TAIPEI, 5 January 2021: Dream Cruises has officially ended its seven-month cruising pause in Taiwan by resuming its Explorer Dream’s Super Seacation itinerary out of Keelung, featuring a two-night cruise to Hualian.
As the first cruise ship to resume cruises in Taiwan, Explorer Dream was also the first to resume cruising in Asia. From July 2020 to May 2021, over 90,000 guests have already been on board and experienced Super Seacation cruises with Explorer Dream. However, due to the local Covid-19 outbreak in May 2021, Taiwan suspended domestic cruises for seven months.
Prior to the official restart of Explorer Dream’s sailings in Taiwan, Dream Cruises has enhanced the ship’s preventive measures and health protocols in compliance with all regulations stipulated by the Taiwan authorities.
Newly implemented regulations include requiring all cruising guests (some age restrictions apply) to be fully vaccinated with a government-approved Covid-19 vaccine at least 14 days before their cruise departure date. All guests must also present a negative Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) COVID-19 test result at the cruise terminal of the departure date with test specimen collected within one or two days before the departure day.
