While the Australian government is still trying to work out how to allow domestic cruises to happen in Australia, despite the valiant work of CLIA and cruise operators, Singapore, once again shows us how things cruising should be done, with Dream Cruises and Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore [MBCCS] having welcomed Singapore’s 100,000thYES I SAID 100,000th cruise passenger, since the commencement of safe pilot cruises in the city.

Starting with World Dream’s first sailing from back in 6 November 2020, YES I SAID NOVEMBER 2020 nearly 6 months ago, Singaporeans have been cruising with Dream Cruises, described as a worry-free journey for guests aboard, with their health and safety being the number one priority for Dream Cruises, with the lucky 100,000 guest, Mr Amin Abdul Rahim and his family presented with a collection of prizes and goodies including an upgrade to The Palace suite accommodations for their upcoming voyage.
