Dream Cruises Continues to Make Waves with “World Dream” as the First Cruise Ship to receive the SG SafeEvent Certification
Dream Cruises is excited to announce that “World Dream” is the First Cruise Ship to receive the SG SafeEvent Certification launched by Singapore Association of Convention and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers (SACEOS), to ensure hygiene benchmarks and safe-distancing best practices are upheld at business events.
A pioneer in developing a new norm of COVID-19 cruising, Dream Cruises’ MICE At Sea cruises will continue to deliver innovative MICE event solutions that adhere to STB’s CruiseSafe guidelines and SG SafeEvent Certification, with stringent safe distancing measures, capacity controls, and event cohort groups’ safety assurance.
“Singapore has long been renowned as a safe and trusted Global Asia hub for business events. However, during these exceptional times, we have re-imagined MICE At Sea cruises in anticipation of regional cruise resumption to welcome international fly-cruise MICE event delegates to Singapore on board World Dream once again,” said Michael Goh, President of Dream Cruises. “Building on the success of the bespoke SME Learning Cruise organised by Shin Min Daily News, Bosses Network and Dream Cruises on 1 – 3 October 2021, the largest event at sea since World Dream’s cruise resumption, Dream Cruises took the bold step to set new industry benchmarks and best practices for resuming business events at sea for cruise tourism recovery. This milestone event was a good example of how effective our guidelines are for safeguarding our passengers.”
“As we continue to see the reopening of MICE events in Singapore, delivering a sense of confidence in the safety and wellbeing of all event attendees will be key for enterprises. And that is what the SG SafeEvent Certification aims to do since its launch in June last year – to provide Event Organisers, Suppliers and Venues such as Dream Cruises with a mark of assurance in adhering to the highest standards of hygiene and safe management practices. We hope more enterprises will come onboard the SG SafeEvent Certification to gain a competitive edge as we build towards a safe and progressive reopening of MICE events”, said Mr Dylan Sharma, Vice President, Advocacy & Communications, SACEOS.
To create MICE At Sea cruises, Dream Cruises has specifically designed every journey with safety as the key priority. Stringent guidelines include:
· Full vaccination for all passengers and ship crew
· Same day COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Testing for guests
· Staggered cruise embarkation / disembarkation times
· Deployment of safe distancing and crowd control Cruise Ambassadors and dedicated Hotel Event team during events
· Contactless contact tracing technology such as TraceTogether Token / App, Tracey Tokens, Cabin Key Cards and CCTV surveillance records
· 100% fresh air ventilation in each cabin and public areas with no re-circulation of air
· A well-equipped 24-hour Medical Centre with COVID-19 testing capability, two doctors including an Infection Control Officer, Isolation wards & Quarantine cabins
