We are delighted that our comprehensive investments at the three shipyard locations are bearing fruits and we can already celebrate today the first steel cutting for another technologically advanced vessel for our shipping company Dream Cruises,– Genting Hong Kong’s chairman and CEO Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay

GERMANY – Dream Cruises’ second Global Class ship started construction at MV WERFTEN in Rostock-Warnemünde today (Sept 11), almost a year after the keel laying of the flagship of the series.

The milestone steel-cutting moment for the 342m-long, 46m-wide, 208,000-gross ton cruise vessel was initiated by Genting Hong Kong’s chairman and CEO Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay at the push of a button.

“We are delighted that our comprehensive investments at the three shipyard locations are bearing fruits and we can already celebrate today the first steel cutting for another technologically advanced vessel for our shipping company Dream Cruises,” Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay stated.

“Also thanks to the use of artificial intelligence, Dream Cruises’ second Global Class ship will offer our guests a very interesting, modern and highly comfortable travel experience.”

Identifical in construction to her sister ship, Global Dream, the second Global Class ship is also intended for the burgeoning Asian market. With 2,500 passenger cabins, it can accommodate over 9,000 passengers and 2,200 crew members. Together with Global Dream, they are the largest ships to be built in Germany and first in the world capable of carrying more than 10,000 persons.

Both ships are well equipped with modern digital technologies, such as face and speech recognition or climate control, mood lighting via app and more. The standard cabins are the most spacious in the sector – at 20 m² –, which are about 15% larger than those offered on other cruise ships.

The second Global Class ship’s keel laying is planned for Dec 9, with delivery scheduled for 2022.
