Dream Cruises’ Genting Dream last week made its maiden call at the Brunei Muara Port with around 3,000 international passengers.
The call was the third stop of a five-night round-trip cruise from Singapore to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia and Muara in Brunei.
Brunei’s deputy permanent secretary, Awang Wardi bin Mohammad Ali at the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism hosted a welcome reception for those arriving.
Earlier this year, the Tourism Development Department at the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism launched the Discover Muara package, as part of its efforts to introduce more attractions in Muara Town and near to the Cruise Ship Centre and Ferry Terminals to create more offerings and options for the tourists arriving into Muara Port.
On average, 15 cruise ships sail into Brunei Muara Port every year, bringing about 400 to 3,000 passengers with each call.
