As a direct response to the threat, the police, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority, and the security personnel from the Marina Bay Cruise Centre carried out extensive searches aboard the cruise ship.
On board the yacht, there was not a single object that posed a danger.

Within three hours following the initial claim of a bomb threat, officers from the Central Police Division verified the identification of the suspect through follow-up investigations. They then arrested the individual.

If he is found guilty, the maximum sentence he might receive is seven years in prison, a fine of up to fifty thousand dollars, or both.

The cruise ship’s operations were suspended so that further security checks could be carried out, which caused a delay in the boarding procedure of around 4,000 passengers that lasted for two hours and affected approximately 4,000 total passengers.
