Dream Cruises is really hyping up its first ever cruise ship the Genting Dream. The 150,000 gross ton vessel is making its debut this November and the newly formed cruise line just finished a road show in the Chinese city of Chengdu.
A road show was held at Chengdu’s trendy new shopping location at Taikoo Li. If you didn’t know, Chengdu is located in Sichuan province in Eastern China, with a population of around 10 million it was the perfect choice to showcase the upcoming ship. The Roadshow which took place on Tuesday afternoon showcased all the luxury features and a talent show.
Mr. Thatcher Brown. President of Dream Cruises said:
”The Western China high-end travel market, especially Chengdu, has become one of the target markets for cruise travel, and it is my pleasure to introduce Dream Cruises and its inaugural ship Genting Dream to the market through our roadshow in Chengdu. Dream Cruises aims to redefine vacation travel with a transformational journey at sea, by offering guests the finest Asian and international dining, exceptional service, enthralling entertainment and inspirational experiences.”
The new ship will be featuring ‘China’s Got Talent’, the first ever at sea. It will be a 45 minute theatrical representation of the worldwide hit TV series held in the Zodiac Theatre, the cruise ship’s 999 seat state-of-the-art venue. An energetic, booming opening montage, complete with the same lighting, set design and theme music as the main China’s Got Talent show will set the scene. The show is just one of many entertainment offerings for the luxury Asian based cruise line.
At the moment Genting Dream is under construction at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany. Once completed in November 2016 the ship will sail towards its new homeport of Guangzhou, China.
