Building on the success and overwhelming response of the “Island Escapade” to Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang), Penang and Phuket, Dream Cruises has announced that Genting Dream will continue her Singapore homeport deployment with a delightful “Summer Island Idyll” itinerary, featuring new ports of call to Pulau Redang in Malaysia, Sihanoukville in Cambodia, Jakarta in Indonesia, as well as Ko Samui and Bangkok (Laem Chabang) in Thailand.
“As part of our commitment to inspire our guests with transformative vacations at sea, we are constantly looking for innovative destinations to create itineraries that will elevate the cruising experience,” said Mr. Thatcher Brown, President of Dream Cruises. “With the success of our current Island Escapade cruises, we are delighted to introduce Genting Dream’s first summer itinerary from Singapore and showcasing her maiden calls to Pulau Redang – Malaysia, Sihanoukville – Cambodia, Jakarta – Indonesia, and Ko Samui and Bangkok, Thailand. Singapore continues to be an important strategic homeport offering great infrastructure, particularly for our fly-cruise guests.”
From 14 April to 12 October, Genting Dream will offer two alternating 5-night Summer Island Idyll itineraries, starting with an exhilarating journey that spans three countries – Pulau Redang in Malaysia, Sihanoukville in Cambodia and Bangkok in Thailand, followed by a mid-summer cruise to Pulau Redang in Malaysia, Ko Samui and Bangkok in Thailand departing on 24 June and 2 September. Guests who wish to have a quick staycation at sea may opt for the popular Singapore Weekend Getaway, which departs every Friday. The popular Treasures of Indonesia 5-night itinerary will return in the months of May to December, taking guests on an exotic journey to Surabaya and North Bali.
On 1 April and 25 November, Genting Dream will have special voyages to the capital city of Indonesia. Guests may treat themselves to spectacular harbour view, extensive sightseeing and shopping in Indonesia’s capital city on this exclusive 5-night cruise to Surabaya and Jakarta, where the cruise ship will berth overnight to allow ample port stay hours.
On 29 July, Genting Dream will go on a special 5-night cruise to Kuala Lumpur, Penang and Phuket, where guests will enjoy the landscape, culture and cuisine of Malaysia and Thailand, without the hassle of commuting and packing as they travel to multiple countries.
An exhilarating voyage to the Gulf of Thailand
Genting Dream offers a hassle-free holiday visiting multiple destinations with the convenience of luxury accommodations on-board the floating resort, without having to pack and unpack! On your adventure, plunge into the crystal clear waters at Pulau Redang to explore a fascinating undersea world, or venture into the rainforests to commune with nature and encounter the indigenous wildlife; cast your eyes on endless white sandy beaches in Sihanoukville and frolic in the balmy waters that surround this Cambodian peninsula; step into an ancient palace in Bangkok and take a trip back in time, or entice your palate with a variety of Thai hawker food.
Starting from 24 June, Genting Dream will also offer a 5-night cruise to Pulau Redang, Ko Samui and Bangkok that Thai enthusiasts will not want to miss. Experience the essence of Thailand on the beautiful island of Ko Samui, where guests can enjoy water sports, authentic Thai cuisine, pristine beaches and festive celebrations with the locals.
Short and sweet sailings along the Straits of Malacca
Take a short cruise trip with friends and family to recharge and rejuvenate! A 3-night cruise to Phuket will lift the stress away as you encounter sunny beaches, street markets and colonial architecture that are distinctive of this charming island. The 3-night cruise to Penang and Langkawi will be a perfectly-balanced vacation of civilization and relaxation, while the 2-night cruise to Kuala Lumpur will cater to those who yearn for a little retail therapy, or a breath-taking view atop the Petronas Towers.
Complementing these exotic locales, a series of enrichment programs will be hosted on board throughout the summer including Songkran parties in April, where guests can enjoy traditional water fights in celebration of the Thai New Year; as well as STR’EAT” at Sea, a foodie extravaganza featuring all the best Asian street cuisine.
