7 reasons you need to go on a cruise holiday

By February 15, 2019Travel

TL;DR – Take me there, pronto.

If you have been on Instagram lately, you would probably have seen many images of your favourite social media icons on board the Genting Dream.

Not surprisingly. After all, the Genting Dream is one of the biggest cruise ships in Asia, measuring an impressive length of 335.33 metres, width of 39.7 metres, a total size of 150,695 GT, and top speed of over 23 knots.

Statistics aside, here are nine reasons why you absolutely MUST take that cruise holiday.

1) No airport and flight hassle

Have to be at the airport 2 hours prior to a flight? Not to mention having to endure the entire plane ride. For a cruise holiday, your vacation begins the moment you step onboard the Genting Dream. You can start enjoying the facilities right away (for us, we had a pretty scrumptious Teppanyaki dinner at their signature Japanese specialty restaurant, Umi Uma) without any tedious transfer.

2) Gorgeous sunrises and sunsets at sea

You wake up and you see this,

And there’s also nothing quite like seeing Singapore’s impressive skyline against the backdrop of a setting sun.

3) All-inclusive holiday

When you book direct online, your cruise fare will already include port charges, taxes, and fees, except gratuities (payable onboard).

Your booking will hence comes inclusive of:

– Your choice deluxe accommodation
– Sumptuous meals at inclusive restaurants
– World-class entertainment
– Access to beautifully designed leisure facilities

The Dream Dining Room is an inclusive restaurant which offers buffets daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

4) It makes the perfect family vacation

Whether you’re going with your 13-month baby or active 3-year-old or 70-year-old grandparents, there is definitely something for everyone.

From concerts, to live performances, outdoor movie theatre, bowling alley, it’s no wonder why they were awarded The Best Cruise Line – Entertainment at the Travel Weekly Asia Reader’s Choice Awards 2017.

5) Adrenaline junkies will love it

For the adventurous, an endless assortment of fun activities await you. Think giant waterslides, rope course, rock climbing wall and many more.

The Genting Dream also features the world’s longest thrilling hangover zip line!

6) Zouk

This deserves a mention of its own.

Only a handful of nightclubs around the world are iconic – and Zouk is one of them. Ultra-cool and chill during the day, it morphs into glamourous, urbane and high-octane at night. Drop-ins are turned into dedicated night owls, forever hooked on the one-of-a-kind Zouk vibe.

7) Enjoy a Bintan holiday with ease

Depending on your cruise itinerary, you’ll get to dock at different ports and we recommend the 2-NIGHT BINTAN ISLAND WEEKEND GETAWAY.

Bintan Island is the perfect getaway for fun-seekers! Start off at Treasure Bay Bintan, an adventure playground with its manmade lagoon equal to 50 Olympic-size swimming pools for snorkeling, not to mention giant water slides, paddle boats and off-road ATVs.

There are also massage therapists being ready to help you relax and recharge for the next activity.

Wildlife enthusiasts will visit the safari park of endangered species where they will see orangutans and komodo dragons; golfers will play to their heart’s content on Bintan Island’s world-class links; and shoppers will indulge in a beachfront shopping spree surrounded by tropical rainforest.
