Asia’s newest luxury and dynamic lifestyle cruise brand, Resorts World Cruises, celebrated a new milestone with its maiden voyage to Surabaya (Indonesia) onboard the Genting Dream ship with 3,500+ passengers from her dual homeports in Malaysia (Port Klang) and Singapore.

In addition to Surabaya, the ship will also call at North Bali the following day as part of Resorts World Cruises' special Indonesia itinerary to celebrate the year-end holiday period.

Mr. Michael Goh, President of Resorts World Cruises said the company was excited to include both Surabaya/North Bali as destinations for the special Indonesia voyage from both their homeports. He added Indonesia remained "an important cruise market with huge potential both as a destination and source market for the FlyCruise sector."

"We would like to thank the local authorities, travel and business partners, media and consumers for their ongoing support, as we continue to work closely together to revitalize the cruise and tourism sector in Indonesia and across the region in a post-COVID era."

During the visit to Surabaya, passengers disembarking had the chance to explore many of the hidden gems of the city, which include popular landmarks such as the view of Putuk Truno Waterfall or Mount Penanggugan in Tretes; the Four Faced Buddha monument with the largest and tallest Four Faces Deity statue in Indonesia; shopping at Pasar Genteng/Tunjungan Plaza, and more.

The following day the Indonesian journey continues in North Bali, as the ship makes a stop to offer guests more local attractions: photo-worthy places like Kekeran Rice Terrace, the protected sanctuary of Plataran Menjangan Resort Bali and West Bali, or diving in the waters of Menjangan Island.
