Genting Hong Kong’s Genting Cruise Lines will provide two of its cruise ships to temporarily house foreign workers in Singapore who have recovered from COVID-19.
The cruise line announced Monday that SuperStar Gemini and SuperStar Aquarius have already completed evaluation checks by the Singapore government, including the implementation of increased safety and sanitization measures for the workers.
“We are pleased that our onboard facilities, as well as preventive and safety standards meet Singapore’s strict requirements for this initiative,” said President of Dream Cruises and Head of International Sales for Genting Cruise Lines, Michael Goh.
“From the onset of the pandemic, Genting Cruise Lines had implemented stringent precautionary measures, including the highest standards of preventive hygiene, sanitization and disinfection procedures to safeguard the well-being of all guests and crew. As such, there have been no reported cases of COVID-19 among guests or crew to date while on board or transmitted via any of Genting Cruise Lines’ cruise ships.
“In addition to these, Genting Cruise Lines’ ship design enables 100% external fresh air to be filtered and supplied to the cabins and on board public areas – ensuring a constant and healthy flow of fresh air throughout the vessel with no recirculation of air within the ship.
“We have also taken a pro-active approach to carefully review our prevention and response plan with the COVID-19 pandemic in mind to provide enhanced and comprehensive measures across our fleet for future deployments, which we will adopt as the new safety norm and we hope for the industry too.”
