Beginning on 6 November onwards, Singaporeans will be able to enjoy a brand-new vacation option that will take the regular ‘stay-cation’ concept and turn it into a ‘Super Seacation’ experience as they sail away into the big, blue sea.
Available on World Dream’s two and three-night high seas itineraries, the ‘Super Seacations’ will combine the multitude of leisure and recreation facilities on board the ship with engaging experiences that will keep guests of all ages entertained throughout their journey. All activities on board will be organized in accordance with permitted group sizes – specific to each activity – in line with the prevailing national policy, and measures will be in place to discourage close contact between groups.
As the newest cruise ship to call Singapore home, World Dream’s debut in the Lion City will provide Singapore residents with the ultimate holiday getaway at sea with its boatload of built-in attractions. Dive into the Esc EXPERIENCE LAB on World Dream and experience heart-thumping, cutting-edge VR that transports players into worlds and realities they never even knew existed. Feel the stomach dropping excitement on the Finger Coaster full motion VR rollercoaster, speed through fantastical underwater worlds with the Icaros simulator and even travel into space with the Star Wars™ Battle Pods.
Awarded with the ‘The Best Cruise Line – Entertainment’ prize at the Travel Weekly Asia Reader’s Choice Awards 2019, Dream Cruises brings to life the most captivating live production shows exclusively created to complement a grand vacation on the high seas. Enjoy a world-class production in the spacious comfort of the Zodiac Theatre with reduced capacity and ample distancing between guests – and be transported to a land of music, colour and imagination or catch a movie at Cinema at Sea for a blockbuster of a good time.
Outdoor activities will whet the whistle for the adventurous voyager. Speed down slippery slides that tower high above the ocean – there’s no thrill like it! Ranging across six waterslides from easy-going chutes for families to heart-racing steep inclines for daredevils, these watery wonders will keep everyone grinning for hours.
Thrill-seekers will also find adrenaline pumping fun on the outdoor Ropes Course featuring a pulse-racing zip-line suspended a full 18 decks above the ocean or climb to new heights, literally, by tackling the onboard Rock Climbing Wall. For the less adventurous, how about a round of Mini-Golf?
For rest, relaxation and pampering, indulge in a treatment at the Crystal Life Spa or treat yourself to some retail therapy in The Dream Boutiques.
Every ‘Super Seacation’ sailing of World Dream will end with Asia’s one and only laser show at sea – a spectacular and perfectly synchronized performance featuring the strongest and most potent multi-coloured lasers to ever be installed on a cruise ship, with over 4 million shades to light up the most colourful voyage at sea.
With the increasing popularity of health and wellness options, Dream Cruises’ ‘Vitamin Sea & Dream’ is the perfect prescription for a relaxing, healthy and fun-filled vacation, featuring a combination of fitness, wellness, nutrition and fresh sea breezes.
Designed to holistically strengthen and boost the immune system with a multifaceted approach, Vitamin Sea & Dream enables guests to make the most out of their vacation away at sea, to come back renewed and fully recharged with positive energy.
Discover the power of fitness activities to boost immunity and to be rejuvenated from head to toe, complemented by the relaxing panoramic view of the ocean. From immunity boosting yoga by Singapore-based celebrity host and yoga instructor Denise Keller, morning stretching on the sundeck, and High Intensity Interval Training by celebrity fitness gurus Jia En Tiong, Lucas Lim and Natalie Yeo, to Aqua Tabata and Aqua Kickboxing with Vikki Jonied, Certified Aquatic Fitness Professional, there is no better time to strengthen and rejuvenate the body than on a cruise holiday. To ensure the safest environment, smaller classes will provide participants with sufficient distancing in accordance to government guidelines.
Guests can also unlock the secret to boost immunity with the correct combination of foods through healthy recipes curated by the Dream Culinary Team, while health professionals from medical service provider Raffle Medical Group will share insights on current health trends and professional advice on nutrition and supplementation.
With Christmas is right around the corner, guests can enjoy some long-awaited and well-deserved bonding time with friends and family on World Dream with Magical Christmas celebrations, where Santa’s Little Elves will be joined by the Dream mascots – the Astronaut and the Mermaid – to spread Christmas joy, happiness and love.
Santa’s Little Elves will make guest appearances at Little Dreamers Academy at Sea, Dream Cruises’ signature program curated especially for kids aged 2-12, where children will learn to become an Honorary Elf, complete with an “Elf Approved” badge. The program also includes complimentary STEAM education classes, music and story time, as well as chargeable classes such as the elf magic workshop.
The festive spirit will culminate with Verry Christmas, a musical production by Dream Cruises that will take guests on a voyage with Christmas angels and magical creatures. Guests can also say hello to the Magical Elves and Santarinas from the show at various venues throughout the cruise.
Prior to her arrival in Singapore, World Dream has been on hiatus in Rotterdam, the Netherlands after being taken out of service in early February. With the safety and well-being of guests and crew being the highest priority, Dream Cruises has completely re-examined and enhanced all of its health, hygiene and operating protocols to ensure the safest environment for everyone across its fleet and in accordance with the local authorities’ strict guidelines including stringent health screening processes prior to embarkation, disembarkation and safe distancing measures on board; thorough sanitization and disinfection and enhanced hygiene practices for guest cabins, crew member quarters, public areas and recreational facilities; safe food and beverage handling procedures; and, 100 per cent fresh air ventilation in guest and crew cabins, as well as public spaces.
Crew members will have completed their 14-day quarantine on the cruise ship prior to arrival in Singapore and will undergo a further series of mandatory COVID-19 testing as stipulated by the local authorities. The crew will be required to test negative before signing-up for active duty.
World Dream will also undergo thorough cleaning and sanitisation prior to her inaugural ‘Super Seacation’ sailings on November 6, to ensure the health and safety of all passengers on board.
As a further testament to the efficacy of the health and safety guidelines on World Dream, the ship has successfully obtained the CruiseSafe Certification by the Singapore Tourism Board and DNV GL and Certification in Infection Prevention – Maritime (CIP-M) from DNV GL following assessment of the Company’s infection prevention and control system.
