RCI-Royal Caribbean International has changed its health and safety protocols on Quantum Of The Seas ship's cruises to nowhere from Singapore.

The new measures reduce the boat's max passenger capacity to just 25%. All onboard restaurants are closed for guests. Room service with the MDR (main dining room) menu is provided.

In an email sent to passengers sailing between May 17-June 13, 2021, RCI said it had tightened its measures as the Singapore Government had announced the "Phase 2-Heightened Alert" restrictions because of a recent rise in local COVID infections ashore.

Enhanced measures for passengers sailing onboard Quantum of the Seas include:

Reducing passenger capacity to 1/4, group sizes to 2 people, allowing at least 16 m2 of distancing per passenger in public venues.

Restaurants are closed, passengers are able to enjoy room service with MDR selections. Takeaway is also offered from a number of restaurants.

Capacity for live entertainment shows is reduced to a maximum of 50 passengers and live singing is not available.

Permitted onboard activities, such as those in Activity Zone, Pool Zone, and SeaPlex continue to operate at reduced capacity with social distancing.

Masks are required in the indoor swimming pool.
