Dream Cruises Family Expands with Explorer Dream

Genting Cruise Lines announced the latest addition to the Dream Cruises family with a 75,338 gross ton, 1,870 passenger cruise ship Explorer Dream, that will join the fleet in spring 2019.

Formerly the SuperStar Virgo of sister brand Star Cruises, Explorer Dream will undergo a USD 30 million transformation in March 2019 and sail as the company’s pathfinder marking its first step to become Asia’s Global Cruise Line.

Explorer Dream will strengthen the Dream Cruises’ brand in North China with homeports in Shanghai and Tianjin during spring/summer 2019 with a selection of voyages of various durations from Shanghai or Tianjin to Japan, Russia, Hong Kong and the Philippines.

“Dream Cruises will be extending its brand recognition to 300 million Chinese in Shanghai and Tianjin/Beijing next summer as well as offering cruises in Australia and New Zealand to its Asian-sourced passengers during winter 2019 – the first time Dream Cruises will be sailing outside Asia,” said Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, Executive Chairman of Genting Hong Kong.

Taking the first step to evolve Dream Cruises into Asia’s Global Cruise Line by sailing outside Asian waters, in autumn/winter of 2019, Explorer Dream will homeport in Sydney and Auckland where she will embark on 21 seven-night weekly itineraries.

“We will be accelerating this vision to develop Dream Cruises into Asia’s Global Cruise Line by utilizing one of Asia’s favourite ships, SuperStar Virgo, and converting her into a brand new sibling alongside Genting Dream and World Dream,” added Tan Sri Lim.
