It was a memorable day for Genting Hong Kong as they embarked on a Journey of dreams, to build Asia’s first luxury cruise brand “Dream Cruises” to fill in the gap on the rising demand of cruise travelers in Asia.
With the success of “Star Cruises” Genting Hong Kong introduced “Dream Cruises” a luxury line catered to the Asian market with 151,300 gross ton making “Genting Dream” one of the largest cruise ship in Asia.
During the launch ceremony, we were treated to a guided tour to explore the ship’s array of amazing facilities and amenities, including the Balcony Stateroom, Zouk Beach Club, Waterslide Park, Crystal Life Fitness and Spa, ”Bistro” by Mark Best, Johnnie Walker House, Penfolds Wine Vault and Little Pandas Club.
Here’s a Glimpse of your First Genting Dream Sea Experience:

Luxurious Toiletries from Salvatore Ferragamo for staterooms and Etro for Suites and above are one of the luxury amenities available on-board the ship.

Located at the end of the ship, Dream Cruises takes the Zouk experience to the seas for the first time through Zouk’s key pillars of music programming, LIVE guest artiste and DJ performances, signature drinks menu, unique fringe activities via collaborators of fitness and hands-on experiences, including DJ open deck workshops.
Like Singapore’s Jiak Kim Street original, Zouk Beach Club on board Genting Dream encompasses several nightlife concepts divided into three areas: an indoor dance club; a sports bar with billiards and a four-lane glow-in-the-dark bowling alley; and, an outdoor day and night party deck. Zouk Beach Club is also available for private functions.
Movie nights under the stars are staged on weeknights while live fireworks displays will also be held, subject to weather conditions.
Johnnie Walker House
Another first at sea, The Johnnie Walker House is the place for those who want to enjoy the wide selection of wines & drinks.
A multi-sensory environment instantly transports guests into the world of fine Scotch whisky through exclusive “theatrical mentoring” sessions, which are immersions into the Johnnie Walker brand and product universe through a combination of education, entertainment, storytelling and taste, led by brand ambassadors.
Built around the theme of ‘whisky conversations’, Johnnie Walker House serves as an exclusive embassy for premium Scotch whisky. It’s a classic setting where guests discover the rich heritage of Scotch whisky and have the opportunity to appreciate, taste and purchase a selection of rare John Walker & Sons variants and single malts not available elsewhere.
