Here’s your chance to get a sneak peek and personally experience what street art, style and culture is all about – all while cruising at sea to exotic destinations.

“Kicks and Beats will be our latest thematic cruise on Genting Dream that introduces a unique and immersive experience, which will further enhance and elevate the vacation experience of our guests at sea. Street culture is a colourful and interesting form of expression that resonates across different age groups; and we are delighted to showcase the different facets of this truly unique culture, which will be fun and interactive with invited homegrown talents from Singapore and Malaysia,” said Michael Goh, President of Resorts World Cruises.

Join us on the Genting Dream and find out what it means to be a sneakerhead, as we introduce to you all things-sneakers-related. The specially created Sneaker Street at sea on Genting Dream features a series of amazing graffiti art, including a giant sneaker painting by Singapore’s Yen from HTFU and Jeranne from ABSNC, as well as limited edition and vintage sneaker collections on display. Vacationers on board will also have the chance to own a variety of sneaker collection, including limited edition sneakers from top international brands that will be available for sale to satisfy your personal sneaker additions.

Besides that, guests can also take part in many fun-filled activities and workshops related to street culture and arts. These include customizing and painting your kicks with Louis Ong, a renowned artist from Malaysia. Your kicks customization does not end with painting of your sneakers, as we’ll also teach you to master the different and cool techniques to do your kicks’ lacing.

From kicks, you’ll discover more street culture that include explosive street dance and hip hop performances from amazing talents that will Wow you all the way while at sea. But don’t just be a spectator, as we have workshops for you to pick up and learn new dancing hip hop skills.

And if dancing is not your thing, you can be inspired by the LIVE mural and graffiti paintings from various Singaporean and Malaysian artists such as Newba, Araikreva, EBAO and Aizen.
