Cruise passengers will now have the option to depart from either Malaysia or Singapore, as Resorts World Cruises becomes the first cruise line to add a Kuala Lumpur home port for its ship Genting Dream beginning July 18.

The dual homeport was designed to cater for the demand of round-trip cruises among the 10 million population residing in central Peninsular Malaysia, who live within a short drive of Port Klang, the embarkation port.

“Resorts World Cruises is excited to take the lead for the cruise sector to boost the in-and-outbound tourists for Singapore; and to bring cruising to the ‘doorsteps’ of Malaysians residing in central Peninsular Malaysia as they can depart from Kuala Lumpur, which is convenient and affordable,” said Resorts World Cruises president Michael Goh.

He added that the ship's halal-friendly reputation will appeal to a significant segment of local and international travelers across the region.

The cruise line will be offering two- and three-night cruises. In addition to that, the company will also offer one-way cruises.

The latter option will become an alternative to air and land travel for the millions of travelers between Singapore and KL, including to Penang.

Travellers from Malaysia will depart on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

As part of the company's requirement, all passengers need to be fully vaccinated.
