Royal Caribbean Post Round-Up: January 3, 2021

03 Jan 2021
Matt Hochberg

Welcome to the first week of 2021, and here is your look at all of the Royal Caribbean news you might have missed in the past week.

A group of cruisers on Quantum of the Seas are being investigated by Singapore after they posted photos of themselves not wearing masks onboard.

A number of photos show the group posing for photos without wearing a mask and standing less than 1 meter apart, which is a breach of the stringent rules for cruise ships in the region.

Royal Caribbean has received permission from the Singapore government to conduct these sailings, which are pilot cruises that must meet all requirements and guidelines for safe cruising.
