Dream Cruises officially resumed its cruise service in Singapore today with World Dream’s debut in the city and her first “Super Seacation” itinerary created especially for the Singaporean market.
From today onwards, the cruises will provide Singaporean residents with enjoyable, refreshing short getaways on carefree ocean voyages that will truly evoke the sense of a “vacation away” to enhance their “staycation” experience. Operating at a reduced capacity of 50%, around 1,400 enthusiastic passengers took part in the historic inaugural voyage of World Dream.
World Dream’s two and three-night “Super Seacation” itineraries 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.
World class shows will wow audiences in the Zodiac Theatre while virtual reality games provide thrills in the Esc EXPERIENCE LAB and six waterslides and a zip-line suspended 18-decks above the ocean. Every ‘Super Seacation’ sailing of World Dream will end with Asia’s one and only laser show at sea.
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.
In preparation for welcoming its first passengers on board, over the past months, Genting Cruise Lines has completely re-examined and enhanced all of its health, hygiene and operating protocols to ensure the safest environment for everyone on board including thorough sanitization and disinfection and enhanced hygiene practices for guest cabins and crew member quarters, public areas and recreational facilities; social distancing in dining, entertainment and public areas; safe food and beverage handling procedures; and, 100% fresh air ventilation in staterooms and public areas.
A well-equipped, state of the art medical facility, including a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) machine, will bring cutting edge COVID-19 laboratory testing technology directly onto World Dream and provide even more assurance to guests and crew.
Additionally, all guests will be required to pass a COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test before being allowed to board the ship and all guests age seven and above will be required to carry their MICE Pod token, as mandated by the Ministry of Health, to monitor social distancing while on board
The resumption of cruise operations will also see Genting Cruise Lines reinforcing its commitment to reviving sea-faring opportunities in Singapore and cultivating local cruise talents through new employment prospects and educational partnerships that will provide more jobs for Singaporeans, during this difficult pandemic period.
As part of its operations, Genting Cruise Lines will be searching for talents to fill in excess of 100 jobs covering all aspects of cruise ship operations from Marine Officers to Cruise Operations and Galley Chefs, Media Technicians, various hotel and hospitality staff and special Cruise Ambassadors to ensure the best guest relations.
Two recently recruited Singaporean citizens, Loh Tze Xiang, Zachary, 2nd Officer Junior and Mohd Ansar, 3rd Officer, made their first appearance as official crew members on board World Dream during her initial cruise.
