The image above shows Genting Dream, the first ship being built for Asian Dream Cruises line, equipped with an external lighting system by Finnish engineering company Wärtsilä. 

Built at German Meyer Werft shipyard, the 151,300 gross ton ship features a length of 335 meters and a width of 37.9 meters.

The Dynamic Exterior Lighting concept provides a “stunning visual effect” to the ship’s exterior profile. It has been engineered and installed by Wärtsilä Funa in cooperation with the owner and the shipyard.

“This lighting concept will change the way people see a cruise ship arriving or departing the harbours of the world,” Frank Meyer, Project Manager, Wärtsilä Funa Internationalsaid.

On September 18, the river conveyance of the Genting Dream officially started from Meyer Werft shipyard, marking the start of the ship’s journey to Guangzhou, China, where it will begin service on November 13, 2016.

The Genting Dream is the first of two cruise vessels being built for Dream Cruises, a part of Genting Hong Kong. It will be able to accommodate 3,400 passengers and 2,000 crew. Its sister ship, the World Dream, is scheduled for delivery in late 2017.
