World Cruises’ World Dream Transforms Into Alice’s Christmas Wonderland



Lovers of Lewis Carroll’s literary classics “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” and “Through the Looking Glass” could find no better way to celebrate the 2019 holiday season than hopping aboard the Dream Cruises’ 150,000-ton megaship, World Dream, which will transform into the scene of Wonderland itself from November 15, 2019, through January 16, 2020.

For the most magical Christmas season at sea, guests will be immersed in the whimsical fantasy world of the famous White Rabbit, Mad Hatter and the Queen of Hearts and her subjects.

Passengers can follow the White Rabbit, as he appears at various Insta-worthy checkpoints throughout the vessel, or take a cup of tea at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, where a full spread of delicate macarons, cupcakes and steaming beverages awaits.

Setting the party into full swing will be a series of themed activities, including a giant card game, musical chairs and a tea-cup relay race. Children are also invited to dress up as their favorite Wonderland characters during role-playing storytelling sessions with Alice herself, designed exclusively for kids, and attend Alice’s Parade, where all of the classic tales’ iconic characters will make appearances.

Aboard the World Dream, families can delight in a stress-free holiday feast, where the perfect Christmas menu is made ready and prepared traditionally for everyone’s enjoyment, serving favorites like roasted turkey with all the trimmings, gingerbread and Yule-log cake; plus, contemporary dishes like surf and turf with premium lobster, wagyu prime rib and striploin; as well as Asian classics, such as Chinese-style double-boiled chicken soup with abalone and Japanese seafood dishes.

A spectacular, brand-new signature show also premieres aboard the World Dream this season, entitled Verry Christmas, in which Christmas angels guide audiences on an imaginative voyage filled with magical creatures and a festive spirit.

Romantic, classical ballet performers, world-class acrobatics and breathtaking aerialists are accompanied with specially choreographed LED-lighting effects, and the cast is even available for photo sessions and meet-and-greets after each performance.

And, available exclusively aboard the Christmas-theme cruises, the ballerinas of Verry Christmas will host the first-ever yoga-inspired ballet fitness classes at sea, teaching guests how to improve their posture and flexibility, and use fluid, graceful ballet techniques to achieve new levels of relaxation.

Customers can enjoy a special, buy-one-get-one-free offer on designated sailings—including select “Alice’s Christmas Wonderland” theme cruises aboard World Dream—they book now through November 18, 2019, as part of Dream Cruises’ third-anniversary celebration.

Christopher Prelog, vice president of fleet operations at Windstar and former vice president at Seabourn Cruise Line, will assume the role as chief operating officer of Windstar Cruises.

In addition, Betsy O’Rourke, chief marketing officer for Xanterra and the former senior vice president of marketing at Royal Caribbean, will lend her expertise to the Windstar brand.

This is a time of growth and expansion for the small-ship line. Its $250 Million Star Plus Initiative will lengthen three of Windstar’s yacht-like motor ships so new suites, dining venues and public spaces can be added. The first of the stretched ships, Star Breeze, is slated to return to service in May 2020.
