide vacation options to the land-based resorts.
