While Singapore borders remain largely closed, Dream Cruises is bringing a series of globe-trotting themes on board World Dream to entice local residents to sail with the cruise line.

First up is World Dream's ‘Rhythm of Korea’ sailings, taking place from 21 February to 31 March. During this period, cruise passengers can expect screenings of some of South Korea's iconic blockbuster movies at the Cinema at Sea, sign up for the various beauty talks and hairstyling workshops, as well as Hallyu K-Pop dance classes. There are also basic conversational classes for those who wish to pick up the language while at sea.

Meanwhile, Travel Weekly Asia got an inside look of the Hallyu-wave preview on board World Dream last week. More pictures below:
