Dream Cruises enhances The Palace
Dream Cruises has announced a collection of new benefits and services to enhance the travelling experience of guests in its exclusive enclave, ‘The Palace’.
“Sophisticated guests desire the excitement and energy of a large megaship but also demand the privacy and intimacy of their own exclusive facilities and Dream Cruises’ response was the creation of ‘The Palace’, the perfect solution featuring a “Luxury ship within a Megaship” concept across our fleet” said Mr. Thatcher Brown, President of Dream Cruises. “Combined with the confidence and elegance of international hospitality standards, ‘The Palace’ will provide a luxury vacation experience unlike any other.”
