Ahoy shipmates! The festival which prides itself on being able to provide no two shipmates with the same experience — It’s The Ship — is back for its fifth instalment and we honestly can’t wait to hop on board. 🐣

From 4th November 2018, the Genting Dream luxury cruise liner will depart from Singapore, journeying to the tropical island of Phuket where shipmates will be able to relax on the beach with a massage, before docking back in Singapore on 7th November. Excited? Here are five reasons why you shouldn’t miss out on It’s The Ship 2018:

1. Secret parties, themed costume parties & one-of-a-kind private shows

Party on top of more parties? Yes, please! From what we’ve read so far, it’s safe to conclude that It’s The Ship is officially the best type of vacation you’ll ever need, although it would probably require more energy than any usual parties. Don’t worry, you can sleep whenever (or wherever) you drop.

2. Top notch spa services

Luxurious comforts range from the immaculate cabins to spa activities and top notch service all in the confines of a four-day, three-night festival. If you’re tired from all the partying, take some time to pamper yourself at the most comprehensive beauty and wellness centre which encompasses western, asian and medical spa.

3. Gala night & lavish dining options

Imagine you could visit a different country for every meal of the day. What would you do? Where would your taste buds take you? Fortunately, you don’t need to travel far to experience the best Asian and international flavours from 5-star restaurants on the cruise liner.

What’s more, a staple of the festival is the much awaited Gala Night where shipmates come dressed to the nines to enjoy a swanky themed evening together.

4. Sports & recreations

Not forgetting the fitness enthusiasts, the festival also includes a range of healthy activities such as morning yoga sessions, 3-on-3 basketball, and soccer. Shipmates can also enjoy a wide range of recreational options including a variety of pools with six water slides, ping pong tables, a mini golf course, and rock climbing wall.

5. The best music lineup

Since 2014, It’s The Ship has featured a multitude of international artists including Yellow Claw, David Hasselhoff, Higher Brothers, Carnage, Knife Party and more. The festival is a chance for revellers to meet other music fans who have traveled far and wide as well as providing them opportunities to enjoy close encounters with your favourite artists onboard.

Secure your cabins at a special early bird price from as low as USD 398 (RM1580) via Galactix Asia, and follow the festival on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to keep up with all announcements regarding this year’s lineup.

Tickets include complimentary 24-hour dining, selected non-alcoholic beverages and free usage of most of the ship’s facilities. See you there!
