thanks both... welcome any other replies or suggestions.

my dad has problem walking (walking stick), so just some walking and eating and relaxing and some gaming i guess. thanks for the input, appreciate

anything to take note of, for elderly?.

State Interior, got sofa or not ah?
I suggest to request from cruise centre to use wheel chair as walking distance quite far.

You can request to get cabin near lift and dinning place so do not need to walk very far. We also do the same as my mother also cannot walk far.

First trip is the hardest. After that is easier.

If you decide to come back despite the CECA and local aunties

Then i wont suggest the Lido Buffet as can be quite crowded.

Yes use the wheelchair service which have priority during embark/disembark.

Interior stateroom do not have sofa..

GD is a place for gambling /makan, chill out/drink..

actually what are the memberships for, can anyone help to explain?

can we take wheelchair but not actually use it? coz my dad doesnt like to use it

@Winterdews: if dont go for the Lido buffet, where else is a good option?
Is the Teppanyaki an extra $58 or $78 per person ? It's not included in the meals right?

Teppanyaki is paid

You will receive a daily newspaper on the activites and food timings for the day. Those are free

Others need to pay like teppanyaki, hotpot
Good resturants, but expensive

The membership is like those Airlines Frequent Flyer Programs or those Shopping Mall Rewards. There are 2 types on Dream Cruises.
1. One is for Casino Gambling similar to the one in Genting Highlands Malaysia if you have been to their Casino before. This one on DC is known as Resorts World At Sea (RWAS) Membership use to earn points from Casino Gambling for future free Cabin redemption.
2. The other one is Dream Elite to earn Elite Point from whatever spending onboard including your Cruise Fare if you have paid in cash and not from redemption.

You probably want to request for temporary wheelchair assistant during embarkation/disembarkation (boarding departure/arrival) due to the waiting time, queue, immigation and walking distance between gates and ship/cabin.

Japanese Teppanyaki has few menus options ranging from Chicken meat, Seafood or Beef at different price ranges and is per person basis. This is not inclusive but chargeable. You may want to scroll through some earlier posts to read more about those inclusive (free) and exclusive (chargeable) Restaurants onboard.

RWAS membership is for your gaming purpose to clock points so to redeem cabins and gifts etc. Usually 1st time to go silver is not difficult.

Dream Elite is a non gaming membership purely based on money purchasing your cruise package and onboard spending. Got extra benefits.

I think you can bring wheelchair onboard as i seen before. But you may verify with Dream Cruise just to be sure.

The teppanyaki which is at UMI UMA is a non inclusive restuarant so you will need to pay.

Genting Dream inclusive free restaurants are Lido ,Upper & Lower Dinning & Function 8. The rest all chargeable.

You can look at the menu for the inclusive resturants which is shown on the screen outside the restaurant.

Go to function8 for buffet to avoid apnn, normally the buffet selection has the western + asian food selection.

If not I find the dream dining asian food to be quite good, can request for free topup of any dish.

you are allowed to bring your own wheelchair

Quote :
Yes, we will have wheelchairs available on request and a declaration form with deposit is required at time of borrowing. Should guests require wheelchair use on a permanent basis they should bring their own. Wheelchair users should be reminded to request an accessible stateroom.

*Use of wheelchair is not permitted at shore side of ports of call.

Usually, buying from tour agent or directly from the cruise website is better?

Dream Cruise website and agents are the same. The agents are just a reseller for Dream Cruise where they earn a comm selling for Dream Cruise.

For Dream Cruise go for natas fair or roadshows for better deals.

For agents is just what gifts or marketing perks they want to throw in.
