Both companies were contracted by MV Werften, the Germany-based shipyard owned by Dream Cruises’ parent company, Genting Hong Kong. The contract was signed following their successful collaboration on the first Global Class ship, which is currently under construction at MV Werften.
“We are very happy that MV Werften continues to trust in our expertise and ability to design world-class cruise ships and we look forward to designing the second vessel in this remarkable Global class series,” said Patrik Rautaheimo, Elomatic CEO.
Set to be 342 metres long and more than 46 metres wide, the 204,000gt newbuild has been designed specifically for the Asian market. Onboard features will include a cineplex, Asian and Western spas, shopping facilities, Asian and international dining experiences, fast-food restaurants and a theme park that includes a rollercoaster with virtual reality. There will also be 2,500 cabins that can accommodate up to 5,000 passengers based on a twin-sharing basis, or up to 9,500 during peak holiday periods.
“We are very proud to continue the strategic partnership with MV Werften,” said Janne Uotila, CEO of Deltamarin. “We look forward to further developing the cooperation with the yard, providing it with excellent services and helping it execute Genting’s extensive newbuilding programme.”
