Resorts World Cruises has announced the launch of its dual homeports in Southeast Asia. Beginning 18 July, cruisers will be able to board Genting Dream from Port Klang in Kuala Lumpur, in addition to its existing Singapore homeport.

With the addition of its Kuala Lumpur homeport, this new arrangement will give cruisers the option of choosing to embark from Singapore or Malaysia.

“Resorts World Cruises is excited to take the lead for the cruise sector to boost the in-and-outbound tourists for Singapore; and to bring cruising to the ‘doorsteps’ of Malaysians residing in central Peninsular Malaysia as they can depart from Kuala Lumpur, which is convenient and affordable,” said Michael Goh, president of Resorts World Cruises.

The cruise line’s dual homeport arrangement aims to capture the 10 million population residing in central Peninsula Malaysia comprising Kuala Lumpur, Selangor, Negeri Sembilan and Malacca that’s situated in close proximity to Port Klang.

Round-trip two-night cruises from Kuala Lumpur to Singapore will depart on Thursdays and Saturdays, and three-night cruises from Kuala Lumpur to Penang and Singapore will depart on Mondays. Sailings from Singapore will remain the same on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
