My first trip to Singapore landed me on this famed, Asian Cruise line that redefines vacation travel at sea. The Genting Dream is an International Mariner of the Singapore Strait, Malaysian turf, and the Laut China Selatan. In few words, boarding Genting Dream, Asia’s largest luxury cruise, is an awakening of a dream.
Dream Cruise features the best of Asian hospitality, comforts, and experiences from across the world. Genting Dream sails on different routes on different days, hence, it’s best to check their schedule before you make an online reservation. Managed to click the below picture, from the waiting room.
Singapore unfurls a new Asian Luxury Cruise on its Blue Waters
To board Genting Dream Cruise, first, arrive at the Marina Bay Cruise Center. In general, keep your cruise ticket, passport, and Singapore visa handy to display at multiple entrances. By all means, I found the onboard check-in procedure well-organised and easy to follow.
Once you enter the main lobby, you will notice airport alike security installed on your right. Proceed straight to the check-in counter to check-in luggage and collect your boarding ticket. Since you are allowed to bring only 2 bags onboard, per person, you will have to check-in everything else. Your bags can carry up to 23 kg worth luggage, enough, for a two to five-day vacation.
Check-in and Immigration made easy at Genting Dream Cruise
Once you cross the security check-in, you will arrive in another large hall. This area features fascinating and illusional ceiling that will keep you busy for some time. When you initially arrive, you will receive a colour coded cruise ID.
The staff calls out different colours from time to time, therefore, keep yourself attentive at all times. Queue up as soon as you hear the colour code on your ID and thereafter, join the immigration line.
It’s all lined up in a stride, one after another, leaving no scope for confusion. The Immigration line is long and the entire process could take somewhere between an hour to three. Afterall, Genting Dream Cruise is a large vessel that carries 3400 passengers and over 2000 staff members at one go.
I think lining up in the queue somehow builds up an additional thrill to be on board an Asian luxury cruise. Post, you clear your immigration and get your passport stamped, the real journey begins.
Say Hello! to Christmas mascots like lady Santas, and elves on your way in. Stay tuned for the final sneak peek inside the cruise, it’s incredible deluxe balcony stateroom, adventures, shows, and Michelin-starred restaurants.
