OCEAN DREAM of the PEACE BOAT organisation visits Singapore
The OCEAN DREAM of the PEACE BOAT organisation visited the Keppel bay cruiseterminal in Singapore. Since its first voyage in 1983, Peace Boat has chartered a number of passenger ships to organize our voyages, adapting the onboard spaces to provide a unique and dynamic environment for its participants. Our current ship, the Ocean Dream, was built in 1981 in Denmark, and has excellent facilities providing a unique and dynamic environment for the "floating peace village" that is the Peace Boat experience. Although it may look like a regular cruise from the outside, a Peace Boat voyage is very different from the traditional model, eschewing vacation in favor of participation, and forgoing the usual luxury in favor of a comfortable platform of travel that offers all necessary amenities in a more sustainable way. The array of public spaces on the ship have been adapted to serve as lecture halls, classrooms, offices, workshop rooms and rehearsal areas. Students from the Global University, International Student and Global English and Espanol Training programs use the classrooms, and the ballroom and lounges are ideal venues for presentations and large events, functioning both as lecture halls and stage spaces.Participants also use the various areas around the ship for self-planned events, such as educational presentations, displays of artwork, sports clubs, dance practice or planning campaigns for peace activism or in port activities.
