Cartoon Network Cruise Ship - Sailing From Singapore In Late 2018

From reel life to real life, luxury cruise operator Oceanic Group partners Turner
for the definitive Cartoon Network experience -
bringing iconic characters from The Powerpuff Girls to We Bare Bears to life on the high seas.

For the first time, some of the world’s most famous cartoon characters will set sail on their very own cruise liner. This fully-branded ship is the result of a partnership between Oceanic Group, Asia-Pacific's leading cruise management company, and Turner, the global media giant behind Cartoon Network.

The two charismatic business leaders - Daniel Chui, CE, Oceanic Group and Ricky Ow, President, Turner Asia Pacific, elaborate on their philosophies behind the novel partnership...

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. This is the first time anywhere that a cruise liner has undergone a full Cartoon Network transformation. 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.

And the partnership is launched!

The novel thematic 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.

Cosy Cartoon Network-themed furnishings abound -
Triplex Lounge and Kids Room...

Enjoy the sea breeze at Toonix & the outdoor Rope Adventure Park...

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. Online bookings for Cartoon Network Wave will start later in the year. More details on the booking dates and itineraries will be released on the Cartoon Network Wave website.
