Glamping Must-Haves for the Luxury Travellers

top vacation ideas glamping camping tents
If your idea of roughing it is staying in a luxury treetop cabin with all the comforts of home, finding the perfect glamping destination isn’t enough. You also need to travel there in style and have a few items at the ready. Glamping has gone mainstream, but that doesn’t mean that even the most sought-after spots have everything a luxe getaway needs. If you really want to make the most of your glamping experience, you have to have:

1. The perfect way to get there. Glamping starts in a powerful luxury vehicle, whether it’s a new or a used car. When you’re not having to take on dirt trails, an SUV isn’t always necessary. Imagine how classy you’d look to roll up at your glamping site with a legendary used Mercedes. Glamping destinations are friendly to all types of luxury vehicles. Whether you’re renting or in the market to upgrade your overall lifestyle (not just your camping), glamping demands the right vehicle.

Cartoon Network-Branded Cruise Ship to Set Sail in Late 2018

singapore cruise centre cartoon network cruise ship promo
Set to make its maiden voyage from its home port of Singapore in late 2018, the 11 guest-deck, 2,000-guest Cartoon Network Wave will be one vast haven for Toon-loving travellers. With the ocean as a backdrop, families will enjoy the world's first immersive Toon vacation at sea, and an adventure with their favourite Cartoon Network stars.

While there are many existing projects by Turner's location-based entertainment team including Cartoon Network-branded restaurants, theme parks, waterparks around the world -- and even planes and trains -- this is the first time anywhere that a cruise liner has undergone a full Cartoon Network transformation.

The theming and entire onboard experience of Cartoon Network Wave is inspired by Cartoon Network's universe of well-loved characters from iconic shows such as Adventure Time, Ben 10, The Powerpuff Girls and We Bare Bears. This includes a variety of diverse entertainment, activity and recreation features, as well as retail and food and beverage options.

Cartoon Network Wave will be docked at the Singapore Cruise Centre and will sail to 13 popular destinations in the Asia Pacific region including Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Australia and Japan. Dates and itineraries for its routes around Asia Pacific will be announced in the coming months.

Bringing to life the world's first Cartoon-Network themed cruise Oceanic Group formalised its partnership with Turner in a signing ceremony in Singapore, marking the official launch of Cartoon Network Wave, the world's first Cartoon Network-themed cruise and Singapore's first homegrown contemporary cruise product.

Oceanic Group's Chief Executive Mr Daniel Chui said the partnership represents the company's commitment to capitalise on Asia's growing cruise travel market. "A homegrown cruise project, Cartoon Network Wave heralds the start of a new vacation experience for cruise-goers in Asia where cruise travel meets personalised journeys through experiential story-telling. With Singapore's position as a cruise hub in Asia, we believe it is only fitting that we dive right in and ride the surging tide of this passenger cruise wave."

"Cartoon Network Wave will revolutionise cruise travel in the Asia-Pacific region and create and curate new cruise experiences for holiday makers, cruise goers and generations of pop culture fans," added Mr Chui.

"Turner is always looking at new ways to bring our characters to life -- and Cartoon Network Wave will be their home on the high seas. The ship has remarkable potential to offer our existing fans a truly unique immersive experience, as well as create new ones. We couldn't be more excited by the partnership with Oceanic Group in jointly creating a world first," said Mr Ricky Ow, President of Turner Asia Pacific.

"The debut of Cartoon Network Wave as a new homegrown cruise product is testament to the vitality of Singapore as Southeast Asia's leading cruise hub. It will also augment Singapore's appeal as a top family destination by adding to the diversity of Singapore's line-up of offerings. We look forward to more family visitors coming from the region with Cartoon Network Wave's exciting deployment here," said Mr Yap Chin Siang, Assistant Chief Executive (Policy and Planning Group), Singapore Tourism Board.

Online Bookings
Online bookings for Cartoon Network Wave will start later in the year. More details on the booking dates and itineraries will be released at Cartoon Network Wave. Fans can also subscribe to Cartoon Network Wave's soon-to-be launched Facebook and Instagram for the latest updates.
