Resorts World Cruises snags another ship from Genting Hong Kong


Resorts World Cruises, which began in the wake of Genting Hong Kong’s Dream Cruises, announced it has secured another ship from its former company, Explorer Dream.

Resorts World Cruises plans on beginning using the ship in March. This will make Explorer Dream, which is now known as Resorts World One under the new brand, the first cruise ship homeporting in Hong Kong in 15 months.

“We are pleased that Resorts World Cruises will have the first cruise ship to homeport in Hong Kong after the resumption of normal travel with the Mainland and overseas,” said Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, chairman of Resorts World Cruises.

“We hope to support the growth of Hong Kong tourism as we had done for both Singapore and Malaysia.”

The ship is set to begin sailing on 17 February in place of the Genting Dream, which will be undergoing maintenance. From 10 March, Explorer Dream will offer 2 and 3-night cruises, beginning every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. These cruises will run through December this year.

The restarting of cruises is part of new policies introduced by the CCP to relax travel restrictions.

Resorts World Cruises began in June 2022 by Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, who was the chairman on Dream Cruises and Genting Hong Kong before exiting at the start of 2022 following the cruise lines’ financial collapse.
