Are your travel senses desperately tingling? Bored of being stuck in one place and feel the need to really get away? Try going on a cruise around Singapore where you can experience something out of the ordinary, all without having to leave the country!
Whether you’re looking to spend four nights at sea, or four hours leisurely cruising along the waters, these cruises will satiate your travel cravings – at least for the time being.
1. Transport yourself to another country: Dream Cruises
If you’re not able to travel, how does a themed staycation cruise sound? Dream Cruises offers themed cruises that’ll make you feel like you’re in another country, without leaving the waters of Singapore.
Enjoy feeling like you’re back in Thailand with their Thai-themed cruise running from 31st March to 27th May 2021. They previously had a Korea-themed cruise too, so make sure to check out their website for updated themed cruises.
With the theme changing every few months, this international cruise liner now offers guests a one-of-a-kind themed experience from the activities to the food!
2. The complete cruise package, and then some: Quantum of the Seas, Royal Caribbean
If you’re looking for a mini getaway, or hunting down a cruise ship that offers you all the bells and whistles, do take advantage of the Royal Caribbean’s exclusive staycation deals. It’s not just the comforts that make this cruise extraordinary, there are extra features you won’t find on most ships.
Take the North Star as an example, this glass capsule rises 300 feet above the ocean and allows guests to take in panoramic sea views. Not to mention there’s a FlowRider onboard, as well as RipCord by iFly’s skydiving experience.
3. Aye Aye, captain! All aboard the pirate ship!: Royal Albatross
Pretend like you’re Johnny or Orlando and recreate your very own Pirates of the Caribbean scene…No seriously…I mean, this is a pirate ship after all…
Different experiences await you on this massive ship. Guests can choose the type of cruise you’d prefer, from a breakfast cruise or sunset dinner cruise, to mast climbs for any budding sailors (which are supervised).
They also offer on-board tours of the ship and the chance to meet the Captain!
4. Enjoy a day out at sea with all the comforts: Mikanna -Yacht Escape
Offering both a half-day or full-day tour, spend the day on the ocean in this 16-metre long luxury catamaran. You’ll probably want to opt for the full-day tour when you hear this.
The setup comes fully equipped with a cocktail bar, and both indoor and outdoor dining options, as well as four suites inside, including bathroom and shower facilities.
PS: If you’re looking for something extra special, book their Movie Night Charter.
5. Nothing beats fishing out in the deep blue: Yacht Charter with BBQ, Wanderlust Adventures
Looking for something different to do out at sea? Catch a cruise with these maritime specialists. These cruises are fishing expeditions and they’ll provide all the equipment onboard (plus, you get to eat what you catch).
After a few hours of reeling, enjoy an on-board BBQ, all seafood provided, adding to the adventure.
6. Plan your personalised itinerary to suit your preferences: 2D1N Charter, Infinity Sails
Desperate to escape the city hustle and bustle? What better way to relax, unwind and enjoy something out of the ordinary than a two-day cruise on a luxurious catamaran?
This is an ideal option for a group of friends or family. Everything you’ll need for a day of fun on the waters is provided, including a flying unicorn float, SUP (stand up paddle) boards, a kayak and BBQ facilities for a perfect evening under the stars.
If you don’t have the time for an overnight stay, they also offer day time and sunset cruises.
7. Enjoy nothing but the royal treatment: The Admiral
Who said you needed to book a four-day cruise to experience the joys of life onboard a ship? Providing day tours, float around the city on the seas in true style on this fancy yacht.
You’ll find three cabins and two bathrooms onboard, and the yacht can hold up to 24 guests. They’ve also installed a karaoke system – in case you like to party – as well as two floating mats, kayaks and a BBQ setup.
If you wish to extend your tour hours, you can contact them directly to organise.
8. Explore the historical Southern Islands in style: Yacht Cruise SG
Specialising in tours to the Southern Islands of Singapore, what better way to spend the day on water than in total style?
Choose from 11 cruises to different locations, from Pulau Hantu to Kusu Island, and spend a couple of hours out at sea. (Pulau Hantu is great for snorkelling and scuba diving!)
