If you want to roll in luxury and enjoy sea life, then board Genting’s new luxury cruise liner. It is an 18-deck luxury liner which can accommodate 3,400 guests and will be attended by 2,000 crew members. Recently, it made a port call in Singapore en route to home port of Nansha in the Chinese city of Guangzhou, where it is due to begin its maiden journey.

The liner made its port call in Singapore recently  for the official launch ceremony, graced by guest-of-honour Minister for Trade and Industry S Iswaran, Genting Hong Kong’s chairman and CEO Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay and Singapore Tourism Board’s chief executive Lionel Yeo.

Travel agents and media present were offered a glimpse into Dream Cruises’ signature production show, “Voyage of a Lover’s Dream", which tells the surrealistic love story between a mermaid and an astronaut through dexterous acrobatic feats and graceful dance moves.

In addition, guests were taken on a ship tour, which showcased the ship’s multitude products and experiences from its staterooms, where over 70 per cent  offer private balconies; entertainment venues such as the renowned Zouk club; and food & beverage spaces such as ‘Bistro’ by celebrity chef Mark Best and Chinese specialty restaurant Silk Road, which features a cabaret performance after 11 pm.

Genting Hong Kong's chairman and CEO Lim Kok Thay added that Singapore will remain a key home port for Genting as the group expands. He also noted that Genting has invested in three shipyards in Germany.

Minister for Trade and Industry (Industry) S Iswaran, who was the guest-of-honour at Genting Dream's launch ceremony in Singapore, said the Asia Pacific represents a key region for the cruise sector, with a growing middle class in the region.

"Singapore is committed to the cruise sector's growth. The enhanced Cruise Development Fund and the Meetings and Incentives special travel agent reward were rolled out earlier this year. These initiatives support travel agents and event organisers in chartering and attracting cruise incentive groups on sailings out of Singapore," Mr Iswaran said.
