Genting Cruise Lines has revealed “A Dream Through Time and Space”, the artwork that will adorn the cruise line’s new Global Dream.
As arguably the most identifiable feature of a cruise ship, the hull artwork is another important milestone in the development of any cruise ship and sets the personality of the ship.
A DREAM THROUGH TIME AND SPACE
Designed by Shanghai native and London based Illustrator Shan Jiang, “A Dream Through Time and Space” continues the epic journey of the mermaid and the astronaut as they seek to satisfy their boundless curiosity and explore an infinite universe – driven by the desire for the extraordinary. Embodying the independent and fearless spirit of a new generation of travellers, the two worlds of the mermaid and astronaut blend together, resulting in a new way to explore the seven seas – one that combines age-old maritime tradition with space-age technology.
Accommodating over 9,000 passengers and with lower berth capacity of 4,700 passengers, Global Dream will be the largest cruise ships in the world by passenger capacity and bring affordable, high-end cruising to a wide range of passengers with 2,350 cabins consisting of a variety of categories including villas, penthouses, suites, themed suites, balcony cabins and inside cabins. Global Dream will also feature Dream Cruises’ signature 151-suite luxury “ship-within-a-ship’ concept, “Dream Palace”.
Global Dream’s cabins will feature cutting edge, state-of-the-art technology, redefining the concept of cruising with Bluetooth locks and a new smart system, enabling passengers to control different functions such as the LED mood lighting and climate control with a smartphone app, voice recognition or through a touch-screen control panel. Smart sensors will also be able to detect occupants in the cabin to automatically adjust the lights and temperature for better energy efficiency and triple vent air-conditioning outlets ensure even air distribution for maximum comfort.
THE WORLD’S LONGEST ROLLER COASTER AT SEA
Global Dream will offer a variety of innovative new features and facilities such as the first-ever theme park concept at sea: “Dream Park at the Pier”, highlighted by the “Space Cruiser”, the world’s longest roller coaster at sea. Global Dream will aslo feature the largest cinema at sea with eight theatres to meet the leisure and entertainment needs of all travellers.
With something for everyone, “Dream Park at the Pier” assembles a myriad of attractions including:
- “Bounce Activity Park” – Spread out over the size of a basketball court, this inflatable park isn’t the same old bouncy castles found at kiddie parties. Guests can run, bounce, dance and jump their way around the massive bouncy obstacle course for the ultimate nostalgia trip.
- “Jump!” – Bounce around to your heart’s content in a special trampoline park that will have you jumping for joy!
- “Shark Bay” – Unleash your inner daredevil on our bungee trampoline. Accomplish acrobatic feats while attached to a safety harness for maximum fun.
- “Wipe Out” – Ride the waves at our on board surf simulator. Whether you hang ten or hang out, you’ll have a wet and wild time with your friends.
- “Cosmic Chaos” – Spin, twirl, give it a whirl. Become a human gyro and get ready to tumble.
- “Kranky Kraken” – Kiddies can make friends with our amiable octopus and fly around in one of his many arms.
- “Little Dreamers Ride” – Tiny tots can test their driving skills in our mini karts for some race-car hijinks – all in a safe and controlled environment.
Singapore’s homegrown and internationally renowned nightlife brand, Zouk, the 3rd best club in the world, will also have a presence on Global Dream while Dream Avenue will provide guests with a multi-purpose outdoor leisure and recreational space.
Building on the successful debuts of Genting Dream, World Dream and Explorer Dream, Dream Cruises’ new 208,000 gross tonne ship, Global Dream, is currently under construction at Genting Hong Kong’s very own MV Werften shipyard in Germany. Global Dream is set to enter into service in early 2021 and will invite more Asian guests to cruise worldwide on inspiring voyages on board the largest cruise ship to homeport in the Asia Pacific region.
