Cruise operator Genting Hong Kong (GHK) has launched the construction of the second Global Class cruise ship at German shipbuilder MV Werften.

The steel cutting ceremony for Dream Cruises’ 342-meter-long vessel was held on September 10 in Rostock-Warnemünde, almost a year after the keel laying of the flagship of the series.

The 208,000 gross ton cruise ship, Global 2, is identical in construction to its sister ship Global 1, which is due to enter operation under the name Global Dream in 2021.

Production work on the new vessel with the yard number 126 is being divided up among all three locations of MV Werften. Up to 30 large sections are being built in Stralsund for subsequent final assembly in Wismar, where a 125-meter-high crane, purchased specially for the Global project, is currently being installed at the outfitting quay.

The keel laying of the ship is planned for December 9, 2019, with delivery scheduled for 2022.

The vessel will be capable of accommodating up to 9,500 passengers and a crew of 2,200. Global Dream and Global 2, the first vessels worldwide capable of carrying more than 10,000 persons, are intended for the fast-growing Asian market.
