Dream Cruises is the first international cruise company to resume operations with the deployment of Explorer Dream in Taiwan, where she began island-hopping itineraries out of Keelung to Penghu, Matsu, Kinmen and Hualien from 26 July onwards.
Guests on this cruise also saw the debut of the new flexi-feast dining concept which allows unprecedented flexibility for a completely customized dining experience at sea by allowing passengers the freedom to choose from a wider choice of venues and to dine at their leisure.
Flexi-feast will also provide additional peace of mind for guests by helping to ease bottlenecks at certain venues for a more spacious and more comfortable environment on board.
Michael Goh, president of Dream Cruises said, “Gastronomy is an integral part of a memorable voyage. The flexi-feast concept on Explorer Dream will open doors to a new world of customised dining at sea, curated by the preferences and habits of each individual traveller. We are confident that this innovative concept will cater to the expectations of discerning travellers who look for flexibility and autonomy in their dining experiences.”
“As we enter into a post-COVID-19 new norm of cruising, the flexi-feast strategy will also help us provide better social distancing at our dining venues by seating our guests across all our restaurants instead of concentrating on a few inclusive ones,” Goh continued. “We will continue to adhere to our stringent preventive measures on various aspects of the cruise journey, including comprehensive guidelines and protocols on food hygiene practices and standards, to ensure that travellers will be kept safe and reassured on their cruise journey.”
Dream Cruises’ flexi-feast dining concept will be applicable to all sailings of Explorer Dream’s island-hopping itinerary in Taiwan. This innovative concept will allow travellers the flexibility to mix and match different food and beverage options that are available on-board, based on their habits and preferences, for a more comprehensive and personalized dining experience at sea.
Instead of following a rigid schedule of three meals a day, guests now have the option of sleeping in and enjoying a scrumptious brunch at the restaurant of their choice at their leisure or skip dinner to catch the last stage performance of the day, then have a delicious meal by room service, thanks to the flexibility of the Flexi Feast dining vouchers.
As part of the new island-hopping itineraries, Dream Cruises is taking this opportunity to showcase the delicious culinary diversity of Taiwan and giving guests even more variety to whet their appetite.
