Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

This month, Dream Cruises is cel­e­brat­ing the launch of its se­cond lux­ury cruise liner, World Dream, de­but­ing in her home­ports in Hong Kong and Guangzhou.

Like her sis­ter ship, Gent­ing Dream, the 18-deck, 151,300-ton craft has been pur­pose-built to de­liver an in­ter­na­tional cruise ex­pe­ri­ence to con­fi­dent, in­de­pen­dent-minded Asian trav­ellers.

En­joy lux­ury ac­com­mo­da­tions at this high-end re­sort at sea, with 70 per cent of cab­ins fea­tur­ing a pri­vate bal­cony. Or for a truly lav­ish ex­pe­ri­ence, the “ship within a ship” con­cept, Dream Palace, features two floors of suites with Euro­pean but­ler ser­vice and spe­cial priv­i­leges such as pri­vate pool, spa and gym, pri­or­ity check-in, be­spoke concierge ser­vice and city shut­tle trans­fers.

Build­ing on the rep­u­ta­tion set by her pre­de­ces­sor, World Dream will of­fer world-class en­ter­tain­ment and recre­ational fa­cil­i­ties to ap­peal to multi­gen­er­a­tional guests. This in­cludes a state-of-the-art vir­tual re­al­ity and game zone, ex­hil­a­rat­ing zi­pline over the ocean, daz­zling laser and fire­works dis­plays, new sig­na­ture shows in­clud­ing a hot Latin ball­room ex­trav­a­ganza, ex­panded duty-free shop­ping, and more.

Af­ter a busy day, re­lax with in­no­va­tive treat­ments at Crys­tal Life Spa be­fore head­ing for din­ner at one of the 35 res­tau­rants and bar con­cepts, which in­clude a new Vin­tage Room chef table in part­ner­ship with Pen­folds Wine. These pre­mium venues show­case flavours from around the world com­bined with au­then­tic Asian hos­pi­tal­ity.

World Dream will de­but with ex­cit­ing five-night voy­ages to the Philip­pines and Viet­nam, al­low­ing guests to es­cape the win­ter blues with sun-drenched, ex­otic ad­ven­tures. Itin­er­ar­ies will en­com­pass var­ied des­ti­na­tions from the buzzing me­trop­o­lis of Manila to the fa­mous white beaches of Bo­ra­cay and from the cul­tural hub of Ho Chi Minh to the trop­i­cal sea­side re­sort of Nha Trang.

Ex­pand­ing Dream Cruises’ foot­print, pi­o­neer­ing sis­ter ship Gent­ing Dream will be re­lo­cat­ing its home port to Sin­ga­pore this month, with new itin­er­ar­ies to Bali, Surabaya, Kuala Lumpur, Pe­nang and Phuket. There is also an ex­cit­ing new line-up of on­board ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing a tra­di­tional Euro­pean Christ­mas mar­ket to com­ple­ment ex­ist­ing favourites like the mag­i­cal Mer­maid Academy.
