Authorities told the cruise line to cancel two cruises even though they have zero Covid cases.
Dream cruise announced in a statement that they would be cancelling the next two cruises from nowhere at the request of the Hong Kong government.
“Due to the increase of cases of COVID-19 because of the Omicron variant in Hong Kong, the Tourism Commission of Hong Kong has requested that all cruise ships suspend operations as a precautionary measure,” the company said, in a statement. “As a result of this directive from the Hong Kong authorities, Dream Cruises has unfortunately had to cancel Genting Dream’s two-night cruise departing Wednesday, Jan. 5; and two-night cruise departing on Friday, Jan. 7,” the company said, in a prepared statement.
“Dream Cruises would like to reiterate that this cancellation is due to the government’s directive and NOT as a result of any COVID-19 related incidents on board the ship.”
