Back for its fifth year, It’s The Ship is a 4-day 3-night vacation party aboard a luxury cruise.

The “Asia’s Largest Party at Sea” will be beginning its voyage from Singapore’s harbour from the 4 to 7 November 2018 with the hottest (pun intended) viral sensation of 2017, Big Shaq, at its helm.

All aboard! We’re about to dive into four essential reasons why you should grab your tickets for the major event now.

1. It’s on a Luxury Cruise Ship

If the term ‘luxury cruise’ isn’t sexy enough on its own, allow me to break it down for you.

The Genting Dream is home to exquisite cabins for travellers to reside, over 70 percent of which offer private balconies with a spectacular view of the ocean.

It also boasts a waterslide park, an entire cinema, 4000sqm of beauty and wellness spas, a glow bowling alley, and the Zouk at Sea club.

Besides a glow bowling alley, the ship provides an endless stream of facilities to keep you entertained.

On top of that, the cruise offers a lavish spread of 35 restaurant and bar concepts for you in case you somehow find you have spare time for a feast on board.

It may be called The Genting Dream but rest assured – it’s all real.

2. It’s Got a Wild Itinerary

I don’t want to be presumptuous, but I’m pretty sure an average week in your life does not involve 4 days and 3 nights of non-stop mingling, 24-hour dining, and themed pop-up parties.

And if it does, it sure doesn’t take place on a ship.

To survive the numerous themed parties and activities, you pretty much have to be a trooper.

The cruise departs on Sunday, the 4th of November at 3pm, after which, travellers are free to do as they please on board The Genting Dream.

The main highlights for the trip include a beach party in Phuket on the 5th, and festivity on board the ship’s famous Oasis on the 6th of November for the finale.

Passengers will be able to sign up for some side activities, which range from yoga sessions to beer pong. Ticket holders also have access to free non-alcoholic drinks, 24-hour dining at selected restaurants, and the ship’s massive catalogue of general facilities.

It’s no doubt a refreshing contrast to daily life, and provides a seamless combination of relaxation and celebration for all.

3. It’s Got an Amazing Line-Up

This year, It’s The Ship has come through with a literal boat-load of international artists.

Besides the ship captain Big Shaq, notable stars include Darude, responsible for the timeless ‘Sandstorm‘, Cash Cash, Vini Vici, Paul Van Dyke and Sander Van Doom.

Cash Cash will be one of the many noteworthy DJs for shipmates to look out for.

The list of talent features a variety of DJs with a wide array of styles and specialisations in the world of dance music.

In addition, the artists roam freely on board the ship amidst all the passengers, making it effortless to meet your favourite performers.

It is a great opportunity for anyone to get an introduction into new genres and vibes that they could, and probably would, fall in love with.

4. It’s Got a Vibrant Community Culture

It’s The Ship’s not-so family-friendly family welcomes you.

Passengers aboard It’s The Ship come from different backgrounds, cultures, and places in the world. It’s a great opportunity to learn first-hand about other ways of life.

Travellers will get limitless chances to make new friends throughout the cruise. Strategically planned activities, facilities, and parties further ease the process. There are few better ways to bond than through a shared experience, albeit one so exclusive.

With an estimated 4,000 passengers on board this year, everyone is bound to make a connection.

The craziest decisions in life are never made by drawing out a detailed pros and cons list; we just go along with the flow of the waves.

It’s a new experience.

It’s a chance to discover yourself.

It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
