Singapore eyes launch of 'cruises to nowhere' to kickstart leisure travel amid coronavirus pandemic: 보고서

It could be a while before cruises are back to normal, but if you miss the open seas, a “cruise to nowhere” might be just what you’re looking for.

The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) is reportedly working on protocols for “cruises to nowhere” to begin operating in 싱가포르, according to a report earlier this week from The Straits Times.

The newspaper reported that the board hired a risk management company to help develop a plan for cruise companies to follow.

“Cruises to nowhere” are short sailing trips into international waters that typically last one or two nights, but then return to the same port from where the ship left. The website also noted that U.S. law prohibited cruises to nowhere from U.S. ports as of 2016, 에 따르면 CruiseCritic.com.

News of Singapore’s possible “cruises to nowhere” comes soon after Singapore Airlines announced that it would not offer “flights to nowhere” and would instead turn one of its planes into a pop-up restaurant.

Though the airline had previously considered running short plane rides that take off and land at the same airport, it changed its mind after the plan was criticized for the environmental impact it would have.
