World Dream: Bridge Tour [Exclusive!]

World Dream Super Seacation Cruise To Nowhere

On this cruise to nowhere on board the World Dream, I had the privilege to visit the Bridge where the ship is commanded from, and to meet with the Captain of World Dream.

A staff from the reception escorted my group to the Bridge at the designated time.

Passing through a meeting room and some cabins, here’s the entrance to the Bridge.

Captain Robert Boden welcomes my group to the Bridge before giving a brief explanation of what they do here.

At all times while sailing, the World Dream is commanded with two deck officers and one lookout to spot ships and crafts or foreign items that may not have been picked up by radar.

The ends of the Bridge extends out for the crew to watch the sides of the ship.

There is a duplicate set of controls to use while docking so that the officers can steer the ship from the sides too. The Captain was also happy to entertain any questions we had about the ship.

Some administrative information of the World Dream.

A glass panel below the extended wing allows a clear view for docking.

Definitely a commanding view from the bridge. As it was quite stormy, the front view shots didn’t turn out well, but there was nothing much to see anyway since it’s all sea.

November 2021 Revisit

On my most recent cruise, I had the privilege to go for another bridge tour, this time with Captain Jonny Mehtola.

I used this tour to get more pictures of parts that I missed out on my previous tour.

This time round, there were surprisingly 3 Singaporean crew on the bridge, which I think is quite a rare find when the common nationalities of international bridge crew at first thought are usually northern European.

Looking down at the helipad. This has restricted access at all times, save for a “Spot the Ship” activity on Sunday 4 Day 3 Night cruises.

I was brought to a side table where the navigational charts and weather can be read, including the ship’s path in the South China Sea on this cruise to nowhere.

This time round, I was brought to the starboard side docking console, so I can now say I have walked the whole span of World Dream’s bridge.

Looking down at the starboard side cabins from the bridge.

The bridge has an anti-glare film in front of the windows (and hence you can see the reflection of my camera).

Behind the bridge, there is an emergency command centre with a live view of safety equipment such as watertight doors and fire alarms. This is only manned when there is an emergency.

Thank you Dream Cruises Singapore for this insightful visit to the Bridge!
