Dream Cruises Free Shuttle Bus Service: Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore to HarbourFront Centre / Singapore Cruise Centre

World Dream Super Seacation Cruise To Nowhere

Dream Cruises offers a free shuttle bus service from Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore to HarbourFront Centre and Singapore Cruise Centre for passengers on board World Dream. For arriving passengers, the free shuttle bus to HarbourFront Centre operates during disembarkation times, and for departing passengers with early COVID-19 Antigen Rapid Test (ART) timings, this is a return shuttle bus to and from to HarbourFront Centre to while away the time between the swab test and check-in.

Upon my return from the cruise to nowhere on board World Dream, I spotted the shuttle bus waiting at the coach stand opposite the bus stop where SBS Transit Bus Service 400 was going to depart from. I enquired about the bus service with the staff, and with the departure to HarbourFront Centre in 2 minutes, I hopped on board to get moving out of Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore and not wait any longer for the low-frequency SBS Transit Bus Service 400.

Dream Cruises Free Shuttle Bus Service from Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore

The Dream Cruises Free Shuttle Bus Service from Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore to HarbourFront Centre departs from Coach Bay C12. There is a banner in front of Coach Bay C12 about this free shuttle bus service.

Aside from this banner, and WTS staff at the bus bay, the free shuttle bus service to HarbourFront Centre is not widely promoted.

The Dream Cruises Free Shuttle Bus Service is operated by WTS Travel & Tours Pte Ltd.

Departing from Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore.

The interior of the WTS Travel Yutong ZK6122HE9 Auto Bus.

This bus, PC3596Y, has a full Desaru Coast Malaysia exterior advertisement and is SPAD-registered. It’s likely that this bus was used for Singapore to Desaru Coast bus services before COVID-19, or was meant for Singapore to Desaru Coast bus services which is not happening now.

The seats have a reasonable amount of legroom with good recline, which will be too good if the bus is full resulting in a very uncomfortable and/or angry seat neighbor behind you. This picture shows the upright state of seats before any recline.

Goodbye World Dream.

Arriving at HarbourFront Centre / Singapore Cruise Centre

Approaching a different cruise centre which the World Dream won’t fit into.

The journey from Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore to HarbourFront Centre takes only 11 minutes.

The Dream Cruises Free Shuttle Bus Service drops off and picks up at the Singapore Cruise Centre or SCC@HarbourFront coach stand on Level 1. This is the same place where Aeroline buses depart for Corus Hotel Kuala Lumpur in good times.

As I am an arriving World Dream cruise passenger, the friendly bus driver simply waved goodbye as he reversed back out to return back to Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore.

If you are a departing World Dream cruise passenger with an early swab test timing, do check with the driver on the return timings you can catch the bus back to Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore for your check-in.

Heading into Singapore Cruise Centre.

The doorway leads to the Singapore Cruise Centre arrival hall where passengers from ferries from Batam and Tanjung Balai Karimun, and mid-sized and smaller cruise ships use during good times. Strange feeling to be here barely 20 minutes after clearing Singapore immigration and customs through Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore.

Conclusion

For arriving World Dream cruise passengers, this Dream Cruises Free Shuttle Bus Service from Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore to HarbourFront Centre is a convenient and free mode of transport if:

  • the waiting time for SBS Transit Bus Service 400 is too long and you just want to get out of the terminal without the long 10-minute walk to Marina South Pier MRT Station
  • if you are going west of Singapore
  • if taking the North East Line (NEL)
  • or are somehow hungry after the cruise to nowhere (what did you even do during your cruise?) and want to find something to eat

Of all the points I mentioned, not waiting for SBS Transit Bus Service 400 is the most useful factor to me.

I wish there could be a new bus service 400A like in the best Marina Gardens time after a good barbeque, bowling session, or fireworks show where 400A would operate frequently to cater to the big crowds, operating between Marina Bay MRT Station and looping around Marina Gardens only, but in this new case, pairing it with cruise timings of World Dream and Quantum of the Seas arrivals and departures so that passengers won’t be left hanging in Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore.

While currently stuck with low-frequency public transport from Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore, Dream Cruises saves the day for now with their free shuttle bus service from Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore to HarbourFront Centre.
