Resort World Cruises announced the beginning of cruises to Phuket aboard the Genting Dream starting in November.
The Genting Dream will embark on its three- and five-night cruises departing from Singapore and Kuala Lumpur from November 2022 through April 2024.
“The response for Genting Dream’s two- and three-night has been very positive and is gaining strong momentum in demand. As such, the introduction of Phuket as a cruise destination is timely and will further fuel the growth of the domestic and FlyCruise markets in the region. Also, vacationers will now have more travel choices to Phuket, including the comfort and convenience of a cruise ship, which are inclusive of meals, recreational activities and entertainment,” said Mr. Michael Goh, President of Resorts World Cruises.
“With the ongoing support of the Tourism of Thailand Authority, we will continue to work closely together to develop Phuket as a key cruise destination for Resorts World Cruises,” Goh added.
