Have you been dreaming of life in the lap of luxury? Authentic, high-end Asian hospitality meets unbeatable international experiences aboard the Dream Cruises ships.

For your next holiday, glide across the ocean aboard the Genting Dream or World Dream cruise ships. You'll enjoy the best Asian port cities on offer, high-class service and incomparable amenities. Here are just five of the many ways Dream Cruises can turn your fantasies into reality.

1. Genuine luxury accommodation

There's no disputing the quality of accommodation on The Genting Dream and World Dream.

Both cruise ships are equipped with a unique ship-within-a-ship accommodation deck known as the Palace. This exclusive enclave is home to Villas, Penthouses and Suites each offering characteristic indulgence.

The Palace Villas are unmatched in terms of extravagance at 224 square metres each. These duplex suites include one King bedroom, one Queen bedroom and a double sofa bed, allowing for up to six guests. A large private balcony, complete with whirlpool hot tub, and separate living and dining areas means there's plenty of room to spread out and unwind. The included grand piano, sauna, automatic coffee machine, spacious bathroom and original artworks define the Villas' sense of opulence.

All guests of the Palace will enjoy dedicated service from a team of European-style butlers. Per your requests, a Palace Butler will press your clothing, shine your shoes, arrange on-board bookings and serve meals and cocktails in your suite.

2. Active recreational facilities

Your holiday doesn't have to be all about lounging in the sun (unless that's your thing) – there are plenty of ways get your adrenaline pumping aboard the Dream Cruises ships.

Break a sweat with any sport of your liking at the rooftop SportsPlex facility, which features an enclosed astro-turf court. Or for something a little more adventurous, try out anything from the on-deck Waterslide Park to the daring Ropes Course – including a 35-metre zip line 18 decks above the sea. The whole family can stay entertained while rock-climbing, playing mini-golf or tackling the video games arcade.

Most of these facilities are included in your cruise package, so you don't have to stress about budget while you're on board.

3. Non-stop entertainment

You'll never run out of things to do or see aboard either Dream Cruises ship.

The Zodiac Theatre 

With 999 seats, the Zodiac Theatre is host to a number of live shows unique to Dream Cruises. Aboard the Genting Dream, explore passion and love through the Voyage of a Lover's Dream stage performance, followed by the live Latin ballroom show, Rhythm Divine. On the World Dream, performers of all kinds come together to showcase an explosion of senses known as Sonio.

Zouk Night Club and Bowling 

Zouk is where the Genting Dream comes to life at night. Put on your bowling shoes, grab a drink from the bar and climb the ten-pin bowling leaderboard. Once you're all bowled out, shake what your mama gave you to live music and DJ sets.

ESC Experience Lab

The World Dream trades in a trendy nightlife for a futuristic alternative. Step into somebody else's shoes in the ESC Experience Lab, where a huge variety of virtual reality games will keep you entertained for hours. Compete against your friends or other guests in the e-Sports zone or design your own theme park experience on the Finger Coaster.

Zouk Beach Club

Outdoor movies are cool – but they're even better on the ocean. The Zouk Beach Club, on both ships, kicks off weekday evenings with high-definition blockbuster movies that you can watch from cabana seating or the deckside pool.

4. Pamper yourself

After a day of pumping music and dance moves to put Kevin Bacon to shame, unwind in any of the onboard spas and wellness retreats. Both ships are equipped with a Western style beauty spa, featuring a wide array of treatments from Swedish massage, to scrubs, wraps and facials. With VIP couples suites, you can turn your pampering into a special bonding experience with your special someone.

In the Crystal Life Asian Spa, you'll lounge in an oversized throne, enjoy fresh fruit and personalised entertainment on an iPad while your beauty therapist applies traditional Chinese foot reflexology. You might also enjoy the relieving sensations of acupuncture, or sweat out your troubles in the Thermal Lounge and vitality pools.

5. Dine like royalty

The Dream Cruises ships are both equipped with close to 20 restaurants, so there'll always be something new for you to try. Dine upon traditional and modern takes on cuisine from all across Asia and dabble in a variety of spirits at Bar City.

If you're feeling homesick on the Genting Dream, you don't have to go far to find modern Australian fare and incomparable wine pairings at the Bistro by Mark Best.

6. Fly direct

Hopping aboard the Genting Dream is now easier than ever. Singapore Airlines, world leaders in exquisite international air hospitality, now runs direct flights from Canberra to Singapore – cutting your air time down to just eight hours.
