The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) is set to connect virtually with its in-market cruise stakeholders from India. Based on the theme, Charting our Pathway to Cruise Recovery, CruiseWorld India 2021 aims to re-engage with key cruise line and cruise agent stakeholders, after almost a year.

A key event highlight is the panel discussion, Power up for a safe return to cruising in Singapore, with well-known industry veterans such as Naresh Rawal, Vice-President, Sales and Marketing, Genting Cruise Lines, Varun Chadha, Chief Executive Officer, TIRUN Travel Marketing, Sanjay Kothari, Founder and Managing Director, Just Holidays and Pradeep Saboo, Managing Director, Guideline Travels. It will be moderated by G.B Srithar, Regional Director, India, Middle East and South Asia, Singapore Tourism Board.

“Pre Covid-19, India was Singapore’s top source market for cruise tourism. While commercial travel between the two countries remain paused, it is important for us to reconnect with our cruise partners and renew our close ties through CruiseWorld India 2021. This platform will bring together industry leaders to offer valuable insights on how to gear up for when cruising returns, as well help STB to gather feedback on how we can better support our partners,” said Srithar.

Two of STB’s key cruise line partners, Genting Cruise Lines (“Genting”) and Royal Caribbean International, will share updates and learnings on their resumption of operations in Singapore.
Chadha from TIRUN said, “We are delighted to participate in CruiseWorld India 2021 as it is a key platform to engage with Indian cruise stakeholders and share with the cruise community about Singapore. We remain confident that Singapore is a preferred cruising hub for Indian travelers, given its strong reputation for hygiene and safety, which should give visitors a peace of mind.”

Rawal from Genting said, “We have observed that Indian travellers are still keen to cruise and demand is very much in place. We have resumed our operations on a pilot basis in Singapore on the World Dream, which has been well-received by domestic visitors. Our experience in Singapore is a testament that cruising can continue to be safe and enjoyable, even in a pandemic.”
