Genting Hong Kong’s Lim Kok Thay announces the keel laying of Dream Cruises’ second Global Class ship

Dream Cruises marked the keel laying of its second Global Class ship on December 9, 2019 at MV Werften in Rostock, Germany.

The keel-laying ceremony for the 208,000 gross ton ship was attended by guests from the state and federal government, business leaders as well as media representatives from Germany and Asia, including Western-Pomerania’s economics minister Harry Glawe, Genting Hong Kong’s chairman and CEO Lim Kok Thay, deputy CEO Hui Lim, group president Colin Au, Genting Cruise Lines’ president Kent Zhu, Dream Cruises’ president Michael Goh and MV Werften’s CEO Peter Fetten.

All participants placed the traditional lucky coins on the keel block before the 95m high gantry crane lowered the 470 ton section into position.

Genting Hong Kong will be starting the design and building of the next series of Universal Class ships at MV Werften, with the first to be delivered at the end of 2022, according to Lim.
