Dream Cruises, Asia’s first luxury cruise line will be launching its second ship, the World Dream in November with a host of new features. The ship will have dual homeports in Hong Kong and Guangzhou and move its current ship, the Genting Dream to Singapore.
The World Dream will be sailing to new destinations and the team at Dream Cruises has planned some stunning itineraries. Her inaugural cruises will be a 6-day/5-night cruise to Manila and Boracay in the Philippines from November to March 31, 2018. The ship will be alternating with journeys to Ho Chi Minh and Nha Trang in Vietnam from December to October, 2018.
“We are reinforcing our position in the Pearl River Delta Region by welcoming World Dream to begin her service with dual homeports in Guangzhou (Nansha) and Hong Kong, following in the footsteps of Genting Dream previously,” said Kent Zhu, president of Genting Cruise Lines.
“Designed to cater to the growing Chinese market with tailor made facilities including quad occupancy staterooms to accommodate family travellers, World Dream will further build upon our ongoing commitment to this region which has seen Guangzhou (Nansha) evolve into China’s second busiest port and the strengthening of Hong Kong as a premier fly/cruise hub.”
The Genting Dream will be homeported in Singapore with new itineraries to North Bali and Surabaya in Indonesia as well as Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and Phuket in Thailand.
The ship will have some new additions that include a private food and wine chef’s table that features drops from Penfolds and an upscale steakhouse and a seafood concept with fresh counter display.
The ship will also play host to the Wine and Dine festival at sea which will feature celebrity chefs.
New entertainment includes an outdoor plaza in the pool area as well as the largest indoor reality and game area at sea.
“World Dream is geared to attract more of China and Asia’s affluent travel sector, including the growing meetings and incentive market, by offering unique entertainment, restaurants and first-at-sea activities to enrich our passengers’ experience and to open up a world of endless possibilities for our guests,” said Thatcher Brown, president of Dream Cruises.
