Genting Dream to set sail by end-July
This comes as all cruise officers and crew complete their vaccination.
Genting Dream will set sail on 30 July after it completed the vaccination of all its officers and crew.
This is in compliance with the requirements set by the Hong Kong government to ensure the safe resumption of cruise operations.
“We are extremely excited to be the first cruise ship to return to Hong Kong–a historically important homeport for Dream Cruises and one of the most stunning skylines in the world,” Captain Jukka Silvennoinen of Genting Dream, said.
“After being away for nearly a year and a half, we truly miss Hong Kong and we can’t wait to welcome our guests back on board.”
The Genting Dream arrived in Hong Kong on 9 June and has since been anchored off Lamma Island. Its crew members received their first dose on 23 June.
Genting Dream will be offering two- and three-night “Super Summer Seacations” packages.
“Genting Cruise Lines has been working hard to make sure Genting Dream will be ready for a re-start on 30 July by utilising our resources, experience, and expertise from across our fleet and the region,” Genting Cruise Lines President Kent Zhu said.
The cruise line replaced all of its air filters with a system that allowed 25 cubic metres of fresh air per person per hour.
A PCR machine was also set up in the cruise for medical laboratory level testing for COVID-19 along with negative pressure isolation wards.
