Float-out likely to start on 19th August 2016

On 19th August 2016 the 151, 300-gt cruise ship GENTING DREAM will float out of MEYER WERFT's covered building dock II. Over the last few weeks the shipyard has been busy conducting extensive tests, interior work and machinery trials. The float-out of the ship, which is built for the Asian cruise operator Dream Cruises, will commence around 14.00 p.m. Following the float-out and more tests to be carried out in the harbor, the ship will be berthed alongside the yard's outfitting pier.

Delays in the time schedule due to weather conditions may occur.

With the ship being berthed at the yard's pier, the remaining work as well as tests and trials will be carried out in the next few days. The GENTING DREAM´s conveyance down the river Ems towards the North Sea, where she will prove her seaworthiness, is scheduled for mid-September 2016.

The 151,300 gt cruise ship has a length overall of 335 m and is 39,70 m wide. Its construction complies with the latest safety standards, and the ship meets all valid environmental regulations.
