Think they need a cut off line to determine whether anyone has contacted Covid onboard by enforcing the covid test upon disembarking
2 time test i can live with it..

The only thing i am concern is post cruise.

Current MOH policy is once you leave SG and return if you contract covid19 e.g on the 12th day you need to pay yourself and no subsidy and no medisave/shield can be use. Unless they specify clearly on cruising..

WTF few days ICU is 5 digit loh...

This is still a grey area where cruise companies , STB & MOH do not have an answer yet.

how to cruise with confidence ........

Understand your concern, its our concern too..thats the area why these parties must step forward to stand firmly where the line is eg if tested positive again after being tested negative during the disembarking test shd not be treated as contacted covid from overseas or onboard and shd be treated as contacted locally. Just my opinion.

Lets see how things work out in the coming weeks

Public policy must be clear.

With air bubbles also popping up. Public need to know to make informed decisions.

This does not apply just to cruising.. Air Travel or land travel is the same..

yup, the guideline shd be in place. When you are allowed to travel, its totally different from insisting on travelling despite caution advisory

Mine is a PP booking.

But you can try to ask them extend if is comp.. They are still not clear about the post cruise issues... Unless they can confirm and tell you what to expect.

Also rwas will not be updated with the latest info.. Yesterday evening rwas also do not know there is a 2nd test when disembark. Dream Cruise reply to me is there will be a 2nd test.

See how things evolve in the coming days..

Safety measures is correct. I dont mind 2 test if is required.

HK is opening air bubble for general travel. Likewise SG MOH policy will also need to address post travel matters..

Govt is pushing to gradually opening air cruise and land. Without correct information how to make decision.
