The Genting Dream is now moored off the coast of Patong Beach for 1 one day layover for shopping in Phuket’s main tourist town.

The Genting Dream, launched and christened in 2016, is 335 metres long, and can carry up to 3,300 passengers along with 1,700 crew across 18 decks.  The ship is owned by Resorts World Cruises.

This time the ship is on a five day cruise out of Singapore and arrived in Patong at 7am this morning after a stopover in Penang the day before, and left Singapore last Sunday. It will head southward again after the trip to Phuket, via Langkawi and Port Klang in KL.

The passengers are mainly from Singapore, Malaysia, India and Taiwan.

Just in case you’re tempted, The Genting Dream has 35 restaurants, a marine water park with 6 slides and a swimming pool. It also has rock-climbing, a rope course, a zipline and spa. The ship is also the world’s first OIC/SMIIC Halal certified cruise ship.
