The Asian premium passenger shipping company Dream Cruises announced it would be suspending the Genting Dream ship's homeporting in Singapore due to the spread of Coronavirus. The company already canceled itineraries on World Dream and Explorer Dream (scheduled to reposition from Australia to Hong Kong in April 2020). The suspended roundtrips are through March 27.

Passengers who are booked on any of the canceled itineraries will be provided with various compensation options including deferring their voyage to a future sailing or canceling their trip for a full refund.

According to a statement from Dream Cruises, the cruise line found that a number of countries had imposed disembarking restrictions for passengers. The Singaporean government also imposed boarding restrictions on Genting Dream.

The company also said in the statement they had implemented health and temperature screening for embarking guests and crew before every voyage as well as stringent sanitizing and disinfection protocols. All crew members on duty have to wear masks and other appropriate gear, such as disposable gloves.
