Working with Royal Caribbean Group during COVID-19

COVID-19 has changed the world, and we’re changing with it. Our procedures have transformed due to the global pandemic, making it safer to work aboard our ships.

Curious what it’s like to work onboard right now? Check out the details below.

We’ve developed comprehensive, multilayered health and safety measures in place that are rooted in science, data-driven and developed with expert guidance from the Healthy Sail Panel, Royal Caribbean Group’s Head of Public Health and Chief Medical Officer and regulators like the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In December 2020, we launched initial sailings in Singapore aboard Royal Caribbean International’s Quantum of the Seas. The new protocols start before the sailing with pre-departure health screenings, and meet all regional requirements and guidelines, including the CruiseSafe Certification standards jointly developed by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) and DNV GL[1].

The ship will operate with reduced occupancy, implement mandatory universal testing during embarkation and debarkation, and enforce mask-wearing, physical-distancing and enhanced cleaning practices across the ship, among other required practices. In addition, all guests will need to scan their SafeEntry QR code required by Singapore upon embarkation and debarkation and have the Singapore Trace Together Bluetooth app or Token at all times during the cruise.

18 restaurants, bars and lounges have been thoughtfully transformed for healthier and safer dining aboard Quantum of the Seas. At Windjammer Marketplace, previously a self-service experience, dedicated crew now serve guests and offer a greater variety of grab-and-go items.
With Quantum of the Seas’ healthy return to sailing, Singapore residents can safely enjoy the ship’s bold lineup of thrilling activities like the signature FlowRider surf simulator.
New to the cruise experience is Royal Caribbean’s Tracelet, a custom wearable required for all guests and crew on board Quantum of the Seas. The technology helps monitor physical distancing and the cruise line’s contract tracing procedures.  
Royal Caribbean’s game-changing Quantum of the Seas has returned to sailing in Singapore with 3- and 4-night Ocean Getaways. For a healthier and safer adventure for all, guests and crew must wear masks on board and during signature experiences like skydiving in the RipCord by iFLY simulator and riding the North Star glass observation capsule.
