Offering vacationers exciting round-trip cruises to Penang and Singapore
AS CRUISE travel has recently restarted, you might be wondering: are cruises any fun right now?
While everyone’s idea of fun differs, cruises are still a great time for families, couples and even solo travellers looking for thrills on the high seas.
Resorts World Cruises announced that it is the first cruise line to add a Kuala Lumpur homeport – via Port Klang – for the Genting Dream cruise, which began July 18 this year, in addition to the Singapore homeport which commenced on June 15.
With the dual homeport options, travellers can now choose to embark from Port Klang or Singapore.
Travellers have the option to choose a series of round-trip cruises from Port Klang, including two-night cruises to Singapore (departing on Thursdays and Saturdays), and three-night cruises to Penang and Singapore (departing on Mondays), with prices starting from RM599 onwards per person. Terms and conditions apply.
The dual homeport decision was designed to further cater for the demand of round-trip cruises, targeting the 10 million population residing in central peninsular Malaysia (Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan and Malacca) who live within a short drive of Port Klang, the embarkation port.
With the international gateway that is KL International Airport also located nearby, international travellers will now have greater flexibility in choice of airlines and fares, ensuring they can match their trips to their port of choice with the right amount of transit time in between.
Resorts World Cruises also offered one-way cruises as an alternative to air and land travel for the millions of travellers between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. As such, travel agents now have a wider portfolio to offer for the most popular Malaysia and Singapore holiday packages with one-way and round-trip cruises from either embarkation point too.
“Resorts World Cruises is excited to take the lead for the cruise sector to boost the inbound and outbound tourists for Singapore; and to bring cruising to the ‘doorsteps’ of Malaysians residing in central peninsular Malaysia as they can depart from Port Klang, which is convenient and affordable,” said Resorts World Cruises president Michael Goh.
“As Genting Dream is certified as the world’s first OIC/SMIIC* standard halal-friendly cruise ship, this will appeal to a significant segment of Malaysians and international travellers across the region,” he added.
With the addition of the Port Klang homeport, more vacationers from Malaysia can now go on the Genting Dream for “A Resort Cruising at Sea”. And for those who like to be active on vacation, cruises like the Genting Dream also offer many fun activities on board and at your dream destination at an affordable price.
With Genting Dream, you can discover the convenience and exciting benefits of cruising, a hassle-free travel experience that will no longer require you to pack, unpack or even change hotels at each destination.
The ship will serve as your one-stop accommodation for the entire voyage, featuring interior staterooms, ocean view, balcony staterooms and the luxurious accommodation, The Palace – a “ship-within-a-ship” private enclave with exclusive amenities and facilities, including its own 24-hour European-style butler service.
You can enjoy a variety of inclusive offerings on board the ship as part of your cruise package, including feasting at Dream Dining or The Lido, featuring a wide spread of international and Asian cuisine with a dedicated section for certified halal, vegetarian and jain cuisine.
There’s also an all-day snack corner, amazing international stage performances and movie screenings at the impressive 1,000-seat capacity Zodiac theatre, a water park at sea with a pool and six waterslides, rope courses and ziplines, a rock-climbing wall with more recreational activities for the entire family.
For the voyage, all crew and cruising guests are required to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 to safeguard and provide peace of mind for all onboard. In addition, cruising guests will also have to undergo a self-paid pre-cruise Antigen Rapid Test (ART) for Covid-19 one day before departure.
If you’ve never taken a cruise before, this could be an opportunity to explore one of the most fun cruise experiences out there.
