Dream Cruises and Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore have welcomed the 100,000th passenger onboard World Dream since the start of safe pilot cruises in the city on 6 November 2020.

Amin Abdul Rahim and his family were presented with a collection of prizes, including an upgrade to The Palace suite accommodation for their voyage. The Palace includes exclusive dining experiences, activities and all-inclusive privileges.

“My family and I were surprised and are extremely honoured to be the 100,000th cruise passenger as this is our first time onboard World Dream,” said Rahim. “We had heard many good things about the cruise, and we are especially looking forward to the Halal-certified cuisine which is so important to us. We are also excited about experiencing The Palace and we can't wait to share our experience with our family and friends.”

Dream Cruises has been sailing themed ‘Super Seacations’ based upon experiences from popular travel destinations during the pandemic. Guests can embark on the ‘Rhythm of Korea’ cruises until 31 March and ‘Amazing Thailand’ from 31 March to 28 May.

“Having pioneered the safe pilot cruises in Singapore, we are excited to be part of this important milestone to celebrate Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore’s 100,000th cruise,” said Michael Goh, president of Dream Cruises. “We hope to continue to welcome more Singapore residents aboard World Dream throughout the year.”

World Dream has also become the first cruise ship to receive a three-year Certification in Infection Prevention – Maritime from classification society DNV, following its previous CruiseSafe Certification by the Singapore Tourism Board and DNV.

“This momentous occasion underscores the progress that Dream Cruises has made in charting a new course for safe cruising and regaining the confidence of passengers,” said Annie Chang, director of cruise for the Singapore Tourism Board. “We will continue to work with the industry to advance the cause for cruise tourism in Singapore and the region.”
