Genting Dream Delivered
Meyer Werft delivered the new 151,300gt cruise ship Genting Dream to the Asian cruise operator company Dream Cruises on Wednesday.
The new ship for Dream Cruises has capacity for about 4,500 passengers in 1,674 cabins. It is 335 meters long, 39.7 meters wide and can reach a speed of more than 23 knots.
The vessel features environmentally friendly marine engines, diesel-electric pod drives, and improved hydrodynamics as well as numerous energy saving measures, heat recovery and ballast water treatment.
The new cruise ship is designed for the rapidly developing Chinese cruise market. Genting Dream has 35 restaurants and bars; various entertainment facilities such as theatres, bowling and a climbing park, as well as plenty of space for other outdoor activities. About 75 percent of the cabins are outer cabins and most of these have their own balcony.
The vessel has a crew of around 1,700 to offer passengers a particularly high standard of service.
For the first time, the cruise ship also carries two small deep sea submarines that can each take four people down to a depth of up to 200 meters.
The dynamic exterior lighting concept developed by Project International Lighting Designers provides a stunning visual effect to the ship's exterior profile. It has been engineered and installed by Wärtsilä Funa.
After being handed over in Bremerhaven, Genting Dream will set sail for Asia where it will offer cruises for two, five and seven nights. Sailing from Hong Kong, it will cruise through spectacular regions in Vietnam and China. The vessel will be homeported at Nansha in Guangzhou, China.
The Genting Dream is the first of two cruise vessels being built for the company.
