Resorts World Cruises’ Genting Dream will accommodate 3,352 guests
Resorts World Cruises, a new Asian luxury and lifestyle cruise brand, will debut in Singapore on 15 June 2022 with its first ship, Genting Dream.
The cruise line is a brand extension of Resorts World, which has 46 properties in eight countries and across four continents, and is managed by a team with over five decades of international hospitality experience and almost three decades of global cruise experience. Resorts World Cruises will use its rich Asian heritage in culture, hospitality and cuisine to provide guests with luxurious experiences.
“We started our cruise operations 30 years ago in Singapore and we are excited to again launch the first Resorts World Cruises in Singapore, the first country to re-open cruising in the region,” said Tan Sri KT Lim, Resorts World Cruises’ executive chairman. “Resorts World Cruises will have its headquarters in Singapore and is committed to making Singapore the leading cruise hub in Asia. We also appreciate the support and trust of the Chinese leasing banks in allowing Resorts World Cruises to charter the Genting Dream.”
Originally built for Dream Cruises which folded during the pandemic, Genting Dream has 18 decks and weighs 150,695gt, allowing it to accommodate 3,352 passengers and 1,600 crew members. Accommodation consists of interior, oceanview and balcony staterooms. Palace Suites will also be available on the top deck within The Palace, which is a ship-within-a-ship concept with its own restaurant, bar, sundeck, spa, gym, butler services and other facilities.
Onboard entertainment will include a waterpark made up of six slides and pools, bowling alleys, duty-free shopping, spa and gym facilities, as well as a Zodiac theatre that will showcase productions, workshops, magic classes and more.
Genting Dream will also feature 35 onboard restaurants and bars, serving a range of cuisines such as traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Malaysian and Singaporean dishes, as well as halal, vegetarian and Western dining options.
Guests will be able to curate and customise their cruise experiences from ship to shore, including dining packages, activities and excursions.
“In response to the evolving market demands and emerging needs for a personalise travel experience, vacationers can now have the ultimate indulgence to enjoy a kaleidoscope of lifestyle experiences on board Genting Dream,” said Michael Goh, president and head of international sales of Resorts World Cruises. “With Resorts World Cruises, we hope vacationers can immerse in a truly unique holiday that is rich in Asian heritage with diverse international experiences on the high seas.”
