Since announcing its dual homeport in Singapore and Port Klang – said to be the region’s first – on July 18, Resorts World Cruises has secured more than 40,000 guest bookings until the year-end for its Port Klang departure.
In a press update, the young cruise company said Genting Dream’s three-night round-trip cruises from Port Klang to Penang and Singapore, and two-night from Port Klang to Singapore are increasingly popular among travellers departing from Malaysia.
Michael Goh, president of Resorts World Cruises, said: “We are delighted with the overwhelming and positive response from the Malaysian market and are encouraged to see so many Malaysians choosing to cruise with us from Port Klang.
“With the addition of Port Klang as part of the dual homeport, many Malaysians are already taking advantage of the convenience and easy access to explore cruising vacations on Genting Dream.”
Commenting on the success of the Genting Dream product, Azrul Shah Bin Mohamad, CEO of Tourism Selangor, said: “Selangor is a beautiful state with so much to offer and Port Klang itself is a strategic homeport that will allow many Malaysians and international travellers to explore cruising as a choice vacation. With Resorts World Cruises taking the lead in choosing Port Klang as one of its homeports, it will continue to play an important role in contributing towards the growth of both the domestic and regional cruise tourism sector.”
