Genting Cruise Lines has floated out the World Dream from the Meyer Werft shipyard in Germanny’s Papenburg, at the same time unveiling the new hull artwork by renowned Shanghainese artist Jacky Tsai.
World Dream will this month begin sailing across the Ems River to the North Sea and then onward to Asia. The ship will make her debut in Asia out of Hong Kong and Guangzhou (Nansha) homeports.

Kent Zhu, president of Genting Cruise Lines, said: “World Dream will effectively double Dream Cruises’ capacity in Asia-Pacific to cater to the high-end and fly/cruise markets in the region.”
Entitled A Tale of Two Dreams, the hull artwork by Tsai plays on age-old themes and Chinese mythical characters. Tsai had also provided artwork for Dream Cruises’ inaugural ship, the Genting Dream.
