Dream Cruises is targeting the meetings and incentives market in Asia and the Pacific with its first ship Genting Dream.
Positioning itself as a one-stop shop for MICE events, the line provides a dedicated contact for event organisers and aims to offer a greater return on investment than land-based venues by having all meals, entertainment, and transportation included in the cruise price.
Onboard, the ship has facilities for events of all sizes including its Zodiac Theatre with seating for 999 people and room for performances and presentations. Genting Dream also features function and seminar spaces including Tributes which has seating for 170 people. The space can also be used for cocktail events, which can fit approximately 244 people.
There are also smaller meeting rooms that can fit six people, while for larger cocktail parties the Palm Court at the rear of the ship can fit 495 people.
With cruise ships offering more and more activities to keep passengers occupied at sea, the Genting Dream has mini golf, rock climbing, a ropes course, zip line and water slides that can be utilised for team-building exercises.
Genting Dream offers five-night itineraries from Hong Kong to Japan. From December, the ship will cruise from Singapore offering five-night itineraries to Indonesia or Malaysia and Thailand.
