World Dream returning to 50% capacity as Singapore heightened alert passes

World Dream has operated more than seven months of COVID-19-incident-free cruises from Singapore
Dream Cruises' World Dream will go back to 50% capacity starting June 14, following a month at 25% due to Singapore's heightened COVID-19 alert.

Heightened Singapore restrictions took effect May 16 and are to expire June 13.

Since retarting passenger operations from Singapore in November, World Dream has chalked up more than seven months of COVID-19-incident-free sailings.

Robust sales

'Despite the heightened health measures of the previous month, World Dream has enjoyed robust sales in June and we are seeing limited availability of cruises in July,' Dream Cruises President Michael Goh said.

Theme cruises

Additionally, World Dream will introduce a Japanese-themed cruise experience from June 20 to Sept. 18, including lavender fields of Hokkaido and torii gates of Kyoto complemented by a variety of Japanese-related activities and cuisine.

Goh said further global thematic cruises will be offered toward year-end including Markets of the World and Nordic Christmas.
