Genting Dream to the Rescue

The Genting Dream was quick to respond to a sinking boat in distress and performed a life-saving rescue operation off the coast of Tanjung Pelepas in Johor, Malaysia, on Nov. 1.

After being informed by Johor’s Vessel Traffic Information System (VTIS) in the early morning on Nov. 1 of the sinking boat, the crew led, by Captain Jukka Silvennoinen of the Genting Dream saved three men from the sinking boat and brought them aboard the Genting Dream, where they received special medical care and assistance.

“Dream Cruises compliments Captain Jukka Silvennoinen and his crew aboard Genting Dream for their swift response in rescuing and aiding the three men from their sinking boat and bringing them to safety aboard the ship,” said Michael Goh, president of Dream Cruises.

The three rescued men were subsequently transferred to a Malaysian Coast Guard vessel where they were transported safely back to shore.
