JOHOR – Crew members of Dream Cruises’ Genting Dream responded to a sinking boat in distress and performed a life-saving operation off the coast of Tanjung Pelepas in Johor, Malaysia in the early morning of Nov 1.

After being informed of the situation by Johor’s Vessel Traffic Information System (VTIS), the crew – led by Captain Jukka Silvennoinen – rescued the three men from danger and brought them onboard the cruise ship for medical care and assistance.

“Dream Cruises compliments Captain Jukka Silvennoinen and his crew aboard Genting Dream for their swift response in rescuing and aiding the three men from their sinking boat and bringing them to safety aboard the ship,” said Michael Goh, president of Dream Cruises.

The three rescued men were subsequently transferred to a Malaysian Coast Guard vessel where they were transported safely back to shore.
