On July 3, 2022, we will also sail from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur and Malacca (via Port Dickson) and Penang in Malaysia. We will continue to include more popular destinations to Phuket and Krabi in Thailand and North Bali in Indonesia from October 2022 onwards to provide our vacationers with more destination options”, RWC president Michael Goh said in a statement yesterday.

“We would also like to thank the Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand governments for their ongoing support in launching destination cruises with Resorts World Cruises”, he added.

Meanwhile, Director, Cruise of Singapore Tourism Board (STB) Annie Chang said the additional destinations by RWC strengthen Singapore’s cruise offerings, giving even more options for domestic and international cruisers.

“STB will continue to work closely with our regional counterparts to reopen more ports and reinvigorate the cruise industry in South-East Asia,” she said in the same statement.

“We are looking forward to welcoming Resorts World Cruises and the Genting Dream to the Bintan and Batam islands in Indonesia in early July this year. With Resorts World Cruises taking on a pioneering role to restart destination cruises in Indonesia, we are confident that together, we will rejuvenate the regional cruise tourism industry”, Dr Sandiaga Salahuddin Uno, minister of Tourism and Creative Economy of the Republic of Indonesia said.

With the comfort and convenience of the Genting Dream, a “Resort Cruising on High Seas” from Singapore, guests can look forward to the first destination cruise on July 1 2022 with the 2-Night Bintan and Batam Islands Weekend Getaway Cruise departing on Fridays. –TMR
