World Dream’s twin sister ship Genting Dream, meanwhile, will be deployed at her new homeport in Singapore with new itineraries to North Bali and Surabaya in Indonesia, as well as Kuala Lumpur and Penang in Malaysia and Phuket in Thailand.
Said Kent Zhu, president of Genting Cruise Lines: “Genting Cruise Lines is reinforcing our position in the Pearl River Delta Region by welcoming World Dream to begin her service with (the) dual homeports… following in the footsteps of Genting Dream previously.”
“Designed to cater to the growing Chinese market with tailor made facilities including quad occupancy staterooms to accommodate family travellers, World Dream will further build upon our commitment to this region which has seen Guangzhou (Nansha) evolve into China’s second busiest port and the strengthening of Hong Kong as a premier fly/cruise hub,” he added.
