Dream Cruises’ inaugural vessel, Genting Dream, said it is the first mega luxury cruise ship to homeport exclusively in Singapore. This marks the first time Singapore has hosted a large-scale, 150,695-tonne cruise ship for an extended period, said a press release.
From her new Singapore homeport at Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore, Genting Dream will take travellers to South-east Asian ports-of-call such as North Bali, Indonesia, and Macleod Island in Myanmar. There will also be new itineraries launched to Thailand and Malaysia.
With the new homeport deployment of Genting Dream in Singapore, Dream Cruises has forged an innovative three-year tripartite joint cooperation partnership with the Singapore Tourism Board and Changi Airport Group. This collaboration will see an investment of over S$28 million (US$20.7 million) to promote Singapore as a key tourism destination, as well as an Asian cruise hub and strategic gateway to access neighbouring countries through fly/cruise itineraries.
