PG shore excursion, Dream has two.
One with a guide at SGD 45 in the town for 3 hours to some nonsensical place like see some jetty and wall painting. My most unpleasant time as
PG was burning hot and long waiting time in the streets. Run by the Palace so it is free for me.

The other is just a transfer service to PG hill and cost about SG30
Taxi service is safe but they are all ripoff artist.
Use Grab service or pay RM20 to the shopping mall about 5 mins away.
Anyone be Penang Shore Excursions? How much ah?
Or it is safe to take the taxi at Penang?

Good to know that you had an awesome time.

What time did you arrive at Marina Bay cruise centre on departure day (Sunday)? For my upcoming cruise, the official check-in time starts at 1pm and departure time is at 5pm. Another cruise (Sapphire Princess) will also be departing on that same day at 4pm so I guess the cruise terminal will be very busy. Is it advisable to arrive earlier than 1pm??

For arrival back to SIN on Wednesday at 6pm, how long does it take for palace guests to disembark plus collection of suitcases? Need to pre book taxi hence would be useful to know the approximate time.
No worries for palace guest for embark and disembark. Is "special lane/arrangement". Collected my suitcase immediately upon disembarkation. I am among the first 10 guest that disembark.

Pre-book taxi, no comments. Timing states 6pm arrive. But may delay or earlier.

Enjoy your trip.

Silk Road not many people, I don't see any problem to just walk in and have a table immediately and of course you need to pay for every dishes. They are not free.

Lido mostly Indian buffet? Not true, about 25%. Western food about 25%, Chinese food about 40% and Halah food 10%.
yup, cuz initially i tot it was oso free for everyone.

but after checking its chargeable , is their food expensive ?

they call it cabaret club oso, means there is someone dancing on stage and all?

Shall consider the just PG hill tour.

Silk Road is so called fine dinner, so expect prices a little higher.
I heard it is topless show, correct me if I am wrong coz I never watch before.

Depending on the weather, if it is not so warm, may consider to take grab to other places after visiting the hill, see first.

Saw Silk Road has set menu too something like $28/set for a 3 course meal.

The topless show has 1 performance per cruise period at Silk Road Cabarat on one of the late evening. Saw on the promotional brochure has package for couple including drinks above $240++.

For Penang, suggest to join their Shore Excursion package if you want to visit Penang Hill. Reason is there is a seperate queue for Tour Group for the cable car both ways up or down hills. The queue could be very long with many locals and normal tourists especially during peak period, and queuing for up to an hour or longer.

Sometime is good to join the cruise Shore Excursion tour package for special attraction. Sorry not trying to sell here but recommend so as not to miss to rejoin back the ship on time before departure as ship will not wait for you if you come back late.
