Hong Kong – Dream Cruises, Genting Cruise Lines’ luxury cruise brand, continued the roll-out of its new The Palace privileges at a private launch event on board World Dream on Friday, 15 March, in Hong Kong, unveiling a dazzling array of updated benefits for guests in the brand’s signature, high-end ‘ship-within-a-ship’ concept across it fleet.

To further enhance the experience for guests in The Palace, Dream Cruises is rolling-out an expanded menu of all-inclusive privileges that will provide even more opportunities for pampering and indulgence with luxury culinary and gastronomic delights and a new range of activities as part of World Dream’s exciting enrichment programme, The Connoisseurs Circle.

“Following the successful launch of our new The Palace privileges in Singapore, we are proud to continue to introduce our exclusive signature exclusive luxury enclave in our priority markets in North Asia and Greater China,” said Mr. Thatcher Brown, President of Dream Cruises. “Our expression of “True Asian Luxury”, The Palace experience is distinguished by exemplary hospitality, world-class regional food and beverage delicacies and a compelling roster of enrichment activities in The Connoisseurs Circle – all part of The Palace’s enhanced all-inclusive benefits.”

The Palace event was hosted by Sean Lee-Davies, local television host, photographer and philanthropist, and was highlighted by a special performance that blended the distinctive musical stylings of Cantonese opera with World Dream’s resident western opera vocalist and accompanied by a dazzling display of aquatic artistry by the ship’s synchronized swimmers.

During the event, special guest star, Lady Victoria Hervey, British model, socialite and aristocrat kicked-off The Connoisseurs Circle with an exclusive fashion show to unveil her new bathing suit line, Ladyship Swim Collection.
