I did a recruise on 22nov, it is mandatory for all guests (even those who are continuing cruise) to disembark so that they can thoroughly disinfect all staterooms and common areas. That would also mean when you disembark, you will have to do a covid test but you will be redirected to a results waiting area for recruisers. You will then take that result slip for your reboarding. Meaning if you do 2 back to back cruises, you will take 3 covid tests in total.
The swab test really has no effect on you that you can do back to back cruise? just wondering... i havenít went on any trips yet.

no effect. i went with my baby who is less than 1y old, she already did the test 5x so far.

they used to go quite deep in, 2.5cm for adults and 1cm for infants. but somehow from 14nov onwards i was told by the Dr on site that they changed the policy, become 1cm for adults and 0.5cm for infants.. but some swabbers still kiasu probe quite deep, deeper than required.

you will feel only very slight discomfort and might sneeze, but it only last a few seconds and no long lasting effect.

Anyone knows if the Fri cruise has any western menu at the dream dining room? It used to be only Chinese set for upper and lower dining room for Fri departures

Going later is not issue.. By around 5pm u need to arrive and do the swab test.. If you are 1st time going i suggest u either u do the swab test around 2pm or not too late then your designated time. Swab test takes average 45min to complete the entire process

they will open the terminal for check in around 2pm.. There will be a queue at the entrance... After the security check then go and do your cabin card & collect mice pod. If ship is ready then they will commence boarding.. So far feedback here is they will board after 2pm and not let you wait too long.

compare to GD days..the immi zero queue and gangway zero queues if have at most just a few ppl in front nia...

if you are on a sun or wed cruise not much crowd..

Also if you are 1st time please do the dream elite membership and also onboard the rwas membership.

These are the 2 loyalty programmes from Dream Cruises to offer you with rewards, discounts or other special incentives.

The Dream Elite allows you earn points from sailing and spending onboard while the RWAS (Resorts World at Sea) earn from Casino Play.

Both memberships are free while points earned has validity dates.

4 Dec cruise only have about 800-900 people.

Just confirmed with the membership counter that All PLus Point (PP) validity had been extended till June 2021. The system has not been updated to reflect this.

No wonder they keep offering 4/12 and 11/12 free balcony cabin to my friends and I.
