By ,   August 16, 2016 ,   Cruise Industry

On August 20, 2016 the 151, 300 GT Genting Dream will float out of Meyer Werft's covered building dock II.

The shipyard has been busy over the last few weeks conducting interior work, machinery trials and extensive tests. The float-out of the ship, built for the Asian cruise operator Dream Cruises, will commence at around 8.00 a.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.

Genting Dream 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.
