DREAM Cruises introduces additional safety measures with mandatory vaccination for cruising guests aboard world dream


Dream Cruises is pleased to announce as part of its ongoing commitment and efforts to provide safe cruises for its guests and crew, all World Dream sailings with effect from 21 November 2021 onwards will require its guests to be fully vaccinated for COVID- 19, excluding children aged 12 years and below. Vaccinated guests must receive the full regimen of COVID-19 vaccines* at least 14 days before the cruising date to be eligible to cruise and also tested negative for the mandatory pre-boarding Antigen Rapid Test (ART) at the cruise terminal. For further peace of mind, World Dream crew members have also been fully vaccinated in accordance with prevailing national guidelines.

Dream Cruises’ latest safety initiative and mandate for cruising guests to be fully vaccinated provides an additional layer of preventive measures, which further complements the existing mandatory pre-boarding Antigen Rapid Test (ART) for all guests. Dream Cruises’ enhanced safety and preventive measures are essential to adapting to the transitional and evolving situation in Singapore.

“With Singapore having one of the highest vaccination rates in the world, we have observed that since October 2021, close to 99% of our cruising guests aboard World Dream were already fully vaccinated. As such, the implementation of mandatory vaccination for cruising guests aboard World Dream is timely and in line with our continuous effort to provide a safer and worry-free experience on board our ship,” said Mr. Michael Goh, President of Dream Cruises. “With World Dream being the first in Singapore to be certified under the CruiseSafe program by the Singapore Tourism Board and also the CIP-M program by leading international healthcare expert DNV, Dream Cruises will continue to monitor closely the local situation and explore the additional potential safety measures to be applied in the near future,” added Mr. Michael Goh

Dream Cruises is updating its guests of these latest requirements and affected guests may contact their original booking source for available options, including the choice to transfer to another cruise date or opt for a future cruise credit.

Dream Cruises reiterates that it maintains the highest preventive and safety measures on board its fleet and is committed to safeguarding the health of all guests and crew. Dream Cruises will continue to monitor the local situation and work closely with the relevant authorities to support all possible precautionary measures. Should there be any new development, Dream Cruises will update its guests and relevant parties accordingly.
