Genting Dream Cruise Ship Completes Ems River Conveyance

One of the largest cruise ships being built this year has completed a major milestone at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany.

Genting Dream which is a luxury cruise ship being built for Asian based Dream Cruises completed the conveyance successfully. The ship set off from the dock yard on Sunday afternoon and very slowly made its way along the Ems River. The journey is extremely dangerous with just inches to spare on either side on some parts of the river.

The Conveyance lasted almost 24 hours and the ship finally arrived at Eemshaven on Monday morning. From there the ship will begin its final phase before being delivered to the cruise line in November. Sea Trials will take place in the North Seas to make sure the ship is sea worthy and ready for service.
