Oh yes, just saw the news segment of Kieth Tan of STB appearing on CNN International "First Move with Julia Chatterley" 5 mins ago ..... confirming on the cruise to Nowhere ... they are finalizing the safety protocols and will announce once ready .... fingers crossed.

which ship will they deploy to sg? Most likely WD but still hard to say yet.

WD will need 1 month to get itself ready and get certified. Maybe 06Nov start as what i heard.

With limited capacity control i guess there will be high take up rate from members.

I wonder if go pool or inside spa need to wear mask? Really need to see what are the new rules onboard..

Nice as it will not have foreign tourists for now

Most members will not mind if is high seas sailings as they only want it to operate. Better as it will be safer in such a way..

Also there will also be a good number of people who will want a break after 8 months being cook up. So i guess it will have good response for nov and dec cruises.

I have a booking on 8Nov so soon i will know which ship and if there is any further changes to it..

personally I prefer cruise to nowhere at this moment, even more comfortable with the 50% capacity.

Think swimming pools will need reservation and only limited numbers of guest in each slot.Just my opinion.

Anyway, its a definitely a heartening news that cruising will resume soon

Drawback is unlike staycation, if someone onboard kena, likely everyone will be quarantine.

Every at 50% capacity, tats at least 1000 to 2000 ppl (including staffs onbaord) and we may face Diamond princess fate- high infection rate.

there is always the element of risk as cruise ships are confined space. Have to wait for them to devise the safety protocol

Think it will take a while before people get over the stigma. Can't imagine being trapped onboard in a tiny room for weeks if someone kena COVID! Stuff of nightmare no matter how introverted yoi are!

I am really missing those cruising days, can't wait to cruise again. It will be great to cruise on World Dream, looking forward a new experience and perhaps some new slot games pnboard
I trust SG govt, if they say cruises are ready, it means ready. As long as the operators and every paxes following all safety measures, there is no problem to cruise in short future, I wish to be the 1st pax to go onboard World Dream.

Most likely need to do and pay for swab test before boarding.

If this is cruise to no where i dont think there will be a test for the passengers.

The ship will need to certified and crew all ok before they can even start operations.

The entire ship crew do PCR test that i confirm will have.

Now is for the public to trust and have confidence for cruising. If they make things hard to cruise confirm not many will go..

personally I have no issue going back to cruising, only hope that they enforce the use of trace together onboard...If there were to be an infected case, only those come in close contact will be isolated.
