Dream Cruises, New Upmarket Brand For Asia – Vancouver Returns To Growth – Odds and Ends

The Cruise Examiner for 16th November 2015.

Genting Dream

The Genting Dream is the first of two 3,364-berth upmarket cruise ships being completed for Dream Cruises by Meyer Werft

Last week saw an announcement by Genting that it would be using the two ships it has on order at Meyer Werft for delivery in 2016 and 2017 to launch Asia’s first premium class cruise line. To be called Dream Cruises, the line’s new ships will have a passenger space ratio about 5% higher than Celebrity’s Solstice class vessels. Meanwhile, in Canada, the Port of Vancouver is slowly recovering from the onslaught it received from Seattle several years ago after newer and faster ships saw more Alaska cruises sailing the extra distance from Seattle. Finally, we have updates on previous stories on Crystal River Cruises and Thomson Cruises.
