World Dream - heading to Hong Kong for cruises to China and Vietnam
Meyer Werft handed over Dream Cruises' second new ship, World Dream, the sister of 2016's Genting Dream.

The 151,300gt vessel stretches 335 meters in length, 39.7 meters at the beam and has capacity for 3,376 pasengers.

About 75% of the accommodations have ocean views, and most of those are balcony cabins. There are 18 restaurants and a dozen bars and lounges, a climbing park and other outdoor activities and a large range of virtual reality entertainment.

A mini-submarine can take four passengers to a depth of up to 200 meters, while a motorboat that can be rented for excursions zip along at 37 knots or 68 km/h.

World Dream is equipped with three 12V and two 14V MAN Diesel engines with a combined output of 76,800 kW. The ship has 41,000 kW of propulsion power and can reach a speed of 23.4 knots.

World Dream is registered in the Bahamas and DNV GL is the classification society.

Following its delivery in Bremerhaven, World Dream is heading to Asia to operate cruises of two, five and seven nights from Hong Kong to ports in Vietnam and China.

This is the 44th cruise ship delivered by Meyer Werft.

'Our team did a great job. I am proud and thankful for their contribution,' said Tim Meyer, the yard's managing partner.
