What do you mean you haven’t got plan for Christmas holidays yet? You might have tried going abroad many times, but there’s no experience compares to cruising with the loved ones.


Closing this year, 5-star cruise line Dream Cruise is back to present a family-themed “Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse” for nuclear families. Cruising experience could be boring or troublesome for children, but with the presence of their favorite superheroes, it is a win-win solution for a whole family.

What do I have to prepare?

Dream Cruiseline has various routes to start with, and we suggest you to take the 5-nights tour for more immersive experience. If your kids are such a big fan, superhero-themed clothing is a must-bring item alongside swimming suit, waterproof sunscreen, shades, and sportswear.

You also need to find the perfect itinerary and destination that suits your preference and availability. Most of them are Southeast Asia trip, and available up to upcoming Chinese New Year.

What can we do there?

Presented by Sony Pictures, the three mascots of upcoming Spider-verse movie Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and Spider-Gwen will be around to entertain families in their activities. There are physical activities at the Sportsplex, Spider-Man party, Spider-Man Scavenger Hunt, even Spider-Man themed high tea for families.

Regulars include breath-taking acrobatic dance from Sonio at Zodiac Theatre, Mermaid Demonstration and Mermaid Class from Mermaid Kat, and fireworks party in the last night. Fun fact: you might not be getting this fireworks experience at different cruiseline.

Isn’t it going to be boring if I’m not going with kids?

Not really. Booking for Palace Suite for honeymoon or couple trip sounds like a good idea. It includes private facilities like concierge, pool, and Jacuzzi. You can either register for shore excursion or spend a day exploring dozens of dining and bar places inside the ship.

Our personal favorite is the Johnny Walker House, where you can taste the rarest bottles from the whiskey label and experience a whisky crash course from the experts. For European classic ambience with ocean view, go for Seafood Grill & Prime Steakhouse by Mark Best.

While fathers are having fun activities at top deck with the kids, mothers can have some me-time at the Crystal Life Spa. They have Asian and Western treatment to your fancy. At night, the Zouk Night Club and pool bar are ready to serve you with entertaining activities.
