Family Cruises: 5 Upcoming Cruise Events for Every Generation

Family Cruises: 5 Upcoming Cruise Events for Every Generation A successful family holiday isn’t easy to get right. Here’s an idea: a sailing expedition. After all, a cruise always makes for a good time, but there’s nothing quite like an ocean adventure with the people you love the most. Tick every box on your family’s wish list on a cruise, from little travel bugs on their first trip at sea to senior citizens relaxing on a much-deserved getaway. Looking for something extra special? We’ve rounded up five upcoming multigenerational cruises on Genting Dream to take your family on this year. Best family cruises for every generation in 2023 1. Tea-licious Mooncake Affair (6 Sep – 4 Oct) Image credit (L–R): Houses Cheung; Resorts World Cruises Planning your Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations? For a lot of people, plans primarily revolve around visiting the family for the holidays. Here’s a suggestion: Perhaps it’s time to sail away on a boat instead. If a special celebration is what you’re after, then the Tea-licious Mooncake Affair with Resorts World Cruises guarantees a holiday to remember. Besides allowing travellers to take the festivities to the high seas, this family cruise sets up the perfect opportunity to learn about and appreciate the ancient art of tea and mooncakes.

Travellers who prefer something more active can head to the Zouk Beach Club on 25 Sep 2023 to dive into ancient Chinese martial arts taichokun and qigong, while captivating cello and dizi (bamboo flute) tunes in the Main Lobby keep the atmosphere light-hearted and festive. Delicious mooncake treats and flavourful English and Chinese teas will be overflowing, too! 2. UWeekly 22nd Anniversary Cruise (24–27 Sep) DJs | Image credit: Resorts World Cruises Music, entertainment, and nonstop fun: Cruises will typically have all three, but if you hop aboard Genting Dream in the last week of September, expect some extra treats. Singapore lifestyle magazine UWeekly will be celebrating its 22nd anniversary at sea with Mandarin music station UFM 100.3, taking cruise passengers of all ages on the most exciting expedition. Besides the usual privileges you’ll enjoy on an all-inclusive tour — and there are a lot — joining the UWeekly anniversary journey involves additional perks. Look forward to three nights of “crui-SING” with the UFM 100.3 DJs Qing Hong, Li Mei, Ke Min, and Andrew, while singing along and dancing to popular Mandarin tunes. Karaoke nights on board will surely be the highlight of the experience, while games and celebratory dinners keep the tour action-packed from start to finish. 3. The Royal Trio of Comedy & Music (11–13 Oct 2023) Image credit: Resorts World Cruises Official Website Legendary international getai performers Liu Ling Ling, Marcus Ching, and Hao Hao take to the stage for a getai cruise to Kuala Lumpur that promises to keep elderly passengers completely entertained. Although getai performances are traditionally staged during the Hungry Ghost Festival — which falls on 30 Aug 2023 — there’s no reason why we can’t enjoy the lively shows all year round. Delight in the world-class getai scene on a one-trip-only spectacle The Ultimate Cruise Show: The Royal Trio of Comedy & Music. Colourful stages, live music, and boisterous comic bits mix for an energetic two-hour event that the whole family can enjoy. If you’re putting together a trip for the parents and grandparents, then you won’t go wrong with this unique getai show on Genting Dream.   4.  Halloween At Sea (8 Oct – 1 Nov) Image credit: inhauscreative via Canva Pro Trick or treat! That’s right: the spookiest season of the year is coming, so you better get your costumes ready. It’s not every season that you get to revel in the holiday with the sea rolling beneath your feet but this year, you’ll get the one-of-a-kind opportunity to celebrate a frightfully fun Halloween with Resorts World Cruises’ Halloween At Sea. Kids and kids-at-heart will undoubtedly make it a creepy extravaganza on board, in all the best ways possible. Let the youngsters get their hands dirty making classic Halloween props, like jack-o’-lanterns and witches’ hats, then revel in fun carnival games and immersive ghost stories. Enjoy tricks and silly frights? Be on guard: Halloween actors hide at unexpected corners of the ship, ready to give passengers a jump scare. Even the Zouk Night Club comes all decked out in quirky Halloween decor for spectacular dance parties till the witching hour and even beyond! So, are you in? Make like Jack Sparrow and set sail for the high seas — maybe you could even don a pirate’s hat and an eyepatch while you’re at it! 5. Christmas Wonderland (17 Nov – 31 Dec) Image credit: Resorts World Cruises Is there a holiday more made for multigenerational get-togethers than Christmas? Treat the entire family to the most festive cruise filled with twinkling lights, vibrant decor, feast-worthy meals, and joyful carols. Whether you’re planning to exchange gifts on board or just looking forward to holidaying in the tropics, Christmas Wonderland won’t disappoint. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, indeed! Tips for multigenerational cruises Image credit: Resorts World Cruises Official Website Plan your vacation ahead of time. To get the best deals and staterooms, you’ll want to start vacation planning way before your scheduled tour date. It’s especially crucial to make reservations in advance if you’re interested in joining themed cruises and events. Pick the right ship. After all, you want every member of the family to have fun. Look for ships with the right facilities and activities for both kids and senior citizens. Schedule activities together, too! In your desire to ensure everyone’s having fun, you might forget the most important activity: family bonding. Sure, the kids should enjoy their playtime; adults need a bit of quiet adults-only moments, too. But make sure you’re spending time together on these cruises, too, whether that means family dinners or family-oriented events. Multigenerational vacations promise a memorable experience for the entire family. From fun-filled activities for the kids to endless opportunities for the elderly to relax, all-inclusive family cruises are value-packed — plus, it’s a great way to bond together away from home!

10 Tips & Tricks for First-Time Cruise Passengers

Peep our tips for a smooth sailing experience at sea. Setting sail for the very first time? Summer is the perfect time for a first-time cruise, with sunny skies and calm waters awaiting travellers. Beyond beautiful weather and stunning seascapes, there’s a lot to love about at-sea vacations: It’s adventure-friendly, good for all ages, all-inclusive, and a fun way to explore new countries. If this is your first time on a cruise, then you’re definitely in for a treat with Resorts World Cruises. Here are a few essential first-time cruise tips to help you make the most out of your getaway at sea. Ready to tick sailing off your bucket list? Make the most of your first-time cruise on the magnificent Genting Dream with amazing discounts in August and September. For a limited time only, book using UOB Cards to get up to S$300 off + an additional S$50 off! Additional $50 off per cabin is limited to the first 600 cabins booked. To avail of these incredible markdowns, use the promo code UOBNATAS when booking your cruise. Other awesome promos: The Palace Bring a Friend for Free, Kids Cruise Free, and Seniors enjoy 5% off . Booking period: 1 Aug – 10 Sep 2023 Sailing period: 1 Aug 2023 – Apr 2024  SAIL AWAY  Must-know tips for your first time on a cruise 1. Start with a short cruise  Image credit: Resorts World Cruises Sailing can take you all around the world, but for your first-time cruise experience, you may want to start with nearby destinations. Try dipping a toe in the water first! That way, you can slowly figure out what parts of the cruise you like — and the ones you’re less enamoured with. If you’re coming from Singapore, Resorts World Cruises is an excellent cruise liner for your first journey on the high seas. Two- and three-night cruises to places like Thailand and Malaysia are the perfect way to test the waters. Even experienced cruise passengers enjoy a quick sailing trip every now and then. Shorter cruises are wallet-friendly and convenient, offering a fun getaway that you won’t have to take too much time off work. Running out of vacation leaves? No problem. 2. Prepare all your travel documents Image credit: Aaftab Sheikh via Canva Pro Going by boat doesn’t mean you get to skip all the paperwork that comes with travelling between countries. Before boarding, make sure all your documents are on hand. A valid passport is always a requirement, but Resorts World Cruises also requires a valid long-term pass and re-entry permit for Singapore residents or a valid visa for foreigners. Each ship will probably ask for different requirements, so it’s best to confirm with your cruise liner or agent before the trip. 3. Pack smart Image credit: martin-dm via Canva Pro Frequent travellers take packing seriously, and it’s no different on a cruise! You want to make sure you have everything you need, after all. Some essentials include personal toiletries, a travel outlet adapter, a power bank, and a day bag for shore excursions. First-time cruise tips from experts even include packing a bottle of vino — yes, many ships actually allow passengers to bring their own wine. Remember to pack the most important items in your carry-on bag, even for shorter trips. That’s because it can take a few hours to get checked luggage. Medications should always be somewhere you can easily access, along with chargers, sunblock, sunglasses, and a change of clothes. 4. Splurge on luxury options Image credit: Resorts World Cruises Looking for something a little more upscale for a special occasion? Here’s one of our best insider tips for first-time cruise passengers: The Palace. Found in all Resorts World Cruises’ ships, this opulent ship-within-a-ship is an all-suite enclave designed for five-star travellers. A vacation at The Palace promises posh suite accommodations with premium amenities. More than that, The Palace spoils travellers with all sorts of luxury privileges: exclusive access to The Palace Restaurant and The Palace private pool; priority entry to theatre performances, spa facilities, and the Chef’s Table; and a Happy Hour with complimentary drinks. You’ll even enjoy a 24-hour butler concierge service! Embrace luxury travel on the high seas with your best bud at The Palace! From 1 Aug to 10 Sep 2023, cruise passengers can take advantage of Resorts World Cruises’ Bring Your Friend for Free promo. Yes, you can book a stay at The Palace and bring your best pal to enjoy the five-star experience with you for FREE.*  CRUISE WITH A FRIEND  *Terms and Conditions apply 5. Make a game plan for your cruise activities  Image credit: Resorts World Cruises If it’s your first time stepping on a cruise ship, you’ll be surprised at its sheer size and magnitude of onboard activities. Truthfully, these vessels are more like full-fledged floating resorts than anything else! Spend your first hours aboard reviewing the map of the ship and exploring the various areas. It’s best to know where everything is — and what amenities you can enjoy on the ship. For example, endless fun activities await on the premier cruise ship Genting Dream. Pristine cabins and suites aside, there are swimming pools, a waterslide park, a ropes course, a zipline, a theatre, and even a beach club for nighttime escapades. Travellers on a two- or three-day trip will have no problems filling their itineraries to the brim. (Although, relaxing poolside for two straight days is fine, too, if that’s your kind of vacay!) Tip: Leave time for shore excursions, too! Cruises are mostly about the journey, but surely, it’s also a little bit about the destination, right? 6. Plan your meals well Image credit: Resorts World Cruises Official Website Foodies on their first-time cruise, rejoice! You’re not a castaway here, so there’s no getting hungry on a cruise. Each trip with Resorts World Cruises is inclusive of multiple meals daily. Eat as much as you want at the halal buffet restaurant The Lido or the semi-buffet dining establishment The Dream Dining Room. Guests at The Palace will also enjoy dining at the exclusive restaurant within the all-suite enclave. Planning to try speciality dining experiences? There are plenty of choices, too, from fine dining at Silk Road Chinese Restaurant to Japanese and Korean favourites at Umi Uma. Just make sure you book early — it’s easy to run out of tables at these popular restaurants. 7. Join a themed trip for a unique first-time cruise experience Image credit: Resorts World Cruises Official Facebook Page Here’s the thing: Not all cruises are created the same. If one-of-a-kind experiences float your boat, then a themed cruise might be right up your alley! There are a wide variety of special-interest cruises available for a limited time, from carnival-themed trips to food festivals at sea. Sailing the open ocean is memorable enough on its own, but finding a fun theme to enjoy at sea takes a first-time cruise up a notch! Upcoming themed journeys with Resorts World Cruises include the UWeekly 22nd Anniversary (24–27 Sep 2023) with karaoke nights, games, and an anniversary dinner. If live performances are more your speed, hop aboard a Getai Theme Cruise (11–13 Oct 2023) for a two-hour Getai Music & Comedy Show that offers top-notch entertainment. And more fantastic celebrations are slated for the year, including the Halloween extravaganza Halloween At Sea and holiday festivities at the Xmas Wonderland.  MORE CRUISE EVENTS  8. Be ready for cashless payments Image credit: Georgi Dyulgerov Although most cruises are all-inclusive, travellers should be prepared to shell out some money for extra activities they may want to indulge in onboard. It’s always a good idea to check the types of payment methods available on the cruise you’re joining. For instance, Resorts World Cruises accepts Visa, Mastercard, UnionPay, GrabPay, AliPay, WeChat Pay, and KakaoPay. At the same time, make sure you have a little cash on you for gratuities and additional expenses during shore excursions. 9. Prep for seasickness Image credit: Ryan Johns First-time cruise passengers should be prepared for motion sickness, even if large modern cruise ships are far more stable than sailing in old-school boats. But don’t let this keep you from enjoying the journey; there’s over-the-counter medication you can buy to prevent you from getting seasick. If you get a sudden bout of motion sickness during the cruise, step outside your cabin. Fresh air and gazing at the horizon can help! Travellers prone to seasickness may also want to pick a cabin or suite around the middle of the ship where the rocking isn’t too much of an issue. 10. Keep an eye out for cruise deals Image credit: Resorts World Cruises Cruises are already pretty affordable for an all-inclusive getaway, but it’s even more budget-friendly if you book one of the many great cruise deals around. Look around for the best deals and most wallet-friendly prices, so you can maximise the value of your first time on a cruise. Nothing makes us more excited than a great deal, after all! Stick to your vacation budget with Resorts World Cruises’ awesome markdowns with UOB! Enjoy up to S$300 off + an additional S$50 off your first cruise when you book using UOB Cards. Plus, you can get an additional $50 off per cabin if you book the first 600 cabins. It’s as simple as using the promo code UOBNATAS when booking on the Resorts World Cruises website. Booking period: 1 Aug – 10 Sep 2023 Sailing period: 1 Aug 2023 – Apr 2024  SAIL WITH RESORTS WORLD CRUISES  Brought to you by Resorts World Cruises.

7 Reasons Why Your Next Date Should Be a Cruise

Fall in love in the deep blue. Running out of date ideas and seeking the ultimate romantic escapade? Look no further than the high seas. Whether you're wooing a new flame or celebrating an anniversary, an all-inclusive cruise with Resorts World Cruises will enchant and delight. Known for premier ships and resort-style entertainment, the cruise line delivers an experience to remember for travellers eager to journey by sea. But as much as cruises are about adventure and exploration, they're also an opportunity to treat your significant other to your most unforgettable romantic date yet. Not yet convinced? Here are some of the top reasons why you should start planning a cruise for your next couple's getaway. 1. Spectacular views When you're on a ship, you're surrounded by the ocean 24/7. That means couples can count on a panoramic natural backdrop for their love story (and Instagram updates) all day and all night. From secluded beaches and the open sea to charming coastal towns and the glittering stars at night, the views from a cruise ship are a feast for the eyes. Sprawling decks on the Resorts World Cruises vessels promise breathtaking seascapes. But if you want your own slice of paradise, treat yourself and book a Balcony Stateroom on the Genting Dream or a Palace Suite on Resorts World One. Private sunset moments? Yes, please. 2. Luxury experiences at The Palace for five-star couples If you're willing to splurge a bit more to pamper your special someone, Resorts World Cruises delivers a signature five-star experience with The Palace. The all-suite private club is an extra-luxurious world on the ship — and it goes beyond just the elegant suite accommodations. Guests of The Palace are treated like royalty with 24-hour butler concierge services and a private lounge to chill in. They're also given access to exclusive areas, including a pool and Jacuzzi area, Palace Restaurant, and Palace steamroom and sauna. If the occasion calls for something extra special, The Palace can provide. Trust us when we say this one's proposal-worthy. 3. Extended dates Take your partner on a cruise and you won't have to say goodbye after a movie and a dinner. Rather, you can have date night every night on the ship — and then continue where you left off as soon as you wake up! Dress up for a delicious meal at one of the specialty restaurants, and lounge poolside enjoying each other's company. If you and your significant other find it a challenge to spend quality time together at home, then a cruise presents the perfect opportunity to reconnect! 4. Making memories in new destinations There's nothing quite like seeing the world with your favourite person, don't you think? Not only is the adventure more fun with The One by your side but travelling as a couple can help create deeper bonds and more meaningful memories together. It's also a great way to speed up the getting-to-know-you phase if you haven't been together for very long — they say you never really know someone until you travel with them! With Resorts World Cruises, you'll get to explore some of Asia's most amazing destinations, from the white-sand beaches of Thailand to the vibrant foodie scene of Malaysia. Other destinations include China, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan. 5. Incredible dining options If the way to a man or woman's heart is their stomach, then your partner is bound to fall head over heels in love after a day or two on Genting Dream. The resort-style cruise ship features 35 restaurants and bars onboard, with crowd-favourite The Lido buffet restaurant standing out as the only halal-certified dining spot on a cruise in Asia. Sister ship Resorts World One also delivers a fantastic foodie experience: It has a diverse array of complimentary and specialty restaurants that primarily serve flavourful Asian cuisine. 6. Enjoy world-class amenities on a floating resort Whether your partner is an adrenaline junkie eager for thrilling activities, a leisurely traveller seeking a relaxing break, or an explorer keen to see new cities, Resorts World Cruises' tours allow couples to make the most of vacation time aboard their ships. Love thrills and spills? The Rope Course and Zipline on Genting Dream is a one-of-a-kind feature geared towards thrill-seekers. Need a little couple's pampering? Crystal Life Spa is your stop. And if you're just after a bit of swimming and sunbathing, Parthenon Pool on Resorts World One is the hangout spot we'd love to spend all day in. 7. Everything is taken care of When you're planning a romantic getaway, you want it to be stress-free, of course. Nothing sours romance more than a failed itinerary! Luckily, tours with Resorts World Cruises lift the burden of planning, managing, and coordinating your trip off your shoulders. With their all-inclusive packages, travellers can rest assured that most expenses are covered, transportation is seamless, meals are provided, and all you need to do is pack and show up. The only thing the cruise liner can't help you with is romancing your partner. So, do you want to take your relationship to the next level? Set sail on Resorts World One or Genting Dream for a memorable cruise with Resorts World Cruises with your special someone. Brought to you by Resorts World Cruises.

Scarf down the tastiest delights from around the world No need to actually fly halfway across the planet to discover all the culinary gems each country has to offer. Instead, you can get a taste of 'em on Deck 16 of the Genting Dream with Savour Around the World this summer. Expect an exorbitant amount of food, so make sure your appetite is ready. In the mood for American favourites like giant burgers and foot-long hot dogs? Perhaps you're craving authentic Mexican tacos.

Sample as much as you can, learn about international cuisine, and maybe you'll even discover a new favourite dish aboard! 2.

At Savour Around the World, these colourful inflatables are food-inspired, of course. Tasty-looking Instagrammable setups surround the area, too!

Take a dip in quirky foodie-approved jacuzzis This is a vacation, so take the time to let yourself sit back and relax.

Four jacuzzis on the deck promise there's plenty of room for multiple travellers, providing the perfect setting for unwinding at any time of the day. And since we're here to celebrate our love for food, these jacuzzis have been made extra foodielicious. Soak in hot tubs that are dressed up to look like spicy stews and savoury soups — it's a new way to enjoy a soothing dip, that's for sure! 5. Explore Genting Dream's on-board dining spots Savour Around the World is a fantastic excuse to indulge and introduce new cuisine to cruise-goers.
