Dream Cruises will be suspending Genting Dream’s operations from Singapore from now until March 27, 2020, in response to growing concerns about the spread of Covid-19.
Dream Cruises president Michael Goh said: “Guests who are booked on any of the cancelled itineraries will be contacted and provided with a variety of compensation options, including to defer their cruise to a future sailing or, if needed, to cancel their cruise for a full refund.”
As the health and safety of guests and crew are of top priority for Dream Cruises, the company has from the onset of the Covid-19 outbreak been working closely with various local and regional authorities in implementing precautionary measures across its fleet.
Health and temperature screening for all embarking guests and crew members before every sailing, as well as stringent sanitisation and enhanced disinfection protocols, especially in high hand-touch areas, have been carried out on its ships.
As well, crew members on duty are required to wear masks and other appropriate gear, including disposable gloves; complimentary facial masks for passengers are available upon request.
To date, there have been no reported cases of Covid-19 among guests or crew while on board, or transmitted via any of Dream Cruises’ ships.
