Construction has started on Dream Cruises’ second 151,300 GT cruise ship, World Dream.
The first of 92 blocks, which will make up the ship, was laid during the keel laying ceremony at the Meyer Werft shipyard in Papenburg, Germany, on Tuesday.
“After the successful debut of Genting Dream last November and the wonderful reception the ship has experienced from our guests, we are excited to start the construction process on World Dream,” said Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Genting Hong Kong. “World Dream will push the bar even higher for the cruise industry through her quality construction and customized design, best in class service and diverse range of entertainment, dining, leisure and recreation options – all complemented by Dream Cruises’ Asian at Heart, International in Spirit hospitality.”
World Dream, which will be identical to the recently launched Genting Dream, will debut in November 2017.
