Resorts World Cruises will be resuming cruises from Hong Kong with the Resorts World One from 10 March 2023, offering two- and three-night high-seas cruises, departing every Friday, Sunday and Wednesday of the week.

“We are pleased that Resorts World Cruises will have the first cruise ship to homeport in Hong Kong after the resumption of normal travel with the Mainland and overseas. We hope to support the growth of the Hong Kong tourism as we had done for both Singapore and Malaysia”Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay, Chairman of Resorts World Cruises
The Genting Dream resumed cruising in Singapore and Kuala Lumpur via Port Klang from June 2022. Demand for cruise passengers has been above pre-COVID-19 levels for the second half of last year.
Resorts World One is chartered by Resorts World Cruises. She will replace Genting Dream’s regular 2- and 3-night itineraries from 17 February to 1 March 2023 as Genting Dream goes into dry-dock for regular maintenance. Resorts World One will offer a special 5-night repositioning cruise from Singapore, calling at Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang, prior to arriving in Hong Kong on 8 March. Passengers can embark from Kuala Lumpur via Port Klang for this re-positing cruise on 2 March, making it a six-night cruise calling at Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang before arriving in Hong Kong on 8 March.
“It’s been an exciting journey so far and we are looking forward to starting our next chapter in 2023 with the introduction of the Resorts World One cruise ship. The ship will increase tourist arrivals and generate economic benefits to the hotels, transport, suppliers and other service sectors in Hong Kong. Resorts World One will berth at the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, contributing revenue to the government owned facility.”Mr. Michael Goh, President of Resorts World Cruises.
