Dream Cruises last weekend celebrated the inaugural arrival of Explorer Dream in Sydney at the White Bay Cruise Terminal, heralding the start of the cruise line’s first sailing beyond Asia.
“Dream Cruises is excited to begin a new chapter as we chart new waters beyond Asia to homeport in Australia starting this year for the very first time, creating new milestones as Dream Cruises evolve into ‘Asia’s Global Cruise Line’,” said Michael Goh, president of Dream Cruises and head of international sales, Genting Cruise Lines. “Explorer Dream will provide an additional unique vacation experience for local Australian travellers and in bound international tourists with the growing fly-cruise opportunities, which will pave the way for the return of Explorer Dream to Australia again in 4Q2020.”
During Explorer Dream’s seasonal homeport deployment in Australia, travellers can explore a variety of round-trip cruise itineraries departing from Sydney and Brisbane between now and December 1, 2019 and also from February 9-23, 2020.
Travellers can choose to embark on a series of round-trip cruises from Sydney with a variety of 7N cruise itineraries or, alternatively, from Brisbane on 6N, 7N and 8N cruises to various Australian destinations including Newcastle, Gladstone, Sunshine Coast, Hobart, Melbourne, and Burnie. Travellers embarking from Brisbane can also opt for one-way 2N Sydney cruises or the 3N Sunshine Coast/Sydney cruises on selected departure dates.
