Genting Dream Cruises has been accepting passengers since November, becoming just the second cruise line to return to operations.
Singapore.- Genting Dream Cruises has received its 100,000th passenger since it relaunched operations back in November 2020.
Its “cruise to nowhere” became just the second cruise ship to return to operations since the start of the pandemic, adopting Covid-19 measures onboard to protect guests and staff.
Each cruise takes around 1,400 passengers in line with a 50 per cent limited capacity limit, yet after just four months of operation, the line has carried 100,000 passengers.
Dream Cruises President Michael Goh, said: “Having pioneered the safe pilot cruises in Singapore, we are excited to be part of this important milestone to celebrate Marina Bay Cruise Centre Singapore’s 100,000th cruise passenger since the program started.”
As for many other companies in the gaming and hospitality industry, the past year has been challenging. Genting Singapore reported that its full-year revenue for 2020 fell by nearly 90 per cent, resulting in the worst financial performance since the opening of its Resorts World Sentosa property in 2010.
Analysts at Kenanga Research have reported that the recovery of the regional leisure, hospitality and integrated resorts giant will largely depend on the lifting of current travel restrictions.
