Singaporeans will soon be able to take an ocean getaway to Malaysia as Royal Caribbean reopens its international cruises from Jun 30 onwards.

At the start of COVID-19 pandemic, Singapore had suspended all cruise ship port calls, which meant that international cruises effectively came to a halt for the past two years. Passengers were limited to cruises-to-nowhere starting from November 2020.

The Royal Caribbean’s Spectrum of the Seas ship will soon take passengers on a three-day or four-night cruises.According to their website, the three-day trip will stop in Penang, while the four-night trip will stop in both Penang and Port Klang, which is near Kuala Lumpur.

The price for each cruise trip starts from $279 and $378 respectively. Passengers will also need to be fully vaccinated and undergo a supervised antigen rapid test before boarding.

Travellers may also book a shore excursion once they have reached the destination or opt to walk around on their own. The excursion will include stops at St George Church in Penang and the Batu Caves in Kuala Lumpur.

Before disembarking in Malaysia, all passengers must have a six-month passport validity and should update the MySejahtera tracing app.
