Disembarkation

With effect from 20 February 2021, all guests disembarking will NOT be required to undergo a COVID-19 test at the cruise terminal as per the latest directive from the Singapore authorities.

However, all passengers will still be required to take a mandatory COVID-19 test and have a negative test result before boarding. This remains in line with STB's CruiseSafe certification programme, which requires cruise lines to put in place measures to detect potential COVID-19 cases. On-board testing capabilities are also required, and there will be swift isolation of suspected cases and close contacts until their test results are out.
The Singapore Tourism Board announced on 8 October 2020 that safe cruises will start from 6 Nov 2020 onwards and subject to Safe Management Measures with no port of calls. Hence there is no need to do so.

Guests should monitor their health (i.e. for fever ≥ 38°C and respiratory symptoms such as cough or breathlessness) and seek prompt medical attention when necessary.


Due to the ongoing and evolving government requirements, kindly be advised the guest conduct guidelines, travel restrictions, health and safety protocols are subject to change without prior notice, which may result in further changes for current on board offerings, itineraries and destinations. Guests are strongly recommended to check the Important Notice for the latest updates.
