Dream Cruises celebrates launch of Explorer Dream with roadshows

Dream Cruises celebrated the launch of the newest member of its fleet in style on Thursday night, with the first of a series of roadshows.

The Dream Team kicked off their Explorer Dream roadshow with events in Sydney, Perth and the Gold Coast, with more events to come as the roadshow continues across major cities in Australia and New Zealand in the coming weeks.

“The latest edition of the Dream Cruises Fleet – Explorer Dream – will be visiting our shores later this year, taking our brand to new horizons,” Brigita Devries, Dream Cruises vice president said.

“Tonight, we celebrate this milestone and also celebrate you – our industry partners for your ongoing support and for making our new cruise brand a success in only two years.”

Devries shared details and rendered images of the soon to be refurbished ship, giving the crowd an insight into what to expect when Explorer Dream arrives on Australian and New Zealand shores.

“Explorer Dream’s visit presents a unique opportunity to discover Australia & New Zealand from the perspective of the high seas,” Devries said.

“She is well-suited for the tranquil lifestyle of Australia, combining authentic heartfelt hospitality to those who enjoy a casual yet luxe atmosphere, with an appreciation for the finer things in life.”

Explorer Dream will embark on a series of 7-night cruises from 27 October 2019.
