Here you go, one of the most requested blog post sharing our holiday experiences in Genting Dream – Dream Cruises. AnakJajan are going to show you what is it like to be on a cruise, things to do or itinerary, and of course the food or restaurant inside the cruise.
Getting on cruise holiday has been one of our top bucket list, we bet some of you also have the same dream that explains the number of request for this blog post.
Last year on December 2017, AnakJajan finally got out bucket list checked off at Genting Dream by Dream Cruises, the trip we took was “2-Night Weekend Cruise” from Singapore.
Since the package is for 2 nights only, it’s more of a weekend getaway from the city with itinerary: Singapore -> Cruising Day -> Singapore.
ROOM & CHECK IN
On the boarding day, we arrived early at Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore for check in. Don’t forget to bring your passport and booking details, also make sure to arrive early for check in since the queue could be quite long and time consuming.
NOTE: It’s highly recommended to bring only cabin size luggage so you can bring it with you inside the cruise because for large luggage, you have to check it in and it will be delivered to your room after late night.
Our room was Balcony Stateroom, even though the room isn’t big (20 sqm), but it’s adequately spacious enough for both of us with balcony for us to sit and enjoy the sea breeze. Since the cruise is uber huge, you won’t feel a thing onboard, so don’t need to worry about seasick.
If we’re not mistaken, the price for 2 nights cruise starts from SGD 445 per person, or SGD 890 per room (for 2 Persons in one room) including breakfast, lunch, dinner, room for 2 nights, free show, free activities and free entertainment. Please note that price varies, it depends on the season (low or high season) and room type. You can book directly at dreamcruiseline.com or go to the nearest travel agent.
Remember since you’re going to sail in the middle of the ocean, your phone connection will be “no service” most of the time. As for internet, you can purchase internet package onboard, although the speed wasn’t the best at least it’s sufficient enough for us to check email and social media.
Food is already included 3 times a day at the Inclusive Restaurants, so during breakfast/ lunch/ dinner guests can simply head to one of the restaurants. On our cruise there were 4 Inclusive Restaurants: The Lido (International Buffet), Dream Dining Room Upper (Chinese), Dream Dining Room Lower (Chinese), and Multi-function Room (International Buffet).
If you have extra budget for food, inside the cruise there are many Exclusive Specialty Restaurants worth trying, by exclusive means you have to pay for the food.
Uma Umi Teppanyaki, a Japanese teppanyaki and sushi bar restaurant. On the first night, AnakJajan visited Uma Umi for dinner, for teppanyaki they have a few selection of combo package from Appetizer (Salad), Soup, Main Course (Teppanyaki + Garlic Fried Rice), and Dessert ranging from SGD 58 to SGD 73. The chef was so funny and entertaining!
Bistro by Mark Best, specializes in contemporary Western cuisine, the restaurant by celebrity chef Mark Best is seriously worth checking out. We had lunch set SGD 197 for 2 persons including: Sydney Surf & Turf, Lobster Bisque, Premium Australian Steak, Lobster, Crab Leg, Tiger Prawn, Scallops, Tempura Oyster, Pandan Ice Cream with Mango & Anzac Biscuit. Everything was mindblowingly spot on! Nicely executed with amazing ingredients, best meal we had in the cruise.
For Chinese fine dining, you can check Silk Road restaurant with lush and glamour interior.
ACTIVITIES & ENTERTAINMENT
Anyone who loves outdoor activities will have so much fun with Waterslide Park, Basketball court, Mini Golf, Rock Climbing, Ropes Course, Jogging Track, Pool, Whirpools, Ping Pong, and Chess onboard all for free.
For indoor activities, you can spend time shopping at the boutique, going to casino, book a spa session, play bowling, or go to Zouk bar.
Every night at Zodiac Theatre, there’s show we can watch for free, on the first night the show was “China’s Got Talent – The Dream Experience”. And on the second night the show was “The Voyage of a Lover’s Dream”, it was an entertaining show about a love story between mermaid and astronaut with theatrical dance and melodious music.
Overall, cruise is indeed a luxury integrated resort at sea. The experience was fun and different, AnakJajan gotta say cruise holiday is worth trying at least once in a lifetime.
