Half a year after its launch, Resorts World Cruises marks another new milestone with its maiden voyage to Surabaya on the Genting Dream, bringing over 3,500 passengers from her dual homeports in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur (Port Klang).

During the ship’s visit to Surabaya, guests disembarking had the opportunity to explore many of the city’s hidden gems, which include famous landmarks such as the Four Faced Buddha monument with the biggest and tallest Four Faces Deity statue in Indonesia; views of Putuk Truno Waterfall or Mount Penanggugan in Tretes; and shopping at Pasar Genteng and Tunjungan Plaza.

The following day, the ship continued to North Bali where guests had a chance to visit local attractions on the island. These include photogenic spots like the Kekeran Rice Terrace, the protected sanctuary of Plataran Menjangan Resort Bali and also West Bali; or a dive in the pristine waters of Menjangan Island.

“Resorts World Cruises is excited to include both Surabaya and North Bali as destinations for this special Indonesia cruise from both our homeports. Indonesia remains an important cruise market with huge potential both as a destination and source market for the fly-cruise sector," said Michael Goh, president of Resorts World Cruises.

The cruise line also welcomed Indonesian delegates in Surabaya, comprising media, travel and business partners for a special showcase event on the Genting Dream.
