Planners and groups can now begin hosting events back on Singapore's
high seas, following Dream Cruises' announcement that the World Dream
has received the SG SafeEvent Certification by SACEOS (Singapore
Association of Convention and Exhibition Organisers and Suppliers).
Launched since June 2021, the SACEOS certification ensures hygiene

This is on top of adherence to Singapore Tourism Board's prevailing
CruiseSafe guidelines, which enabled World Dream to restart sailings
since November 2020.
