A look at Genting Dream’s food offerings onboard

Being one of the most popular cruises in Asia, Resorts World Cruises was officially launched in June 2022 with the theme ‘A Resort Cruising At Sea’. Genting Dream, the flagship cruise of Resorts World Cruises has over 35 restaurants and bars spread across 18 decks of the ship. For Indian travellers, it’s a perfect cruise offering a mix of Indian cuisine with international flavours and options.

Genting Dream is not the first cruise ship to serve halal food, but it’s the first with an internationally halal-certified kitchen with an OIC/SMIIC standard halal-friendly certificate. This is based on OIC (Organisation of Islamic Cooperation) and SMIIC (The Standards and Metrology Institute for Islamic Countries) standards. The cruise also holds a vegetarian certification by Global Vegetarian Certification Services. The Lido which is the free-buffet restaurant on the ship provides an extensive range of international cuisines including vegetarian and Jain food options. For instance, The Dream Dining Room(upper) is dedicated to serving Chinese set meals, whereas the Dream Dining (lower) serves semi-buffet western meals.

We even went behind the scenes and discovered that there are dedicated timings and lifts to deliver the food. From the way the food is prepared and delivered, to the way utensils are washed after — everything is segregated so there is no chance of cross-contamination at all. So, Jain travellers can cruise and eat with peace of mind onboard Genting Dream.

If you are not convinced, we take you on a virtual tour of this ship by Chef Reinhard Mammes, Executive Chef, Genting Dream.

Food onboard a cruise ship

Cruise guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks for free on a cruise. This includes access to all complimentary food venues onboard. Main dining restaurants feature versatile menus that cater to a variety of tastes and dietary preferences, which comes included in your cruise fare.

Genting Dream also has exclusive dining venues, only accessible to passengers in Dream Palace suites. Food can also be delivered to your cabin 24/7 if you are staying at a Palace suite. For balcony and interior cabins, it comes at an additional cost.

You can bring your own food onboard — including snack food you like to have on hand and items you pick up in port. You can’t bring raw meat onboard, but pretty much anything else is fair game. However, there’s so much food onboard that, unless you’re very picky or have a dietary restriction, there’s not much need to bring your own food. Moreover, Genting Dream restaurants pretty much always have vegetarian options; low-salt, low-carb, gluten-free and vegan food is either available and noted or can be prepared with advance notice.
