Genting Dream Balcony Deluxe Stateroom Review (With Deluxe Shower)
The Balcony Deluxe Stateroom on Resorts World Cruises’ Genting Dream is the highest class of balcony accommodation available on board, but before the Palace suites. For this trip, I had the privilege to try out the Balcony Deluxe Stateroom which includes a deluxe shower.
The corridor along the Genting Dream for the staterooms. Most balcony staterooms are located between Decks 9 to 13.
My room is at 9152.
Insert the stateroom card into the slot by the door to activate the power supply.
Genting Dream Balcony Deluxe Stateroom
The interior of the Balcony Deluxe Stateroom on board Genting Dream. Genting Dream’s Balcony Deluxe Staterooms are at least 22 square meters big laid out elongated from the corridor to the balcony.
The Queen-sized bed in the room is convertible to form a twin bed. This is done by shifting the sofa-size bed towards the bulkhead and changing the side table to be placed between each single bed.
The sofa doubles up as a third single bed for triple-sharing. Some Balcony Deluxe Staterooms also have drop-down Pullman beds for quad-sharing.
The television plays the safety video on repeat when I first walked in to the cabin.
The TV remote is placed by the bed side.
1 UK 3-pin power socket and 2 USB power sockets are available on each side of the Queen-sized bed.
A wardrobe is located on the other size of the Queen-sized bed.
An in-room safe is available inside the wardrobe, along with extra bedding for the sofa bed.
Bathrobes are also placed inside the wardrobe.
Sufficient hangers are available inside the wardrobe for a long cruise.
There is a table across from the sofa where most room amenities are.
A UK 3-pin power socket and a New Zealand 3-flat-pin (in a V-shape and grounding pin) are available on the table.
Coffee and tea making facilities are provided, along with 2 bottles of mineral water. Additional bottles of mineral water are chargeable, but remember that the tap water in the cabin is drinkable, so just refill it from there.
Lists of TV channels, restaurants, and in-room dining are placed on the table.
A minibar is provided below the table.
A seat is also available below the table, along with a rubbish bin and hair dryer.
The balcony consists of two seats with a side table. Smoking is permitted on the balcony, but remember to close the doors.
Note that the cabin air-conditioning automatically switches off when you open the balcony door. You have to switch the aircon back on again after you return to the cabin from the balcony.
Balcony Deluxe Stateroom Toilet and Shower
The attached toilet in the Balcony Deluxe Stateroom is very spacious.
The toilet bowl is placed on the side, offering good space all around.
A double sink is provided in the Balcony Deluxe Stateroom toilet.
Toothbrush kits are provided by default, with additional amenities such as combs, shavers, shower caps, and sewing kits available by calling housekeeping.
Generic 3-in-1 soap and glasses are provided at the side of the double sink.
The deluxe shower provided in the Balcony Deluxe Stateroom is about 2.5 times bigger than the regular Balcony Stateroom.
A deluxe standing shower set is mounted in the Balcony Deluxe Stateroom shower with a bigger shower head from above and 6 nozzles spraying water straight out from the wall. 5 combination of sprays are available.
As I was on board Genting Dream’s first cruise to Phuket under Resorts World Cruises, I was presented with souvenirs from Resorts World Cruises and Tourism Authority of Thailand Singapore Office.
A tote bag, folder, and some information brochures were given by Resorts World Cruises.
A foldable umbrella, foldable tote bag, towel, and luggage tag are given by Tourism Authority of Thailand Singapore Office.
The Balcony Deluxe Stateroom on Genting Dream is sufficiently spacious with fresh air from the sea while sailing to a destination – a refreshing change to the new new normal as compared with my previous cruises in 2021 to nowhere on board World Dream during the COVID-19 pandemic.
