Apart from being home to Universal Studios and breathtaking beaches, Singapore is also host to some of the world’s largest cruises.

Cruises are a whole different world themselves; floating you away from worldly affairs while granting you the finest pleasures.

Going on a cruise will sap away the accumulated stresses of daily life, and there’s something for everyone—from adults to children—to enjoy, with minimal planning required.

While the children busy themselves with the unending string of activities lined up for them on the cruise, the parents can take to the casino for a game of chance over the finest single malt scotch.

We’ll walk you through 6 of the best cruise ships in Singapore and what they have to offer.
