Dream Cruises’ emergence in the Asian market has been nothing short of staggering. In less than 20 months, the line has not only introduced a new brand to an entirely new market, but launched a 151,000gt luxury vessel Genting Dream to boot. In the keynote article, Dream Cruises’ president Thatcher Brown discusses the line’s early success and what the future holds. Turn to page 4 to find out what he has to say. This issue’s cover story reports on the recent cruise industry growth in Orkney – an increasingly frequent inclusion in Round Britain and North Atlantic itineraries. Read more on page 6. We also hear from Sture Myrmell of P&O Cruises Australia on page 14, who explains what’s behind Australasia’s recent cruise boom, and Chris Allen discusses the trends inspiring itinerary planning for Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara Club Cruises on page 17. We also report back from a number of recent association events, including the 2017 Cruise Europe Conference, the Cruise Baltic Summit, and MedCruise’s 50th General Assembly.
