Slated to arrive in Asia in Q2 2021, Dream Cruises’ Global Dream will be the largest cruise ship in the world by passenger capacity. Here’s what cruisers can expect, reports Rebecca Rachel Wong.


1. World's longest roller coaster at sea

Perhaps the most exciting attraction on board, the “Space Cruiser” will be located inside Dream Park at the Pier− the first-ever theme park at sea. The roller coaster offers passengers an adrenaline-inducing ride of up to 60 km/h, and can accommodate two riders per vehicle. Riders will get to experience the feeling of flying over the sea, with an integrated throttle to control the ride’s speed along the 303m track. Cruisers will also be happy to know that the roller coaster is currently being set up on land for testing purposes in Güstrow, Germany. Before leaving the test site, the system will be dismantled and transported to the shipyard for final assembly.

2. One-of-a-kind theme park attractions

Aside from the “Space Cruiser”, Dream Park at the Pier will include other fun attractions to please families. Kids and adults can look forward to 6 water slides and a whirlpool at its water park section. There will also be an inflatable Bounce Activity Park, where guests can run, bounce and jump their way around the massive obstacle course. Other attractions include a special trampoline park, a surf simulator and a bungee trampoline which lets guests accomplish acrobatic feats while attached to a safety harness. Also, a human gyroscope ride which spins and twirls guests, and mini karts for tots to test their driving skills in a safe environment. Dream Avenue (the ship’s multi-purpose outdoor avenue) will even contain a zipline, so guests can experience soaring through the centre of the ship.

3. High-tech goodies

The state-of the-art vessel will feature the latest hardware and advanced technology. Designed and manufactured in Germany by MV Werften, Global Dream will be equipped with the best safety standards, build quality, speed, power, stability, navigation and noise-minimisation. The cruise ship will also be the first in the world to have 8 sets of public escalators on board. This allows quick and convenient transport for guests, and eliminates waiting times at packed lifts during peak hours. Other high-tech features include voice and facial recognition technology, self-guided mobile assistants and a smart app for passengers.

4. Luxurious staterooms

Accommodating over 9,000 passengers and with a lower berth capacity of 4,700, Global Dream will have 2,350 cabins. Cabin types include villas, penthouses, suites, balcony cabins and inside cabins. With 20 square metres of space, the Global Class cabins will be the industry’s most spacious staterooms. Approximately 15% larger than standard cabins on other lines, each stateroom can comfortably house 4 guests. All come equipped with 2 bathrooms and convertible partitions, allowing for maximum privacy. Additionally, cabins will be built with Bluetooth locks and a new smart system. This enables passengers to control different functions like climate and LED mood lighting, using either a smartphone app, voice recognition or through a touch-screen control panel. Guests who value a VIP experience can opt for Dream Cruises’ signature 151-suite luxury concept, ‘The Palace’. The latest rendition of The Palace will be spread across four decks.

5. Abundant amenities and dining options

With boundless entertainment and dining facilities, it’s safe to say that guests will never be bored on Global Dream. The Picturehouse will be the largest cinema at sea, with 8 separate theatres convertible for meetings and events. For live shows, the Zodiac theatre houses up to 1,200 guests. Partygoers can make a beeline for Zouk, Singapore’s internationally-renowned nightlife brand and one of the world’s top three clubs. Passengers can also relax at Asian and Western spas, or visit the ship’s ample shopping facilities. For foodies who love authentic Asian dining, the ship’s Hong Kong-style eatery will offer 15 choices of noodle dishes and Hong Kong milk tea. Those looking for variety will appreciate The Lido buffet, with international cuisine and special food options for vegetarian and halal consumers.
