Not really. Looking at the situation now, those who paid full for the cruise are enjoying very good deal. 2nd pax cruise for free or earlier promo of 25% to 35% discount + citibank additional $200 off per cabin. Many people signed up and now if you notice, basically all the 2n bintan cruise are fully booked all the way till Nov.

When so when demand are so high for the weekend cruise, how are we able to redeem? Trust the platinum tiers and above then able to get a cabin.

So..their idea i think is, just take the inside stateroom and invest more in them. Then they upgrade you and then you might get what you want once you reach the tier.

World Dream is sister ship of Genting Dream but based in China or Hong Kong.

Explorer Dream is ex-SuperStar Virgo and smaller in term of size - 75k gross tonnage compared with GD or WD about 150k gross tonnage. She is currently deployed in Japan but will reposition to Australia/NZ from Oct 2019.

Dream Cruises or their Genting casino operation Resorts World at Sea (RWAS) has recently changed their redemption or complimentary cruise program. Many seems to be affected from redeeming cruises on Genting Dream but not sure if similar for World Dream or Explorer Dream not sailing out from Singapore. Their membership point system used to able to redeem cruises on Star Cruises too including Star Pisces sailing out of HK. With the recent changes it is unclear about the impact on cruises in other Ports including Penang, HK, or Japan etc.

Somehow they have at least 2 different departments managing the cruises Sales. One will handle the Leisure group of passengers like normal tourists while the other for Casino Membership. Usually certain number of cabins will be blocked or reserved for Casino Members which is their main rice bowl.

Well..seems it is the case then. Now i am thinking, if I join their Dream Elite member, will I get the dream elite points if I pay full for my cabin?

Further to my last post, if dream elite points are issued for purchasing the cabins, it means i will have at least 1500 dream elite points and my next 2 cruises will be free.

New Genting policy, you get no free cruises for mass gambling membership. But for High Rollers they get Palace and more.

Elite membership is for the birds. I have 8000 points and have privileges like priority booking for paying restaurants. If I get to the top rank of 30,000, best deal is 1 time upgrade for cabin.

The elite point earning does not work as what you think of cabin fare $1500 will earn 1500 elite point. Instead you only earn by the number of night you cruise. Example 200 point
per One Qualifying Night in a Stateroom of Balcony Deluxe and below while Suite earn double of 400 points per One Qualifying Night. Only Purchase onboard eligible for a dollar to a point earning.

Don't think 1500 points will be sufficient to redeem free cruise for even 1 night.

Whatever you spent onboard would earn you Dream Elite point except for Port Charges and Gratutity.

Cruise Fare only earn 200 points per Night for Balcony Deluxe and lower or 400 points per Night for Suite.

Just back from wed cruise to Malacca. Verified with membership counter, you will still get free cabins based on your past gambling rate and hours. The new 25tp and 50tp is only valid for Friday cruise onboard earning. 25tp will get you $300 credits and 50tp will have $700 credits, both with free cabins for next cruise. You still need to call in to check with your entitlement including free cabin and credits from mainland. Which means for my entitlement, I have free cabins with $300 credits, upon earning 25tp onboard, I can get additional $300 credits (last month only $150)

You can try email them to check and credit you the point if this qualified. However it may takes few weeks before it shows up in your record.
