Let’s take the very first look at the newly formed Dream Cruises upcoming cruise ship. A new video online shows one of the ship’s huge blocks being floated out of the construction hall for the very first time. Step by step the block floats out into the morning crisp air at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.
We also get a little teaser view of Royal Caribbean’s Ovation of the Seas which has been under construction in the same hall. The Genting Dream is still in the early stages of construction and there are many more major milestones to come all the way until the ship is delivered to Dream Cruises in November 2016.
Here is the first look below by inselvideo:
The ship is the first of two new class vessels for Chinese based Dream Cruises. The second ship called World Dream will be delivered by Meyer Werft in November 2017. Genting Dream will be purpose-built for the Asian cruise market and will offer many features onboard that other continents may not be familiar with. The ship will be the largest purpose-built for the Asian market for a Chinese cruise brand. Dream Cruises is part of Genting Hong Kong which also owns Star Cruises based in Asia.
Once delivered Genting Dream will offer cruises from Guangzhou, Hong Kong and the popular resort destination of Sanya in South China. There will be 2-night, 5-night and 7-night long cruises including port of calls to Halong Bay, Danang, Shenzhen and Zhuhai.
Genting Dream will be 150,000 gross tons carrying 3,400 passengers and 2,000 crew members. Are you ready to sail on the upcoming ship? Let us know in the comments below.
