With Quantum of the Seas sailing from Singapore in December, Royal Caribbean International has seriously updated its health and safety standards.
As part of the brand’s “Royal Promise” campaign, each ship will have additional doctors and nurses on board and ashore as well as improved equipment.
The built-in medical centers include dedicated controlled care centers where potentially infectious guests or herds can be cared for away from other non-coronavirus health methods. A new layout is pictured above.
The ships will also have an infection control officer who will monitor and coordinate the implementation of the company̵
Each doctor on board will have received mandatory emergency breathing instruction prior to travel.
So how will the medical center work if there is a possible COVID-19 case?
“If a guest begins to feel ill, they can report the need for immediate medical attention to the nurse by telephone. Our medical team will evaluate the guest’s comfort and privacy in their cabin and determine if a SARS-CoV-2 test is needed, ”reads the information on the Royal Caribbean International website.
“Our medical facilities on board are ready to offer robust treatment with rapid RT-PCR testing on site, advanced equipment improvements such as hospital-class fans with CPAP and BiPAP functions, a dedicated controlled care center; and more critical care beds on each ship. ”
Thanks to fast technology-based contact tracking, the cruise line will also be able to advise guests if they had extended contact with any known matter.
COVID-19 testing, treatment and travel home are free for each passenger up to an amount of $ 20,000. The passenger, who tests positive for coronavirus on board, as well as their travel companion, receives a 100 percent refund of the price of their cruise.
The above is only guaranteed for customers who book their trip before 30 November. Health and safety protocols are subject to change without notice based on ongoing evaluation, public health standards and regulatory requirements.
