Do share your experience when you are back. thanks.
I think I will summaries my experience in pros and cons ( as suite guest)

Pro:
Priority boarding and butler service, exclusive dream palace restaurant and specialty restaurant dining. Nice big and new ship, palace suite is Super nice with 5 star hotel feel.

Outdoor cinema very shiok and comfy, zouk music is good ( with pathetic crowd thou) 360 bar very good concept ppl can gamble and listen live performance

Mark best by bistro is really good, steak is the best!

Cons:
Delay boarding for 2 hours, those book balcony and below Q Long Long, very chaotic.
Staff mainly Chinese, most have u owe them 2 million face
Quite crowded, but mainly at casino
Long Q at dining room but inside half filled, still took 15 mins to serve dinner.
Staff not good knowledge, ask 10 thing 9 dunno
Not much entertainment and the dream voyager show is disappointing, the astronaut and mermaid come out perform separately then only 10 second meet ( not even interacting) then show over, I stun like vegetable. Royal Caribbean show is so much better.

Actually I really dunno how to comment Liao, summary is u got money book suite to chill and gamble then ok, if book balcony and below Ho seh Liao prepare to Q Q and Q, or just keep gambling, it is just a bigger star cruise trying to market high end but service cannot make it la.
If family cruise, I suggest royal Caribbean. If want gamble, book cheapest room clock point and redeem free room go can Liao. Or like me sot sot want no crowd to chillax book suite room, the suite guest pool shiok no crowd all sunbed let u choose jacuzzi also your own self one, but price double la

For balcony and below, yes only this 4 place, lido is buffet at pool deck level. World grill I think is outside lido, the other 2 is like fine dining restaurant one western one eastern.

I usually dine in dream palace restaurant for suite guest, once I wanted to try these place, my butler escort me in I see Long Q outside, so maybe need to book first? The app onboard seems can make booking

Beware that u can only dine once at each time slot, cuz they will scan ur card each time, so if u go lido for lunch and decided to pop by dining room at lunch slot again they will treat u as 2nd time dining and charge $15

And no room service, chargeable if you want
Seems that they didn't scan our cards at royal carribean.

Interested to try Dream.
A few qns,

1) Smoking allow? seem so accord to review? What about smoking at cabin balcony?

2) I thought the staff to passengers And passengers to area ratio is the lowest in Asia? Still need to queue in most activities? It's not efficient?

3) What's other must try facilities or interesring events beside production shows?

4) I heard no takeaway of food. It's true? Can I just take food back to my room if I prefer not to site in dinning room?

5) What kind of drinks is available for free?

6) Casino cover the entire deck?

Smoking allow in a lot of place including room balcony and casino and all outdoor area

My butler told me many staff transfer to new world dream, so at my point of sailing is under staff, and Q is because they scan card very slow and it is a lot of ppl

Zip line, rock climbing and water slides, prepare to Q thou lol. They have Zumba on pool deck more like line dance but fun la, firework was cancelled on my trip but is suppose to be highlight for 5N cruise

Cannot takeaway even for suite guest, maybe u can try but if u return need to Q again and pay $15 for 2nd time dining

Similar to royal Caribbean, no soft drink unless pay, got free ice cream in buffet restaurant thou

Casino cover err 2 to 3 decks, midship, a lot Uncle auntie gambling Sia and a lot of slot machines, quite fun got gambling mood and got 360 bar ppl singing live very happening

From reviews here seems like Dream cruise line is a gambling and Asian oriented cruise line. Will give it a miss and stick to more premium cruise lines

Hi need some help

My cruise is on this Sunday

Receive email today telling us about city check in on Friday or Sat if we want to

What's the advantage of doing prior city check in ?

Will it speed up my boarding process on actual boarding day ?

Cos city check in is just for checking in. Luggage still need to drop in on actual day for security reason

If makes no difference then I won't spend an extra trip to the office near Tanjong Pagar

If got difference think it's worth it to make it trip to the office.

For casino it's in sing dollar right ?

So for slot machine is it like old time in Star Cruise that can use SG one dollar coins ?

Or all use special casino coins now ?

Actually I wanted to book suits but by the time I book only got balcony rooms available on the website

Maybe a blessing in disguise now that it's docking at North Bali instead of the usual tourist site

It's definitely not affected by the volcano as the wind is blowing south and at least 100km away

Tempted to take one of those excursions that will get closer to the volcano and see though but worry about safety

Maybe should be kiasi and just stay onbaord or just go walk walk around the port

Dream is definitely Asian oriented, as so far only serve China/HK and SG. As for gambling, I guess too since it's Genting!!

How's the price like for food in the 24 hour blue lagoon? Will be going genting dream next year...

Hows the timing for World grill like?

1st time taking Genting dream, in the past usually RCL and Costa, not used to having no 24 hour food available cruise.

Sorry I didnt gamble, but I think I saw casino game with singapore dollar notes hanging, instead of USD in royal Caribbean so I'm guessing is SGD

There is a coin pusher machine that use $1 sgd coin

That's my observation from walking past, but didn't stay Long as the cigarette smell too strong
