Cruise ship Genting Dream, once operated by the now-defunct Genting Hong Kong, will be setting sail again under a new company called Resorts World Cruises from Jun 15.

The new company is set up by Malaysian tycoon Lim Kok Thay, who is chairman and board executive of Genting Group.

Genting Dream will start trips from Singapore and allow passengers to choose from a selection of round-trip cruises. These choices include the two-night Getaway Cruise, the two-night Weekend Cruise, departing Wednesdays and Fridays respectively, as well as the three-night Escapade Cruise departing every Sunday.

The vessel will have a vast selection of facilities and services including a giant waterpark with six slides and pools, bowling alleys, gyms with personalised qualified trainers and award-winning shows.

Dining options aboard will also be plentiful with globally inspired cuisine and beverages offered at any one of the ship’s 35 restaurants and bars.

The ship has over 1,600 rooms, consisting of Interior staterooms (which have no view), Oceanview staterooms (which have a view of the sea) or Balcony staterooms (which allows passengers to soak in the panoramic view of the sea). The Palace suites at the top deck of the ship meanwhile will have private amenities. 

Bookings for the cruise can be made at this website and all cruise payments made will be kept in a separate account that will be drawn down only prior to the cruise commencement. Prices start from $798.

In conjunction with the launch and as a gesture of goodwill, Resorts World Cruises will offer complimentary cruise credits of the equivalent value for passengers affected by World Dream’s cruise cancellations in Singapore between Mar 2 and Aug 31.

The credits will be valid from Jun 15 to end-March 2023 and are “only applicable to affected World Dream passengers that have yet to receive any refund from their original booking source”.

Affected passengers can email Resorts World Cruises for further enquiries.
