Asian luxury cruise line Dream Cruises has just launched its Summer 2017 cruise itineraries aboard inaugural ship, Genting Dream.
Starting April 2, Genting Dream will set sail from its dual homeports of Hong Kong and Nansha, Guangzhou on five-night voyages to the idyllic destinations of Naha and Miyakojima in Okinawa, Japan. Sailing through the summer, guests who are looking for a quick escape can also enjoy a two-night weekend cruise sailing from Hong Kong.
“We are delighted to introduce Genting Dream’s first ‘Summer Cruise Season’ which also marks its maiden cruise to Okinawa, Japan,” company president Thatcher Brown said.
“With the success of our current Vietnam cruises, we are further developing exhilarating itineraries that will capture the beauty and diversity of Asia and excite the passions of our guests. With pristine beaches, crystal clear water and myriad cultural and historic attractions, Okinawa Japan is a natural and popular choice for Genting Dream this summer,” he added.
Two state-of-the-art submersibles on board Genting Dream are also available for guests who want to explore the spectacular sights under the Okinawan waters and marvel at the dazzling array of marine life and seascapes for an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime experience.
A remarkable range of events aboard the luxury liner include educational and stimulating lectures on the historical ties between Okinawa and China along with award-winning, world-class photographers, motivational thought leaders, and iconic explorers of land, sea and space. There is also the innovative Space Camps for Kids and a Mermaid Academy at Sea for families to enjoy.
