GLOBAL CLASS NAMING CONTEST
To commemorate Genting Hong Kong’s 25th Anniversary and in anticipation for the debut of Dream Cruises’ newest class of ship in 2020, Dream Cruises has launched a naming contest to propose a name, in English and/or Chinese, for the new cruise liner. The new Global Class ship will provide 5,000 lower berths with 9,500 maximum passenger capacity, among the highest in the current cruise industry. Featuring 2,500 large, family-style cabins, accommodations on board the Global Class will be able to sleep two, three, or four passengers in comfort, while a thoughtful split bathroom design will allow for two guests to use the facilities simultaneously.
Not only will the Global Class be the largest cruise ship to be built in Germany, she will also be the most technologically advanced in the world. Cutting-edge technology, including facial and voice recognition will enhance and streamline the on board experience for guests and make the transition from shore to ship as seamless as possible.
The contest will be divided into two categories for the general public and for travel agents with one winner from each category receiving a very special prize:
- General Public Prize: 25 Complimentary Cruises on board the new Global Class ship
- Travel Agents/Partners: HKD 1 Million in Global Class ship cabin equivalent (to be awarded to the travel agency)
