Unique cruise experiences from Singapore

interesting themed cruises singapore

This year’s lineup of exciting themed cruises means that stylishly sailing away into the sunset isn’t merely a clichéd scene from the movies. But cruises aren’t just for retirees – unlike ordinary cruises, where a dip in the pool’s the sole highlight of your day, these cruises are decked out to the nines.

From Powerpuff Girls-themed cabins to a full-on music festival out at sea, these cruises have everything you can’t get on land.

1. Cartoon Network Wave – Powerpuff Girls and We Bare Bears-themed cabins

The age-old dispute between Cartoon Network vs. Disney can finally rest in peace. After all, it’s hard to compete with Cartoon Network when they have their very own themed cruise ship that sets sail from Singapore. With characters that ‘90s kids know and love, Cartoon Network Wave features themed food and accommodation – including a Johnny Bravo burger joint.

Those high on energy can gather at the Toonix Pool or swing by the Rope Adventure Park. With 800 cabins and suites, it’ll be a fairly packed cruise but there’s plenty of leisure rooms for some downtime – kids will thoroughly tire themselves out at the Cartoon Network Playroom.

You’ll be exploring a huge chunk of Asia with this cruise – countries like Thailand, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan.

Prices: from $200/night
Dates: to set sail in late 2018


2. It’s The Ship – dance music festival out at sea

It’s The Ship’s more of a four-day dance music fest than anything, that ends with a massive beach party at Phuket. Last year’s music acts included local DJ Jade Rasif along with international acts like Higher Brothers and Keith Ape.

The ship has its very own Zouk, but there also are a bunch of other facilities – like a waterslide park and pool, as well as a zipline overlooking the sea. For extra entertainment with friends, head straight to the cruise’s 3D movie theatre, rock-climbing wall, and bowling alley.

Prices: from USD648/three-person cabin (~SGD850)

Leaving from Singapore, the cruise will go through Sandakan in Malaysia, and wind through cities like Manila and Ho Chi Minh City before docking at Bangkok for two nights. With special menus that feature the region’s local produce along with insightful cooking demos, not a single stomach will be growling in emptiness here.
