Dream Cruises – Explorer Dream arrived in Sydney at the White Bay Cruise Terminal on October 27, 2019. With this, the company has sailed beyond Asia for the first time taking its first step towards becoming a global cruise brand.
“Dream Cruises is excited to begin a new chapter as we chart new waters beyond Asia to home-port in Australia starting this year for the very first time, creating new milestones as Dream Cruises evolve into ‘Asia’s Global Cruise Line’,” said Michael Goh, President of Dream Cruises and Head of International Sales, Genting Cruise Lines.
If you sailed on SuperStar Virgo in the early 2000s, Explorer Dream might seem familiar, although an $85million refurbishment means the ship is virtually unrecognizable from its Star Cruises days.
“Explorer Dream will provide an additional unique vacation experience for local Australian travellers and inbound international tourists with the growing Fly-Cruise opportunities, which will pave the way for the return of Explorer Dream to Australia again in Q4 of 2020,” informed Goh.
Explorer Dream offers round-trip cruise itineraries across Australia departing from Sydney and Brisbane between now and 1 December 2019 and 9 to 23 February 2020.
Explorer Dream debuted in the premium and luxury Asian market in April this year, joining her sister ships Genting Dream and World Dream. The luxury ship measures 268 meters in length, 32 meters in width and has a total gross tonnage of 75,338 tons, featuring 928 cabins with lower berth capacity of 1,856 passengers. There are 17 restaurants onboard, three retail outlets and six entertainment centres. The ship also boasts two uber-luxe ‘Palace villas’ decked out with private VIP facilities and their own swimming pool, lounge and dining venues in Italian decor, with a dedicated team of “dream butlers” standing by to tend to guest’s experience.
