Royal Caribbean produces video where masks are required on Quantum of the Seas

Royal Caribbean has created a new video for guests sailing on the only Royal Caribbean cruise ship sailing right now to better demonstrate where and when face masks are needed.

Wearing a face mask on a cruise ship has been one of the more polarizing topics among guests related to cruises restarting, and has been one of the many required protocols on Quantum of the Seas since she restarted sailings in Singapore in December 2020.

Royal Caribbean has produced a new video for guests on Quantum of the Seas to demonstrate where and when masks are required.

It is important to note the face mask policy is specific to Quantum of the Seas only, and it remains to be seen what the rules regarding face masks will be on other ships around the world.

Our friends at the Singapore Cruise Society shared screenshots of the new video that give examples of what to and not to do onboard.

The health protocols on Quantum of the Seas were developed in tandem with the government of Singapore.

Among the many protocols are reduced capacity onboard, and has implemented mandatory universal testing during embarkation and debarkation, and enforced mask wearing, physical distancing and enhanced cleaning practices across the ship, among other required practices.

The cruise line calls its collection of new health protocols, "The Royal Promise", and it encompasses all the new changes onboard to protect guests from the current health crisis.

Creating a video like this comes after the Singaporean government investigated a group of passengers who took their masks off for a photo.
