for the ropes course, they will strap u on to a safety harness and provide u with a helmet and then they will teach u how to use the equipment before u are up on your own. there wont be someone up there to help u, u are actually on your own, so no way to give up half way in between if u fear of heights. Only until the zipline stage at the end, there will be 2 staffs there to doublecheck your equipment once again before u zoom across.

I went twice, u can take your time to try everything on the ropes course, there are some easier ones to get u to the end, while there are also the challenging kind like the rock wall and the spider web. There is a big net below for safety precaution too. Chances to fall in the net I don't think is high

U need to wear sport shoes definitely. No open shoes. And it can get rather hot once u are on it. They only operate on good weather. They will close the ropes course if it gets windy.

Hope that helps.

Hi sherlyn2506 and all who board Dream before, any of you try the rope course zip-line, how's it? Any safety net or precaution?

I check youtube it seem like freefall but couldn't verify as its too fast.
That time I went too windy I scared I will flew off the ship lol so I didn't try, good to know there are different route, I probably go for the easiest one lol just wanna try the zip line hehe.

hey guys, the ropes course is quite fun actually. but for twice I only went the easier route. I saw some guys did the more challenging ones. The whole rope course will not be opened if its windy/raining. Or else u wont get your balance up there. And for the zipline, there is no safety net, but its not very fast also. The staff there will doublecheck your harnesses again at the start of the zipline.

They only operate for a certain timing only. So take e chance if u have.

See what these guy at GD just did. Going back to the old Citibank promotion again. After 1 month of about zero sales with their birthday sales promotion. Same way they are running GD on the ship with boarding mess, long queue, bad service and food.

Birthday promo is stupid. I can only go during school holiday (june, nov, dec) but none of my family members' birthday is on those months.

Haha got at least 1 sale cuz I book 2 rooms on mar, both my dad and sis born in mar lol. But abit lame cuz only 1 room allow each bday, so cannot 1 big group go and they don't have family room, squeeze 4 ppl in 1 room is pathetic Sia.

Citibank also lame, come on la want do promo do for all la, only balcony and below have 40% discount, u think ppl carrot head let u anyhow chop Sia, expensive also nobody sail suite, later all sail balcony cheap cheap then suite expensive no ppl buy, mistake Sia then GD spend so much money hire ppl in dream suite but nobody to serve, in the end free upgrade balcony ppl to suite, if u give 40% for suite at least ppl like me will book the suite, lose less money wat.

See how RC doing so well, always full sailing. Even suite also full. That's good marketing and sales tactic. I love RC suite it's so big the room

Seldom have promotional rates for suites. Not sure why you got only 1 birthday special. I would book your sister with a phony non existent person and do a no show for that phony person at check in. Done that before when promotion is for 2 persons only. Matters a lot for RCL as they charge for 2 persons per room. Not so much for GD as they charge 1.5 times for solo cruiser.
Just notice Citibank promotion upgrade is now from window to balcony deluxe. Interest in their 5N cruise in July. But like to see your feedback on the March cruise before doing anything.
