The first Asian luxury cruise, Genting Dream, promises to pamper not only adults, but children as well. At the Little Pandas kids’ club (pictured above), a team of trained childcare professionals are there to engage young guests aged two to 12, while parents enjoy their couple time. 

You can also bond with your troop over a game of mini-golf overlooking the ocean or hit the pools. There are six water slides ranging from gentle for the little ones, to wilder ones (pictured left) for thrill-seekers. 

Prices start from $430 per person for a two-night stay in a basic stateroom. To find out more, visit http://www.dreamcruiseline.com

Download the free Youtube Kids app to have better control of what your kids are watching on the popular video-sharing platform Youtube. There are settings that allow you to take charge of how broadly you want to expose them to the content. 

The app is designed with larger images and bold icons for easy navigation, and there is also a voice search function that enables little ones who are unable to spell or type, to search for videos more efficiently. The app is available on Google Play and the App Store. Find out more at https://www.kids.youtube.com

Take a trip to space with your family. The NASA – A Human Adventure exhibition displays over 200 artefacts, including actual space-flown items and full-scale replicas. There is also a G-Force Astronaut Trainer ride where visitors, who meet a minimum height of 1.2m, get an adrenaline- pumping experience of how a simulated flight feels like. 

The exhibition is held at the Artscience Museum until March 19. Tickets are priced from $15 per adult, and $9 per child aged two to 12. Family packages are available. Tickets for the G-force stimulator are purchased separately, from $6. Find out more at http://www.marinabaysands.com/ArtScienceMuseum
