Hong Kong, 19 October 2018 – Dream Cruises welcomed its 1 millionth passenger with a celebration at Hong Kong’s Kai Tak Cruise Terminal upon her disembarkation from World Dream on Friday, 19 October, 2018. Hong Kong resident, Ms Mimi Lo, was welcomed at the cruise terminal with a short celebration and ceremony attended by Mr Thatcher Brown, President of Dream Cruises, Jeff Bent, Managing Director of Worldwide Cruise Terminals, Captain Robert Bodin of World Dream, Ms Christine Li, Senior Vice President, Head of Marketing & Communications, Genting Cruise Lines and Ms Ann Zhang, Hotel Director of World Dream.
“On behalf of Dream Cruise, I would like to congratulate our 1-millionth guest on Dream Cruises, Ms Mimi Lo. It is fortuitous that this important milestone is taking place during Genting Hong Kong’s 25th Anniversary,” said Mr Thatcher Brown, President of Dream Cruises. “As this is her second time on board our ship, I would like to personally thank Ms Lo for her continued support of Dream Cruises and hope to see her on another cruise very soon.”
“Thank you Dream Cruises for this wonderful surprise,” said Ms Mimi Lo. “Dream Cruises provides my family with an ideal vacation option that not only appeals to me but also offers a choice of activities for my children and my parents as well. We have also been impressed with the facilities in The Palace and appreciate the great service from our butlers and all the crew members on board.”
Ms Lo embarked on her World Dream voyage on Sunday, 14 October for a 6-day/5-night journey to Naha and Miyakojima in Okinawa, Japan, with three generations of her family. On board World Dream, Ms Lo and her family were surprised with special gifts including signed prints by artist Jacky Tsai, who also created the ship’s distinctive hull art, a private tour of the bridge, exclusive photo shoot and champagne and other treats.
Making her debut in November of 2017, World Dream represented a major milestone in Hong Kong's rise as a cruise ship hub as the first mega-cruise ship to be christened in the city and, along with sister ship, Genting Dream, previously, the biggest cruise ship to call this city her year-round home.
“I am extremely proud of how quickly Dream Cruises has grown since its launch just under two years ago,” added Mr Brown. “It is truly a testament to our remarkable crew and reflects the support we have received from government bodies, our business partners, the media and the public that we have reached our 1-millionth passenger in such a short period.”
