Dream Cruises New 151,300 ton, Genting Dream has started her conveyance journey down the Ems River in Papenburg, Germany. The conveyance is when the ships navigates backwards down the river toward her final destination - the North Sea. The ship navigates backward because the forcing of the water underneath the ship by the azipod propulsion system actually lifts the vessel and allow for additional clearance between the hull and the river bottom. The entire conveyance takes about 12 hours depending on the tides.
The Genting Dream which is being built by Germany's Meyer Werft will undergo sea trials and final outfitting before being handed over to her new owners on October 12, 2016.
The Genting Dream is expected to conduct her inaugural cruise from Asia in November, 2016.
