Dream Cruises’ first ship features distinctive exterior LED display

The lighting can create a variety of special effects, including words
Genting Dream's vivid hull artwork is distinctive by day. Now it's been revealed the ship will be equally eye-catching by night thanks to new special-effects lighting.

The sophisticated LED balcony lighting bathes the hull in a kaleidoscope of vibrant colour combinations and can even spell out words like 'dream cruise.'

According to Dream Cruises, the lighting display system is new to the cruise industry. It will be 'appreciated by guests on board and by audiences on shore as [Genting Dream] enters and leaves harbours across Asia,' president Thatcher Brown said.

The LED lighting devices were developed by Wärtsilä FUNA Group, a global technology solutions provider offering design, engineering, integration and consulting services for entertainment, lighting and communication systems.

Genting Dream is in final outfitting prior to its delivery from Meyer Werft this month.

Designed for Asian, mainly Chinese travelers, the ship will be based in Guangzhou (Nansha) and Hong Kong.
