The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has said that Singapore currently accounts for a third of the world’s cruises.
Cruises have stopped in most part of the world due to the pandemic. Many early outbreaks were on cruise ships.
Singapore however has managed to operate a number of “Cruise to nowhere” trips starting and ending in the city state.
The non-stop cruises started last November and generally lasted a few days, have strict health protocols and were only open to residents of Singapore. Around 120,000 people have so far enjoyed the cruises.
Singapore’s impact on the world cruise scene is not expected to last once other worldwide cruises restart. Singapore will remain a key stop in cruises in Southeast Asia.
