World Dream Singapore sailings open to non-residents and international travellers

Various measures on board promote social distancing among guests on World Dream
Dream Cruises opened World Dream sailings to non-residents in Singapore, as well as international travellers in accordance with Singapore authorities' guidelines.

This includes those entering Singapore via the Vaccinated Travel Lanes (VTLs).

International travellers will have to fulfil mandatory border and health control measures to be eligible to cruise and embarking guests will need to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and continue to undergo a compulsory pre-boarding antigen rapid test at the cruise terminal and present a negative test result.

More than 200,000 passengers carried

World Dream has carried over 200,000 passengers since cruising resumed in Singapore on November 6, 2020.

‘With cruise bookings now open to non-residents in Singapore and international travellers, it is indeed fantastic news, as we have been working hard towards this goal with the demonstration of safe cruises over the past year,’ said Michael Goh, president of Dream Cruises.


‘Our progression to the next phase of cruising is timely and we are highly optimistic that demand will continue to rise with the contribution of the fly-cruise segment,’ he added.

Destination cruising next?

‘With the support of the Singapore Tourism Board and local authorities, as well as from our local and international travel partners, we are excited to now welcome international travellers on World Dream under prevailing national guidelines and we look forward to exploring future possibilities, including destination cruises,’ he concluded.
