About Dream Cruises
Genting HK brings 26 years’ of Asian cruise industry experience in creating its new cruise line – Dream Cruises. Featuring a complete fleet of quality, German built vessels for Asian sourced passengers, Dream Cruises aims to be a pacesetter in the global cruise industry, meeting the needs of the ‘emerging generation’ of confident, independently-minded and upwardly-mobile Asian travellers. Dream Cruises offers inspirational journeys, which are Asian at heart and international in spirit.
Purpose-built for the Asian market, Genting Dream, the first ship of the fleet, debuted in November 2016, with her sister ship World Dream joining in November 2017, offering guests cruising from Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Singapore the highest levels of service, as measured by crew to passenger ratio, and most spacious comfort as measured by gross tons per lower berth. Further expanding the Dream Cruises family, Explorer Dream joined in 2019 with homeports in Shanghai, Dalian and Tianjin during summer and Australia and New Zealand in winter. Construction has also started in Germany on the 208,000 gross ton Global Class ship that will join the fleet in early 2021.
Dream Cruises has been recognized by the Berlitz Cruising and Cruise Guide 2020, ranking Genting Dream and World Dream once again in the world’s top ten Large Resort Ships – the only two highest ships to homeport year-round in Asia. Dream Cruises’ third ship, Explorer Dream, also made her debut in the Berlitz Cruising and Cruise Ships 2020 guide under the “Mid-Sized Ship” category in the Top 20 position.
Dream Cruises was also recently awarded ‘Best Luxury Cruise Line’ at the Annual 30th Travel Trade Gazette’s (TTG) Travel Awards 2019 and ‘Best Cruise Line – Cuisine’, ‘Best Cruise Line – Entertainment’ and ‘Best Cruise Line – Family’ by the Travel Weekly Asia Readers’ Choice Awards 2019.
About Genting Hong Kong Limited (“Genting Hong Kong”)
Genting Hong Kong is a leading corporation principally engaged in the business of cruise and cruise related operations along with leisure, entertainment and hospitality activities.
As a pioneer in the Asian cruise industry, Genting Hong Kong took on the bold initiative to grow the Asia-Pacific as an international cruise destination with the founding of Star Cruises in 1993. In 2015, to further expand its cruise portfolio in the region, Genting Hong Kong launched Dream Cruises to cater to the fastest growing Asian market. The same year, Genting finalized the acquisition of Crystal Cruises to extend Genting Hong Kong’s reach in the global up-scale market. The three cruise brands together are now collectively known as Genting Cruise Lines.
Genting bought three shipyards in Germany in 2016, collectively known as “MV Werften”, to build cruise ships up to 200,000 gross tons for its three cruise brands, following the purchase of Lloyd Werft the previous year which specializes in building Megayachts and other newbuilds.
Initiating the Group’s foray into land-based attractions, Resorts World Manila was the first integrated resort in the Philippines when it opened in 2009. A one-stop, non-stop entertainment and leisure destination, Resorts World Manila features world-class entertainment, unique events, and exciting lifestyle options throughout its extensive premises. Genting Hong Kong’s investment in iconic Singapore nightlife brand Zouk – a world-class entertainment institution and trendsetter in Asia’s dance music scene, and perennial top-ten fixture in the annual DJ Mag Top 100 Clubs global poll - further diversifies the company’s appeal to a younger and more dynamic clientele.
