With the numbers on board cut down to 250 persons maximum and only three cruises per weekend due to the COVID-19 Directive weekend curfew, the owners of the MV DreamChaser have put numerous safety protocols in place.

Speaking to Loop Business as the country continues to exist under the weekend 10 pm to 5 am curfew restrictions, one of the owners of the MV DreamChaser, Captain John Moore said that there is a new normal to be expected now.


Here are 10 things that patrons must expect if they are going to an event on board the party vessel:

  1. No entry without a face mask. Masks are mandatory.
  2. Must provide names, numbers, addresses and show ID.
  3. Sanitise using the sanitisation stations around the boat.
  4. Social distancing around the bar and between crews.
  5. Work is on to possibly have the bar area screened from the chest up.
  6. Bartenders will wear masks and have hand sanitiser.
  7. Line-up dockside for temperature checks. These checks are mandatory.
  8. No coolers yet. Bottles on sale onboard. No refills at the bar only new bottles each time, new cups and new bowls for ice.
  9. Be early to sign-up, get checked and get on board without delaying the cruise's sailing time. No lateness!
  10. Bathroom attendants will monitor the situation to prevent overcrowding and to keep the area well sanitised while at sea.

Until the Prime Minister updates the country on the next step for the country and businesses, these protocols are part of the new norm on the MV DreamChaser. 

The first cruise since the first COVID-19 Directive to cancel all gatherings and events, is set to be held on the MV DreamChaser June 28, 2020.
