Over 80,000 people have taken a “cruise to nowhere” out of Singapore since the programme was launched late last year.

The cruises were launched in November by two cruise lines — Genting Cruise Lines and Royal Caribbean International.

The US cruise giant is said to have completed a total of 25 sailings since its introduction with more than 35,000 guests, while more than 47,000 passengers have sailed with its Malaysian rival, according to reports in Singapore’s The Straits Times.
