Resorts World Cruises Singapore launches with Hong Kong's Genting Dream


Genting Dream cruising into Victoria Harbour, Hong Kong.


Genting Dream is now sailing as part of Resorts World Cruises.


Brand new cruise line Resorts World Cruises launches in June with Dream Cruises’ Genting Dream as its flagship vessel.


It would seem Hong Kong’s loss is Singapore’s gain as brand new cruise line Resorts World Cruises begins sailing.


The cruise line will be operating Genting Dream as its flagship, a vessel that was once part of the Dream Cruises fleet under Genting Hong Kong, which collapsed into liquidation earlier this year.


Management and investors at the now defunct cruise line have restarted operations as Resorts World Cruises in Singapore. The former chairman of Genting Hong Kong and Dream Cruises, Lim Kok Thay, is owner of Resorts World and will maintain the same chairman title at Resorts World Cruises. Colin Au and Michael Goh have also moved from Genting Hong Kong to Resorts World Cruises as chief executive officer and president respectively.


Resorts World is an established hospitality company with more than 40 hotels in eight countries.


Genting Dream arrived at Marina Bay Cruise Centre yesterday in preparation for its first sailing on June 15. Resorts World Cruises says it plans to position itself as the leading cruise line in the region for Asian source markets.


Genting Dream has 35 dining spaces, a 1,000-seat theatre, spas and a theme park of pools, waterslides, ziplines and rock climbing wall. After launching in 2016, it operated as a pandemic-safe 'cruise to nowhere' vessel from Hong Kong from last summer.


“These are truly exciting times,” said Goh. “We are thrilled to witness the start of Genting Dream as the flagship of Resorts World Cruises.”
