Resorts World Cruises propels demand


Resorts World Cruises, a luxury-lifestyle cruise line with itineraries within Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand aboard the vessel Genting Dream, has announced cruises from Hong Kong on Resorts World One from March 10 with two- and three-night high-seas cruises departing every Friday, Sunday and Wednesday.

Resorts World One was formerly the Explorer Dream, a 13-storey high cruise ship with 928 rooms that can accommodate more than 1,856 guests with world-class facilities.

The resumption of Resorts World Cruises excursions in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur (via Port Klang) with the Genting Dream from June last year propelled demand among cruise passengers to above pre-Covid-19 levels for the second half of 2022, supporting a revival of the tourism industries in both homeport countries.

Resorts World One is chartered by Resorts World Cruises and she will replace Genting Dream's regular two- and three-night itineraries from Feb 17 to March 1, as the Genting Dream goes into dry dock for regular maintenance. Departing on March 3, Resorts World One will offer a special five-night repositioning cruise from Singapore, calling at Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang, prior to arriving in Hong Kong on March 8. Passengers also can embark from Kuala Lumpur (via Port Klang) for this repositioning cruise on March 2, making it a six-night cruise calling at Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang before arriving in Hong Kong on March 8.
