Asia’s Genting Cruise Line has unveiled the concept and design behind the new artwork that will adorn the hull of Dream Cruises’ newest family member, the 75,338-gross-ton, 1,870 passenger Explorer Dream, which is currently undergoing a comprehensive upgrade before her launch later this month.
The new hull artwork by New York-based, Chinese artist, Kuri Huang continues the brand’s signature mermaid brand icon as the ethereal hull painting beckons viewers to ride upon “Waves of Dreams” in a whimsical and colourful ode to exploration and discovery.
The artwork on the hull of Explorer Dream continues the mermaid brand icon made famous by her sister ships Genting Dream and World Dream. Huang’s fresh, new take on the myth of the mermaid sees a softer, almost impressionistic, approach to the depiction of this iconic figure and also introduces the dream-like figure of the unicorn to further personify the spirit of exploration and discovery.
Upgraded facilities on board Explorer Dream will include exciting entertainment and leisure spaces including the virtual reality ESC Experience Lab, Zodiac Theatre, the Palm Court observatory lounge and a spectacular new lobby atrium area with additional world-class dining experiences with the introduction of Seafood Grill by Mark Best, Mozzarella Ristorante & Pizzeria and Umi Uma Sushi & Teppenyaki.
Explorer Dream will strengthen the Dream Cruises’ brand in North China with homeports in Shanghai and Tianjin during Spring/Summer 2019 with a selection of voyages of various durations from Shanghai or Tianjin to picturesque destinations in ever-popular Japan.
