Genting Targets Asian Premium Market With New Dream Cruises Brand

Genting Hong Kong has signaled its intention to compete in Asia’s premium cruise market with the launch of Dream Cruises. Unveiled today onboard the SuperStar Virgo to a select group of 1,000 guests from the media and travel industry, the new brand comes just months after the company’s acquisition of luxury line Crystal Cruises and will deploy the 2 newbuilds currently being constructed in Germany.

 

Genting Dream and World Dream

Dream Cruises will debut the Genting Dream in November 2016, while sister ship World Dream will join the fleet a year later in November 2017.

 

Weighing in at 150,000-GRT, both vessels will carry 3,400 guests at double occupancy, making it one of the most spacious at-sea with a guest-space ratio of 45 tonnes per guest. Accommodation options will reflect both size and choice for guests, with 70 percent of staterooms offering private balconies and over 100 connecting staterooms for larger family groups. In addition, the ships will have 142 Dream Suites ranging from 32 to 183 square meters, featuring European-style butler service and other exclusive privileges.

 

35 onboard restaurants and bars place a culinary emphasis on Asia, offering dining experiences from all the regional cuisines of China as well international favorites such as Japanese, South East Asian, Italian and more. Entertainment and recreation facilities will include the main Zodiac Theatre, the world’s first Zouk club at-sea, a bowling alley and an array of outdoor adventures, while guests in search of relaxation and rejuvenation can indulge in treatments and therapies at the Aeris Spa, The Gentlemen’s Barber and more.

 

Short Cruises from 3 Chinese Homeports

Dream Cruises will homeport Genting Dream in Guangzhou (Nansha Port), Hong Kong and Sanya for her inaugural season. Out of Guangzhou, she will offer a year-round, 2-night weekend cruise calling at Hong Kong and a 5-night itinerary visiting Halong Bay, Danang and Sanya. The ship will operate 7-night cruises out of Hong Kong and Sanya, calling at Guangzhou, Halong Bay, Danang, Sanya and either Shenzhen or Zhuhai.

 

The launch of Dream Cruises completes Genting Hong Kong’s brand portfolio for each of the 3 major cruise market segments, joining its Crystal Cruises luxury brand and the long-running Star Cruises brand in the contemporary segment.
