Here’s why a seacation is just as good or even better than a staycation

Feel like you’re overseas, quite literally.

Staycations are great because they let you unwind and relax. But pull the curtains open and you’re met yet again with the lull of Singapore traffic or our all too familiar buildings.

Don’t you wish you could just take a break from it all and really escape just for a few days? Well, since travelling abroad is out of the question right now, a seacation might just scratch that itch. 

Here are some reasons why a seacation is just as good, if not better, than a staycation.

1. Feel like you’re ‘overseas’

Imagine pulling open the curtains to be greeted by fresh air and a vast expanse of sea. 

Yes, there’ll be no corporate building in sight to give you PTSD of that nine to five, giving you plenty of time to rest and recuperate.

Best of all, be lulled to sleep by the soothing sound of the currents and waves, quite literally making you feel like you’re ‘overseas’. 

2. Food, food and more food

While most staycations offer free breakfast, the cruise fare for seacations include breakfast, lunch and dinner at selected restaurants on board.

For instance, Dream Cruises’ cruise fare includes daily meals at Dream Dining Room and The Lido on board World Dream.

You can also opt to dine at any of the other restaurants on the cruise at an additional price.

3. Entertainment and attractions at your doorstep

Ever booked a staycation and felt unsure of how to spend your time besides taking a dip in the hotel pool?

You won’t have that problem at a seacation, where cruises are jam packed with activities and attractions like a waterslide park, mini-golf area, an arcade, and even a beach club.

The best part? You won’t have to travel far because they’re right at your doorstep, helping you maximise your time on board.

Dream Cruises’ World Dream

Dream Cruises’ World Dream offers just that and more with a plethora of exciting entertainment and amenities that’ll keep you occupied for hours on end.

Here are just some of the amenities and attractions you’ll find on board:
