Wi-Fi is a luxury when you are travelling near, remote oceanic islands. As much as, we wanted to stay away from electronics on our sea vacay, work would catch up on and off. Being the bloggers and photographers, we were all set to go LIVE on our Facebook and Instagram feeds. But, for that, we could not survive on the standard free Wi-Fi. Now that we had come this far to indulge in Asian luxuries, we might as well use the opportunity well to record everything around us. Thanks to the Premium onboard internet, not only, could we facetime our family every day, but also, stream excellent quality videos on all our social media platforms. Here’s what you need to do, to get the premium Wi-Fi working on your devices.
Internet of Genting Dream
First, open the Dream Cruise website and go to Wi-Fi packages. Here, select the premium internet option and register yourself by entering the stateroom and date of birth. You can start using the premium internet as soon as, you register. However, for the first time, you need to use it in the lobby and not the stateroom. Second time onwards, you can use it wherever you go! For, the premium internet has a ‘far better’ connectivity than Genting Dream’s standard Wi-Fi. Genting Dream gets its Wi-Fi from the Sky Satellites, for that reason, the internet charges vary by speed and bandwidth.
While satellite Internet is available throughout, it’s only with the premium internet, do you get the best speed and the bandwidth. There are two premium packages, one for SGD 29 and the other for SGD 39. We opted for the 24-hour package priced at SGD 29 to enjoy light media streaming. (allowing us to connect to two devices at a time) Same goes for the standard internet, priced at SGD19 for a day. For a weekend cruise trip, we ended up paying SGD 58 per person per day for the premium internet. Which, if you ask us, was our best buy for all the luxuries, theatrical shows, and celebrity chef restaurants we checked into.
