Dream Cruises’ Explorer Dream makes maiden call to Hong Kong

Explorer Dream arriving in Hong Kong

Explorer Dream made her maiden call to Hong Kong on Tuesday. The Dream Cruises’ vessel is now continuing on  her 19-night voyage with calls to Singapore, Vietnam, Indonesia and Australia, ending in Sydney, where she will begin the first-ever homeport deployment of Dream Cruises outside of Asia.

Explorer Dream is the former Star Cruises’ SuperStar Virgo that proved popular with Australians when she relocated to Sydney from Singapore in 2003.

The 268mtr long underwent a US$50m transformation earlier this year in readiness to be the first in the Dream Cruises fleet to sail outside of Asian waters.

The 1,856 passenger ship features The Palace – a luxury ship within a ship space, a majority of its suites at over 40sq mtr, as well as Proprietary Butler Training endorsed by affiliated company Crystal Cruises.
