    Dream Cruises, the first-ever Asian luxury cruise line, has been officially launched in the Philippines. Dream Cruises is Genting Hong Kong’s brand-new cruise line catering to the large and still-growing high end market in Asia.

    Genting Dream, the first ship of their fleet, was handed over to Dream Cruises from Meyer Weft, a German passenger ship and cruise liner manufacturer, last October 12. She has already begun her trip from the docks of Germany and will arrive in Singapore on November 4, having passed through Gibraltar, the Mediterranean Sea, the Suez Canal, and across the Indian Ocean, including a few visits to India.

    Her arrival in Singapore will be marked with a 2-night High Seas cruise followed by a 6-night Singapore to Hong Kong cruise, which includes stops in Vietnam, mainly Ho Chi Minh City, Nha Trang, and Da Nang.

    The Genting Dream will have two home ports: one in Hong Kong and the other in Guangzhou, via the Nansha port, and Hong Kong. Travelers will have the option of booking for a 2-, 5-, or 7-night tour of Vietnam, Guangzhou, or Hong Kong. Enjoy these destinations from November 13, 2016 to March 31, 2017.

    Genting Dream promises to be the best of any luxury cruise ships that may come into the region. With a lower berth capacity of 3,400 guests and a crew of 2,000, it’s seen as the best crew-to-guest ratio for Asia-based cruises. Rooms are at the height of luxury, with 70 percent of state rooms featuring private balconies.

    Guests can also experience the ultimate in luxury with the “Dream Palace” – a “ship-within-a-ship” concept that includes lavish suites, European-style butler service, and special privileges afforded to its guests.

    Food will not be a problem within the Genting Dream thanks to its 610-meter wraparound promenade featuring 35 restaurants and bar concepts that capture the flavors of Asia. She also promises a good time even at the High Seas thanks to its interactive guest activities, entertainment options (including Zouk, Singapore’s legendary nightspot), a “plethora of past times” (pools, water slides, play rooms, rock climbing wall, and mini-golf), and highly immersive “retail-tainment”.

    If you’re interested in booking a cruise or you want to know more about Dream Cruises, just ask your preferred travel agent or go to dreamcruiseline.com. Reservations can be made by calling 02-836-6830 to 32 or by emailing salesmanila@starcruises.com.
