German shipbuilder Meyer Werft officially started the construction of the second new cruise ship for Asian cruise line Dream Cruises, a part of Genting Hong Kong, with a keel laying of World Dream on January 10.

During the ceremony in Papenburg, Germany, block number 3, one of 92 blocks that will eventually complete the 151,000-ton ship, was lifted into the building dock to launch the block assembly for World Dream.

“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,” Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Genting Hong Kong, said.

Upon completion, the 21-deck World Dream will be able to accommodate over 3,300 guests in nearly 1,700 staterooms.

The new cruise ship is scheduled to make its debut in the Asia Pacific in November of this year.
