Guests will be able to redeem vouchers for set meals at designated restaurants or dining credit at speciality venues
Dream Cruises has launched a new Flexi-Feast dining concept onboard Explorer Dream, as the ship begins sailing cruises from Taiwan.
Guests will receive a set of complimentary dining vouchers upon embarkation, which can be used to redeem set meals at designated restaurants. Alternatively, the vouchers will be honoured as onboard dining credits at speciality restaurants and bars, as well as for room service. This will allow passengers to choose from a wider choice of dining venues than they would normally be able to.
“As we enter into a post-Covid-19 new norm of cruising, the Flexi-Feast strategy will help us provide better social distancing at our dining venues by seating our guests across all our restaurants instead of concentrating on a few inclusive ones,” said Michael Goh, president of Dream Cruises. “We will continue to adhere to our stringent preventive measures on various aspects of the cruise journey, including comprehensive guidelines and protocols on food hygiene practices and standards, to ensure that travellers will be kept safe and reassured on their cruise journey,”
The Flexi-Feast concept will be applicable on all sailings of Explorer Dream’s island-hopping itinerary in Taiwan. To highlight the local cuisine, Explorer Dream is collaborating with Taiwanese food and beverage brands including bubble tea brand Sharetea, craft brewer Taihu Brewing, Tien Hsia San Chueh Noodle Cuisine and Formosa Chen, Taiwan’s largest fast-food chain. Additionally, all restaurants onboard the ship will serve speciality dishes created with seasonal produce sourced in Taiwan.
Explorer Dream underwent extensive cleaning and quarantine procedures before resuming sailing, with all crew testing negative for Covid-19. She departed on her inaugural voyage from Keelung, Taiwan on 26 July, with the cruise line reporting sold-out sailings throughout July and August.
