Need some advice about parking at the Marina Bay Cruise Center

I heard that parking spaces are limited after being converted into an ART test center. Can we still drive and park? Is there chance of finding a parking space arrive at around 2pm

Thanks!
2pm tough. 1pm got chance.

food wise i will say RC, but if you booked Palace in DC, i will say comparable.

entertainment wise, i think RC more of activities but DC more of 1 show 1 magic show and casino.
Went on RC recently. Agree with you that RC is better, food and activities wise. Service on RC is also miles better than DC. RC felt more crowded than DC due to more families taking part in activities, whereas DC had more pax going for casino and less crowded activities as a result. My elderlies also complained that the RC casino is expensive and have limited machines. They play liao not shiok 😅

Alcohol wise, DC’s cocktails are much better but RC got better sparkling/white/red wine.

If staying in palace can just leave yr luggage in cabin n ask butler to trx to yr new cabin. Disembark at last timing abt 10.30 to 10.45 then wait till abt 12 to ART again

The market for DC & RC is different. You wont find RC guests going 10 over times per year right lol.. 3 times they will complain is expensive for RC. i ask my frd go SOTS he already say is expensive hahaha.

Each to his own.. Both got its pros and cons...Even inclusive meals RC also got bad reviews. So is all up to individual taste. Will u pay hundreds for a massage in RC? Will u play ifly or flowrider ?

Regular cruisers will look for value, benefits and perks... If hit and run just go once or twice i think abit more will choose to have more to offer onboard... Cos they just want to have that experience and said i been onboard before.

Yes. Need to disembark then follow the same check-in procedures. This is one area that needs improvements. Can probably write in and provide feedbacks, hope when they received more feedbacks, they might do something about it.

This has been the arrangement since Virgo/Gemini time years ago and until now nothing changed. Fortunately you can just inform the RWAS staff at membership counter (if booked under RWAS) and leave your luggage behind in the cabin when you disembark. They will transfer your luggage to the new cabin. You just relax disembark and re-check in again for your continue cruise.

At one time they have one combined 6D/5N or 2 separate 4D/3N and 3D/2N itineraries that return back Singapore in-between the cruise days. If you are on the 6D/5N cruise, you don't have to disembark when the cruise returned back SG. Too bad no more such booking.

Last time when disembark need to do ART test, it is better because they use the exit PCR as your entry PCR for your next cruise. So basically you can do swab test and check in earlier.

That’s true… different markets after all ☺️ RC cannot go often. I’m going RC again next month though as my hubby didn’t go the last round. After that, don’t think I’ll go RC again for a very long time. I did have a bad meal at RC inclusive restaurant once but once out of all the meals, still ok lah. The paid activities are indeed very expensive and I won’t ever go North Star, flowrider etc. The inclusive activities are more than enough and very enjoyable. All in, more fun for the family ☺️ For the VIP experience, I take DC palace any day and value for money definitely.

I've some questions regarding the 10TP comp cabins, hopefully someone can enlighten me.

1. I've seen people mentioning that hitting 10tp will entitle us to 3 comp cabins (3 trips) , but when I called, the staff mentioned that I'm only entitled to 1 comp cabin cabin. Was this just changed, or is the staff following protocols to misled us that it's only 1 comp cabin / trip?

2. When do they normally open slots for a new month(Mar) , or more slots for existing months(Jan/Feb)? The staff mentioned that they're fully booked and released some additional slots ytd, but already all gone today😅

3. Is there any way to sign up for RWAS before boarding, or use genting membership to avoid the non-member fee for the accompanying guest?

4. Any estimated on the charges for additional 3rd/4th pax in the comp room?
