It’s Asia’s first home-grown luxury cruise line. Now we can reveal what Genting Dream has on offer that will make it different to other luxury cruise ships.
Bookings have just opened for Australians and New Zealanders. So what’s the Dream difference?
The experience starts before you step on-board with an amazing piece of hull art created by Chinese pop-artist Jacky Tsai.
This is a ship that appears to cater for everyone from the seasoned cruiser to the family looking for an adventure together – there are over 100 connecting rooms.
More than 70% of the staterooms contain private balconies – and for the ultimate experience, there is the “Dream Mansion”, a ‘ship within a ship’.
Dream Mansion features two floors of lavish suites with European-style butler service and special guest experiences.
Dream Cruises – owned by Genting Holdings, which owns Crystal Cruises, one of the world’s most awarded luxury cruise lines – has borrowed some in-house expertise in designing amazing on-board experiences.
Foodies will be in heaven: there are 35 restaurant and bar concepts. An innovative wraparound promenade allows for an amazing seaside dining experience where windows and doors can be opened to allows the outside in.
The whiskey bar promises one of the largest collections of single malts anywhere in the world. Enjoy a Cuban cigar in the cigar bar, while learning the art of cigar making. Combine it with a salsa lesson.
But what about fun?
How about two submersibles. Each carries 4 guests and a pilot, what a dream experience!
The fun continues with six waterslides, rock climbing, kids water park, a ropes course as well as a heart pounding zip line this is over the side of the ship some 18-stories high!
At night the world famous Zouk nightclub comes to life both inside the ship and outside with an amazing outdoor party venue with shallow pool dance floor.
Now add a fireworks display in the middle of ocean.
The on-board entertainment extends from the likes of the Zodiac Theatre – fantastic tribute bands – or Silk Road, which transforms from a world class restaurant to a late night cabaret club.
On the wellness front, Genting Dream will cater for all guests with both Asian and Western Spa facilities.
Kids are looked after in the Little Pandas Club. Genting plans on hiring qualified staff in the area of child development to create enrichment and learning experiences along with traditional play.
The ship has huge guest rooms, amazing on-board facilities, a guest to crew ratio of 1.7 .
Genting Hong Kong is the only true Asian Cruise brand, and with over 25 years’ experience in the region. Their newest ship will be a worthy opponent to the major Western brands.
