SURIA FM Becomes First Malaysian Radio Station to Broadcast Onboard

Record Attempt

Malaysia’s Suria FM made history by becoming the first radio station in the country to broadcast live from a cruise ship.

The milestone was achieved during a three-night round trip cruise on the Genting Dream, operated by Resorts World Cruises, which set sail from Port Klang, Malaysia on January 9, 2023.

The partnership between Suria FM and Resorts World Cruises began in mid-November 2022, to celebrate the station’s 15th anniversary.

Michael Goh, president of Resorts World Cruises, said: “Our collaboration is timely as our ship continues to homeport in Port Klang until early 2024 to offer a series of cruises to Penang, Singapore and Phuket with certified Halal food and beverage offerings, enabling us to further grow and promote cruise vacations as an option among Malaysians, especially for the Malay market segment.”

To mark the occasion, the Malaysia Book of Records presented certificates to Suria FM and Resorts World Cruises during a ceremony held on the ship.

For the Malaysia Book of Records attempt, Resorts World Cruises hosted 71 guests on the Genting Dream including SURIA FM’s local DJs, lucky radio contest winners, crew and technical sound engineering, as well as Malaysian celebrities, influencers, media and also the Malaysia Book of Records official representatives.
