Five reasons to board the Genting Dream

Sail away on your dream vacation with the first-ever Asian luxury cruise line.

As the pioneers in the Asian cruise industry, Genting Hong Kong is set to introduce a new cruise experience tailored specifically for the Asian market through the launch of their new cruise line – Dream Cruises. The founder of Star Cruises aims to target affluent Asian travellers by offering inspirational luxury, which is Asian at heart and international in spirit. Genting Dream, the first ship of the fleet, will make its debut in Singapore on November 4, 2016 and will offer an exciting itinerary featuring favourite Asian destinations such as Vietnam, China, Hong Kong and India. The inaugural cruise liner of Dream Cruises is currently undergoing fit-out at shipbuilders Meyer Werft in Papenburg, Germany and will boast an exquisite art piece entitled “Voyage of a Lover’s Dream” by Chinese pop artist Jacky Tsai. 

Discovering Asia

Genting Dream will debut her maiden cruise itinerary from her homeport of Guangzhou (Nansha Port) China on November 13 and will offer an itinerary through Vietnam, stopping at scenic sights in Ho Chi Minh City, Nha Trang and Da Nang. You also have a choice of a two-night weekend cruise to the vibrant cosmopolitan city of Hong Kong.

Unparalleled luxury & service

Take your pick from a range of comfortable accommodation options as there are 1,674 staterooms on board and over 70 percent of the staterooms will feature private balconies. Families and larger groups will also enjoy the convenience provided through the 100 connecting rooms. Forming the leading crew-to-guest ratio in Asia-based cruising, Genting Dream aims to provide personalised service to every guest as it will accommodate a lower berth of 3,400 guests, who will be attended by 2,000 crew members. To elevate the experience further, indulge in the exclusive Dream Mansion, which features two floors of lavish suites that come with butler service, discreet facilities such as your own private sundeck and pool and dream beds cloaked in Italian bed linen. It’s extravagance at its best.
