The next generation of Asian cruise ships will make waves—and dreams.

Next November, cruise ship lovers can look forward to Genting’s very own Genting Dream, a goliath galleon.

It can carry up to 3,4000 guests with over 2,000 crewmembers to cater to them. Exclusive “Dream Suites” as big as 182 metres will grace it—complete with butler services. Over 70 percent of the staterooms have private balconies. There are over 100 connecting rooms for families. Fine dining and drinking can be had from the four corners of the world in more than 35 specialty restaurants and bars. It has two submersible ships for underwater adventures.

The homeports will be in China, running from Guangzhou’s Nansha Port, to Hong Kong, to Sanya. From these Pearl River Delta and Hainan ports, guests can fly in to regional airports such Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Macau, Zhuhai, Sanya, or Haikou. The Guangzhou moorings offer annual two-night weekend cruises. From Hong Kong, the Genting Dream will call in Fridays. The Hong Kong homeport experience features a 7-night itinerary with Guangzhou, Sanya, and Halong Bay and Danang in Vietnam. This trip also includes stops in either Shenzhen or Zhuhai. The Sanya homeport mirrors the same route as the Hong Kong voyages of seven days.

This is not the only gargantuan pleasure ship on the horizon—Genting will smash christening champagne across the bow of the World Dream in November 2017.

For Genting, their South China Sea dreams seem to becoming true.
