Royal Caribbean International has announced that it has extended the Singapore season for its “smart ship” Quantum of the Seas through February 2022.
Quantum first resumed voyages in December 2020. This marks the third season extension for the vessel, which has proven to be a popular vacation choice for Singaporean residents this year. To date, over 82,000 passengers have sailed safely across 60+ sailings with nearly no occurrences of COVID-19 onboard.
Previously, the ship was scheduled to sail in Alaska for the summer.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to extend Quantum’s ultimate ocean getaway through early next year, providing Singapore residents with more time to relax and unwind. Despite the constantly evolving circumstances, Royal Caribbean remains consistent in delivering a wonderful holiday experience,” said Angie Stephen, managing director, Asia-Pacific, Royal Caribbean International.
“We know that with her remarkable breadth of activities, delicious meals and unparalleled views, Quantum has many fans in Singapore, and there continues to be an overwhelming demand for sailings.”
Royal Caribbean is keeping guests and crew safe through a comprehensive set of health and safety measures, which include pre-departure wellness screenings that include PCR tests, contactless embarkation, and enhanced HVAC filtration systems.
The line also indicated that it would likely implement a vaccine requirement in the coming months, something that has not been required on Quantum of the Seas thus far. “In the next few months, as more Singapore residents become fully vaccinated, we anticipate that we’ll begin sailing with fully vaccinated crew and vaccinated guests age 12 and older alongside children who are not yet eligible for vaccines,” Stephen said.
Quantum‘s Singapore schedule includes three and four-night itineraries, both of which are cruises to nowhere (meaning they don’t stop in any ports).
The vessel features a RipCord by iFly skydiving simulator, FlowRider surfing simulator, 18 different restaurants, and a multi-purpose space that hosts activities such as bumper cars and laser tag.
In line with recently government regulations, Quantum of the Seas currently sails at 50 percent capacity.
