Enjoy a monster vacation this summer while out to sea with Dream Cruises. In a timely partnership with Sony Pictures, Dream Cruises offers summer excursions and unique itineraries featuring Hotel Transylvania 3 characters and a fun spooky theme, perfect for kids.


Offered on both World Dream and Genting Dream, guests set sail everywhere from Thailand and Malaysia, or Vietnam, Cambodia, Japan and Indonesia — all while joining their favorite monster characters.


Explore the ship with the kids and enjoy costume parties and monster-themed fun including a Hotel Transylvania movie marathon. Get in shape with the monster family crew with monster-in-training boot camp (seems like a missed opportunity for boo camp, but I digress) activities, including a ride on the Dracula zipline, a blobby milkshake drinking contest, the meet and greet with Hotel Transylvania 3 characters (while they too are on vacation on the cruise ship!), a mummy look-alike dress up competition, best-dressed monster-themed costume party, monster treasure hunt, art show and face painting, DJ Zouk pool party and, top it all off, with Bedtime Stories with Drac.


The kids will love the immersive experience and escape into their own reality while you enjoy some time to relax, hit the pool, spa and various restaurants.


With the new film following the monster characters taking a family vacation, you and the kids can play along and vacation together on Dream Cruises. In theaters July 13, watch the third installment of the film franchise and get ready for your own family vacation, including your own little monsters.


With both Genting Dream and World Dream offering sailings through August 2018, guests can enjoy two- to five-night excursions through some of the most sought-after destinations in Asia.


Depending on the specific destination and time of year in mind, prices range so read more about specific booking information and plan your family getaway right alongside the kid’s favorite spooky characters. Sit back, relax and enjoy a family-friendly summer cruise specifically designed for kids in bucket-list destinations.
