Cruise Line Announces Record-Setting Bookings

Oceania Cruises has some good news for the industry with its Labor Day promotion setting a record in its cruise bookings.

Genting Hong Kong is launching a new premium cruise line for the Asian market and will bring to large cruise ships. The Genting Dream and World Dream will both be purpose-built for the newly formed cruise line named Dream Cruises.

Genting Dream will be the first of two new ships, they will both be built-in Germany. The Genting Dream will be delivered in November 2016 and the World Dream will be delivered in November 2017. The ships will be 150,000 gross tons and 3,400 passengers, making them the largest ever cruise ships built for an Asian cruise line and one of the biggest in the world. There will be 2,000 crew members onboard which will provide a first class service to Asian cruisers.

For a while now we’ve known Genting ordered a new 150,000 gross ton cruise ship with a similar design to Norwegian Cruise Lines Breakaway class. NCL is part of Genting Hong Kong so we can expect a similar design. It was first thought that the new ships would be sailing for Asia’s leading based cruise line Star Cruises but now it looks like the new ships will sail for Dream Cruises.

35 dining venues will be featured onboard the new ships that will offer guests Asian cuisine from around the region. There will be several pools along with six water slides to keep passengers busy throughout the day. As the ships will be built for the Asian market there will also be regional favorites including dedicated Mahjong and game spaces. A ropes and climbing course will be included on the open deck.

During the announcement onboard Star Cruises SuperStar Virgo some itinerary details were released. There will be 3 homeports that Dream Cruises will sail 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.
